Toyota did not spend money on modernizing the old version of the Venza model, modifying its suspension or changing the body. The designers of the Japanese company took the easiest path and simply renamed one of their models to Toyota Venza 2021.

The donor for the «new» crossover is the Harrier, a mid-size urban SUV that almost completely borrows the technical part of the design from the mega-popular RAV4, and which was recently updated.

Overview

For 7 years of production, this model did not gain much popularity, and the reason for this was the not entirely successful «format» of the car. Toyota Venza was offered in the form of a cross-wagon — something similar is offered by the Subaru Outback, that is, the body of such a car is a large wagon, which, nevertheless, does not «reach» the SUV.

The Japanese offered such a car to the North American market spoiled by large SUVs and … realized their mistake! The project, which was closed in 2015, has been re-launched, only this time the 2021 Toyota Venza will be a full-fledged crossover.

In the 2021 Toyota Venza model year, absolutely all parts of the Harrier were transferred, with the exception of the nameplate with the model name.

Thus, we are dealing with a formal novelty based on the GA-K platform, which has a chassis with independent suspensions and a mid-size body: with a wheelbase of 2690 mm. they are 4740 * 1855 * 1660 mm.

However, the Japanese would not be themselves if they did not try to uniqueize their model in some way. In addition to an extensive array of state-of-the-art rideable electronics, this vehicle will be considered a hybrid baseline.

Body

The exterior of the Toyota Venza crossover is similar to that of the Harrier SUV, and the characteristic heredity of the latter makes both of these models similar to the current RAV4.

In general, the design of the car is close to the style of premium Lexus, therefore it stands out with an aggressive dynamic profile. At the same time, the appearance of this car unmistakably guesses the corporate design style, which is not surprising, because this is one of the fundamental «chips» of the Japanese manufacturer.

Salon

The interior is also nothing new: it’s the same Harrier with two-tone trim and a protruding center display. The size of the latter can be 8.0 or 12.3 inches, depending on the configuration.

The same goes for the digital instrument cluster (4.2 or 7.0 ”). The only thing that makes the interior unique is the transparent roof, which consists of electrochromic modules that help to make it opaque at the touch of a button.

Technical stuffing

In Toyota Venza 2021, you can count as many as three engines: the main naturally aspirated 2.5-liter internal combustion engine, an electric motor working in close conjunction with it, plus another electric power plant, which is located on the rear axle and, if necessary, makes the crossover all-wheel drive.

This trio is complemented by an electromechanical variator, and the entire power unit in the complex is subject to a separate control unit, which is responsible, among other things, for switching driving modes.

Three of them involve the use of an internal combustion engine, the fourth provides clean electric traction. Another element of the system is a self-rechargeable lithium-ion battery.

The equipment of the Toyota Venza 2021 meets the highest standards, in addition, the Japanese have successfully implemented their most advanced developments from the category of «smart electronics» on this model.

One of the most interesting features is the early activation of the energy recovery mode on those sections of the road where the car will slow down.

The electronics will be able to determine such route points with the help of a navigator and a memory card, which will record the «behavior» of a car that has passed these sections earlier.

When will it be released in Russia?

Toyota Venza was officially sold in Russia from 2013 to 2016, but it is not known whether the completely transformed model will return to our market.

The plans of the Japanese are to offer the crossover to the North American market again, where the first copies of the new 2021 Toyota Venza body will arrive in the summer.

Closer to autumn, the novelty is going to be presented to the Chinese, which may indicate attempts to make the model global.

In this case, the chances of its arrival in Russia increase, and the main obstacle to this may be a potentially low demand for a hybrid due to its expected high cost.
