Although it has been recently speculated that Toyota might end the production of its Venza model, the rumors haven’t been quite true since the new Venza is coming back to the market as a redesigned and improved 2019 model. The fans can expect some serious visual changes as well as those under the hood.

When it comes to exterior of the 2019 Toyota Venza, we must say that the fans shouldn’t hope for any revolutionary changes in terms of styling. Instead, the new Venza should keep that familiar body design of its predecessor. However, one of the changes that could happen includes the use of lightweight materials such as aluminum and carbon fiber in its chassis construction. That way, the carmaker would save some weight and improve the acceleration, efficiency and overall performance. The Venza has also been known for its unusual body design. This model cannot be simply described as a typical crossover. In fact, it represents a combination of a SUV and a wagon. Toyota will use its well-known GRYLIA system here so the front end will look sharper and more aerodynamic. You will also notice a distinctive silver-coated grille, its large LED headlights and a massive front bumper. There will be lots of chrome details on this model. While the front end seems sharper, the rear part of this vehicle will get more rounded appearance. In the back end, the fans will notice its large LED taillights and a roof spoiler. The new Venza should stand on standard 19-inch wheels.
The interior of the 2019 Toyota Venza will reveal a spacious and modern cabin. Namely, the new Venza will be able to accommodate up to five adults on its cozy and adjustable seats. The carmaker will also use some high-quality materials inside as well as leather in higher trim levels. This model will get an upgraded stylish dashboard as well as a 6.1-inch infotainment touch-screen display in the center console. It will provide features such as satellite navigation, dual-zone automatic climate control, satellite radio, USB and Bluetooth. Some of the advanced safety systems and driver assist features will include seven airbags, a rearview camera, parking sensors and others.
When we talk about the engine that the 2019 Toyota Venza will offer under its hood, two choices have been discussed so far. The first option might come with a base 2.7-liter inline-four that delivers 181 horsepower and 182 pound-feet of torque. The other version includes a 3.5-liter V6 that produces 268 horsepower and 246 pound-feet of torque. Each of these engines will be mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and you will be able to choose between a front-wheel and a four-wheel drive.
