Interesting. I too am waiting for the 2012's. Thanks for the update. I'll let you know if I hear anything.

The 2012 Venza has been the pace car at many of the NASCAR races this season including yesterday's race in AZ.

So watch out, the initial dealer order, flooring, for the new model year will only include FULLY LOADED models.

If there is a 2012 venza I hope that there would be a better interior and feel more substantial. But I highly doubt that I will get another Venza.

take a look at the 2012 camry. If the venza is built on the same assembly line, I suspect that there will be improvements in both jmechanicals and interior. the reveiws for the 2012 driving impression are very positive. we will see. rr70

A reporter is looking to speak with someone who bought a new Honda or Toyota within the last two months. Specifically, he’s most interested in speaking with someone who intentionally held off on buying one of these vehicles last year because the dealer did not have it in stock. If you meet this criteria, please send a brief description of your experience and your contact info to predmunds.com by no later than Wednesday, February 29, 2012.
#14 of 27 Still buy 2012 or wait for 2013 model?
Mar 12, 2012 (7:30 am)
regarding the introduction of the 2013 Venza the NY auto show, I was wondering whether these modest changes are worth the wait for the new model?
I was planning to purchase in Jul/Aug - do you think I should wait n' get the new model or try to purchase the 12' Venza at an "appropriate" price/rebate?
Thx so much in advance!

The full reveal of the 2013 Venza will occur next month so I'd wait to see exactly how different the changes are before deciding on a 2012 (carryover) or jump in on the 2013. According to the Toyota release, the exterior changes are minor - revised front grille, LED running lights on the Limited, revised taillights (LED - hopefully) and puddle lamps w/turn signal indicators in the mirrors. There may be other minor tweaks that weren't referenced. The interior will get memory seats and upgraded audio features. I would guess they may change the wood tone along with some other minor items.
I purchased a 2011 back in late October based on the 2012's not having any external changes (except for the trim level badge). I would have waited had I known the 2013's were going to feature changes that I may be interested in. I did get a very good deal on my Venza and have been pleased with the car in general but may jump in on a 2013 if the changes warrant such a move.
In summary, if you want an updated Venza that will look 'new' for the next two model years then the 2013 is the way to go. Of course you will pay more over a 2012 if the updates aren't of any interest.
I look forward to seeing the 2013 Venza when it debuts in April.
