When the updated-for- 2013 Toyota Venza goes on sale next week, it'll start at $28,510 (including an $810 destination fee).
The midsize wagon gets exterior styling tweaks and more standard and available features for the new model year. Trim levels LE, XLE and Limited return for model-year 2013. Powertrains also carry over: LE and XLE versions use either a standard 182-horsepower, 2.7-liter four-cylinder or optional 268-hp, 3.5-liter V-6. The V-6 is again standard on the top-line Venza Limited model.
Newly standard across the board are a blind spot mirror, eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat with power lumbar, integrated turn signals in side mirrors, a tilt/telescoping steering wheel with integrated audio controls, and three 12-volt power outlets. Toyota’s Entune multimedia system is standard on Limited models and newly optional on LE and XLE versions. It provides access to mobile internet applications such as Bing, iheartradio, OpenTable and Pandora.
Compared to 2012 versions, prices are up an average of 2.9% across all trim levels. All-wheel-drive four-cylinder XLE models, now priced at $33,620, saw the biggest price increase for model-year 2013 at 5.1% more than last year's version.
