2021 Toyota Venza To Start At $38,490 in Canada

The Venza offers class-exclusive hybrid propulsion—for now.

  • The 2021 Toyota Venza starts at $38,490 in Canada before freight and delivery charges.

  • A hybrid powertrain with a combined 219 horsepower is standard, as is AWD.

  • The range-topping, fully loaded Venza Limited is listed at $47,690.

Pricing for the Canadian-spec 2021 Toyota Venza has just been released, as the hybrid midsize crossover will start at under just over $40K when freight and delivery charges are included.

The second-generation Venza, which has about nothing in common with the first-gen model, is equipped as standard with a hybrid powertrain that consists of a 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine, three electric motors and an electronically controlled continuously variable automatic transmission, feeding a combined 219 horsepower to all four wheels. Combined city/highway fuel economy is rated at 6.1 L/100 km.

The AWD system spins only the front wheels in normal driving conditions, but when the roads get slippery or during acceleration or cornering, up to 80 percent available power can be quickly reassigned to the rear wheels.

The 2021 Toyota Venza competes against the Chevrolet Blazer, the Ford Edge, the Hyundai Santa Fe, the Kia Sorento, the Honda Passport, the Nissan Murano, the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport in the two-row, midsize crossover category. Right now, it’s the only one that offers a fuel-sipping hybrid powertrain, although the next-generation Kia Sorento will soon get a PHEV variant.

The base Venza LE retails from $38,490 before freight charges and includes 18-inch alloy wheels, a power liftgate, a power-adjustable steering column, wireless phone charging, heated front seats, an eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat and an infotainment with eight-inch touchscreen as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration.

Next up, the $44,490 2021 Toyota Venza XLE adds 19-inch rims, a 1,200-watt JBL audio system with nine speakers, a 12.3-inch infotainment touchscreen, hands-free tailgate operation, a heated steering wheel, ventilated front seats, Softex simulated leather upholstery and park sonar. Meanwhile, the range-topping Venza Limited is listed at $47,690 and offers a panoramic roof, 10-inch head-up display, a digital rearview mirror, rain-sensing wipers and a 360-degree camera system, among other things.

The 2021 Toyota Venza is now arriving in dealerships across Canada. A couple of weeks ago, Toyota announced pricing for the Venza in the United States, which ranges from $33,645 to $42,375 USD, freight and delivery charges included.
