Check out the new Toyota Venza at Bell Road Toyota this fall

Whichever label you want to give it, the new Toyota Venza looks like a winner.

Assume of the Venza as a station wagon and you’ll almost certainly get the point. Of course, it doesn’t appear specifically like any station wagon we’ve noticed before. Unveiled at Detroit’s North American International Auto show in January, Venza drew lots of attention. Among automobiles at present available, it reminds us most of the Ford Edge crossover.

There is a lot of the Lexus RX350 in this Toyota, as well, even though the Venza is pressed down closer to the ground, and sleeker. Its front finish is taller, but absolutely molded in the theme of Toyota’s current Camry sedan. The Venza’s rear glass has a good, extended rake, and its taillights wrap about the rear fenders onto the hatch. Its standard wheels measure 19 inches in diameter, even though 20-inch spoked alloys are optional. In sum, the Venza is a single of the far more handsome, interesting autos Toyota has launched in some time.

A appear at its dimensions brings the crossover label into point of view. At 109.three inches and 189 inches, respectively, the Venza’s wheelbase and overall length match both Bell Road Toyota’s Camry sedan and Highlander sport-utility within fractions of an inch. In other words, the Venza’s footprint on the pavement matches both Camry and Highlander closely. However with an overall height of 63.4 inches, the Venza slots right in the middle of the Camry and Highlander. It really is ride height falls somewhere in the middle, too.

The 2009 Venza seats five, like the Camry, rather than seven like the Highlander. Its rocker height, or the lip around the bottom of its passenger doors, is low, creating it simple to lift feet inside, but the hip point for seated occupants is higher than the standard sedan’s. The mixture ought to deliver a mix several buyers seek: simple ingress and egress, with a greater seating position for a greater view around tall automobiles on the road.

The 2009 Venza should reach showrooms with the classic model year changeover in early fall 2008. It will be built at Toyota’s assembly plant in Georgetown, Kentucky.
