2009 Toyota Venza 4dr Wagon AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


We picked up our new Venza yesterday, 3.5 V-6, AWD, leather, nav, tow pkg - all options except rear DVD. Very impressive vehicle, outstanding build quality inside and out, solid handling and cornering, fast (0-60 in 6.8 sec) excellent ride, reasonable mileage as near as we can determine, but it's a bit early for numbers. The nav and audio are a lot more user friendly and better integrated than the system in our '05 Odyssey. The floor is flat for easy entry/exit and the rocker panels are totally covered by the doors. Clever touch, especially for the gals, keeps your clothes clean in rainy conditions. Dual moon roof adds a large rear non-opening panel. A crossover-wagon mix, excellent.

Best Features

Nav-audio-Bluetooth integration, back seat room (scads of it), dual moonroof, innovative door design and construction, excellent power and ride, System display panel centered under windshield prevents driving distraction. (I am a retired USAF research pilot and cockpit design is very important!)

Worst Features

Only one - for some reason, memory seats are not an option. OK for us, the heated 8 way & 4 way power seats are fine, but those whose spouses are much shorter or taller may wish for it. And some may desire cooled seats as well, like on the Avalon.
