The new 2011 Toyota Sienna doesn't look specifically like a minivan, since a number of timeless minivan visual hints have actually been removed. It has a broader stance, with wider flared shoulders, and also a much more engaging, modern front confront with advanced, very angular headlamps. The lights have projector lights and also halogen high beam of lights combined in a compact, slim layout.
From the side, the 2011 Sienna looks much sleeker total, and much less blocky in appearance compared to previously. The track for the moving back doors is completely concealed, so the rear doors appear like they belong on a car or crossover SUV. The rear windows are formed in a conical trapezoid and likely internal like a sedan, once again contradicting the basic boxy minivan appearance.
The back has been developed with a low, vast bumper as well as a roofing looter that hides the rear wiper, for a stronger, cleaner appearance. LED tail and also stop lights are used, which light up quicker and also eat less power.
Generally, the exterior looks cleaner as well as sleeker, and also it is. Wind resistant job, consisting of underbody covers to help take care of airflow, has reduced the coefficient of drag to 0.306.
There are plenty of differences from version to model. Each has an unique grille, ranging from the sporty mesh grille on the SE to the chrome four-slot plan on the Limited. Unite 17-, 18-, as well as 19-inch wheels are made use of depending upon the model as well as choices. SE, XLE and also Limited versions have actually integrated front fog lamps, as well as Limited has actually CONCEALED headlamps as an option. The SE has dark chrome accents around the lights as well as smoked headlight covers.
The Sienna SE gets special designing signs. The front has a much more hostile look. Side skirting aesthetically reduces the car and also smoked headlights and also taillights make a distinctive statement. Aerodynamic shaping hugs the conventional 19-inch alloy wheels. The SE sits lower, on a sport-tuned suspension.
The 2011 Sienna inside is noticeably high-style. From the driver and passenger perspective, the cabin uses flowing lines as well as round controls to attain a sense of unified, incorporated design. Plainly noticeable at the base of the center stack is a form, something like a tadpole, that tapers side to side toward the traveler, to create the sensation that there is more area to share. To our eye, it's modern-day as well as reliable, avoiding the facility pile from looking like a stack of squared-off rectangle-shaped boxes. Rather, the layout recommends common room and control locations, in a newly modern environment.
Layout aside, the facility stack contains the normal controls, with the message center on top, the stereo just below, the climate control system below that, as well as storage space and also convenience functions, 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 center console space for storage.
There are 3 tool designs, however the basic analog system uses bright blue numbering with red needles. In all 3 styles, a huge speedometer as well as tach are combined with fuel as well as temperature determines. The transmission array and odometer are shown on the LCD in the facility of the meter, and also an ECO-drive light has actually been contributed to suggest cost-effective driving. The dash materials and also cloth upholstery look and feel great sufficient, although the top pieces of the control panel, while wonderfully textured, become difficult plastic.
The steering wheel, padded and contoured, has buttons for stereo control on the left as well as Bluetooth phone control left wing. The wheel tilts and telescopes.
The pole positions are passenger-car comfortable. They are six-way adjustable on the base Sienna version, and power eight-way flexible on all other designs, with memory offered for the driver on Restricted versions. The front guest seats are four-way, with power adjustability available on the Limited. The Sienna seats now take a trip about an inch farther, forward and back, compared to the previous generation, as well as have longer, wider cushions as well as adjustable armrests. Leather-trimmed as well as heated seats are conventional on the XLE and also Limited.
Second-row comfort was clearly a design concern. The second-row seats are mounted on very long sliders, 25.6 inches in size, so they can be moved extremely far forward or very far back, relying on the means the indoor should be configured for people or freight. With the seats at adapted to the limit, a walk-in island is created, big enough for a grown-up to walk through to help a kid or an older guest. With the second row seats changed right forward, walk-in access to the third row comes to be possible.
Eight-passenger versions use a setup that divides seating in a 40/20/40 proportion. That makes the second-row center seat small about both outside seats, possibly only really valuable for smaller sized individuals. When not in use, the facility seat can be eliminated as well as stowed in a specially-designed area in the back, converting the 2nd row to captain's chairs with area between. The standard chairs are quite comfy, but there is additionally an optional Lounge Seating attribute available with Limited that gears up the second-row captain's chairs with prolonged footrests.
On particular versions, the back fifty percent of the center console can be expanded rearward about a foot right into the guest location. With the console moved rearward, second-row passengers have actually a lot more quickly reached cupholders and also one more helpful storage option.
Third-row seats are split 60/40, and fold level with one touch. The third-row hip point is now 2 inches further back, which equates right into leg-room for the 3rd row occupants, as well as the seats recline a bit as well.
Adaptability was another design top priority, in addition to the capacity to reconfigure the interior for various blends of individuals and freight. To transform from lugging individuals to bring freight, the Sienna's third-row seats conveniently fold flat and, when the second-row seats are folded up much ahead, 117 cubic feet of cargo area becomes available. With the second-row seats removed completely, cargo area expands to 150 cubic feet. Despite having simply the third-row seats folded up level, there is 87 cubic feet of stowage behind the second row.
A large screen for the home entertainment system is offered for the Restricted designs that's huge enough to divide into 2 screens in case rear-seat passengers want enjoyment from two various resources. That enables playing a video game on half of the display, and also showing a film on the other. Wireless headphones are readily available. The display is unusually big, huge sufficient for third-row guests to see.
Tri-zone automatic environment control is basic on Sienna, LE as well as SE models, as is a cabin air filter that prevents pollen and dirt from entering the automobile.
The navigating system, a voice-activated, touch-screen system, is available on LE and also Limited models. It sustains an integrated backup cam with 2 sights, as well as the 10-speaker JBL stereo, plus Bluetooth-capable sound gadgets. The system allows the user to control the resource tool making use of the car's steering wheel controls to play, pause and seek.
Toyota Security Link consists of automatic accident alert, an emergency assistance button with 24-hour roadside aid and also the capability to locate a swiped lorry by GPS. It comes requirement on all models, with a 1 year test registration.
A sonar car parking help system, with 4 ultrasonic sensors, is offered on Sienna XLE models. The system seems gradually as a things comes to be closer to the car. A similar system, with six sensors, is standard on Limited.
