2014 Toyota Venza
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The Venza is a solid value in base form, but the plushest V-6 versions can overlap the Lexus RX 350 in price--and the Lexus comes with a superior service experience.

Quick Specs
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.
An exceptionally comfortable interior, great connectivity, and a 30-mpg turbo model succeed in elevating the 2014 Ford Edge above the crossover clutter.
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.
The 2014 Nissan Murano is stylish and refined, but lacks some of the space and efficiency found in competitors.
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.
