To return the name of Venza to the international market Toyota used one of the most simple ways: actually, the new crossover is a variation on the recently introduced new Harrier for sale in Japan only.
But the Venza, which ceased to flirt with the types of bodies should sooner or later occupy the position of a global model. While the crossover announced for the US market, where it will be positioned as a kind of transitional link between the RAV4 and Highlander, but there’s no doubt that Toyota will retain this disposition for other countries.
As Harrier and RAV4, and a number of modern models, the Toyota Venza is built on one of the variations of modern modular platform TNGA. On dimensions the novelty was slightly less than the Venza, which is sent to the archive in 2017, but was a little larger than the RAV4 – 4 740 mm 4 600 mm with the same wheelbase of 2 690 mm. But the main difference of a novelty on the North American market will be, first, the power plant, and second, the nuances of complete sets.
Toyota Venza is presented only as a hybrid (although the Harrier has a traditional ice). At this stage for the crossover proposed uncontested power plant, consisting of a 2.5-litre atmosfernika and three electric motors: they help the gasoline engine, and are responsible for the rotation of the rear wheels. This scheme allowed the company to implement not only full drive, but the system of effective distribution of torque. On the rear axle may account for up to 80% of the total thrust of the power plant.
She develops 222 horsepower and, according to forecasts by Toyota, the novelty will be able to do 5.9 litres of fuel per 100 km, and thus the ability to charge on-Board batteries from outside is not provided, but implanted smart recovery system, able to consider the nuances of daily routes of the user.
As for the list of on-Board equipment, the new Venza claims the title of most well-stocked of Toyota in the United States. She inherited, among other things, a panoramic roof with electrochromic glass, whose transparency can be adjusted, JBL sound system 1,200 watts (the most powerful in the line), 12.3-inch monitor on the center console and 10-inch projection display, particularly an advanced climate control from Lexus models and the like.
