The 2014 Toyota Venza vs. the 2014 Honda Crosstour
Sure the 2014 Toyota Venza is a well-made, reliable vehicle, but here at Middletown Honda we simply don’t think it stacks up to the 2014 Honda Crosstour. This crossover, based on the latest Accord, offers smooth handling, flexibility, impressive fuel economy, and a spacious, versatile interior. We simply don’t think the Venza has what it takes to compete with the Crosstour. Read on for more specifics.
Powertrains, Performance, and Efficiency
When you compare apples to apples, or, in this case, engines to engines, the Crosstour comes out on top every time. Take a look:
- The base 2014 Honda Crosstour with two-wheel drive and gets an inline four-cylinder good for 192 hp and a 31 mpg highway rating from the EPA.* The base Venza gets a four-cylinder good for only 181 hp and a 26 mpg highway rating from the EPA.
- The top end 2014 Honda Crosstour EX-L with all-wheel drive and a V6 cranks out 278 hp and still nets a 28 mpg highway rating from the EPA.* The top end Venza with a similar V6 and all-wheel drive only makes 268 hp and is rated at 25 mpg on the highway. Again, the choice seems pretty clear.
The Crosstour also carries almost a gallon more gas than the Venza, so with better fuel economy and a larger tank, you’ll be able to go longer between fill-ups.
Comfort and Convenience
The Venza is well equipped, but the Honda simply has it beat in some key areas. The Crosstour gets a rearview camera standard. That’s especially important for backing up or parking in busy or crowded areas. The Honda also gets floor-mats, which are important for all-weather use. Finally, the Honda gets a power moonroof standard and that’s only an option on the Venza.
