This Venza is one of my favorite SUV's, has a perfect combination sporty looks with some classy lines!

Even the interior, looks so well made it's amazing it's a Toyota.
Looks and feels like a Lexus GNA-K product inside,

I guess COVID indeed. Toyota's press materials stated "Coming summer 2020."

That matte black really accentuates the body lines. Venza is a stunner!

ISF like tailpipes yet this is a hybrid? Body effects are great, just get rid of those fake tips.

Toyota claims the Venza's battery is newly-developed Li-ion. But for some reason it's still only 3.7 Ah for a 0.96 kWh capacity. So apparently Toyota now has four different Li-ion cells for HVs:
3.6Ah (Prius/Corolla hybrid/C-HR hybrid/Crown hybrid/Lexus 500h, 2016)
3.7Ah (Harrier/Venza hybrid, 2020)
4.0Ah (Camry, 2018)
4.2Ah (Yaris hybrid, 2019)

Why do they have four different battery specs?! That just sounds like a logistics nightmare. One would think Toyota likes to standardize everything? And why does a new design have less capacity than older design?

And BTW these tiny capacities are fine because the C-rate is ridiculously high. They drain quickly but charge quickly too.
