2013 Toyota Venza Crossover has an announced price already and will be seen at dealerships this week. The new Toyota crossover will offer its customers more luxury and spaciousness in terms of interior and added styling to all its features. Furthermore it will add value with the help of several new standard convenience features and updated option packages.

What is new here is that Venza comes with a new more aerodynamic shape. The latter has been achieved through the modified upper and lower grille, fog lamps and rear taillights. Of course, no update in body style can go without an update in the wheels. This Toyota crossover runs on new 19-inch wheel design.

In addition, the exterior colors which now are being offered are complemented by three new ones, namely: Attitude Black, Cypress Pearl, and Cosmic Gray Mica. Moreover, there are also included three interior color choices: Ivory, Light Gray, and Black. The latter is absolutely new for the model range. Each color is offered in fabric on LE and leather on XLE and Limited.

The trim levels in which the 2013 Venza is being offered are: LE, XLE and Limited grades. In particular, the LE and XLE models are available with all powertrain combinations: four-cylinder, V6, front-wheel drive (FWD) or all-wheel drive (AWD). Both engines are mated to a six-speed sequential-shift electronically controlled automatic transmission with intelligence (ECT-i).

In contrast the Venza Limited is powered by the V6 engine only, in front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive configurations. Here as well the engine goes with the six-speed sequential-shift electronically controlled automatic transmission with intelligence (ECT-i).

Furthermore, the additional features that the new model will include will delight any customer. Some of them for instance are the standard blind-spot mirror and outer mirror turn signals with puddle lamps, which will go as a standard on all trim levels.

Other key standard features are: dual-zone automatic climate control with air filter and second-row-seat vents; eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat with power lumbar; 3.5-inch LCD multi-information display; a tilt/telescopic adjustable wheel with integrated audio controls; an overhead console with map lights; rear-seat adjustable personal reading lamps and three 12-volt power outlets.

2013 Venza will now come equipped with unique feature – the new Toyota Entune multimedia system. Entune gives power to the mobile smartphone to provide a richer in-vehicle experience with fully integrated access to navigation, entertainment and information services.

Additionally, the audio systems that go along with the Entune include conversational voice recognition system which will help the driver to stay focused by eliminating the need to memorize thousands of voice commands.

The base price for the 2013 Toyota Venza LE will start from $27 700 for the front-wheel-drive (FWD) four-cylinder engine. The detailed pricing of the other trim levels are listed below.
