Some of us have a clear sense of what’s important to us. And if you’re one
of those people, then the 2013 Toyota Venza was designed for you. Whether
you like cycling on back country roads or combing local antique shops, Venza
is equipped to help you do it in style. It offers sophisticated lines and serious
versatility, with four doors, a rear liftgate and a spacious, flexible interior. It also
gives you a choice of three model grades, a 4-cylinder or V6 engine, and Front-
Wheel Drive or available All-Wheel Drive. With all that Venza has to offer, your
lifestyle is limited only by your imagination. 2013 Toyota Venza. Moving Forward.
Style is about much more than just
appearance. It’s about an elegant
approach to life. An openness to
new experiences. And a way of
doing things that seems natural —

you get things done while enjoying yourself along the way. From advanced multimedia
systems to cutting-edge audio capabilities, this is one vehicle that can handle your to-do
list as well as your playlist.
The available Entune® multimedia system is a collection of popular mobile
applications and data services. Entune® includes three years of complimentary
access to apps and data services delivered via most smartphones and some
feature phones. Once the phone is connected to the vehicle using Bluetooth®2
wireless technology or a USB cable, the features of Entune® are operated
using the vehicle’s controls or, for some services, by voice recognition. See
toyota.com/entune for more details.
JBL Synthesis® Surround Sound
The available JBL Synthesis® surround sound system features 13 speakers,
a subwoofer and an amplifier — all acoustically optimized specifically for
Venza’s spacious interior — delivering brilliant clarity and great dynamic
range. It is a system as refined as the vehicle itself.
iPod®3/MP3 Player Holder With USB Port4
and Auxiliary Audio Jack
Dock your iPod® or MP3/WMA player in the special holder in the center
console, then plug it in via the USB port, and an iPod® interface appears on
Venza’s audio system display. On-screen, you can sort tracks in a variety
of ways, including by song, artist, genre and playlist.
Smart Key System5 With Push Button Start
On XLE and Limited, the Smart Key System with Push Button Start lets you
lock or unlock your vehicle while the Smart Key fob is in your pocket or bag.
There’s also a touch-sensor feature that lets you lock the doors by touching
the top of the door handle or unlock them by grabbing the handle.
Blind Spot Mirrors
New for 2013, the upper outside corner on each of Venza’s outside mirrors
gives you a wide-angle view to help you detect vehicles that might be
lurking in your blind spots.

the rear seatbacks folded down, it offers a full 70.2 cubic feet of cargo space.1 And with
the 60/40 split and fold-flat rear seats, you can transport any combination of people or
payload. Plus, a convenient power liftgate and a low liftover height make access to the
cargo area easy. You could say Venza is loaded with possibilities.
One-Touch Fold-Flat Seats
Venza’s spacious 5-passenger cabin easily transforms into a versatile cargo
carrier. Thanks to the handy one-touch fold-flat levers located in the cargo
area, the rear seatbacks quickly fold flat.
Reclining Rear Seats
The attentive Venza gives rear-seat passengers first-class treatment. With the
pull of a lever on either side, the 60/40 rear seatbacks recline.
Venza’s center console spoils rear-seat passengers with rear air vents.
The vents are operated by the dual zone climate control system, which also
features an air filter that traps dust and other airborne particles.
Power Liftgate With Jam Protection
Venza’s available power liftgate can be operated in a variety of ways. It can
be both opened and closed with buttons on the dashboard or on the remote
keyless entry or available Smart Key2 fobs. The liftgate can also be closed by
pressing a button located on the liftgate itself.
Venza offers many places to store things. Under the sliding center armrest’s
padded top, you’ll find a storage tray and a deep storage compartment.
There’s another large storage compartment, complete with a 12V auxiliary

Make every getaway a clean one.
With its refined exterior lines and sculpted front end, Venza disposes of any preconceptions one
might have about needing to sacrifice style for versatility. Offering ample seating for five and room for
everyone’s gear, it’s as well-suited for a weekend road trip as it is for a night on the town.

Handling is best when all four wheels pitch in.
Whether you’re engaged in straight-line acceleration, low-speed cornering, highway
cruising or hard braking, Venza’s available All-Wheel Drive (AWD) is engineered to distribute
power between the front and rear wheels according to driving conditions, helping to
enhance traction at all times.
Venza was designed with performance in mind. Venza V6 with Front-Wheel Drive accelerates from 0-60 mph in just
6.7 seconds.1 Plus, its wide stance, available 20-in. alloy wheels and lower center of gravity give it precise handling.
What’s more, when equipped with the available Tow Prep Package, Venza V6 can tow up to 3500 lb.2
All-Wheel Drive (AWD) With Active Torque Control
The available All-Wheel Drive with active torque control has a knack for direction. AWD actively monitors each wheel,
distributing the engine’s power to the appropriate wheel at the appropriate moment. This advanced technology helps
to optimize traction on both wet and dry surfaces.
Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control (VSC)3
To compensate for a loss of traction while cornering and help prevent sideways slipping, Venza utilizes Enhanced VSC.

