The Toyota Venza might be classified as a \"sport wagon.\" It's a 5-passenger family wagon that rides high, and its distinctive body styling provides extra roominess in a vehicle that's slightly smaller than its competitors.

The 2011 Toyota Venza offers two trim levels: one with a 4-cylinder engine and one with a V-6. Accompanying the smaller engine are 19-inch alloy wheels; vehicles with the larger engine features 20-inch wheels. Standard features on both include dual-zone automatic climate control, cruise control, automatic headlights, some power accessories, trip computer, and a 6-speaker sound system that now features satellite radio, a USB port, and iPod connectivity. Various option packages and stand-alone enhancements are available. These can include leather upholstery, keyless entry and ignition, heated front seats and mirrors, more power accessories, navigation system, premium surround-sound system, and a rear-seat entertainment system. Cargo space behind the rear seats of the Venza amounts to 34.4 cubic feet, according to Toyota. With the rear seats folded, total cargo space is 70 cubic feet.

The entry-level power plant for the 2011 Toyota Venza is a 182-horsepower, 2.7-liter 4-cylinder engine, mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission that features sequential shift control. That combination delivers 21 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway with front-wheel drive (FWD), 20/28 with all-wheel drive (AWD), according to the EPA. The upper-trim 268-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 engine delivers 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway with FWD, and 18/25 with AWD.

Standard safety features on the 2011 Toyota Venza include 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, stability control, traction control, active front head restraints, front seat belt pre-tensioners, front side air bags, and side curtain air bags. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave the Venza highest-possible \"Good\" ratings in frontal-offset and side-impact crash tests.

Starting MSRP for the 2011 Toyota Venza is just over $27,000.
