40 in the city. 37 on the highway. 39 combined.
These statistics are eye-catching. Especially when researching potential purchases in the SUV and crossover segments.
The possibility for attaining anywhere close to 40 miles per gallon has probably put 2021 Toyota Venza in the running and near the top of any “my next vehicle” list.
For me, this is definitely true.
I have been driving my new 2021 Venza Limited for just a few weeks now. Funny thing – I actually evaluated a similar 2021 Venza Limited (but with the StarGaze Fixed Panoramic Roof) for a week just before I got mine. I have already fallen in love.
2021 Toyota Venza Review
I will be giving accounts from new owners and their fuel efficiency shortly. But first my impressions of Toyota Venza.
This car is quite comfortable. The first thing you may enjoy is the seats. These are probably the most comfortable and cozy seats I have ever encountered. Good neck, back and lumbar support. Plus, I have made good use of my heated and cooled front seats already.
Heated steering wheel is “handier” than I expected. Never thought I would use this feature, but it is nice.
I have read reviews from other sources about some road or wind or tire noise. I just do not feel this is a problem. Call me crazy.
For me, the car is relatively quiet, and I just do not notice these as much.
Other new owner accounts describe Venza Hybrid (and its really cool features) just as I do. The best vehicle they have ever owned. I thought I would miss my 2018 Camry more, but Venza has already replaced it in my heart.
2021 Venza MPG
The best way to find out how a vehicle drives in the real world is by asking the people who drive them.
This is one reason I always look at movie audience reviews versus movie critics. Movie critics seem to look for flaws in a movie and point out every single one. People like me write about the entertainment value. That is what I want.
Same thing goes for 2021 Toyota Venza.
Time to see how new owners are doing at the pump.
Robert commented. “I love the looks, the ride and the mileage (38.7 mpg in mixed city/highway).”
“So far, I’ve been impressed with an avg. of 38 MPG and that’s driving with a lead foot.” Said George.

Breanne is happy with her new purchase. “I got the XLE a month ago. I love it. I average 37 mpg.”
Al is seeing a wide range of results. “30mpg was the lowest before refilling and 50.5mpg is highest on gas refill. But do not top off. 44 was highest for miles per gallon driving in San Francisco city streets.”
Melanie is seeing less than others. “I am only getting low to mid 30s for mpg so far. Live in Colorado so it’s colder and I do have a lead foot lol.”
Another owner, Michael, commented that he achieved 51.5mpg on a recent trip with an ECO score of 81 out of 100.

“I have mine on ECO mode and am getting around 41 mpg.” Commented Angel.
Interesting feedback. Very interesting.
Time for your thoughts on 2021 Venza
The trick with gas mileage results is that so much about the final figure you see depends on a great many factors.
Weather conditions, temperature, tire pressure, weight you have inside your car, how fast you accelerate, your highway cruising speed, and how much you coast can all affect that all-important mpg number.
I admit I have more of a lead foot than others. I need to use some of my own advice and look at the factors I just wrote about. I am getting in the low 30’s for mpg. Up to 36mpg if I really try.
But I know I can do better. I have all these personal accounts that give me hope for gain.
Do you own a 2021 Venza, and if so, what is your experience with fuel? Do you have any tips that you have used to get optimal gas mileage?
I will use your suggestions for future stories, so I appreciate your feedback.
Thanks for reading everyone. See you next story when I tell you the most difficult Toyota to get these days.
