2021 Toyota Venza: First Look

After discontinuing it in 2015, Toyota is bringing back its 2-row Venza crossover. The new 2021 Toyota Venza is more of an urban SUV than its previous more wagonlike model. Slotted between the 3-row midsize Toyota Highlander and the compact RAV4, the 2021 Toyota Venza comes as a hybrid only with standard all-wheel drive.

The Toyota Hybrid System II in the new Venza combines a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine with three electric motors (two on the front axle and one in the rear) to provide AWD. Total system output is 219 horsepower, and Toyota expects a combined 40 miles per gallon from the setup. It’s the same powertrain found in the 2020 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid.
