The Venza’s key strength was its ability to transport up to five people and carry more than twice the amount of cargo than the Camry. As well, the Venza’s taller body and greater ride height made for easier entry and exit. Ride comfort and steering precision/handling were also strong points. Both the four- and six-cylinder engines could be specified with all-wheel-drive, which made the wagon an ideal all-weather workhorse.
