Review: 2009 Toyota Venza
2009 Toyota Venza - Toyota Crossover SUV Review - Automobile Magazine
The Family Truckster strikes back. If it’s what’s on the inside that counts, though, the Venza is a knockout.

The 2009 Toyota Venza has some lovely styling elements (like the character line that forms its broad rear shoulders) and some not-so-lovely elements (like the entire front end). Unfortunately, it has way too many of all of them. In fact, the last blunt-nosed, overstyled station wagon to use this many clichd styling cues was the Family Truckster – the fictional monstrosity purchased by that lovable idiot Clark Griswold in the 1983 comedy National Lampoon’s Vacation.
