If back-seat passengers are important to you, we recommend the two-row, two-piece sunroof

Navigation system, keyless access and engine start...and heated front seats are among the options
Venza's high starting price should be offset somewhat by the car's long list of standard features
The 2010 Toyota Venza doesn't come in a wide range of trims, unlike Toyota's other vehicles, but the base Venza is loaded with features.
Cars.com reviewers note that the 2009 Toyota Venza offers "cruise control, a six-CD changer, 19- or 20-inch wheels, power windows...fog lamps, dual-zone climate control," and "a tilt/telescoping steering wheel with stereo controls."
In addition to its long list of standard features, reviews read by TheCarConnection.com show that the Venza Toyota offers some appealing options. Car and Driver reports that "of the two optional 13-speaker JBL sound systems, the top-shelf version (bundled with the navigation package) is Bluetooth-equipped, allowing for music streaming from compatible devices." For 2010, all Venza models get a USB interface good for interfacing with an iPod or other MP3 player, plus Bluetooth hands-free calling functions.
According to the Detroit News, "all of the options are served up on an a la carte menu of smart choices and well-bundled features," which "lets you buy the back-up camera without soaking you for the navigation system" or "get the panoramic sunroof and nothing else if that's the way you roll." Cars.com adds that "heated seats and mirrors" and "a power liftgate" are both available as part of options packages, as is "the $1,050 panoramic sunroof," though that feature "can't be combined with a rear DVD entertainment system, which goes for $1,680." The Detroit News also loves that the new Toyota Venza offers "lots of appealing features," most notably "Bluetooth connections for stereo and phone."
With the addition of a USB input on all models for 2010, the Toyota Versa is packed with desirable features.
