For the World Traveler: Toyota Venza
Fave feature: The convenient in-dash iPod holder that keeps your playlist at your fingertips.
Let’s say you need enough space to tote lots of extras, but you’re unwilling to give up on panache. If that’s you, then the Venza is, too. The Mahogany accented dashboard, electronic keychain that unlocks the car as you approach it, Bluetooth connectivity to link your cellie to the car’s speakers, rear DVD player, and automatic lift gate make this the perfect vehicle for family outings, road trips, and cruising. Plus, you’ll be amazed at how much you can cram into the back once the seats are folded down. And it’s got extra curb appeal since this is a brand-new car class from Toyota.
(Starts at $25,975; Mpg: 21 city/29 hwy; toyota.com)
