Cars.com reviewers observe that the standard safety features on the Venza Toyota include "stability control, active front head restraints, seat-mounted side-impact airbags for front passengers, [and] side curtain airbags for both rows of seats." The Detroit News is confident enough to give the 2009 Toyota Venza an "excellent" rating in the safety category, citing the Venza Toyota's "electronic stability control, full complement of air bags and other safety features." Cars.com adds that a "backup camera" is available "as part of a $570 security package," which further enhances safety by improving driver visibility.
Visibility on the Venza Toyota doesn't need a whole lot of improving, at least not according to most reviewers. ConsumerGuide reveals that "fore and aft visibility are good, though the view to the rear corners is tricky because of very thick roof pillars." Other reviewers are similarly quick to heap praise on the driver visibility from within the 2009 Toyota Venza.
