2021 Toyota Venza At Courvelle Toyota - Lafayette, LA

Toyota furthers its leadership in hybrid technology with an all-new 2021 Venza. This premium crossover is comfortable, stylish and luxurious and comes with a standard hybrid powertrain.

Exclusively hybrid

With the offering of the first Prius 20 years ago, Toyota became a world leader in hybrid vehicles. With the introduction of the 2021 Venza, Toyota increases its hybrid offerings to ten. Unlike other SUVs and crossovers on the market, the Venza was designed exclusively as a hybrid. The Venza comes with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder combustion engine and three electric motors, one of which charges the battery. The continuously variable automatic transmission connects to the front wheels and a motor in the back powers the rear wheels when all-wheel drive engages and extra traction is needed. This pairing delivers 219 horsepower and an estimated combined 39 mpg.*

Responsive drive

The Venza is designed to optimize fuel efficiency in a couple of ways. First, you can select the best drive mode for your needs. Choose between Normal, Eco and Sport modes to get the most from the battery and fuel pairing. Normal is the perfect setting for everyday urban driving, while Eco gives you the highest mpg and most fuel-efficient performance. Sport mode provides a fun and responsive driving experience. The Venza also has an EV mode that allows you to drive short distances entirely on battery power. The hybrid powertrain makes for a more comfortable ride by controlling torque and suppressing pitch.

Exceptional comfort

Between a well-designed interior and a superior damping system, the Venza delivers an exceptionally smooth, quiet, and comfortable ride. The Venza comes with an 8-way power driver's seat and a 4-way seat for the front passenger. Ventilation is standard in the front seats and heating is available. The Venza seats five with plenty of head and legroom for tall friends. You have 28.7 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row and 54.9 cubic feet with the seats folded down, plus a hands-free back liftgate to help you load and unload quickly and easily. Two sets of Toyota's award-winning and easy-to-use LATCH child-seat connectors are located in the rear outboard seats with an anchor in the middle seat. One of the best things about the 2021 Toyota Venza is the quality of the ride. The suspension system absorbs the bumps and divots along the road to give you a smooth drive and sound damping technology throughout the vehicle, including acoustic glass in the windshield and a silencer pad in the floor.

Well appointed

There are three trim levels to choose from with the Venza: LE, XLE, and Limited.

Venza LE

The LE is amazingly well-appointed and includes:

  • Push-button ignition and keyless entry
  • Power-adjustable driver's seat
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control
  • Wireless smartphone charging and four USB ports
  • 8-inch touch-screen display
  • 4.2 multi-information display
  • Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™ and Amazon Alexa compatibility
  • Six-speaker sound system

  • Larger 12.3-inch touch screen with navigation
  • Nine-speaker JBL® audio system
  • Front and rear parking sensors.

Venza Limited

The first two Venza trims are so packed with goodies that there isn't much to add to the Limited level, but the best options at this level are a head-up display and a new twist on a panoramic roof. The roof comes with glass that goes from transparent to frosted at the press of a button. In frosted mode, the glass reduces the glare from sunlight, but allows diffused light into the cabin. The available 10-inch color head-up display means you won't have to take your eyes off of the road. Important information, such as speed, driver assists and hybrid readings, is projected on the windshield at eye level.

Safety standard

All 2021 Toyota vehicles come with standard driver-assistance technologies to keep you alert and protect you and your passengers on the road. These driver assists include:

  • Adaptive cruise control that keeps a set speed and distance from the car in front of you
  • Lane centering assist that adjusts steering to keep the vehicle in the lane
  • Forward collision mitigation with pedestrian and bicyclist detection, which warn of a possible collision and can apply the brakes
  • Lane departure alert
  • Automatic high beams
  • Road sign assist
  • Blind spot monitoring
  • Front and rear parking assistance with automatic braking (XLE and Limited only)

Entertaining ride

You and your family will enjoy the variety of infotainment technology that makes any drive a joy. The premium audio system is controlled through an 8-inch touch-screen in the LE or a 12.3-inch touchscreen, which is optional on the XLE and standard on the Limited. Control of the audio system can be switched between the driver and the front seat passenger. The audio system offers AM/FM radio, Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, Amazon Alexa and a 3-month trial subscription to SiriusXM® satellite radio. Navigation is included on the XLE and Limited trims. All of this is channeled through a finely-tuned 6-speaker system, or 9-speaker setup by JBL®, to give you great sound for music, podcasts, audiobooks and more. The Venza also offers a digital rearview mirror that allows you to see behind the vehicle even if there is luggage in the way - and as a bonus, it reduces the glare from headlights behind you. Finally, a backup camera displays a grid with the projected path to keep you on track when backing into a tight spot.

Combining exceptional efficiency, room for the whole family, lots of standard safety and convenience features, and many creature comforts, the 2021 Toyota Venza is one of the most premium SUVs in the Toyota lineup. Visit Courvelle Toyota in Opelousas, Louisana, for a closer look.
