The 2013 Honda Crosstour vs. the 2013 Toyota Venza

2013 Honda CrosstourMany drivers have been captivated with the versatility of the 2013 Honda Crosstour; you can see it for yourself at Silko Honda in Raynham, which is just a 15-minute drive southeast from Easton. The new Crosstour offers a roomy, versatile interior, along with agile driving dynamics and even the option of all-wheel drive. It’s drawn praise for combining the roominess of an SUV with the look and feel of a car, and it certainly stands out from the pack. That said, some drivers might look to wagon as an alternative, and a strong competitor is the 2013 Toyota Venza — so how do these models compare?

The Crosstour Stands Tall

While the 2013 Toyota Venza is a strong entrant into the wagon segment, we think that drivers who are looking for a versatile vehicle will be better served by choosing the 2013 Crosstour. Here are just a few of the reasons why the Honda model stands apart:

  • It starts with the price: the 2013 Crosstour features a base MSRP of $27,230, while the Venza’s base MSRP comes in at $27,850. While $620 may not seem like much when purchasing a vehicle, consider how many fill-ups that oculd give you.
  • The savings, of course, extend to fuel economy. The new Crosstour delivers 22 mpg city/31 mpg highway/25 mpg combined,* while the new Venza falls short with 20 mpg city/26 mpg highway/22 mpg combined. This is a small difference that will result in huge savings on time.
  • Despite the fuel savings the Crosstour offers more power, giving you 192 hp compared to 181 hp from the Venza.
  • Features that are standard on the 2013 Crosstour and optional on the 2013 Venza include a rearview camera, a power moonroof, and cargo area tie-downs.
