2014 Toyota Highlander vs. 2014 Toyota Venza Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Toyota Highlander offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Toyota Venza, with comparable head- and legroom. The Toyota Highlander will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota Venza.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Toyota Highlander as you will with the Toyota Venza, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Toyota Highlander is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota Venza. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Toyota Highlander and the Toyota Venza have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Toyota Highlander is a little wider than the Toyota Venza, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Toyota Highlander takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota Venza.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Toyota Highlander does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Toyota Venza.

Handling
The Toyota Highlander has a smaller turning radius than the Toyota Venza, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Toyota Highlander is clearly the choice over the Toyota Venza for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Toyota Highlander greatly out-muscles the Toyota Venza.

Utility
Soccer Moms and those who need to chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Toyota Highlander more than the Toyota Venza, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. The Toyota Highlander has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Toyota Venza.

Warranty
The Toyota Highlander comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Venza.
