The interior offers an optional panoramic sunroof made from electrochromic glass that can shift from transparent to opaque at the touch of a button. Unfortunately, the flaws of the 2023 Venza are its smallish cargo area, a buzzy engine and a tight cabin which is smaller than many SUVs in its class. Taking a cue from its measurements, the Venza’s cabin was expected to be larger than that of a RAV4 but the Venza is slightly smaller. The Venza is the first Toyota to offer the optional electrochromic panoramic sunroof that the company calls Star Gaze. At the flip of a switch, the sunroof’s glass panels go from transparent to opaque; this impressive feature is something (until now) that we’ve encountered only on luxury cars such as the Mercedes-Benz SL-class.

The multimedia game of Venza was upgraded as there is a standard 8-inch display on LE and a 12.3-inch display on XLE and Limited, the new getup offers wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Google-based mapping, over-the-air updates and a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot. Venza’s USB ports have been updated too, now offering one USB-A and two USB-C ports. A previously optional head-up display is now standard on Limited trims, as are rain-sensing wipers.

Toyota upgraded the 2023 Venza’s safety suite from Safety Sense 2.0 to Safety Sense 2.5. Automatic emergency braking can now help prevent collisions when making unprotected left turns through an intersection, and the evasive steering assistant has been beefed up a bit. The suite also includes adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assist, but blind-spot monitoring, a rear-seat reminder and parking sensors are also included.
