Let's Look at the All-new 2021 Toyota Venza in Peoria, AZ

If your inner Goldilocks has been looking for something just right, with quiet luxury sedan comfort and crossover practicality, Toyota's all-new Venza is going to leave you very comfy and satisfied. This summer, you'll find the all-new 2021 Toyota Venza in Peoria offers up the best of all worlds, delivering style, luxury, performance and fuel efficiency. The Venza fits in the Toyota lineup between the RAV4 and Highlander, but Venza is bringing in an extra touch of elegance with some upscale Lexus-style features you're going to love. In the Forbes 2021 Toyota Venza review, they note that Venza "blurs the line between mainstream and luxury."

The All-New 2021 Crossover offers the best of all worlds

You'll find the all-new 2021 Toyota Venza in Peoria offered in three different trim levels - LE, XLE and Limited. All trims in the Venza will offer up a quiet ride with the help of additional sound dampening materials added to wheel arches, engine bay, and headliner, plus the use of acoustic glass in the windshield. The new Venza is built on the TNGA-K platform, which is shared by other models, and provides excellent collision protection. We expect the 2021 Venza to achieve top NHTSA ratings. Toyota's Safety Sense 2.0 is standard and includes lane departure alert, dynamic cruise control, auto high beams, and a system designed to provide automatic braking should the driver not react in a timely manner under circumstances of an impending collision.

First look at the all-new 2021 Toyota Venza

Outside, the all-new 2021 Toyota Venza shows off a sleek profile and elegant front visage with stylish full LED headlamps visually connected by a sweeping chrome accent. At the rear, wrap-around headlamps, connected by a full-width light bar complete the cohesive look.

Inside, it really shines. A first in the Toyota lineup, Venza Limited trim features an available Star Gaze panoramic sun roof with electrochromic glass technology. Just a touch of the button changes the roof from clear glass with full sunlight to frosted glass that brings in as much light, but without the direct sun rays and associated heat which is a big plus for Phoenix Valley car shoppers. This feature is normally only found in luxury/premium vehicles like Mercedes-Benz SL-Class. More luxury-level touches include a 12.3 touchschreen and 10-inch color headsup display.

More 2021 Toyota Venza Features and Specs

Standard features include Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Amazon Alexa connectivity as well as SiriusXM satellite radio. In the LE the standard 8-inch touchscreen provides the user interface and includes a 6-speaker audio system with 4-channel amplifier. A larger, 12.3-inch touchscreen paired with a 9-speaker premium JBL sound system plus in-dash navigation is available on the XLE and is standard on the Limited trim. All trims have a standard backup camera and hands-free power liftgate. An available rearview mirror allows the driver an unobstructed view in the rearview should passengers or cargo block normal viewing. The Limited trim also includes a Bird's Eye View camera that offers a complete 360-degree overhead view of the Venza's surroundings.

This elegant, yet practical crossover offers up more than 36 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row. That's more than the 2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid, 2020 Mazda CX-5 or our own 2020 RAV4. Another practical feature you'll find in the 2021 Toyota Venza is a technology called "S-flow." The S-flow system senses which seats are occupied in order to send A/C to only those areas, keeping all passengers comfortably cool while saving on energy consumption.

The Venza Hybrid Powertrain

The all-new 2021 Toyota Venza in Peoria comes with a hybrid powertrain made up of a 2.5L 4-cyl engine mated to a set of 3 electric motors which together produce up to 219 horsepower. This combination will rate up to 40mpg combined fuel economy - that's equivalent to the RAV4 hybrid, although the Venza is somewhat larger than the RAV4. The gas engine in front powers the front wheels, while Electronic On-Demand AWD employs a separate rear-mounted electric motor to power the rear wheels as needed, which means there is no drive shaft connecting front and rear axles, so no hump running down the center of the cabin floor.  Venza's hybrid system includes a newly-developed lithium-ion battery to enhance performance. The battery is located beneath the rear seats so as not to infringe on cargo space. This hybrid system automatically enhances controllability during acceleration, deceleration and cornering plus also improves steering performance at higher speeds. Hybrid components are covered by a special 8-year/100,000 mile warranty, while the lithium ion battery is covered for 10 years or 150,000 miles.
