Star Gaze fixed panoramic glass roof
The new Venza offers drivers an available Star Gaze fixed panoramic glass roof. The Star Gaze technology is a revolutionary idea that has not been seen in past Toyota car models. It allows drivers to switch from transparent to frosted modes within one second. When the glass is in frosted mode, Star Gaze brightens up the interior while simultaneously reducing direct sunlight, giving the cabin an even more open, airy, and inviting feeling.
2.5-litre inline-four hybrid powertrain
The Venza is Toyota’s newest hybrid, designed to provide drivers with the best in fuel economy and passenger comfort. Utilizing a high-efficiency 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine combined with three electric motors in a highly compact system, the Venza offers 219 total system horsepower and achieves an awesome 6.1 L/100 km combined fuel consumption. While the Toyota Venza is similar in many ways to the RAV4, it’s the new lithium-ion powertrain that sets this SUV apart, thanks to improvements in performance, size, and weight.
Packed with safety features
In addition to having a platform that’s equipped with the latest technology to protect you from collisions, the 2021 Venza can also come standard with Toyota Safety Sense (TSS 2.0), a comprehensive suite of active safety systems that includes: Pre-Collision System with Daytime/Low-Light Vehicle and Pedestrian Detection, plus Daytime Bicycle Detection, Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Automatic High Beams, Lane Tracing Assist.
Standard All-Wheel Drive
The 2021 Venza is equipped with the Toyota’s Electronic On-Demand AWD, which is perfect for our Canadian winters. It uses a rear-mounted electric motor to power the rear wheels when needed instead of a transfer case and driveshaft and is designed to take advantage of the benefits of the Venza’s hybrid powertrain.
Luxurious design and cabin
The all-new 2021 Venza is the perfect vehicle for any driver who wants a smooth, comfortable ride. The new model has improved acceleration, handling, and reduced noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH). It is made to provide a premium experience, and it does so by keeping unwanted noise out of the cabin. The emphasis here is on how Toyota engineers created an enjoyable atmosphere that allows passengers to enjoy a premium experience.
The all-new, redesigned, 2021 Venza is an underrated model of the Toyota brand, but it’s worth a try if you’re looking for a luxurious design and fuel efficiency.
