Canada has 3 trims for the Venue. Not sure about Denim trim, I have seen that one on driving television, might have been Motor Week on TV. In Canada anyway, only the basic trim Venue comes in 6 speed manual.I just bought the Venue, Denim edition. Not sure it's for sale in Canada, but if it is, I recommend the Denim. Fully loaded with safety options, and I don't miss a moon roof, so I'm very pleased. I was looking at the RAV4 Prime, but it had been delayed due to supply chain issues, so opted for the Venue. I think the reviewers are right. It's the best in its price category.
Buying manualis a 100% deal breaker for me. Overshadows any other option, or standard equipment.
I still have to wait about 5 or 6 months before a test drive and financing is possible. May hold tight for now. Not the time to be buying cars perhaps, Trotsky!
