The track for the sliding back doors is totally concealed, so the rear doors look like they belong on a sedan or crossover SUV. The back windows are formed in a conical trapezoid and also likely internal like a sedan, once again negating the standard boxy minivan look.
The back has been designed with a reduced, wide bumper and a roof looter that conceals the rear wiper, for a more powerful, cleaner look. LED tail and also quit lamps are used, which brighten faster and eat much less power.
On the whole, the outside looks cleaner as well as sleeker, and it is. Aerodynamic job, including underbody covers to help take care of air movement, has decreased the coefficient of drag to 0.306.
There are several differences from version to model. Each has a distinctive grille, varying from the sporty mesh grille on the SE to the chrome four-slot setup on the Limited.

The Sienna SE obtains special styling cues. The front has a more aggressive appearance.

The 2011 Sienna inside is definitely fashionable. From the motorist and traveler viewpoint, the cabin makes use of streaming lines as well as rounded controls to achieve a feeling of unified, incorporated style. Plainly visible at the base of the facility stack is a form, something like a tadpole, that tapers side to side toward the traveler, to produce the feeling that there is even more room to share. To our eye, it's contemporary and also efficient, preventing the center pile from resembling a stack of squared-off rectangular boxes. Instead, the design suggests common room and control areas, in a freshly modern environment.
Design aside, the facility stack contains the normal controls, with the message center on top, the stereo simply below, the climate control system below that, as well as storage and also comfort attributes, such as cupholders as well as 12-volt plugs, at the lowest degree. The shifter is located on the dashboard, closest to the chauffeur, freeing facility console space for storage.

Leather-trimmed and heated seats are conventional on the XLE as well as Limited.
Second-row comfort was obviously a layout priority. The second-row seats are placed on long sliders, 25.6 inches in size, so they can be relocated very far ahead or very far back, depending on the means the indoor should be set up for individuals or cargo. With the seats at adjusted to the limit, a walk-in isle is developed, huge sufficient for a grown-up to walk through in order to help a child or an older passenger. With the 2nd row seats readjusted right onward, walk-in access to the third row ends up being feasible.
Eight-passenger versions use an arrangement that splits seats in a 40/20/40 percentage. That makes the second-row center seat small about both outside seats, most likely only in fact beneficial for smaller sized individuals. When not being used, the facility seat can be gotten rid of and also stored in a specially-designed compartment in the back, transforming the second row to captain's chairs with area between. The typical chairs are fairly comfortable, yet there is likewise an optional Lounge Seats feature available with Restricted that equips the second-row captain's chairs with extensive footrests.

Adaptability was one more layout top priority, together with the capability to reconfigure the inside for various blends of individuals and freight. To convert from bring people to carrying cargo, the Sienna's third-row seats conveniently fold flat as well as, when the second-row seats are folded far forward, 117 cubic feet of cargo location becomes available.

An extra-large display for the amusement system is available for the Limited models that's big sufficient to split into 2 screens in case rear-seat residents desire home entertainment from two different resources. That allows for playing a computer game on fifty percent of the screen, as well as showing a movie on the other. Wireless earphones are offered. The display is abnormally big, huge enough for third-row guests to see.
