You’ll see some vehicles on the roads of Stanleytown, Danville, Rocky Mount, and Greensboro that are clearly there to fill a gap in the automaker’s lineup between smaller and larger siblings. The 2024 Toyota Venza is a compact crossover SUV that occupies a place in the Toyota lineup between smaller and larger models and bridges a potential gap between the mainstream brand and the company’s luxury arm.
The 2024 Toyota Venza is a highly desirable compact crossover SUV that will appeal to shoppers who might need help to choose between the value for money of a mainstream model and the extra quality, desirability, and extra cost of a luxury alternative. The lineup starts with the entry-level Venza LE and then goes to the XLE, the stylish Nightshade Edition, and the top-of-the-line Limited. The exterior styling is sleek, confident, and sophisticated, offering something different to the smaller Toyota crossover with which it shares a platform.
It is challenging to do something different with SUVs without scaring the horses. Still, the 2024 Toyota Venza employs a powertrain that’s as contemporary as the vehicle’s exterior styling and very appropriate for the current climate. All four versions of the 2024 Venza are hybrids, and all-wheel drive is also standard across the lineup. The hybrid system pairs a 2.5-liter inline-four gas engine with no fewer than three electric motors. The combined output of the hybrid powertrain is 219 horsepower and 163 lb.-ft. Of torque, which gets to all four wheels through a continuously variable transmission (CVT).
Despite the Venza leaning towards the larger side of the compact crossover segment, the hybrid powertrain delivers some impressive fuel economy. The EPA-estimated ratings for the Venza are an excellent 40 mpg in the city, 37 mpg on the highway, and 39 mpg combined.
The interior of the 2024 Toyota Venza can fool you into thinking your sitting in something a little more premium and luxurious than you may have been expecting. The quality of materials and the style of the cabin are top-notch, and your passengers will surely appreciate the generous 37.8 inches of legroom they’ll find in the second row. All models now come with standard automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitors, active lane control, adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams, a rear-seat reminder, and plenty more.
Many shoppers will be more than happy with the list of standard features they’ll find with the base LE version of the 2024 Toyota Venza. However, most shoppers will likely want the impressive 12.3-inch touchscreen, which means opting for the XLE or higher. The XLE looks like excellent value with that large touchscreen, 19-inch alloy wheels, wireless device charging, and keyless entry, and the Nightshade Edition only costs a little more if you like the idea of that blacked-out look.
The 2024 Toyota Venza is a highly desirable compact crossover SUV for a discerning audience.
