A complete pig.

My MPG is averaging between 24-25 MPG which is quite acceptable. Most of my driving is on highways with maybe 10% city (stop & go) which would probably lower my average. Best MPG on highway was 27.8 mpg as calculated by the onboard MPG display. see full Toyota Venza review

For such a large vehicle with cargo space bordering on a small SUV, it gets fantastic fuel economy relative to those other SUVs. You get the best of both worlds. see full Toyota Venza review

Would like to see Toyota add a hybrid model to the Venza line. If they did I would buy a another one to replace our current 2nd car. As is I am leaning toward a Golf TDI wagon. Highlander hybrid is too pricey for us. Venza gives us 22 mpg combined. see full Toyota Venza review
