After a five-year hiatus, Toyota is resurrecting the Venza name to compete in the rapidly growing midsize crossover segment. The 2021 Toyota Venza will go toe to toe with newer entries in the class, including the Honda Passport and Chevrolet Blazer, as well as stalwarts such as the Ford Edge and Subaru Outback. The segment is defined by its abundance of passenger and cargo room, and the Venza appears to fit the mold. But it's also rocking a hybrid powertrain — potentially giving it an edge in this traditionally thirsty segment.
