2010 Toyota Venza 4dr Wagon AWD (2.7L 4cyl 6A)


Resembles a 2008 Lexus RX with fewer features and a reasonable price tag. Traded an '08 Outback for the Venza because of the need for more rear-seat room. The Venza's 4-cylinder engine is adequate but works hard on steep grades. The 6-AT is buttery smooth, which makes the engine tolerable. Quiet ride. Strong brakes. Solid feel. Build quality is above par, although the molding of a few dash panes could be better. Also, odd metallic sound from under the car is heard when the rear doors are closed. Comfortable, supportive seats. LOTS of passenger space. Clear gauges and instrumentation. Poor snow traction with OEM tires. Overall well-appointed base model. few interior dash panels

Best Features

Top-notch passive safety (Top Safety Pick from the IIHS; good government scores). Complete active safety feature list (AWD, VSC, traction control, EBD). Passenger space. Smooth, quiet ride. Solid feel. Toyota durability. Value and quality. for the price.

Worst Features

Provide better OEM tires (not Bridgestone Duellers). Scrap the 4-cylinder engine, as the gas mileage from it is not much better than with the 6-cylinder variant. Make a bumper protector standard equipment (this is a crossover vehicle). Better steering feel (currently, it is numb to loosely affiliated with road feed-back).etter OEM tires (Bridgestone Dueller H/L). Scrap the 4-cylinder engine, as the gas mileage is not much better but performance suffers.
