Intuitive Performance

Venza’s advanced hybrid powertrain and specially tuned suspension provide smooth acceleration, balanced turns, and a refined drive every time you get behind the wheel. Four distinct drive modes will match your mood. Use SPORT Mode for sharp acceleration, ECO Mode for maximum fuel efficiency, and NORMAL Mode for a blend of fuel economy and performance. EV Mode uses the hybrid battery only.

All-Hybrid Powertrain

The 2.5-liter inline-four gasoline engine with three electric motors—one on the rear axle that gives the Venza standard all-wheel-drive capability—produces 219-hp for exciting acceleration. The on-board 3.7 amp hour lithium-ion battery is charged through normal driving processes, so there is no need to plug in your Venza. With a class-leading EPA-estimated 40 mpg city and 37 mpg highway, the scenic route is always a good choice. Enjoy the extra miles!

Electronic On-Demand All-Wheel Drive

The standard, sophisticated all-wheel drive system automatically sends power to the rear wheels, giving the Venza sure-footed traction when the road surface is slippery.
