Toyota Venza, one of Toyota’s premier cars, gets a makeover and it looks tastier than ever. Venza is sporting a low roofline, crisp character lines, short overhangs and forward A- pillar while having a very sleek aerodynamic design. Venza was last updated 2 years back, in 2013, features distinctive grille at a bold front end, brushstroke lines making their way all the way from the front grille to D-pillar, fog lamps and headlines that gives the car a very sporty, distinct and elegant sporty look. Complimented with some other crazy features such as a very angular rear hatch, a spoiler, the perfectly designed hatch door interconnecting with the wide wraparound taillights, the car defines the meaning of Elegance with a hint of style. And the smooth appearance is further enhanced by gaps between tires and the body to give it a refreshing head. This edgy look of the car is the perfect proof of Toyota’s ‘attention to the detail’ characteristic.
The upgraded audio system- Entune is more convenient and efficient than ever and all the models are getting a standard backup camera owing to the latest upgradation.

Further contributing to the classiness of the vehicle is the EPS (electric power steering) with its ideally designed and comfortable steering efforts.
