On sale in September in the United States.
The 2021 Toyota Venza will arrive in U.S. dealerships in September, and the automaker has released pricing. This new hybrid-powered crossover will compete in the midsize segment against the Ford Edge, the Chevrolet Blazer, the Hyundai Santa Fe, the GMC Acadia, the Kia Sorento, the Honda Passport and the Nissan Murano—none of which are available with a gas-electric powertrain for now.
The Venza is equipped with a 2.5L four-cylinder engine, three electric motors and an electronically controlled automatic transmission to deliver a total of 219 horsepower. It’s the same system found in the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid, which happens to ride on the exact same platform and wheelbase as the Venza. Toyota claims a combined city/highway fuel economy figure of 39 mpg. All-wheel drive is included, which feeds 100% of engine power to the front wheels in normal driving conditions, but can quickly shift 80% of that power to the rear wheels as needed.
Starting at $32,470 before adding on the $1,175 destination and delivery charges, the 2021 Toyota Venza LE comes standard with the brand’s TSS 2.0 advanced safety suite, which includes autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian detection and daytime cyclist detection, full-speed dynamic cruise control, lane departure warning and lane keep assist, automatic high beams, lane tracing assist and road sign assist. Blind spot monitoring and rear cross traffic alert are also thrown in for good measure.
The Venza LE also offers a six-speaker infotainment system with an eight-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, Amazon Alexa compatibility as well as a three-month trial of SiriusXM radio. A power tailgate, an eight-way power driver’s seat and 18-inch wheels complete the package.
The 2021 Toyota Venza XLE is priced from $36,000 and includes front and rear park sonar with autonomous braking, automated parking, a seven-inch digital driver instrument panel screen, heated front seats, a proximity key and 19-inch alloys. A nine-speaker JBL Premium sound system, a 12.3-inch infotainment screen with navigation and Softex leatherette upholstery are optional.
The range-topping Venza Limited starts at $39,800 and rounds up all of the XLE’s features, in addition to 10-inch head-up display, ventilated front seats and a 360-degree camera system, while a fixed panoramic roof is available for an extra $1,400.
In comparison with the 2021 Toyota Venza, the 2020 RAV4 Hybrid’s price ranges from $28,350 to $39,420 in the United States, while the 2020 Toyota Highlander Hybrid ranges from $38,200 to $50,200. Pricing for the Canadian market has not yet been announced.
