2012 Toyota Venza

  • Crossover's exterior gets a fresh look
  • Update also includes more standard features
  • New version fully revealed at New York Auto Show in April

Toyota will reveal an updated 2013 Venza at next month's New York International Auto Show. The automaker recently released a few details about the new version of its midsize crossover along with teaser photos of a revised headlight, which features a sharper design than today's model.

According to Toyota, the biggest changes to the Camry-based Venza will come on the outside. The updated Venza will get a new grille, revised fog lamps, redesigned 19-inch wheels and three new exterior colors. And those new headlights teased by Toyota will include available LED daytime running lights.

Toyota is also adding more standard equipment to all three of the 2013 Venza's trim levels. In the base-level Venza LE, blind spot mirrors will provide drivers with a wider field of vision, while "puddle lamps" will illuminate the ground when passengers are entering or exiting the vehicle. This model will also feature integrated turn signals on the mirrors. The Venza XLE will add a memory function for the driver's seat, a navigation system and Toyota's Entune multimedia infotainment system. The upscale Venza Limited gains an upgraded navigation system, JBL premium audio system and the new LED daytime running lights as standard equipment.


Originally released for 2009, the Venza received several trim and equipment changes for the 2012 model year to help spur sales. The 2013 Venza's facelift and new features are intended to keep things moving until a fully redesigned model debuts sometime in the next few years.

A 182-horsepower 2.7-liter 4-cylinder engine is standard on Venza LE and XLE models; a 268-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 is optional on those trim levels and standard on the upscale Venza Limited. It's likely that the 2013 Venza will receive a slight price bump over the current model's price, which starts around $28,000 including destination fees.

We'll be on hand when the 2013 Venza launches in New York to provide photos and more details about the revisions.

What it means to you: The Toyota Venza crossover will offer more bang for the buck by adding standard features for 2013.
