Family vehicles have evolved dramatically over the years and there is no greater proof of how far they have come than the 2016 Toyota Sienna. Gone are the days when families were forced to choose between style and durability, quality and space, or power and efficiency, as this amazing ride has it all – here we will take a brief look at some of its many highlights.
Power and efficiency
The Sienna is backed by a 3.5L 6 cylinder engine that churns out 266 horsepower, 245 lb/ft. of torque and has a towing capacity of 454kgs, so it is ready, willing and able to handle almost any mission. Its 6 speed electronically controlled transmission provides smoother shifting, better performance and improved fuel economy, while the Sienna’s Dual Variable Valve Timing system means you get more power from less fuel and therefore produce fewer harmful emissions. You will also save a small fortune at the pump, as it boasts combined efficiency ratings of 11.4L/100km (FWD) or 12.5L/100km (AWD).
Every inch of the new Sienna has been built for maximum comfort, from the ergonomically designed seating and multi-zone climate control system to the ample head, shoulder and leg room; in fact, 2nd row passengers enjoy just as much space as those sitting up front. The 60/40 split 3rd row seating folds flat with ease when you have more things than people to accommodate, high tech acoustics keep noise levels under control and there is even a fine-particulate filter to capture and remove dust and pollen from the air.
The Sienna goes to great lengths to make life easy for you and your passengers, starting with the Driver Easy Speak system that lets you communicate with 3rd row passengers without raising your voice. Enabled voice recognition technology means you can control more of your vehicle’s many features hands free, the ECO Driving Indicator provides real-time data relating to your ride’s performance and Bluetooth functionality is in full effect. Keyless entry also comes standard and illuminated entry provides a warm welcome every time you step inside.
The Sienna is one of the safest family rides on the road, as it features an Anti-Lock Brake System, Smart Stop Technology, Vehicle Stability Control, Traction Control, Electronic Brake Force Distribution and Brake Assist as well as an expansive suite of strategically positioned airbags. There are also warning lights for everything from low fuel and unbuckled seatbelts to falling tire pressure.
If you are looking to make your Sienna a little extra special there is no shortage of amazing upgrades to choose from. Your options include a power moon-roof, fog lamps, rain-sensing wipers, a 10 speaker JBL Audio system, heated steering wheel, acoustic glass, backup sensors, garage door opener and removable 2nd row lounge seating. Safety upgrades include a Blind Spot Monitor, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and an Anti-theft System and there are even two AWD models available, one of which offers Sport Tuned Suspension.
