A low roofline and centre of gravity are a great indicator of the design ethos of the sleek and stylish 2021 Toyota Venza. Meant to impress from any angle, the sculpted exterior of the 2021 Venza imparts an air of refinement, from the projector-style LED headlights, to the 18-inch alloy wheels or rear full-width LED light bar. That refined look continues inside, where ambient lighting and premium materials like the available SofTex seats provide luxurious comfort. A standard, 8-way power adjustable driver’s seat with auto-slide-away functionality moves to the rearmost position when you enter and exit the Venza, while heated and ventilated front seats are found standard on the XLE and Limited trims. The Limited trim also features an available Star Gaze™ fixed panoramic glass roof with frost control—a first in the Toyota lineup—allowing you to go from transparent to frosted glass at the press of a button. The Venza is still an SUV, and as such you’ll find an expansive 1,027 litres of cargo space behind the 60-40 split-folding second row seats, which you can lower to provide even more cargo capacity. The 2021 Toyota Venza simply blends elegance and utility unlike any other crossover on the road.

While some manufacturers might be content with such a superbly designed crossover SUV, the team at Toyota wanted to take the 2021 Venza further—quite literally—with an advanced Hybrid Synergy Drive powertrain. Combining three electric motors with a 2.5-litre DOHC engine, the Toyota Venza is capable of producing 219 horsepower along with instant torque and a low estimated fuel consumption of just 5.9 L/100 km in the city (and only 6.4 L/100 km on the highway). Matched to an Electronically Controlled Continuously Variable Transmission (eCVT) the Venza shifts as smoothly as it handles, thanks to its low centre of gravity along with a MacPherson front strut suspension and multi-link rear suspension system. Add in the Venza’s electronic on-demand all wheel drive (AWD-E) system, where efficiency performance begins with 100% of the torque being channeled through the front wheels in optimal conditions, and up to 80% of torque automatically being transferred to the rear wheels when the road conditions call for it. Three unique drive modes add to the efficiency of the Venza, while sound absorbing insulation makes the cabin of this Toyota crossover incredibly quiet. The result? The 2021 Toyota Venza provides a performance as refined as its look.

An integrated back-up camera, featuring an available Bird’s Eye View Camera with Rear Camera Washer, add convenience along with safety to this Toyota crossover, while the Intelligent Clearance Sonar system found on the XLE and Limited trims doubles down with both audible and visual warnings when stationary objects are in your way. An 8-inch Apple CarPlay™- and Android Auto™-compatible touch screen comes standard on the Venza LE, while the XLE and Limited trims offer a 12.3-inch touch screen, with all trims providing access to Toyota’s advanced Connected Services.
