All Siennas use Toyota's V6 to power the front wheels with a four-speed automatic transmission. All are the same size. An optional power sliding door on the right is available for LE and XLE models ($ 395).
Of the three trim levels, the CE is standard: Air conditioning, cruise control, cassette player, as well as power windows, locks and mirrors are all optional. The CE is readily available as a four-door model - there's simply one moving door, on the best side. (The rear hatch counts as a door.).

With its clean, conventional looks, the Sienna is a classic minivan with refined touches of sport-utility styling. The long, sloping nose is unmistakably minivan, yet square lines somewhere else-- especially when checked out from the rear-- recall a sport-utility lorry. Where lots of minivans present vast moves of metal, the Sienna has a reasonably also proportion of glass to steel, one more SUV attribute.
Sienna utilizes an extended variation of the Camry system. It is built on the same Georgetown, Kentucky, assembly line as the Camry. Basing the Sienna on the Camry results in great roadway good manners. It likewise makes it more economical to make and also construct-- a great deal for carmaker as well as customer. These financial savings enable Toyota to bring the price of the Sienna closer to the standard for the class.
Being in the driveway, the Sienna looks neat and also portable. Its size (193 inches) places it about midway in between the brief as well as lengthy Chrysler minivans. It's 3 inches narrower than the Chrysler minivans and also 1 inch lower in elevation.
In spite of its moderate length, the inside of the Sienna is roomy. Three-row seats is standard, and the back cargo location is an accommodating 18 inches deep from hatch available to seatback. The flip-and-fold seats make it straightforward to increase the cargo area as needed.
If you should remove the seats totally, they can be lifted out individually. The seats can be removed with the seat backs folded flat, which makes them easier to handle. The seat locks are magnificently performed; they release quickly and also are simple to re-install.
Entering and from the Sienna is very easy. Double gliding doors guarantee travelers enter as well as out in a hurry and also lessen running around to the far side of the car to order a child. Child-safety door locks beat the within door handles on all moving doors. At the full-open position, an interlock stopper avoids gliding doors from moving closed when parked on a downhill grade. A half-door stopper stops the left-side gliding door from fully opening up when the gas lid is opened to stop the door from reaching the fueling area.
The optional right-side power moving door can be opened by pushing switches on the dashboard, keyless remote or B-pillar, or by pulling on the inside or outdoors latches. During the summer, it behaves to be able to begin the airing out process while you're coming close to the Sienna with a load of groceries. A button beside the steering wheel enables the vehicle driver to bypass these switches to make sure that the power moving door can not be opened. The power moving door attribute functions without having the key in the ignition. The power moving door can be opened up like a typical door when the power switch is turned off. The power gliding door detects when a barrier is in its course and immediately pulls back.
Step-in elevation is a lot lower than that of an SUV, making entering and out a lot easier for shorter people, older people as well as everyone else. Once in, the chauffeur enjoys an expansive sight of the road, though the seatsing placement is not as high as in several sport-utility lorries. Visibility is exceptional in all instructions, thanks to all the glass. Huge mirrors (power on LE and XLE models) offer a good view to the rear. Instruments huge, intense as well as simple to review.
All sitting settings are really comfortable. Our Sienna was outfitted in the optional leather upholstery, which is eye-catching, lavish as well as simple to clean. Low side bolstering on the seats makes insinuating and from them less complicated, yet they lack assistance to keep you pleasantly secured in hostile side-to-side maneuvers. Though the back 2 rows of seats do not offer as much area as the bigger Honda Odyssey, Dodge Grand Caravan or Chrysler Community & Country, they provide adequate room to pleasantly seat 6 individuals. With a little collaboration among the guests, fore and aft modifications for the 2nd row (and, certainly, the front row) allow optimum room for individuals of varying elevations.
Storage is close at hand without restraining the generous pass-through in between the pole positions that makes it simple to move from the front to the back without venturing out. Little internet attached to the sides of the pole positions are great for storing toll tickets, sunglasses or purses. Fold-down cupholders beside the storage space internet secure beverages yet flip up out of the way when not in use; they do not appear like they would certainly hold high drinks well, but securely held my Venti-sized paper cappuccino cup.
The second row can be geared up with either captain's chairs or a two-place bench seat. The seatbacks fold to give a flat surface area for food and also video games and cupholders. Built into the doors are rounded owners ideal for one-liter bottles. Cupholders, as much as 14 of them, are all over. Either captain's chairs or a three-place bench can be bought for the third row; the captain's chairs are preferable if you only call for seating for six individuals.
Environment controls are placed high on the center control panel forever accessibility. Radio controls are placed relatively low, however acc.
The fact that the Sienna is based upon the Camry is a good thing. The Camry's 3.0-liter V6 engine, four-speed digital transmission, steering system, transmission, as well as front suspension are sector standouts for improvement in the affordable mid-size sedan market. So the Sienna take advantage of a great deal of proven modern technology.
The result is a minivan with a flight like is available. A huge, tall box will never ever ride and manage in addition to a low, sleek sedan, however the Sienna is respectable. The guiding isn't really as sharp, the transient response isn't really as crisp as some of the various other minivans. It leans in the edges, and appears a little bit mushy in short-term maneuvers. But on the whole, it deals with well as well as its soft suspension offsets any taking care of shortages with its smooth trip top quality and also solid stability on the freeway.
Toyota's V6 is simple to live with. It's smooth, trusted, as well as cost-effective. It generates 194 horse power, significantly greater than either the Chrysler or Ford 3.0-liter V6s. Toyota's V6 is reliable with EPA fuel economy scores of 18/24 mpg city/highway. Chrysler as well as Ford each offer 3.8-liter V6 engines with a lot more torque, however the Toyota V6 provided a lot of power. Passing various other cars on hills is very easy: Punch it and also the Sienna takes off, quickly placing the slower car away. On turnpikes as well as Interstates in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland, the Sienna used exceptional high-speed security. Power was never a problem. Toyota suggests costs gas.
The four-speed transmission is excellent. It constantly picks the right gear, developing a team with the V6. Shifts are so smooth when travelling that they are virtually seamless; under tough acceleration the transmission supplies favorable changes at the redline. Anti-lock brakes come basic on the Sienna, which uses smooth quiting performance.
