2013 Toyota Venza Safety

7.0
On Safety

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.

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