I'm just going to say it: The 2014 Toyota Venza isn't much of a looker. Some call the Venza a wagon while others say it's a large hatchback, but it's certainly not a head-turner.
If you can get past the Venza's exterior, there's a lot to like about it, including its roomy interior.
The Venza has a 181-horsepower, 2.7-liter four-cylinder as well as an available 268-hp, 3.5-liter V-6. I drove an all-wheel-drive Venza Limited V6 with, that's right, the V-6 engine. It gets an EPA-estimated 18/25/21 mpg city/highway/combined. I managed to average 22 mpg in my weeklong test drive.
