Learn about the Toyota Venza

Summary

The Toyota Venza has a history of five-star ratings from the NHTSA for passenger safety. This mid-size crossover SUV is not only safe and reliable, but also very fuel efficient. The Venza’s fuel consumption is roughly 8.5 km/L for city driving and 11 km/L on highways, making it well suited to commuting and short trips. As a bonus, you also get the added utility of towing capacity. Although these vehicles are no longer in production, their discontinuation in 2017 in Canada means the last models are still recent enough that they can compete with modern-day equivalents.
