2014 Toyota Venza vs. Its Competition

2014 Toyota Venza
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The Toyota Venza is a more compact crossover than Toyota's Highlander, and that makes it a suitable choice for parents and for older drivers that need easy exit and entry, and less fuss in general.

The Subaru Tribeca comes with standard all-wheel drive, but it's a little dated, especially inside.

The Nissan Murano and Mazda CX-9 are quite the opposite; they're both racier and have sportier tuning, but the Murano has less space, while the CX-9 still manages a very roomy interior.

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.

Quick Specs
7.6
If you don't need a rugged SUV, the 2014 Toyota Venza is a practical, even stylish alternative with some strong wagon and hatchback leanings.
8.2
An exceptionally comfortable interior, great connectivity, and a 30-mpg turbo model succeed in elevating the 2014 Ford Edge above the crossover clutter.
7.6
The 2014 Mazda CX-9 is one of the most engaging large crossovers from the driver's seat; but the CX-9 is no standout for efficiency, like the brand's newer cars.
7.8
The 2014 Nissan Murano is stylish and refined, but lacks some of the space and efficiency found in competitors.
7.6
The 2014 Subaru Tribeca is a solid choice if you're a family who needs all-weather handling, but its old design and poor fuel economy may leave you looking elsewhere.
