The 2013 Toyota Venza has been released for the new model year with new standard features, a revised exterior, and several updated option packages.
It is available with a 181-horsepower, 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine or a 268-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 engine. The V-6 engine also has an optional all-wheel-drive upgrade.
The 2013 Toyota Venza's interior is filled with top-of-the-line technology, including the Entune multimedia system. It integrates the driver's smart phone with the 2013 Toyota Venza's navigation, entertainment, and informational services.
It is available in three trim levels: LE, XLE, and Limited. The base model LE includes a blind-spot mirror, dual-zone automatic climate controls with second-row seat vents, a LCD multi-informational display, and Bluetooth connectivity. The 2013 Toyota Venza XLE adds Entune, leather-trimmed and heated front seats, a backup camera, and pushbutton start. The top-of-the-line Limited trim enlarges the infotainment display and upgrades the navigational system.
The previous front end has been replaced with a cleaner grille showing off a more traditional pattern. The fog lamps are still set low in the fascia, but are restyled for the 2013 model year to be surrounded by chrome. The wheels also get an upgrade – a new set of 19-inch rims. The upgraded V-6 equipped model boasts this to 20-inch, five spoke alloy wheels. Attitude Black, Cypress Pearl, and Cosmic Gray Mica are all new exterior colors for this model year.
This five passenger hatchback combines the comfort of a sedan with the flexibility and cargo capacity of a SUV. The resulting 2013 Toyota Venza is a stylish alternative to boring drives.
