The 2013 Toyota Venza comes very well equipped in its more affordable trims, with the lower-priced versions offering the strongest value compared to other crossovers. On the other hand, while upper Limited trims add high-end audio, navigation, leather seats, and back-seat video entertainment, the loaded versions of the Venza can inch close to Lexus RX 350 territory.

The Venza remains offered in three distinct trim levels: LE, XLE, and Limited. And a much-improved set of standard features at each level--plus new connectivity and infotainment features--is really the big news for 2013, and it sweetens the Venza's value. LE models now get new Display Audio systems (comparable to those that made their debut in the 2013 Camry), plus a blind-spot side mirrors, puddle lamps, and outer turn signals. Venza XLE models get a memory power driver's seat, reverse-tilt outside mirrors, and navigation—in addition to Entune multi-media features. And at the top of the line, all Limited models now have LED daytime running lights plus premium 13-speaker JBL sound and an upgraded navigation system.

A Premium Package is available for the XLE, adding (for those who want the four-cylinder engine) many of the upgrades offered in the V-6-only Limited model.

The Entune system that's offered in most of the lineup allows smartphone connectivity for infotainment as well as calling features--with mobile apps for Bing, OpenTable, and movietickets.com among those on offer, along with Pandora music streaming.

Conclusion

Toyota has packed more connectivity and infotainment value into the Venza for 2013.

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.
