Our Point of View: Venza: From the Sketch Pad to the Street

July 23, 2008

by Toyota Open Road Blog

With the Toyota Venza arriving at dealerships later this year, we thought it would be cool to do a series of posts dedicated to this all-new product. With that in mind, we asked Venza exterior designer Ian Cartabiano, from Toyota’s Calty Design Research studio in Newport Beach, Calif., to take us through the early sketch process. Click here for the video.

It’s always interesting to see how a product goes from the sketch pad to the streets. For comparison, we’ve included a few photos of the 2009 Toyota Venza on Flickr. Please note that the vehicle in the photos is a prototype with optional equipment. Production models may vary.
