2016 Toyota Venza Review And Release Date

There are quite a few MPVs on the market that look good and offer goof fuel economy but most of these aren’t really good outside paved roads. This is where the 2016 Toyota Venza comes into place. This car has the attributes of a medium sized SUV combined with those of an MPV, making for quite a refined and usable car wherever you need to go.

The new 2016 model is going to feature a brand new engine that was previously unavailable on this model as well as new interior equipment that will put it above most of the cars in its class. Price for this new model went slightly up when compared to the previous year model. If you want the 2016 Toyota Venza you will have to pay up to $29,000 for a base model and up to around $40,000 for a fully equipped one with the most powerful engine. The car will come in this form at the end of 2015 or the start of 2016.

There will be two power plants for this new model. A quite new 2.7 liter inline 4 that will only be available on the base model and only in both front wheel drive and all-wheel drive form. This will be able to provide up to 185 horsepower and as much as 187 lb-ft of torque, all with a total fuel consumption of around 20/26 MPG on ity/highway, which makes it one of the best in class models but still not the best.

The other available engine can be had either with front wheel drive or four wheel drive. This is a 3.5 liter V6 that was previously found on the older models. It is able to provide up to 270 horsepower and 245 lb-ft of torque which is not that much over the smaller engine but thanks to the higher torque this can move the car with its four wheel drive system with absolutely no hiccups. Both engines will be available only with a 6 speed automatic gearbox that is smooth in changing gear but quite slow when you really need it to go.

Changes

Its exterior will be quite similar to that of the current generation. The only changes will go to the rear bumper which will now receive a dual exhaust system for the brand new engine. The front bumper will also be revised in order to get a bigger departure angle without compromising the looks. This and the quite high ground clearance make for a really good car in all situations. We think that this is the last model and that one of the next versions will be delivered as a significantly upgraded and redesigned car.

The interior of the 2016 Toyota Venza on the other hand will be pretty similar to that of the current generation. You will still get amenities such as climate control and a satellite navigation system in a medium spec model while the top of the range will have a JBL audio system with a subwoofer as well as parking sensors all around the car and a rear view camera. It might not be as luxurious as many would like it to be but that is not the main goal of this car.

Release Date Of 2016 Toyota Venza

Already for a few years MPV market is diminishing and the sale results are not that good like it was the case with few previous years. Even car makers are fully aware of this they still deliver new models to the market and the 2016 Toyota Venza is one of the best that will come during the next year. Many drivers still need a lot of space in interior and possibility to transport five passengers in perfect comfort.
