Venza acts as much like a wagon as it does a crossover. Bankrate decked it out in its XLE model here because of a few extras like a power liftgate, backup camera and push-button start that the base model doesn't have. Toyota's Entune multimedia interface is standard, too.

Comfortable and offering gobs of room, the five-passenger cabin has leather-trimmed seating with heated front seats while the second-row 60-40 split rear seat folds flat with the cargo floor. Dual-zone automatic climate control and seven air bags are standard in every Venza. A 6-inch touchscreen incorporates the controls for the six-speaker audio system with HD radio, iPod integration and satellite radio capability.

A 181-horsepower 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine delivers power to the wheels through a six-speed, driver-shiftable automatic transmission. Venza's wagon-like dimensions means a low center of gravity and improved handling.
