1. Toyota Venza 2010 model – An Interesting yet Practical Blend of a Crossover and a Wagon

Toyota Venza 2010 is one of the most sought-after models in the Nigerian market. Interestingly enough, it is confusing to determine whether the Venza is a crossover or a wagon. While some auto journalists see it as the “Camry station wagon”, others deem it a new species of SUV. There have been customers who seek more room and flexibility than the Camry sedan but find the Highlander too bulky. And there comes the Venza. Its creator, Toyota, describes it as a perfect hybrid of a stylish and comfortable passenger car and a flexible SUV.

Although other rival brands have come up with more fuel-efficient models such as the Subaru Outback, more stylish such as Ford Edge and Nissan Murano, the Toyota Venza 2010 still proves a classic by its consistent presence in the most popular car ranking rated by Nigerians. The Toyota Venza is fonded by Nigerian drivers with its confident V6 engine and fit-for-the-need technology features, including 6.1-inch touchscreen with upgraded infotainment features and a rearview camera. The larger cargo bay is achieved by foldable rear seats and passengers won’t be struggling for headroom or legroom from both seating rows. Besides, the Venza’s tall doors and low step-in height allow the most mobility-challenged shoppers feel convenient. Let's explore more about this interesting vehicle through our review of the Toyota Venza 2010 model.

From the inside, the Toyota Venza 2010 interior embodies a distinctive yet functional cabin. The dashboard receives a bold design with the shifter charmingly integrated into the center stack. The room below is generously provided for a large console bin, fat cup holders and smaller pockets to store small items. However, the materials chosen for the Venza is mediocre with a mix of smooth and textured plastics and false wood details.

A little source of frustration is the small virtual buttons that sometimes impede the modest 6.1-inch touchscreen and require a tiny brainstorm to figure out.

Basic controls come user-friendly with clearly marked buttons and big knobs.
