My wife and I fell in love with this car the moment we saw it. We liked the Blizzard Pearl exterior paint the best. Great styling,Very pleasant ride, and the interior is designed very well. I could hardly believe the way it handles the road. Our Camry was OK, but this car is far and away more fun to drive. We also enjoy being able to enter and leave the vehicle without any hassle, owing to the added height. I would say that this is the Best Crossover on the market for the money.
Styling is what sold us. Not top heavy like most SUVs. Of course, Toyota's commitment to quality was evident everywhere, both inside and out.
I was a little surprised that it did not come with side door dent protectors. However, for a minimal cost, I purchased an after market set of bumpers strips designed just for the Venza that fixed that problem nicely.
