Toyota breaks the sameness barrier in the midsize two-row Crossover Utility Vehicle category with the all new 2021 Venza.

22 May 2020 | International News : U.S.A

With a striking new debut, Toyota is breaking the sameness barrier in the midsize two-row Crossover Utility Vehicle (CUV) category.

The all new 2021 Venza delivers an intuitive driving experience with smooth acceleration, predictable handling, and low noise, vibration, and harshness, all wrapped in a sophisticated design.

The Venza's 2.5-litre DOHC four-cylinder engine and three electric motors produce a combined 216bhp
The new generation Toyota Hybrid System in the Venza combines a high-efficiency 2.5-litre DOHC four-cylinder engine with three electric motors in a highly compact system.

The gas engine employs Variable Valve Timing-intelligent system by Electric motor (VVT-iE) on the intake camshaft, and VVT-i on the exhaust camshaft. A variable cooling system and a fully variable oil pump further help improve engine efficiency.

The proven tech seamlessly delivers 216bhp of total system power and a projected preliminary manufacturer-estimated 17km/L in LE trim. As with all Toyota hybrids, the feeling of everyday acceleration and responsiveness is heightened by the way the electric motor boosts low-speed torque. The hybrid system optimises the level of electric motor assistance and gas engine rpm without the engine running at high revs. The Venza's hybrid system also adopts a newly-developed lithium-ion battery to enhance performance and size and weight.

The 2021 Venza comes standard with Toyota's Electronic On-Demand All-Wheel Drive (AWD), a highly efficient system that takes maximum advantage of the hybrid powertrain's benefits. Instead of using a transfer case and driveshaft to the rear wheels, Electronic On-Demand AWD employs a separate rear-mounted electric motor to power the rear wheels when needed.

The 2021 Venza is built around a version of the Toyota New Global Architecture K (TNGA-K) platform that underpins some of the company's sedans and crossovers. As such, the Venza delivers the best of both worlds - sedan-like driving comfort and CUV versatility.

The 2021 Venza offers ample room for five in a highly manoeuverable package, offering 1028 litres of carrying space behind the second row. A host of tech-focused features are available, including a 12.3-inch touchscreen display with nine JBL speakers, a 7.0-inch multi-information display, digital rear-view mirror, and 10-inch colour Head-Up Display. Other available features include a Star Gaze fixed panoramic glass roof, a first-ever for Toyota, and heated and ventilated front seats that set the stage for true, graceful grand touring.

For customers who seek premium experiences in a vehicle, keeping unwanted noise out is paramount. The high-strength TNGA-K platform is the first defence against noise intrusion, curbing vibration through the steering, floor and structure.

Suspension tuning resists road surface disturbances, tire noise is reduced via strategically placed insulation, and an acoustic glass windshield helps minimise wind noise.

In addition to exemplary collision protection provided by the TNGA-K platform projected to achieve top NHTSA safety ratings, the 2021 Venza comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense 2.0, a comprehensive suite of active safety systems that includes Pre-Collision System with Daytime/Low-Light Vehicle and Pedestrian Detection, plus Daytime Bicycle Detection, Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Automatic High Beams, Lane Tracing Assist, and Road Sign Assist amongst others.
