For shoppers with back-seat room and all-weather traction top-of-mind, the Toyota Venza is a compelling luxury sedan alternative.
With dimensions that make this much like an ‘all-road’ Avalon, the Venza is able to maintain a truly hushed cabin for five.
Roominess in back is even better than the Avalon, courtesy of extra recline angle in the back seat and a higher seat base.
Overall access is far easier in a car like the Venza, which is unique in delivering an ultra-low floor and step-in height versus many other crossovers.
The huge doors make ingress much easier than even the longer new BMW X5, which still has a pronounced rear door cut-out around the back wheel.
The Venza is also pretty dashing on the road, with luxury-car width but also a low-roof style versus the Nissan Murano or even the new Lincoln MKC.
