We are a family of five and everyone is tall. We had no use for a third row. The Venza has tons of both leg and headroom. Very comfortable for everyone - and I am 6' 5"! The fact that it is a Toyota was a big factor in our purchase because my wife and I have owned 10 Toyotas in the past 30 years and they have all run and run with little or no problems.
Hoped for better fuel economy
2011 Toyota VenzaAnnia MS - Fort Lauderdale, FL09/11/2016
I went from a Sequoia V8 to the Venza V6. I wanted better MPG and was disappointed that I had car payments to get only 2 miles more per gallon. I had waited 10 years to get a new car and thought Toyota would have improved fuel economy on this model. I even looked atthe 2015 Venza and that only gives one more MPG becaues of smaller tires.I wanted a crossover without losing the security of a bigger car and thought this would fit.It feels like a car,not a crossover,not a mid size SUV.Just too low.Dont get me started on the blind spots that come with this car.Scarey.
Lots of Bells and Whistles but has some issues
2013 Toyota VenzaMelissa Thomas - Austin, TX03/22/2017
There is way to much road noise in this car (sounds like a window is cracked open all the time) and structurally I think it has some issues as well-- creaks when I go over road humps and the like. I also don't like how many leaves get stuck in the cracks between the car and the moon/sun roofs and in the back around the lift gate.
