Did you ever think about crossover and MVP in one package? Well, Toyota designed a car that perfectly combines best characteristics of these two types of vehicles. This model is called Venza and it could be considered as a perfect family car. This mid-size crossover/MVP was originally launched in 2008. During these seven years of production, it made through several updates and one major, mid-cycle refresh. However, first-generation model is still under production and it is expected to be redesigned. New model will come as 2016 Toyota Venza and it is expected to come late this year.
2016 Toyota Venza redesign
The 2016 Toyota Venza will come completely redesigned. New model will come with plenty of novelties in all aspects. It will keep the same base characteristics, as a combination of crossover and MVP, but it will feature significant changes both in terms of visual appearance and mechanical part of the car. When it is about car’s look, we can say that the current design with swift curves and smooth edges is pretty much outdated. The 2016 Toyota Venza will come with new, more aggressive stance and it will feature straight lines, sharp edges, and masculine flair. New model will be adapted to the company’s new design language, so we will see a familiar front fascia, which characterizes new models of the company. The interior will be very practical, perfect for families. However, it will also feature excellent styling. The 2016 Venza will be full of high-tech systems. Some of notable features that will come as standard, will be climate control, satellite navigation, a rear view camera, parking sensors, large touch screen at the center of the dash, screens on the rear seats and many other.
2016 Toyota Venza engines
When it is about engines, 2016 Toyota Venza is expected to use same units as current model. Those are two engines in offer. The first one is a 2.7 liter inline-four engine, which is good enough for 182 hp and 182 lb-ft of torque. Other variant is a 3.5 V6 engine, which is good enough for 268 horsepower and 246 pound-feet of torque. Although units will remain the same, we expect improvements both in terms of power and fuel economy. Hybrid version is also expected.
