Used Car: 2010 Toyota Venza Review
Though the 2010 Toyota Venza isn’t particularly engaging to drive, its stylish looks, excellent fuel economy and good safety and reliability scores make it a great choice among used midsize SUVs.
The 2010 Toyota Venza is ranked:
When it was new, reviewers said the five-seat 2010 Toyota Venza definitely won’t offer the passenger capacity, or towing and off-roading abilities of some competing 2010 midsize SUVs. However, if you’re in the market for a sleek-looking used SUV with lots of cargo space and an attractive interior, the Venza is an excellent choice. Because it’s available with a four-cylinder engine as well as a V6, shoppers can choose between excellent fuel economy and plenty of power, and the Venza also comes standard with more features than many competitors. Considering that the Venza also gets great reliability and safety scores, if you’re looking for a five-seat crossover, the 2010 Toyota Venza should definitely be on your shopping list.
The Toyota Venza comes standard with a 182-horsepower four-cylinder engine, though a 268-horsepower V6 is available. Both engines are available with front- or all-wheel drive. The 2010 Venza was only offered in one well-equipped trim level, which includes dual-zone automatic climate control, an eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with lumbar support, Bluetooth and a six-speaker audio system with USB port and satellite radio.
Other Cars to Consider
The 2010 Ford Edge doesn’t come with nearly as many standard features, but its safety and reliability scores are on par with the Venza’s, and reviewers said the Edge is a bit sportier. While the Edge gets the nod for being more fun to drive, the Venza does offer better fuel economy, regardless of which model you choose.
The 2010 Nissan Murano is another SUV that’s sportier than the Venza and comes with a high-quality interior. While the Murano is the clear frontrunner if you’re looking for an SUV that’s fun to drive, the Venza has a better reliability score and comes with more standard features.
