Pros & Cons

The 2022 Toyota Venza’s drivetrain performance has some mixed reviews. It’s a hybrid engine, so you’ll get a 2.5-liter four-cylinder gas engine and three motors that run on electricity. That means you should expect a total of 219 horsepower.

While some reviewers thought the Venza drove smoothly and was quieter than the R4V4, others weren’t too impressed. They found it took too long to accelerate, with a 7.6-second gap between zero to 60 miles per hour.

Interior & Comfort

Inside the SUV are five seats. A large console holds your drinks, phones, and more. Each trim level has a power-adjusted driver’s seat, which also extends to the front passenger’s seat in the Limited model.

That said, some reviewers thought the cabin’s interior felt a bit tight for an SUV. You can fit up to 28.8 cubic feet of luggage in the back of the Toyota Venza. This isn’t as roomy as competing models in the hybrid SUV class. However, it gets the job done if you have a small family.


This vehicle comes equipped with several driver-assistance features, including automated emergency braking. The emergency braking system also detects pedestrians that may walk or jump into the SUV’s path. Rounding out the safety features are lane detection and adaptive cruise control for long highway drives.

Technology & Infotainment

On the dashboard, you’ll find an eight-inch touchscreen that controls music and more. All trim levels offer connections to Amazon Alexa, Android Auto, SiriusXM, and Apple CarPlay.


The majority of drivers give the 2022 Toyota Venza high marks, with an average overall rating of 4.8 out of 5. Quality, styling, and reliability score a 4.9, while reviewers rate the car’s overall value at a 4.8. Rounding out the ratings at 4.7 each are the categories of performance and comfort.
