The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
Either as an alternative to a mid-size sedan or a taller crossover SUV, the 2010 Toyota Venza makes a lot of sense; it's just hard to muster much excitement. The 2009 Nissan Murano combines good handling and a recognizable style with a much more sophisticated interior.
