toyota venza review
Up front, the Venza's grille is a bolder, cleaner analysis of its original chrome plan. The reduced inlet trades egg-crate mesh for a much more typical crosshatch pattern and also is now ringed in chrome. The haze lights stay set into the lower fascia, now feature restyled chrome borders.
3 brand-new shades-- Mindset Black, Cypress Pearl, and Cosmic Gray Mica-- sign up with the Venza's choices for 2013, with a collection of freshly made 19-inch wheels completing the exterior updates. The V-6 geared up model has 20-inch, five-spoke alloys as standard.
The large news in Venza modern technology for 2013 is the arrival of the Entune multimedia system. Targeted at integrating smart phones and the cars and truck's navigation, home entertainment, and details services, Entune supports a host of mobile applications, consisting of Bing, movietickets.com, Pandora, and also iHeartRadio.
Toyota asserts the purchasing process has actually been simplified and also value enhanced for 2013 with the addition of various conventional functions to all 3 trim levels: LE, XLE, and also Limited. The Venza LE consists of a blind-spot mirror as well as external mirror turn-signals with puddle lights. A dual-zone automated climate control system with second-row-seat vents, a 3.5-inch LCD multi-information display screen, a 6.1-inch touch-screen infotainment user interface, an accessory audio jack, a USB port, a six-speaker stereo, as well as Bluetooth connection round out the LE's functions.
The XLE includes nav as well as Entune, leather-trimmed and warmed pole positions, pushbutton beginning, a power liftgate, a backup electronic camera, and also an anti-theft system. The Minimal enlarges the 6.1-inch infomercial display screen to a full 7 inches as well as includes an updated nav system, a panoramic glass roofing system, and also CONCEALED headlamps.
LE and XLE designs are readily available with either of both engine options: a 181-hp, 2.7 liter four-cylinder or a 268-hp, 3.5-liter V-6 with either front- or all-wheel drive. The Limited is powered entirely by the V-6 engine in either front- or all-wheel-drive configurations.
Calling the 2013 Venza "new" would certainly be a stretch, and also Toyota concurs: It refers to the adjustments as "considerable updates," a declaration with which we could concur in good conscience.
