The best year for a used
Toyota Venza
depends on what factors in a vehicle are most important to you, but in most aspects, it’s pretty hard to go wrong with 2009 through 2013 or 2021 through 2022.
If safety is important to you, you might appreciate knowing that most model years of the
Venza were Top Safety Picks by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). 2009 to 2013 Venzas and 2021 to 2022 Venzas have all received that elusive title for their model years.
Each model year of the Venza also tends to receive average to above-average reliability ratings. For each model year, J.D. Power’s overall ratings for the Toyota Venza have been 81/100 or higher. The highest-scoring years on this front were 2014 with 87/100 and 2015 with 86/100.
As important as it is, the Toyota Venza’s s model year isn’t the only factor you should consider while car shopping. Here are some additional elements worth paying attention to:
  • The Toyota Venza’s overall condition
  • Its mileage
  • Its accident history
  • Its average
    car insurance
  • Commonly reported problems
  • Recalls or open investigations for the model year
  • Other factors that are important to you, whether that’s fuel economy, cargo volume, drivetrain options, or available tech or safety features
