2013 Toyota Venza TeasedEnlarge Photo
Toyota has announced it will be refreshing the Venza crossover for the 2013 model year. The refreshed CUV will be fully revealed next month at the New York Auto Show.
While the teaser shows us merely the headlight, we can already see that the updated styling closely mimics that of the new Camry and refreshed Avalon. The grille appears to be simplified with two cars, and the inside part of the headlight now features LED daytime running lights on the Limited trim model.
Toyota has told us the refresh will include a modified upper and lower grille, new fog lights, and updated taillights. A new 19-inch wheel design will be offered along with three new exterior colors: Attitude Black, Cypress Pearl, and Cosmic Gray Mica.
Three trim levels ranging from LE, XLE and Limited will still be available as will front or all-wheel drive. While the Limited model will only come with a V-6 engine, the LE and XLE will be available with a four-cylinder.
The base LE model will now feature display audio, blind spot mirrors, puddle lamps, and outer mirror turn signals as standard equipment. The XLE adds standard driver memory seating, reverse til outer mirrors and display audio with navigation and Toyota's Entune multi-media system. The Limited model includes everything from the LE and XLE, but also adds LED daytime running lights and a premium hard drive-based navigation system with Entune and JBL-branded speaker.
