Toyota offers a 3-year, 36,000-mile basic warranty, and a 5-year, 60,000-mile powertrain warranty on its lineup.

The 2021 Toyota Venza is above average compared to all vehicles.

Comparison to all vehicles.  This plot shows RSC safety scores on the horizontal axis vs. the number of vehicles with each safety score (depicted by bar height and percentages at the bottom). Colors reflect vehicle safety, ranging from red (not that safe) to green (safer). For reference, a score of 0 implies a 0.15% chance of driver death (13% chance of driver injury) over 15 years, and a score of 100 reflects a 0.016% chance (1.4% chance of driver injury). The 2021 Toyota Venza has a score of 85, implying a 0.035% chance of driver death (3.1% chance of injury).

We estimate that the 2021 Toyota Venza has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0347% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 3.9683%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0347% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 3.9683% chance of being injured.

Compared to the average vehicle, the 2021 Toyota Venza is 25% less likely to result in a fatal accident. Compared to other sedans, hatchbacks, and wagons, the 2021 Toyota Venza is 31% less likely to result in a fatal accident.

Active safety features with Toyota's Safety Sense greatly enhance occupant safety by reducing the likelihood of a crash. Active safety systems that are standard on the Toyota Venza include: Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD), Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist (LDA w/SA), and Blind Spot Monitor.

Some safety technologies get a lot of press, but another may also improve safety. Standard side mirror turn signals can help when you don't see a vehicle in your blind spot, by alerting them to your intention to switch lanes, which allows the other driver to avoid an accident with you.

But it is about as safe as many comparable models.
