Passport vs Venza Cargo Room Comparison

The exterior of the Venza is physically larger than the RAV4 which is why it is often compared against larger models like the Passport, but its hybrid drivetrain takes up more room. That combined with its shorter stature makes it have a little less passenger room and less cargo room than the RAV4. Still, we can see how it compares against the similarly-priced Passport.
