Toyota unveiled the revised Venza at this year's New York Auto Show, where the family hauler bowed with a redesigned front fascia marked with by a more restrained grille, new headlamp arrays and fog lamp bezels.

Similarly, the Venza now wears a few updates to the sideview mirrors and tail lamps. Indoors, buyers can expect to find the cabin largely untouched, though new steering wheel buttons are along for the ride. Consumers may also opt for the company's clever Entune phone app integration system.

The first 2013 Venza models should be trickling into dealers nationwide as you read this. Check out the full press release below for more details.

      "2.7-liter four-cylinder engine" Pretty sure that's a boo boo.

      I didn't realize they even still made this I haven't seen that many nor have I really seen them marketed anymore. Still pretty stylish for the segment I suppose.

      yuck, what a hideous looking excuse for a CUV. There are better choices out there, even Toyota's own Highlander (which is also hideous) is a much better value.

      I think the Venza is the Toyota secretly more loved than car guys than not because, well, it's not trying too hard to hide the fact that it's a Camry station wagon (unlike the Highlander, which is trying very, very hard to hide the fact that it is a Camry wagon). But it's let down by the fact that its looks write a check that its actual performance can't cash. I really, really wish that there was a for real TRD performance package for this that gave it a little more ooomph and a little more curve handling ability.

        yeah, its about the closest thing we can get to a real midsize wagon. (not some midsize dressed in drag trying to look like an SUV) and its not a bad looking car. too bad its a bland and overpriced toyota

        Speak for yourself. I've always thought this was one of Toyota's best looking cars in the current crop.

          You can bet if this was any other brand people wouldn't complain so much. There are plenty of other ugly products out there that people like (Flex, ahem) because of the badge. Let them be. Let the trolling begin!

      Yes, you can put a price on ugly......

      This is an appliance like many other Toyota products. I'm not a fan of the front facia styling but the car's appearance isn't offensive. To call it ugly is just hyperbole.

          Actually if you wanted athletic, a real Camry wagon would be less bloated and more athletic/sporty looking than an suv-ified version. Buyers don't want athletic apparently, they want bloated.

      Don't they have art schools in Japan or ever heard the term "form follows fuction"?

      lol I can't believe the Toyota haters call even this car ugly. This is probably one of the best looking CUVs out there.
