    owner of 2009 venza v6 awd. 2 years late in changing for a new version because of the
    unchanged updating over 7 editions 2009 to 2015. i have been eagerly waiting for venza model updates. I has been too long. Lately I have been strongly considering the ford edge.

    The pictures here shows the 2013 European Auris Sport Wagon! Surely this is not going to be re-badged as the Venza in the US? It is a much, much smaller car and quite honestly in a different class totally. I hope this is a mistake by your editors.

    I have been a toyota owner of many vehicles for years. I have since moved from the Camry to the 2010 Venza V6 5 years ago. I really love the size of the vehicle and the height because its still a car but also give the luxury of a SUV without being a SUV. I love this car because I can buy items and be able to put it in my car. I don’t want a SUV truck which is much more bulkier and the Venza is more compact. I was anxiously waiting on the 2016 but was told the vehicle is being discontinued altogether. I will be very disappointed if this is the decision made by Toyota. This vehicle is a very good vehicle and there are a lot of Venza owners in the US that love this car. Please release the 2016 Venza with a new look and better quality leather and sound system but not take away the luxury of the vehicle exterior but upgrade the interior of the vehicle. Also consider more options for the color of the leather like brown and chocolate would be nice to add to the leather package. I am waiting to see the 2017 Venza so I can trade in my current one. Either way I want to purchase the new Venza when it comes on the market. Hope to hear an update on the new Venza soon. Regards
