The Venza needs to be put into perspective: It’s a lot greener than most SUVs, but a typical mid-size sedan is a bit more fuel-efficient.

Expert Quotes:

21 mpg city, 27 highway (4-cyl, front-wheel drive); 20/25 (V-6, FWD); 19/26 (V-6 AWD); 18/25 (V-6 AWD)

If you're concerned about making a green choice in your next vehicle, you could certainly do a lot worse than the 2011 Toyota Venza. Four-cylinder Venzas get up to 21 mpg city, 27 highway. But the V-6 with front-wheel drive gets 19/26 mpg. Shoppers should beware that all-wheel drive adds weight you'll be lugging around all the time, so it can subtract 1 or 2 mpg to any driving, for the life of the vehicle.

But the difference in fuel economy between the two engines is likely quite small, especially if you live in hilly terrain that might tax the four-cylinder engine, or if you do a lot of highway driving. In fact, with all-wheel drive both engines get 25 mpg highway.

Conclusion

The Venza needs to be put into perspective: It’s a lot greener than most SUVs, but a typical mid-size sedan is a bit more fuel-efficient.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
