Take a Look at The New Toyota Venza by:Baron Jones
Whichever label you would like to give it, the new Toyota Venza looks like a winner.
Think of the Venza as a station wagon and you'll probably get the point. Of course, it doesn't look precisely like any station lorry we have seen before. Showcased at Detroit's North American International automobile show in January, Venza drew lots of attention. Among vehicles now available, it reminds us the majority of the Ford Edge crossover.
There's a lot of the Lexus RX350 in this Toyota, too, though the Venza is pressed down closer to the ground, and sleeker. Its front end is taller, but definitely molded in the theme of Toyota's current Camry sedan. The Venza's rear glass has a pleasant, long rake, and its taillights wrap around the rear fenders onto the hatch. Its standard wheels measure 19 inches in diameter, while 20-inch spoked alloys are optional. In sum, the Venza is an example of the more hunky, engaging automobiles Toyota has launched in a little time.
A look at its dimensions brings the crossover label into perspective. At 109.3 inches and 189 inches, respectively, the Venza's wheelbase and overall length match both http://www.fulltiltautomotive.com/Bell_Road_Toyota's Camry sedan and Highlander sport-utility inside fragments of an in... Put simply, the Venza's footprint on the pavement matches both Camry and Highlander closely. Yet with an overall height of 63.4 inches, the Venza slots right in the middle of the Camry and Highlander. It's ride height falls somewhere in the middle, too.
The 2009 Venza seats five, like the Camry, instead of 7 like the Highlander. Its rocker height, or the lip around the bottom of its passenger doors, is low, making it easy to lift feet within, yet the hip point for seated occupants is higher than the everyday sedan's. The mixture should deliver a mix many buyers seek : easy ingress and egress, with a higher seating position for an enhanced view around tall cars on the road.
The 2009 Venza should reach showrooms with the traditional model year changeover in early fall 2008. It will be built at Toyota's assembly plant in Georgetown, Kentucky.
