Toyota Venza was first launched in the American market in 2008 at the North American International Auto Show. It made its debut as the perfect blend of a Camry and a crossover SUV. The all-new Toyota Venza 2021 is an exclusively hybrid crossover that’s based on the Toyota Harrier recently unveiled for the Japanese market. It’s the second generation of Toyota Venza.
If you desire an intuitive driving experience, a sophisticated design coupled with smooth acceleration then you should definitely check out this masterpiece by Toyota.
Toyota Venza 2021 will be competing with Ford Edge, Honda Passport, and Hyundai Santa Fe once it enters the market.

Toyota hasn’t released the official prices as yet, but we expect to hear from them on that soon. According to our estimates, Toyota Venza 2021 will start in the mid-$30,000/ 24,311 pounds range estimated to be starting at $32,000/ 26,170 British Pounds and go up to around $45,000 when fully loaded. Toyota anticipates the all-new Venza 2021 to hit around 50,000 annual sales in the American market. It will reach U.S. dealerships in August.
Toyota Venza Hybrid 2021 utilizes the automaker’s ubiquitous 2.5-litre four-cylinder hybrid powertrain. The system produces a total of 219 horsepower, which is on par with the RAV4 Hybrid – an immensely popular vehicle within the US. While the power specs aren’t exactly thrilling, acceleration might be good if we are to go by the RAV 4 model. The Venza is equipped with a standard all-wheel-drive (AWD) system which employs three electric motors (two powering the front wheels and one for the rear). This powerful construction should definitely help it hustle when the accelerator pedal is pressed.

Since no other two-row midsize offers a hybrid, the Venza’s powertrain should make it the fuel economy leader in the segment. Toyota estimates the base LE trim will return 40 miles per gallon (mpg) combined which is a pretty impressive average ideal for your long rides. Fuel economy especially comes in handy when you’re driving on mountainous areas where fuel stations are miles apart.
Toyota Venza 2021’s interior is a fashionable one as it comes packed with a state of the art cabin with a wide array of advance tech features. It is flanked by a leatherette trim that extends from the centre console to the doors.
Venza 2021 is equipped with heated front seats. The air-conditioning feature is pretty good and economical as it can activate the fans solely for occupied seats for further fuel savings. One of the most intriguing features is the optional Star Gaze panoramic electrochromic glass roof.
Other features include:
- 12.3-inch touchscreen display
- Digital rearview mirror
- Head-up display
- Surround-view parking camera
- Rear camera cleaning system
- Digital rearview mirror
- Android Auto
- Apple CarPlay
- Amazon Alexa
The Venza is also equipped with Toyota Safety Sense 2.0, a suite of advanced safety and driving aids. Standard safety features include pre-collision warning with pedestrian and bicycle detection, lane departure mitigation, a blind-spot monitor and adaptive cruise control. The XLE and Limited models further add an automated parking function.
According to Toyota’s press release: 36-month/36,000 mile basic new-vehicle warranty applies to all components other than normal wear and maintenance items. Additional 60-month warranties cover the powertrain for 60,000 miles and against perforation from corrosion for 60 months with no mileage limitation. Hybrid-related components that require repairs needed to correct defects in materials or workmanship are covered for 8 years/100,000 miles, whichever comes first from the original date of first use when sold as new. The HV battery is covered for 10 years/150,000 miles, whichever comes first, and is transferrable across ownership.
The 2021 Venza also comes standard with ToyotaCare, a complimentary plan covering normal factory-scheduled maintenance, for two years or 25,000 miles, whichever comes first, and 2 years of Roadside Assistance, regardless of mileage.
