2014 Toyota Venza Fuel Economy

Fuel Economy
Compared to most modern sedans and wagons, the 2014 Toyota Venza isn't a very fuel-efficient vehicle. Compared to many crossovers, however, the Venza is closer to the top of the available range.

Four essential variants are available, crossing the two available engines with either front- or all-wheel drive. All models use a standard six-speed automatic transmission.

The four-cylinder front-drive Venza rates 20 mpg city and 26 mpg highway for 23 mpg combined, per the EPA. Adding all-wheel drive brings those figures down just a touch to 20/26/22 mpg.

The 2014 Toyota Venza is a greener alternative to larger crossovers, but doesn't compete with smaller sedans and wagons.

Venzas fitted with the more powerful V-6 engine start at 19/26/22 mpg with front-wheel drive, while all-wheel-drive V-6 Venzas rate 18/25/21 mpg.

The penalty for the all-wheel drive system is very small, so those who live in snow-belt states should have no compunctions about opting for it. In our experience, when driving in hilly areas, the difference in gas mileage between four- and six-cylinder models essentially vanishes, but in flat-land driving, the four-cylinder is the definite choice for greener driving.
