The 2012 Venza revamps their trim lineup pretty extensively. This year, there are LE, XLE and Limited trims as well as two powertrains and front wheel and all-wheel drive options as well. The base level Venza's equipment and price point stay about the same, however.
SUV styling with passenger-car comfort; choice of engines and available all-wheel drive; spacious interior
With three trim levels for 2012, the Venza offers a wide range of possibilities. The Venza successfully combines the comfort and refinement of the Camry with the cargo-carrying capacity of a wagon. The all-wheel drive option means the Venza is sure-footed in any situation. The base engine earns a 21 mpg city and 27 mpg highway rating from the EPA, while even the all-wheel drive with a V6 gets 18 mpg city/25 mpg highway.
