The interior is good; clean and comfortable. It will easily seat up to 5 adults, the materials used for the trimming are high quality and the front seats are heated.
From the promotional pictures, we can see that the new Venza will have a 6.1” color touchscreen fitted, this should control more than just the media system. The Venza will come as standard with satellite navigation and Bluetooth.
Another 3.5-inch TFT touch screen is specially designed for the driver, providing all the information about the car.
In addition, the car has all standard security features:
