SAFETY | 7 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

‘Good,’ frontal offset; ‘good,’ side impact; ‘good,’ rear impact; ‘good,’ roof strength; Top Safety Pick
IIHS

Four stars overall, three stars frontal, five stars side
NHTSA




The 2011 Toyota Venza is either very safe, or merely a bit above average, depending on which safety agency you put more faith into. In Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) testing, the Venza has earned top 'good' ratings in every category, including the new roof strength test—and it's been given the Top Safety Pick designation for 2011. But in now-tougher federal safety tests, the Venza only performed to a three-star standard in frontal protection, with five-star results in side impact and a four-star overall score.

With seven standard airbags, electronic stability control, and anti-lock brakes are all on the standard-features list, and visibility isn't the issue that it is in some other crossover vehicles, thanks to the rather high driving position, the Venza does have a complete safety package.

One thing you might want to get in the Venza is the backup camera; thick roof pillars make visibility a bit worse than in sedans and boxier SUVs, though next to many rival models it's not bad.

Conclusion

The 2011 Toyota Venza has respectable safety—though not across-the-board impressive—safety credentials.

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.
