With a dedication to its customers and their evolving needs, Toyota set out to deliver something exciting yet practical to Canadian drivers in 2021, and it hit the mark with the all-new Toyota Venza. This two-row midsize crossover is sandwiched between the more compact RAV4 and the 7-seater Highlander, offering more space than some of Toyota’s compact crossovers, but a more sleek and sophisticated package than the brand’s rugged off-roaders. Sure, the Venza will undoubtedly make a splash among BC drivers thanks to its versatility, elevated styling and fuel-efficient hybrid engine, but this cool new crossover has a few tricks up its sleeve that really make it shine in the 2021 Toyota lineup - and Castlegar Toyota is one of the only dealers in the Kootenays to currently carry this exciting new ride.
Toyota calls upon some of its most innovative technology to give drivers an entirely new in-car experience. One of Venza’s most impressive features is its unique Star Gaze fixed panoramic glass sunroof with frost control, which uses electrochromic technology to switch between transparent and frosted mode with the touch of a button. This technology has only ever been available on high-end luxury car brands (with high-end luxury price tags to match), but you can impress your friends for less thanks to Toyota’s commitment to affordable luxury. The journey continues with thoughtful features like ambient lighting, an intelligent-touch climate control system, sound-dampening technology and an 8-way power adjustable driver's seat. With a cabin this comfortable, you’ll be begging for excuses to jump back into the driver’s seat.
Speaking of tech, the new Venza stands out as one of the most futuristic vehicles in the Toyota lineup. Of course, Venza comes with standard fare like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto; but it’s also loaded with a host of unique features, including a large (4.2 to 7.0-inches, depending on the model you choose) colour multi-information display, wireless charging, a capacitive touch control panel, Toyota’s full suite of Connected Services, and a 10-inch head-up display that puts important on-the-go information right at eye level, allowing you to keep your eyes squarely on the road.
There are plenty of stand-out features that make the new Venza really dazzle among the competition. For starters, West Coast drivers will appreciate that both Toyota’s famous hybrid engine and all-wheel drive are both standard. Venza is powered by a 2.5-L engine plus 3 electric motors, helping reduce harmful emissions while still delivering spunky driving dynamics. As a midsize, rather than a compact, crossover, Venza also serves up some seriously generous cargo space. Whether your backseat passengers need the extra legroom, or you need to count on maximizing trunk space for suitcases or strollers, Venza has got you covered. To top it all off, this cool crossover comes with an array of accessories that allow you to fully customize your ride - simply chat with your Castlegar Toyota sales rep about the possibilities.
