Refined and Redesigned – The 2021 Toyota Venza
After almost a 6 year hiatus, the Toyota Venza is back for 2021 with refined style and flare. A mid-size two-row crossover SUV with a twist, Venza blends smart, stylish design, with a refined interior, brimming with cutting-edge entertainment and connectivity, and powered exclusively by Toyota’s latest hybrid-electric powertrain. Venza gives you the confidence to embrace the moment and go where life takes you.
Exterior and Interior
Coming in 7 different colours and 3 different trims, you’re sure to find the Venza that matches your style. At first glance, the Venza embodies luxury and style, from the front grille that boasts a completely new design with matte black detailing and curved LED headlights that blend perfectly into the front profile, to the rear profile features with end-to-end taillights and dual exhaust tips. Riding on 18” alloy wheels, or available 19” wheels, Venza more than lives up to its promise of a refined ride.
You can also enjoy a Toyota first. The Venza Limited features an available Star Gaze fixed panoramic glass roof with frost control. Electrochromic glass technology allows you to switch from transparent to frosted mode, which reduces direct sunlight and gives the cabin an even more open and airy feel–all to be enjoyed at the push of a button. The Venza’s interior also wraps you in luxury with premium materials, including available Softex seats, and exceptional attention to detail. Ambient lighting welcomes you to a driver-focused cockpit, elegantly equipped with impressive technology, like an available 12.3” touchscreen display, and a climate control system operated with intelligent-touch capacitive controls.
Roominess and versatility will also never be a problem. You’ll find 1,027 litres (36.3 cu. ft.) of carrying space behind the second row, so the Venza offers plenty of room for everything from sports equipment to weekend getaways. The 60/40 split-folding rear seats open up even more options for bringing friends or family along for the ride, or the goods you’ll need for whatever adventure you’re on. Tech and Safety The innovation to the Venza doesn’t stop there. The interior also offers a host of available tech features, including a 4.2-inch touchscreen display on the LE, standard with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Amazon Alexa connectivity and SiriusXM radio, or, if you are looking to enhance your entertainment experience, the XLE offers a 12.3-inch touchscreen display with Embedded Navigation and controls that can be switched between the driver or front passenger operation, as well as 9 JBL speakers. The Venza also has a 10” colour head-up display and bird’s eye rearview camera with rear camera washer and will come equipped with standard Connected Service by Toyota.
Venza sets the bar with a high level of standard safety features, including Toyota Safety Sense 2.0, Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, and integrated backup camera.
Power and Performance – Toyota Hybrid System
The Venza is offered exclusively as a hybrid model with the next-generation Toyota Hybrid System delivering the best of both worlds – impressive power output coupled with high fuel efficiency. The system combines a 2.5 litre DOHC four-cylinder engine with three electric motors to deliver 219 horsepower, and a preliminary manufacturer-estimated 6.1 L/100 km combined fuel consumption to help you do more with less.
The Venza also comes equipped with a self-charging hybrid battery that recharges on the go, using innovations like regenerative braking to capture and transform energy into electricity and store it in the battery.
It also offers three drive modes, EV, ECO, and POWER that are designed to utilize and compartmentalize different functions on the car to produce three different driving experiences. You can learn more about these three drive modes here.
Electronic On-Demand All-Wheel-Drive (AWD-E)
The 2021 Venza comes standard with Toyota’s Electronic On-Demand All-Wheel Drive (AWD-E), a highly efficient system that takes maximum advantage of the hybrid powertrain’s benefits. When not needed, 100 percent of torque is sent to the front wheels, enhancing fuel efficiency. When required, up to 80 percent of the driving force can be distributed to the rear wheels, using a dedicated rear-mounted electric motor. The result is superior traction in inclement weather, and superior handling and stability when accelerating and cornering.
