Selection is a key part of a successful vehicle lineup, and the Toyota Venza lineup is packed full of it.
The Japanese automaker’s so-called ‘crossover sedan’ is commonly sought out by shoppers looking to downsize from a minivan or SUV, as well as those looking for an upscale sedan experience with extra flexibility and versatility. The five-door hatchback model is part station wagon, part SUV and part family sedan, and it has been a runaway success since going on sale a few years ago.
“The Toyota Venza defies convention – delivering the drivability and ride comfort of a premium sedan plus the SUV-like versatility that modern life demands,” said Warren Orton, Director at Toyota Canada, Inc. “With a choice of four-cylinder or V6 power, plus front or all-wheel-drive and a selection of available options packages, there’s a Venza for every Canadian seeking an innovative automotive experience. The Venza offers bold and expressive styling, excellent engine performance and efficiency, and a refined and comfortable interior.”
And aside from the versatility, quality and reliability built into each and every Canadian-built Venza, it’s also the great variety of options and models that has has been helping move the model steadily off of dealer lots and into driveways across the country. Toyota has strived to create a model range that offers something for virtually any shopper, regardless of need or budget.
As a result, there is a Venza perfect for you and your family waiting for a test-drive at your local Toyota dealership.
From $29,425, the Venza packs a 2.7 litre four-cylinder engine with 182 horsepower, automatic transmission and 19-inch wheels. Far from a ‘basic’ base model, it includes dual-zone automatic climate control, steering-wheel audio controls, premium gauges and Bluetooth connectivity as standard.
A Premium Package can be added that offers leather seating, a multi-information display, backup camera, panoramic sunroof, power tailgate and plenty more.
Need year-round traction and confidence? The Venza AWD is for you. From $30,875 with the four-cylinder engine, the Venza AWD dials up traction and peace of mind on any road. The fully-automatic AWD system operates with no driver involvement and minimal effects on fuel economy.
The Venza AWD can be fitted with the Premium Package, as well as a Touring Package that furthers its equipment list with Smart Key system, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, self-leveling xenon headlamps, heated seats and more. And for the ultimate in long-distance comfort for avid travelers, the Navigation and JBL package adds a navigation system with voice command, enhanced backup camera, CD-changer and JBL Synthesis audio system with 13 speakers.
Performance buffs listen up: the Venza V6 offers up an extra dose of performance and exhilaration with Toyota’s 3.5 litre V6 under the hood. Offering over 265 horsepower and available with front or All Wheel Drive (AWD), it’s priced from $30,915. Don’t miss the dual exhaust and sporty 20-inch alloy wheels for a touch of added visual flare. Toyota’s potent 3.5 litre V6 is noted for robust performance, longevity and efficiency.
