If we can rely on the latest reports, the Japanese carmaker is about to take another try with this crossover/station wagon. Some sources suggest it could arrive already in the next year, like the 2020 Toyota Venza. The original model wasn’t quite a bestseller. Therefore, it was discontinued a couple of years ago. Practically, both Toyota and Honda failed to match the famous Subaru Outback, which is not just the most popular models, but also the initiator of this class. We expect that Toyota will learn from its mistakes and that the new version will be much more successful. So far, we don’t know any details about the new model, but that doesn’t mean we can’t presume many of them.
2020 Toyota Venza Redesign
We count on a lot of improvements compared to the original version of this crossover. The 2020 Toyota Venza redesign is about to bring a full portion of design solutions. In terms of mechanics, we expect no surprises. The new model will ride on the company’s new TNGA platform. Considering its size, most of the parts will be shared with the current generation of famous Camry. Moreover, the two models should be similar in terms of aesthetics, though we expect that new 2020 Toyota Venza won’t be just a station wagon Camry with higher clearance. Some quite reliable sources are suggesting that the new Venza will feature a little bit different approach.
It looks that we won’t see best from two, but rather three worlds. Besides mixing crossover and wagon design characteristics, the new model will also add a bit of a minivan flavor, in order to provide more passenger-oriented ride quality.
Of course, the new layout will affect the interior design as well. With more height, we count on more headroom, as well as on a more spacious cargo area. Moreover, this also indicates a higher driving position, closer to what a typical minivan offer. With such a mix, Toyota hopes it can attract buyers that would like to combine three different types of vehicles, but that won’t be all. This carmaker has so many trumps in its pocket, and one of them should be a long list of standard features. This particularly refers to safety features, which became pretty much a standard thing with Toyota. Count on all those driver aids that are part of the famous Safety Sense packages. Also, count on a long list of tech goodies, including the latest infotainment system, with smartphone integration goodies including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
2020 Toyota Venza Powertrain
When it comes to the powertrain, expect once again a lot of things in common with the famous mid-size sedan. Still, we doubt that the base four-cylinder will be in the offer. Instead of that, Toyota could easily come up with a turbo-four engine in base variants. Still, the real deal would be a well-known 3.5-liter V6 engine, with a max output around 300 horsepower. Both engines would come in a pair with a new 8-speed automatic transmission.
Is there a chance to see a hybrid version?
Yes, definitely! This is probably the most anticipated version of the new crossover. The new Toyota Venza 2020 will be a family car. So, things like efficiency and economy play an important role in such cars. Therefore, we should see the same four-cylinder-based hybrid system that powers the current-generation Camry, which may be the most powerful system around, but definitely guarantees some of the best mpg ratings in the automotive industry.
2020 Toyota Venza Release Date and Price
We believe that 2020 Toyota Venza could be scheduled all ready for the next year. Still, keep in mind that these are just rumors and that we are still waiting to hear some words from the officials. If it arrives, the base version would probably go around 30.000 dollars.
