2011 Toyota Venza Price, Review & Picture – New Car Reviews, The 2011 Toyota Venza retains the same equipment as it had in 2010. As it was, though, the Venza crossover didn’t receive too many new bits of equipment last year, either — iPod and USB ports were made standard, as was Bluetooth connectivity. The Venza has a higher ride height for better visibility, and fuel economy as good as 21 mpg city/29 mpg highway.
The Toyota Venza for 2009 entered the market as a new model and it was, at once, controversial. Formerly designed with the aim of unifying practicality and functional characteristics, the Venza has really always been a vehicle that invoked controversy. In 2009, the carmaker marketed the vehicle as one that melds style and comfort with the versatility of an SUV. Still, it’s a crossover when one considers its abilities, size, and ground clearance.
The 2011 Toyota Venza sports a 3.5 Liter V-6 engine, a Toyota based offering, delivering 268 hp/246 ft-lbs of torque. It is also offered with a 2.7 Liter Inline Four with 182 horsepower and 246 ft-lbs of torque. The engine is coupled to a six speed automatic tranny. It comes with front wheel drive or all wheel drive as well.
The Venza sits higher than the Camry, another Toyota offering, and it can tow 3500 pounds. This vehicle fuses great power, comfort, and performance, but it doesn’t have any specific trims. This is not a bad thing however, because the car buyer can customize the Venza instead.
The Toyota Venza has a different grille and a crossover-type cargo area, yet it’s clear that this vehicle shares its DNA (and 109.3-in wheelbase) with the Camry sedan. The Venza features 19-inch wheels as standard rolling stock, with 20-inch wheels optional. The Venza’s five-passenger cabin comes with dual-zone climate control, power windows and door locks, and six-speaker audio. Panoramic glass roof, leather power seats, seat heaters, navigation, and rear-seat DVD entertainment are optional for the Venza.
With the V-6, there is plenty of power for the weight of this vehicle. It brought the Venza to 60 mph in 6.5 seconds, and through the quarter mile in 15 seconds flat at 93.7 mph. The Venza’s steering is a little numb, the 20-inch wheels do make the ride rougher (although still pleasant), and the suspension wallows when pushed.
Standard airbags: driver and front passenger, driver and front passenger side, two-row seat side curtain, and driver knee. Also standard for the Toyota Venza are enhanced stability control, traction control, and ABS with electronic brake-force distribution and brake assist.
