It has been awhile since we have seen new Toyota Venza models take to the road. While many models from the first generation of the Venza are still on the road, Toyota decided five years was enough of a break before relaunching the midsize crossover SUV. The 2021 model year of the Venza should arrive at dealerships in summer of 2020 to strengthen the automaker’s already robust SUV lineup.
The Venza, in terms of size, will bridge a small gap between the RAV4 and the Highlander, but will remain a two-row vehicle. The chart below details some of the most important traits of the Venza and how it will help pave the way forward for Toyota crossover SUVs. There will be three trim levels but pay attention to what you can find standard below.
Android Auto™, Amazon Alexa, and Apple CarPlay® Connectivity
Lane Departure Alert
JBL® Premium Audio Sound System
Pedestrian Detecting Technology
Steering Wheel Mounted Audio, Cruise, and Bluetooth Controls
The Toyota Venza doesn’t return for 2021 like a bigger RAV4. Since it exists only as a hybrid with AWD and a slew of high-tech safety features on every trim level, the Venza proves what Toyota can do when they release a new model. If you think of the five years the Venza spent out of production as a metamorphosis, the Venza is ready to emerge as a future-ready crossover with Lexus-like appeal.
