Toyota Venza Hybrid 2022 User Guide

The Toyota Venza is a midsize crossover SUV that was reintroduced for the 2021 model year. It’s worth noting that as of my knowledge cutoff in September 2021, there was no information available regarding a 2022 model year for the Toyota Venza. Therefore, I don’t have specific details about the 2022 Toyota Venza Hybrid. However, I can provide you with information about the previous model, the 2021 Toyota Venza Hybrid. The 2021 Venza Hybrid featured a hybrid powertrain, making it a fuel-efficient option in the midsize crossover segment. The 2021 Venza Hybrid utilized a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine combined with three electric motors, resulting in a total system output of 219 horsepower. It employed a continuously variable transmission (CVT) for smooth and efficient power delivery. The Venza Hybrid also offered an Electronic On-Demand All-Wheel Drive system for enhanced traction and control.

In terms of design, the Venza featured sleek and modern styling, with a comfortable and well-equipped interior. It offered seating for up to five passengers and incorporated several tech and safety features. These included an infotainment system with a touchscreen display, smartphone integration (such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto), a comprehensive suite of driver-assistance features, and available amenities like a panoramic sunroof, heated and ventilated seats, and a premium audio system. While I don’t have specific information about the 2022 Toyota Venza Hybrid, it’s possible that Toyota may introduce updates or changes for that model year. For the most accurate and up-to-date information, I recommend contacting a Toyota dealership or visiting the official Toyota website to learn about the features and specifications of the 2022 Toyota Venza Hybrid when it becomes available.

Event data recorder

This vehicle is equipped with an event data recorder (EDR). The main purpose of an EDR is to record, in certain crashes or near crash-like situations, such as an airbag deployment or hitting a road obstacle, data that will assist in understanding how a vehicle’s systems performed. The EDR is designed to record data related to vehicle dynamics and safety systems for a short period of time, typically 30 seconds or less.
The EDR in this vehicle is designed to record such data as:

  • How various systems in your vehicle were operating;
  • Whether or not the driver and passenger safety belts were buckled/fastened;
  • How far (if at all) the driver was depressing the accelerator and/or brake pedal; and,
  • How fast the vehicle was traveling.

These data can help provide a better understanding of the circumstances in which crashes and injuries occur.
NOTE: EDR data are recorded by your vehicle only if a non-trivial crash situation occurs; no data are recorded by the EDR under normal driving conditions and no personal data (e.g., name, gender, age, and crash location) are recorded. However, other parties, such as law enforcement, could combine the EDR data with the type of personally identifying data routinely acquired during a crash investigation.
To read data recorded by an EDR, special equipment is required, and access to the vehicle or the EDR is needed. In addition to the vehicle manufacturer, other parties, such as law enforcement, that have the special equipment, can read the information if they have access to the vehicle or the EDR.

Disclosure of the EDR data
Toyota will not disclose the data recorded in an EDR to a third party except when:

  • An agreement from the vehicle’s owner (or the lessee for a leased vehicle) is obtained
  • In response to an official request by the police, a court of law or a government agency
  • For use by Toyota in a lawsuit
    However, if necessary, Toyota may:
  • Use the data for research on vehicle safety performance
  • Disclose the data to a third party for research purposes without disclosing information about the specific vehicle or vehicle owner
