The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Nissan Murano combines good handling and a recognizable style with a much more sophisticated interior. Either as an alternative to a mid-size sedan or a taller crossover SUV, the 2010 Toyota Venza makes a lot of sense; it's just hard to muster much excitement.
