We have a Highlander, which is based on a truck chassis (even thought of as a "truck" by insurance company) and the ride is a little noticeably rough, although not as much as a Tacoma...no knowledge of Venza. Take both for test rides over bumpy roads :}

We have a first generation Highlander and then and now I think it is based on the Camry chassis and is only beefed up slightly over the Camry. Ours has been flawless but we are very true to the maintenance schedule. The Venza has been nicknamed the Camry Wagon by many people because it is essentially a Camry with a Station Wagon type body from the rear doors back. The ride might be a little smoother than the Highlander but not so much that you will notice a big difference unless you are driving on a lot of really rough roads. The Highlander is more suitable for pulling and hauling although both share the same V6 engine. We currently have 3 Toyotas in our home and they have been the best vehicles we have even owned. The Sequoia is on a truck chassis but to my knowledge the Highlander is still on the Camry Chassis.

Toyota Highlander or Rav4 would be a better choice than venza. Highlander is better with features and it also comes in Hybrid. It is a bit pricey but I think it pays off with the style and comfort.

The Highlander will have a smoother ride because it doesn't ride as low to the ground.































But if you don't need the 3rd row I like the Venza better.
