Kelsey Mays Kelsey Mays 8.0 out of 10 2011 Toyota Venza Wagon

The Venza possesses the expressive design and creative interior that so many Toyotas lack, but it’s still quiet, utilitarian and fuel-efficient. Those are familiar Toyota strengths, and if you can get past the driving flaws, there might be ample reason to consider it.

Edward A. Sanchez Edward A. Sanchez Score Pending 2011 Toyota Venza Wagon

The Venza is a stylish alternative to the conventional midsize SUV, and would likely fit the needs of small families looking for day-to-day transport. With some fine-tuning to the interior trim, it could be a great crossover instead of a good one.

The 2011 Venza has tall doors, ease of entry and a spacious cargo area — all things that make family life easier. While it’s not going to wow anyone with its zero to 60 mph stats, the Venza is comfortable enough to drive all day.

With over three times the cargo room of a Camry, better gas mileage than a Highlander (not to mention a 4Runner), design panache, and available all-wheel drive, the Toyota Venza might just be the answer to a question I didn’t know I was asking all along.
