It seems that the new Toyota Venza has been on its way to hit the market as a 2019 model, although it has been recently rumored that the Japanese carmaker could discontinue this vehicle. This family-sized crossover of unusual design is about to offer some minor changes and improvements in terms of design, but also under the hood.
As we have already mentioned in the intro, the 2019 Toyota Venza will definitely wear an unusual exterior design. Although seen as a crossover, the new Venza cannot be looked upon as a typical one. In fact, this model perfectly combines a SUV and a wagon style. Besides its unique body shape, the fans shouldn’t hope to notice any drastic changes or innovations in terms of exterior. Most of the features will remain familiar, with some minor refreshments and updates. Also, it has been said that the Japanese company will use aluminum, carbon fiber and other lightweight materials for its chassis in order to save some weight and boost the efficiency, acceleration and overall performance. Probably the most distinctive feature found on the new Venza includes its grille that has been the result of the so-called GRYLIA system. This system improves the aerodynamics of this vehicle that now seems much sharper and air-resistant. You will also notice a massive bumper and large headlights that will use the latest LED technology. While the front end seems sharper, we can say that the rear end has got more rounded appearance. It can be even described as sporty due to its roof spoiler and large LED taillights. This classy crossover SUV should stand on standard 19-inch wheels.
The interior of the 2019 Toyota Venza will show some significant improvements in terms of design, materials, technology and overall comfort. This model will provide spacious and modern cabin with comfortable and adjustable seats that will be able to accommodate up to five adult passengers. Leather and other high-quality materials can be expected in higher trim levels. The center console should offer a 6.1-inch touch-screen with the infotainment and entertainment system. You will find features such as satellite navigation, satellite radio, dual-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth connectivity and USB ports. The Venza will also be equipped with airbags, parking sensors, a rearview camera and other safety systems and driver assist features.
The base model of the 2019 Toyota Venza will use a 2.7-liter inline-four engine that should provide the output of 181 horsepower and 182 pound-feet of torque. The other and more powerful version is expected to come with a 3.5-liter V6 that hits 286 horsepower and 246 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission should be paired with both engines.
