Simply put, the Toyota Venza is for older drivers and parents who want easy entry and exit, low liftover heights, and minimum fuss overall, but with excellent seating comfort.
The Subaru Tribeca comes with standard all-wheel drive, but it's a little dated, especially inside.
Another model worth considering is the Honda Accord Crosstour; its roofline and seating arrangement don't afford quite as much versatility as the Venza, though.
The Ford Edge has recently been redesigned, with a fresher look inside and out, as well as a more powerful V-6, and its interior tech is now more advanced with the available MyFord Touch system.
