The brand-new Toyota Sienna was styled in California, created in Michigan, and also constructed in Indiana. Before designing the brand-new Sienna, primary engineer Yuji Yokoya drove the previous Sienna throughout The United States And Canada, with Mexico, Canada, and also the U.S., via every state, every province, some 53,000 miles. A brief, mild Japanese man, Yokoya-san was usually accompanied by program manager John Jula, a high, big American. An odd pair, they could not have been a lot more different in stature, look, and character. However they shared a seriousness of objective, a dedication to developing the very best minivan ever created, and a solid sense of humor. Collaborating with designers and also engineers from around the world, they ferreted every weak point and shortcoming of the old (1998-2003) Sienna and also resolved it with this new Sienna.
The greatest imperfection of the old Sienna was its absence of indoor roominess. Yokoya saw families buried under travel luggage. He also established it should be quieter so families could more conveniently speak on long drives. He wanted far better seats. And also he wished to enhance security at broadband, particularly in cross winds and also on crowned roadways.
The all-new 2004 Toyota Sienna is considerably larger, broader, taller than the previous-generation model. Its wheelbase is 5 inches longer as well as the track is 4 inches wider compared to last year's design. Stretching 200 inches over a 119-inch wheelbase, the new Sienna coincides size as the biggest minivans on the marketplace: the Honda Odyssey, Dodge Grand Campers, Chrysler Community & Country, Ford Windstar, and the long-wheelbase versions of the Chevrolet Endeavor and Pontiac Montana.
Whatever on the Sienna allows as well as strong: Large headlamps and large taillamps light up the evening and also provide the Sienna visibility in the dark. Black pillars, as opposed to body-colored pillars, make the new Sienna appearance also larger than its considerable measurements. A large windscreen, big wipers, as well as wiper-mounted washing machine nozzles designed for snow belt improve motorist exposure.
The Sienna provides a smooth look by minivan standards, enhanced by its steeply raked windshield as well as the black columns. The slot for the gliding doors is cleverly concealed, using a cleaner appearance. Though you shouldn't expect eying at the auto clean, the brand-new Sienna is an eye-catching car.
The big measurements of the Sienna make for a roomy inside. There's lots of area for travelers and freight. Fold the second- and also third-row seats flat as well as the Sienna can lug 4x8 sheets of plywood.
Entering and out of the Sienna is very easy. Its step-in elevation is about 6 inches lower than that of the Sequoia SUV, a benefit when dressed up or taking care of toddlers or nearly whenever you enter or out. The power gliding doors are smooth and silent and relocate faster compared to in the past, valuable for impatient passengers. Hands-on moving doors and also manual back hatch on the LE and CE designs have a high quality feel also.
The back side windows lower partially, though not listed below the center of gravity of a kid, as well as attribute anti-pinch defense made to reduce possibility of injuries to little hands as well as fingers. A nice feature is the availability of sunshades for the second- and also third-row seats, which filters strong sunlight better compared to privacy glass.
Up front the vehicle driver sits before a smooth, natural dashboard. Toyota states it spent lavishly on the seats, which are made to supply convenience for a variety of physique over extended periods of time. The guiding wheel tilts and also telescopes. Huge mirrors and also great deals of glass give the vehicle driver an excellent view.
Cut products boost as you go up the line, however are of high quality also on the base CE version. The CE has a wonderful fabric inside, though the door inserts appear. LE showcases better towel, nicer door inserts, and other trim. XLE provides also much better fabric, while the Limited model features leather.
There are great deals of cubbies for storage space. Two handwear cover boxes are supplied and a huge facility console holds 12 CDs. Armrest compartments could each hold six CDs as well as there's a spot for a little mobile phone simply to the right of the shifter. The dry cleansing hooks look big sufficient to accomodate a load of dry cleaning. In back are hooks for holding grocery bags.

The 2nd row of seats is roomy. There's comparably good legroom and also it really feels spacious as well as ventilated with good area next to the guest's head. That goes over considered that the Sienna is fitted with side-curtain type airbags; they do not intrude into rear clearance as long as other layouts. When not needed, the second-row seats topple onward, providing a friendly seat base to cargo or family pets. The second-row seats are very easy to remove as well as re-install, though the captain's chairs weigh 49 extra pounds each.
Seven- as well as eight-passenger designs vary in the configuation of the 2nd row. Seven-passenger models include second-row captains chairs.

The seat needs to be removed and also re-installed in one of two locations, however, it does not move on the right track like the seats in the Mazda MPV, which is a more costly layout. Toyota states it located that people normally don't relocate the second-row seats once they've put them in the preferred position. Relocating them close together makes entering the back row a little less complicated. Moving them apart makes them much more comforable for adults. A neat feature: the facility console can be gotten rid of from in between the pole positions as well as transferred in between the second-row seats. (Removing it leaves room for a bag in between the pole positions. Proprietors who desire a facility console in both places can purchase a 2nd facility console.).
Eight-passenger models make use of a bench seat for the 2nd row that could seat 3 tiny travelers. It's a three-way split/folding bench with a little middle seat that can be moved practically 13 inches better to the front, putting babies as well as young children in child seats within arm's reach. When not being made use of, the center seat converts into a big armrest.
Third-row seats supply rake change, which improves their convenience. The third row is split 60/40 for included flexibility whe.
