Vamped Venza: The Release of a Redefining CUV

Smart, safe, stylish—this is the all-new Toyota Venza.


Recently, there’s been a surge in popularity of crossover utility vehicles (CUVs), and for good reason; they provide all the functionality and versatility of an SUV in a smaller, more compact size. Across manufacturers, the style and abilities of CUVs have rarely differed—that is until now.



The Venza Crossover


Toyota’s newly released 2021 Venza raises the standard of what a crossover should be and exceedingly redefines its prior model. Released in 2008, the first-generation Toyota Venza sold through 2017 and was then discontinued. Now, it makes a striking reappearance as a hybrid-only crossover and boasts an intuitive driving experience, smooth acceleration, predictable handling, and sophisticated design.


The Venza’s exterior is sleek and sharp, with redefined body lines that capture your attention. Inside, the CUV seats five, allowing for sedan-like comfort with maximum maneuverability.


Standard on the new Venza is the Toyota Hybrid System II powertrain and advanced Electronic On-Demand All-Wheel Drive. It delivers comfortable urban highway performance and exceptional fuel efficiency.


Available technology features include a 12.3-inch touchscreen display, nine JBL speakers, a 7-inch multi-information display, a digital rear-view mirror, a 10-inch Head-Up display, and heated and ventilated seating. The 2021 Venza also debuts Toyota’s first-ever Star Gaze™ fixed panoramic glass roof.


With a suite of safety features from Toyota Safety Sense, it’s obvious that safety is at the forefront of this CUV. In addition to collision protection provided by the TNGA-K platform, the Venza is also fortified with a pre-collision system, full-speed range dynamic cruise control, lane departure alert, steering assist, automatic high beams, lane tracing assist, and road sign assist.
