SAFETY | 7 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

'Good,' frontal, side, rear impact; 'good,' roof strength; Top Safety Pick
IIHS

Five stars Overall; four stars frontal impact, five stars side
NHTSA




While the Venza has been refreshed somewhat for 2013, it appears that the vehicle is largely carried over structurally, so it's no surprise that this model will achieve ratings comparable to those of the 2012 model.

There's a good and a bad in that. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has given this crossover 'good' ratings for all its tests, including a roof-strength test, and it's an IIHS Top Safety Pick. And after the 2013 model was retested it's earned an excellent five-star overall score.

Compared to rival crossovers, the 2013 Toyota Venza maintains a strong list of safety features, though. Seven standard airbags, electronic stability control, and anti-lock brakes are all standard. But 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.

Conclusion

The Venza has earned a mix of good and bad crash-test ratings, and rearward visibility can be an Achilles' heel.

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.
