    I own the 2012 Outback and compared it with the Venza but the Toyota felt poorly built.While the Outback is rock solid and just melts pot holes.I feel it's a tremendous value but it is not so luxurious as other models.I have the Premium and it does not have a hatch latch from the drivers seat or a lot of thing's I believe should standard.The mpg has been around 28 overall which was better the expected for the 4cylinder with 4wd .Overall I am happy with my purchase.
