2012 Toyota Venza Overview

For those who desire the drivability of a car with the utility of an SUV, the 2012 Toyota Venza large hatchback/wagon is sure to please.

Last year, the Venza was available in just the base trim but Toyota decided to shuffle the deck for 2012 by providing three trim levels (LE, XLE, and Limited) to make better sense of the various options. On top of the new trims, a Towing Package has been added to V-6 models. The Venza seats five and competes with crossovers and hatchback wagons alike including the Ford Edge, Mazda CX-7, and Subaru Tribeca.

Although the Venza and Camry are very similar, sharing a chassis and engine options, the Venza is in a league of its own when it comes to versatility. It features twice the cargo space of the Camry behind its second row (30.7 cubic feet) and more double than that if you fold down the rear seats (70.2 cubic feet).

In terms of power, the LE and XLE can be equipped with a 182-horsepower, 2.7-liter four-cylinder or a 268-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6, while the Limited comes only with the V-6. All engines are paired to a six-speed automatic and power is sent through the front wheels, though all-wheel drive is available on all models. EPA estimated fuel ratings for the Venza vary between 18-21 mpg in the city and 25-27 mpg on the highway (lower numbers for all-wheel drive/V-6 versions).

The exterior of the 2012 Venza comes equipped with standard projector-beam headlights, integrated fog lights, heated power mirrors, 20-inch alloy wheels, privacy glass, rear spoiler, and chrome-tipped exhaust. A power rear liftgate, panoramic glass roof with front power moonroof, chrome-accented door handles, and High Intensity Discharge (HID) headlights with Automatic High Beam control are available.

Inside, the Venza also comes with many standard features, including dual-zone automatic air conditioning, cruise control, 8-way power driver’s seat, carbon fiber-style trim and a six-speaker audio system with an auxiliary input jack, USB port, and Bluetooth® streaming capability. The XLE adds leather-trimmed multi-stage heated front seats, leather-trimmed reclining, and one-touch fold-flat rear seats. Further options include a 13-speaker JBL Synthesis six-disc changer audio system and a voice-activated, touch-screen DVD navigation system with an integrated backup camera.

Like most other Toyotas, safety features abound in the form of standard antilock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution, brake assist, an electronic stability system, and seven airbags.

So if you’re looking for a vehicle with the mild road manners of a Camry, but still has plenty of room for things, the 2012 Toyota Venza offers the best of both worlds.
