Toyota gave its midsize Venza crossover a mid-cycle refresh for the 2013 model year that included revised exterior styling, an available Entune multimedia system and more standard equipment for all trim levels.

While the changes add up to a more stylish and capable family hauler, they come with a price bump compared to the 2012 Venza. Mid-grade XLE models see an increase of up to $1,585, but come with new standard kit such as a navigation system, driver memory seat, reverse tilt outer mirrors and the aforementioned Entune system.

Entry-level LE models are up to $275 pricier, while top-spec Limited models go up $955.

LE and XLE models continue to feature a standard 2.7-liter four-cylinder with 182 horsepower and 182 lb-ft of torque, while the Limited gets a standard 3.5-liter V6 with 268 horsepower and 246 pound-feet of torque that is optional for the rest of the lineup.

Front-wheel-drive is the default configuration, while all-wheel-drive is available on all trim levels for roughly $1,450.
