How badly do you want a shiny Lexus logo on your grille? If you can do without the bling, you have to hear about the 2015 Toyota Venza crossover.

The Venza is basically a Lexus RX 350 by another name. And if you ask us, the Toyota's better-looking. Under the skin, the RX and the Venza have much in common, so there's plenty of quality engineering on tap. If you like everything about luxury crossovers except the high price tag, this Toyota's a compelling candidate. Here are five reasons why the smart money's on the Venza.

World-Class Engine

The Venza's 3.5-liter V6 is the same one you get in the Lexus RX, and it's one of the best. It'll do 0-60 in about 7 seconds flat, and when you pull out to pass, you're off to the races. Toyota also offers a 4-cylinder engine in the Venza, but why bother? The V6 matches the four's fuel economy with 26 miles per gallon on the highway, and as far as performance on the road, it's just no contest.

Uptown Styling

Although the Venza doesn't wear a Lexus badge, there's no reason why it couldn't. This is one sleek crossover, with muscular flanks, wraparound taillights and standard 19-inch wheels or available 20-inchers. When you pull up to the curb, you'll turn heads like you're driving a true luxury vehicle. If you ask us, the Venza is one of the best-looking crossovers on the market.

Spacious Cabin

Some crossovers try to squeeze a third row of seats in the back, but the Venza focuses on making its two rows as pleasant as possible. The standard power driver's seat provides a wide range of adjustments, and the rear seats are adult-friendly, even for 6-footers. As an added bonus, the rear seatbacks recline, so it's easy for your passengers to catch a few Zs. The Venza may only have seating for five, but Toyota made sure that everyone's going to ride in real comfort.

Comprehensive Features

Even the base Venza LE comes loaded up, with standard features such as automatic climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror and a 6.1-in touchscreen. Step up to the XLE, and you get a power lift gate, keyless start and leather seats. Want more? The Limited boasts xenon headlights with LED accents, a panoramic sunroof and JBL audio. Once again, the Venza delivers a luxury experience at a subluxury price.

Composed Driving Character

On the road, the Venza's a cool customer. Despite those big wheels, the ride stays nice and smooth, and there's not much road noise to interrupt your flow. We like the carlike handling, too. The Venza's based on the Camry sedan, and you can feel it from the driver's seat.

Autotrader Says

Do you like the sound of a luxury crossover with Toyota pricing? If so, you have to see what the 2015 Toyota Venza's all about.
