If we can rely on rumors, it looks like the Japanese manufacturer is planning to bring back this crossover, despite the fact it hasn’t been too much success and despite the fact that it has been discontinued just a couple of years ago.
The current situation on the market indicates that this segment could live once again, and Toyota will be one of the first companies to introduce its crossover/wagon vehicle. It will be based on the current-generation Camry, which promises a lot, given the sedan’s excellent critics. Don’t be surprised if you see the 2022 Toyota Venza already in the next year.
- Spacious and practical cabin
- Plenty of cargo space
- Full load of safety features
- Super-efficient hybrid option
- Still waits for the confirmation
When it comes to base design characteristics, we have no doubt that the new 2022 Toyota Venza will be quite close to its predecessor. In practice, this means an interesting combination of crossover and station wagon layouts, something that Subaru Outback successfully practices for decades.
The Venza, as well as the Honda Crosstour, weren’t that lucky. In terms of mechanics, the 2022 Toyota Venza should be heavily based on the new Camry. This means it will ride on a new TNGA platform, which is characterized by excellent efficiency. The famous sedan should also serve as a basis in terms of aesthetics.
On the inside, we expect that the 2022 Toyota Venza will resemble Camry pretty closely. This particularly refers to the dashboard layout. So, count on a dash that combines a lot of smooth lines and hi-quality, soft-touch materials.
This also means a lot of latest tech features, especially in terms of driver aids and other advanced safety features. In terms of the overall shape, we count on the Camry’s generosity in terms of the legroom, while the Venza will also add plenty of additional cargo space.
As we already mentioned, the 2022 Toyota Venza will ride on the company’s new TNGA platform. That means a lot of options in terms of engines. Still, we doubt that the new crossover will start its offer with a four-cylinder engine. Most likely, base models will feature a familiar 3.5-liter V6, which is good for about 300 horsepower.
Of course, we count on a hybrid option as well. The Camry comes with a super efficient system that delivers 208 horsepower and, more importantly, spectacular fuel economy. In the case of 2022 Toyota Venza, we could see a slight power boost, but a class-leading fuel economy as well.
2020 Toyota Venza Release Date and Price
Unfortunately, the 2022 Toyota Venza is still a rumor. So, take all these details with a dose of a reserve. Still, many reports estimate the base price and suggest it would go around $30,000.
