The Venza is one of those models that tried to compete with the famous Subaru Outback. As you probably know, the Outback established a completely new segment on the car market, as a type of vehicle that is known as crossover/wagon these days. Unfortunately, the Venza wasn’t that successful. Therefore, the production ended a couple of years ago. North American models were discontinued in 2015, but the model carried on for another few years on some markets. All in all, it is out of production for some time and latest reports suggest it could come back as 2020 Toyota Venza.
Allegedly, this model is about to come back. We haven’t heard any words from the officials, so most reports about the new models are rumors and speculations. However, we believe that the new 2020 Toyota Venza would have a lot of potentials, considering that the demand for crossovers is getting bigger and bigger.
2020 Toyota Venza Redesign
Considering that there haven’t been way too long since the discontinuation, we could say this would more be a redesign than a launch of an all-new model. Therefore, we count on familiar overall design characteristics. The new 2020 Toyota Venza is about to continue with a crossover/wagon body style. In practice, this would mean a typical station wagon body style. We are pretty sure that the new model will sport a new TNGA platform, which has been introduced a couple of years ago and underprints pretty much every new model that comes from this Japanese manufacturer.
Considering the size, the new 2020 Toyota Venza will probably share most of its parts with the famous Camry sedan. In practice, that would mean similar layout, in terms of both exterior and interior design. Still, keep in mind that some reports suggest slight changes in terms of the overall design. According to these reports, the new model will come with a bit of minivan design solutions, which could mean a little bit higher body and similar things. However, these are just rumors, so take them with a big dose of a reserve.
2020 Toyota Venza Styling
In terms of the styling, we have no doubt that the new 2020 Toyota Venza will be fitted to the company’s latest design language. The front end should sport the same styling as the new Camry. On the other side, the rest of the body will come in a typical station wagon manner. Imagine this vehicle as station wagon Camry, but also with all those design solutions typical for crossovers. This means a higher ground clearance, bigger wheels, lots of plastics around wheels, underbody protection and much more.
In case we see a bit of a minivan flavor, count on a higher body, which will bring some practical advantages, especially on the inside. However, such design would also have a bad effect on aerodynamics and overall performances.
2020 Toyota Venza Interior
Once again, count on a lot of influence from the new Camry. Most likely, these two models will feature the same wheelbase. Therefore, count on a similar amount of legroom. Of course, a station wagon would provide far more cargo space, In practice, that would mean plenty of volume for sure, especially if we consider that even stylish sedan body style provides lots of it.
In terms of the interior quality, the current Camry is pretty amazing and we expect the same from the 2020 Toyota Venza. That would mean an attractive dashboard design, full of hi-quality materials and attractive lines.
On the other side, if the 2020 Toyota Venza is about to come with a bit of minivan design philosophy, we can count on more headroom and more cargo area. Also, we can count on some design solutions that are typical for minivans, such as higher driving positions. More details should be known soon.
2020 Toyota Venza Engine
When it comes to the powertrain, we can expect to see multiple engine options in the offer. Most likely, we will see the same lineup as in the famous sedan. This means that a 2.5-liter atmospheric unit would be reserved for base versions. It features a max output of around 200 horsepower. Of course, a large 3.5-liter V6 unit should be in the offer as well. This unit features a max output of around 300 horsepower.
The 2020 Toyota Venza should come in a hybrid version as well. Count on a familiar system that powers the Camry. It delivers around 205 horsepower but more importantly, an amazing fuel economy.
2020 Toyota Venza Release Date and Price
The 2020 Toyota Venza is just a rumor at the moment. There are still no words from the officials, so you should take this arrival with a dose of a reserve. If it ever arrives, we presume that the base price would go somewhere around 30.000 dollars. At this point, Subaru Outback seems like the only potential rival, though we can also find reports about the new Honda Crosstour.