Toyota offers a wide range of available pet accessories designed to help
you transport your furry companions in comfort and security. Ask your local
Toyota dealer for all the details.
Advanced Airbag System
Not all collisions call for the same level of protection. Venza comes
standard with an advanced dual stage front airbag system for the driver
and front passenger. In a collision, the system senses impact severity
and adjusts airbag deployment accordingly.
AUTOMATIC HIGH BEAM
Limited’s Automatic High Beam
feature enhances visibility when
driving at night or in other low light
conditions. The system detects
oncoming vehicles as far away as
2000 feet and, depending on the
circumstances, automatically switches
the high beams on and off.

Weight Ratings and follow all instructions in your Owner’s Manual. The maximum you can tow depends on the total weight of any cargo, occupants and available equipment. Calculated with new SAE J2807 method. 3. V6 models only.
4. 2013 EPA-estimated mileage. Actual mileage will vary. 5. Toyota strives to build vehicles to match customer interest and thus they typically are built with popular options and option packages. Not all options/packages are available
separately and some may not be available in all regions of the country. See toyota.com for information about options/packages commonly available in your area. If you would prefer a vehicle without any or with different options, contact
your dealer to check for current availability or the possibility of placing a special order. 6. The automatic high beam system can help improve vision at night. However, conditions such as a dirty windshield, rapidly changing light conditions
or hilly terrain will limit effectiveness so the driver may need to manually change the high beams from on to off. See Owner’s Manual for details. 7. May not be compatible with all mobile phones, MP3/WMA players and like models.

Stability Control (VSC) is an electronic system designed to help the driver maintain vehicle control under adverse conditions. It is not a substitute for safe driving practices. Factors including speed, road conditions and driver steering input
can all affect whether VSC will be effective in preventing a loss of control. Please see your Owner’s Manual for further details. 19. Brake Assist is designed to help the driver take full advantage of the benefits of ABS. It is not a substitute for
safe driving practices. Braking effectiveness also depends on proper brake-system maintenance and tire and road conditions. 20. Smart Stop Technology operates only in the event of certain simultaneous brake and gas pedal applications.
When engaged, the system will reduce engine power to help the brakes bring the vehicle to a stop. Factors including speed, road conditions and driver input can all impact stopping distance. Smart Stop Technology is not a substitute for
safe and attentive driving and does not guarantee instant stopping. Please see your Owner’s Manual for further details. 21. All the airbag (AB) systems are Supplemental Restraint Systems. All ABs (if installed) are designed to inflate only
under certain conditions and in certain types of severe collisions: frontal and knee ABs typically inflate in frontal collisions; side and side curtain ABs in side collisions; Roll-Sensing Curtain ABs at a severe tilt degree, roll or lateral G-force. In
all other accidents, the ABs will not inflate. To decrease the risk of injury from an inflating AB, always wear seatbelts, sit upright in the middle of the seat as far back as possible and do not lean against the door. Do not put objects in front of
an AB or around the seatback. Do not use a rearward-facing child seat in any front passenger seat. The force of an inflating AB may cause serious injury or death. See your Owner’s Manual for further information/warnings. 22. Active front
headrests can help reduce the extent of whiplash in certain types of rear-end collisions. 23. The Toyota Tire Pressure Monitor alerts the driver when tire pressure is critically low. For optimal tire wear and performance, tire pressure should
be checked regularly with a gauge; do not rely solely on the monitor system. See your Owner’s Manual for details. 24. Hill Start Assist Control (HAC) is designed to help minimize backward rolling on steep ascents. It is not a substitute for
safe driving judgment and practices. Factors including grade, surface conditions and driver input can all affect whether HAC will be effective in preventing a loss of control. Please see your Owner’s Manual for further details. 25. The engine
immobilizer is a state-of-the-art anti-theft system. When you insert your key into the ignition switch or bring a Smart Key fob into the vehicle, the key transmits an electronic code to the vehicle. The engine will only start if the code in the
transponder chip inside the key or Smart Key fob matches the code in the vehicle’s immobilizer. Because the transponder chip is embedded in the key or Smart Key fob, it can be costly to replace. If you lose a key or Smart Key fob, your
Toyota dealer can help. Alternatively, you can find a qualified independent locksmith to perform high-security key services by consulting your local Yellow Pages or by contacting www.aloa.org
