Better than Subaru Outback!
Venza is the sport-wagon version of a Highlander, and is overall a better and more capable vehicle than Subaru Outback - especially when equipped with the V6, AWD, factory tow package, factory roof rack, and JBL Synthesis audio system. Unfortunately (and foolishly?) Toyota stopped making the highly-regarded and popular Venza...and FJ Cruiser. 4 stars instead of 5, because like many vehicle manufacturers, they could learn several valuable things in passenger ergonomics, controls, and user interfaces from Saab (even though they're long gone now).
