2022 Toyota Venza vs. Its Competition

2022 Toyota Venza
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The Toyota Venza competes against a strong group of great-selling compact crossovers, the Toyota RAV4 among them.

The RAV4 shares the Venza’s structure, but is more macho, better controlled, and more off-road focused.

The Subaru Forester is an excellent value with more off-road capability.

The Chevrolet Blazer shares some of the Venza’s design focus, though it’s sportier.

The Honda CR-V and Ford Escape have hybrid powertrains as well, but they don’t come off as upscale as the Venza.
