If it doesn’t have it, you don’t need it.

We traded a Lexus 350 in for Venda LTD Hybrid. The Venda came equipped with virtually every extra we could think off. I won’t go into details offered by other reviewers other than to say I agree with them. We have had Chevys, Pontiacs, Mercedes, Lexuses, VWs, and a few others, and the Venza is the best of the lot, especially when you factor in MPG, styling and cost. Its comparative rating is knocked down for a lack of space in the rear, but it is perfectly fine for a couple who do not tow. I recommend it without qualification or reservation.

I traded my 2017 Lexus RX350 for the 2023 hybrid Venza. While not as posh the Venza’s driving characteristics are similar to the Lexus and it has more technology and driver safety features in a slightly smaller package. Best of all my current overall efficiency since buying the Venza is 40 plus miles per gallon.

10,000 Mile Update: After 7 months/10,000 miles, still happy with the purchase. The MPG has ranged between 41-45 mpg in suburban driving and 35-39 mpg on the Interstate measured at the pump. After living with the Venza for 7 months, IMO, it is best suited for singles, couples without children, or families of four or less without small children. Cargo is fine for our purposes but if we had small children with strollers and other bulky items I would go with the Sienna for increased cargo capacity. It's efficient in city/suburban driving with a good view of the road. The Venza excels on road trips. It’s quite, the ride is composed, the driver's seat is comfortable, there is plenty power, excellent mpg, it has radar cruise control with lane keeping assist, and it's heavy and aerodynamic enough not to get pushed around in the wind. The result is you do not become as fatigued on long drives. The ultimate road trip vehicle! Cons: Cargo - fine for groceries, ect, but not enough for bulky items without the rear seats down. Also, very large people over 6 2' may find head room limited. Anyone 6 2' and under should be fine. Original Review: After giving my 2016 Prius to a family member, I needed a new ride. The Prius was an excellent car but I wanted a change. The Venza has many attributes that make the Prius great; made in Japan reliability, efficient hybrid power train (44 mpg in suburban FL driving/37 on the interstate), and unique Japanese styling. The Venza a/k/a Harrier, like the Prius, is a Japanese market car. The Japanese styling aesthetic appeals to my taste so couldn’t be happier with the look of the car. The Venza is quick ( 0 to 60 in 7.6 seconds), quiet and a great highway cruiser. It’s relatively roomy but easy to handle. The LE trim has buttons and knobs so it avoids the complaint of no knobs on the higher trims. The LE’s 18 inch wheels also make for better ride. Very happy with the purchase. It’s like an updated early 2000s Lexus RX. The Venza is perfect for someone looking for practical, reliable, AWD transportation with some luxury elements.

We are retired and have looked for a vehicle to replace our Rogue which we liked, but wanted something that gave us better mileage as well as overall nicer more luxurious feel. What we found to meet all of those criteria we settled on a 2023 Venza, which we love. The only shortfall is lack of hauling capacity, which is not as important to us as it used to be. The seats are very comfortable and love the ability to just say, "Hey Toyota take us to where we want to go". Our son who drives a Lexus RX tried to convince us to get one, but could not see the $12,000 difference in price and after seeing and drive our new car he was convinced as well. We cannot figure out why this model is not selling compared to the Rav4, which is not nearly as nice. You can't go wrong with a Venza!

Vamos Venza!

Okay, I couldn't resist the Spanish language title because of my Spanish lessons. But it does accurately capture how I feel about driving this car. Let's go! There is a lot to love about this vehicle so here goes: 1. The ride: This car drives like a luxury vehicle. The interior cabin is quiet and very comfortable. I've had numerous back injuries over the past twenty years, and I can say w/o hesitation that this car is the MOST COMFORTABLE car I have ever driven. In my life! You can adjust the driver seat to the position that suits you best. You'll come to find driving this car is a breeze. Easy around town or the highway. The Tech: Toyota has been notorious as a laggard where car tech is concerned but I have to give them high marks for catching up to their competitors. The one area where they dropped the ball was wireless connectivity for Apple Carplay. You have to plug the phone into a USB port which is strange given the car has WiFI hotspot capability. Nonetheless, the technology works seamlessly once you're plugged in and it's easy to use the 8-inch screen. The Venza comes Alexa enabled and you can easily train the car to recognize your voice if you prefer to give commands in that manner. Otherwise, the button controls are fairly similar to Toyota vehicles from past years. Gas mileage: Given that we are in the midst of gas price hikes beyond what anyone could imagine, you'll be happy to know that so far, I'm getting about 50-60 miles per gallon. Yup, you read that right. Highway and city driving. Of course, I practice good driving habits and do not have a heavy foot so that makes a difference. Still, it was gratifying to know I only had to spend $19 to fill half a tank. The expert reviews on trunk capacity and back seat space are pretty accurate. This is not what I would characterize as a family SUV. Trunk space is limited so if you have kids, this isn't a great choice especially if you do family getaways. One last thing. Whether you buy this car or another Toyota, ignore the App Store reviews of the Toyota App. The app works as intended and has a lot of nice features (locking and unlocking as well as remote start). The people who left one-star reviews clearly do not know how to use a smartphone.
