A Look at New 2021 Toyota Models

Every year we see new vehicles with new designs and features from all the major car manufacturers around the world. It’s exciting to see what every company has in store for us, and we can hardly wait to check out what the big brands have brought to the table. The best way to see the new models coming out is to go down to your local dealership when their new stock arrives. For Toyotas, your local Toyota dealer will have updated information on when to expect new vehicles and what they’re going to look like.

Toyota is easily one of the most popular car manufacturers in the world and constantly competes with other big companies to sell the largest quantity of vehicles each year. With a wide variety of vehicles to choose from across different styles, it’s no wonder that people love Toyotas. Additionally, you also get great reliability and safety with any Toyota vehicle, which has become their hallmark over the years. So let’s take a look at the new 2021 Toyota models and see what we think about them.

2021 Toyota Camry

The Camry is a mainstay in the Toyota family of sedans, and it doesn’t look to be going anywhere anytime soon. However, that doesn’t mean it won’t get some new updates every year. The new 2021 Toyota Camry is one of the first Toyota models to debut the new Safety Sense 2.5+, which is Toyota’s newest suite of advanced safety features. This is a big bonus and we’re always happy to see safety-focused upgrades, especially on your everyday sedans.

The 2021 Camry also gets a new floating multimedia display (7-inch or 9-inch) and a new trim level with the XSE Hybrid. This is particularly bold because the XSE trim is known for its sport and luxury features, but now you will also get the fuel-efficient hybrid engine. These changes should help keep the Camry as popular as ever.

2021 Toyota Corolla

Much like the larger Camry, the Toyota Corolla is a common and very popular model within Toyota’s lineup of sedans. Each year, the Corolla builds upon its impressive resume by adding new features and increased quality. For 2021, the Toyota Corolla includes updated safety features like additional airbags and increased availability of the Blind Spot Monitor with Rear-Cross Traffic Alert feature. All 2021 Corolla models will also come with Android Auto compatibility.

The new 2021 Corolla Apex special edition model is built to suit drivers looking for a sporty, quick, and aggressively-styled car. The suspension is sport-tuned, the interior is outfitted with sport seats, and the exterior features a black-and-bronze body kit. This new trim makes for a great affordable fun car.

2021 Toyota Sienna

Minivans aren’t known for being especially stylish, but Toyota has looked to change that perspective with its new 2021 Toyota Sienna. You can see the body style looks similar to some of Toyota’s other vehicles, giving the Sienna a modern and updated look. Perhaps paramount among minivan owners’ concerns is the safety of their passengers, most likely kids in the second- and third-row seating areas. So, important updates like available all-wheel drive and standard Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 are sure to be welcome.

Over the years, minivans have evolved to become your own mobile entertainment center with plenty of gadgets and features to keep your passengers occupied. There are now usually options for multiple displays, USB ports throughout the cabin, and multizone climate control. But the 2021 Sienna goes even further with an available onboard vacuum and refrigerator. So, it’s easier than ever to clean up life’s little messes and keep the drinks or treats nice and cold.

2021 Toyota Venza

Toyota already has an award-winning lineup of crossovers and SUVs, but there’s still room for some new additions. With the 2021 Toyota Venza crossover, you get a standard hybrid powertrain, standard Toyota Safety Sense 2.0, and standard AWD. The LE trim is expected to have at least a 40 mpg combined fuel economy, which allows for plenty of driving without stopping for gas.

Additional available features include a Star Gaze fixed panoramic glass roof, heated and ventilated front seats, a 12.3-inch touchscreen display, and a 10-inch head-up display. Every Venza trim also comes with SiriusXM compatibility. Overall, the 2021 Toyota Venza brings the number of available Toyota hybrid vehicles to an outstanding 10. We’ll see how the new crossover plays out, but it seems like it could be a huge hit since Toyota vehicles are hugely popular.

2021 Toyota Avalon AWD

All-wheel drive has become commonplace across many different brands and models of vehicles, but it’s not quite universal yet. With the release of the 2021 Toyota Avalon, we see our first ever Avalon with all-wheel drive capabilities. This new option is available on Avalon XLE and Limited trims, which should be a huge selling point for Avalon enthusiasts.

As Toyota’s flagship sedan, the Avalon is meant to provide a safe, reliable, and comfortable option for any potential driver and their passengers. As manufacturers have responded to market needs for more SUVs, Toyota has also continued to improve its sedans, including the Avalon. With all-wheel drive, the Avalon now bridges the gap between sedans and SUVs by increasing safety when driving in inclement and slippery conditions.

New Toyota Mirai

The all-new 2021 Toyota Mirai is a bold proposal, even from a company as cutting-edge as Toyota. It might be surprising that Toyota would decide to release a new midsize sedan when they already have a full lineup of sedans, but once you dig into what the Mirai really is, this decision makes a lot more sense. The Toyota Mirai is a hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle. It’s a bit of a mouthful, but it means this is a car with zero emissions (other than water) that’s powered by a combination of hydrogen and oxygen. It also only takes about five minutes to refuel, which blows some current electric vehicles’ charge times out of the water.

The Mirai is billed as the future of vehicles, especially hydrogen-powered vehicles. It’s supposed to offer a clean solution to the carbon-emitting cars we’re used to, plus it still comes equipped with all the features we want and need in a modern vehicle. You can fill up at the available Mirai Hydrogen Stations, and you will even get your first three years or $15,000 worth of fuel for free. The EPA-estimated driving range is 312 miles, so you will not have to worry about not reaching a Hydrogen Station when you’re driving around.

A Bright Future

Overall, the future of Toyota is as bright as its past and its present. The Toyota company has really grown to show what it’s capable of, and there are surprises for us at every turn with the vehicles and technology it’s producing. We look forward to seeing all of these new vehicles in action, especially the Mirai, and can’t wait to see what else is coming our way in the near future. As always, check out your local Toyota dealer for the latest Toyota vehicles being offered so you can see new features and vehicles for yourself. Reading about new updates is a great way to learn about Toyota vehicles, but actually getting in one and seeing how features work and how vehicles drive is the best way to experience them.
