If you want a Crossover that is as compact and stylish as a sedan, buy a new 2012 Toyota Venza today. It is as compact and as stylish but it performs and saves as a crossover should.
Under the Venza’s hood is either a 2.7-Liter 4-Cylinder Double Overhead Cam (DOHC) 16-Valve with Dual Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i) engine with 182 hp @ 5800 rpm, or a 3.5-Liter V6 DOHC 24-Valve with Dual VVT-I that performs 268 hp @ 6200 rpm. And between the two, the 2.7L 4-Cylinder saves the most, with 21 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway.
The Venza’s exterior features a very compact look but still has an appealing approach. Because it’s a Crossover, it can tow up to 3500 lbs of mass (with the tow prep package).To enhance these looks, Toyota included either 19-inch 10-spoke alloy wheels or 20-inch 5-spoke allow wheels, chrome accents such as the door handles and the exhaust, and projector-beam high intensity discharge headlamps.
For the interior, Toyota features sleek, leather-trimmed heated front seats, one touch fold-flat rear seats, and a telescopic steering wheel. For entertainment, a Voice-activated touch-screen DVD navigation system with integrated backup camera display and JBL Synthesis® AM/FM 4-disc CD changer with MP3/WMA playback capability backed up with 13 speakers. It’s also packed with SiriusXM Satellite Radio capability with NavTraffic™ (includes three-month trial subscription to XM Select Package and NavTraffic™), USB port with iPod® connectivity, auto sound leveling, hands-free phone capability and music streaming via Bluetooth® wireless technology.
Turn heads with your 2012 Toyota Venza in one of these colors – Barcelona red metallic, sunset bronze mica, golden umber mica, tropical sea metallic, classic silver metallic, magnetic gray metallic, black, aloe green metallic, or with extra cost, blizzard pearl.
