The Venza crossover returned to the Toyota lineup for 2021 — now offered exclusively as a hybrid with standard all-wheel drive. Production of the original Venza began in 2015, and the 2021 model introduced a new front-end look to the Toyota lineup with sleek headlights that flow from the upper grille into the sculpted hood. The Venza is powered exclusively by a new-generation Toyota Hybrid System that teams a high-efficiency 2.5-liter gas engine with three electric motors for a total output rated at 219 horsepower. Three driving modes are offered: Normal, Eco and Sport. An EV mode allows electric-only driving over short distances. Electronic on-demand all-wheel drive uses a separate rear-mounted electric motor to deliver power to the rear wheels as conditions warrant.
