The 2021 Toyota Venza hybrid employs RAV4’s TNGA-K platform. Moreover, the powertrain option on the crossover is very similar to the RAV4 hybrid. It comes powered by a 2.5-litre, four-cylinder engine that is paired with three electric motors. One of the three motors is placed on the rear axle, making the Venza an all-wheel drive product. This particular layout ensures more space in between the axles for the battery.
