The lights have projector lights and also halogen high beam of lights integrated in a compact, slim layout.
From the side, the 2011 Sienna looks much sleeker total, as well as less boxy in look than formerly. The track for the gliding back doors is entirely hidden, so the back doors resemble they belong on a car or crossover SUV. The back home windows are shaped in a conical trapezoid and inclined internal like a sedan, again negating the typical blocky minivan appearance.
The rear has been made with a low, broad bumper and also a roofing system spoiler that conceals the rear wiper, for a stronger, cleaner look. LED tail and stop lamps are utilized, which brighten more quickly and take in much less power.
Overall, the exterior looks cleaner and sleeker, and it is. Aerodynamic work, consisting of underbody covers to help manage air movement, has actually decreased the coefficient of drag to 0.306.
There are numerous differences from version to version. Each has an unique grille, varying from the stylish mesh grille on the SE to the chrome four-slot setup on the Limited. Join 17-, 18-, and 19-inch wheels are utilized relying on the version and also choices. SE, XLE as well as Limited versions have actually integrated front haze lamps, and Limited has HID headlamps as an alternative. The SE has dark chrome accents around the lights and smoked front lights covers.
The Sienna SE obtains unique designing hints. The front has an extra hostile appearance. Side skirting visually lowers the lorry and smoked fronts lights and taillights make a distinctive declaration. Wind resistant forming hugs the typical 19-inch alloy wheels. The SE sits reduced, on a sport-tuned suspension.
The 2011 Sienna interior is distinctly modernistic. From the motorist as well as passenger point of view, the cabin makes use of streaming lines and round controls to attain a sense of merged, incorporated layout. Plainly visible at the base of the center pile is a shape, something like a tadpole, that tapers side to side towards the traveler, to develop the sensation that there is even more area to share. To our eye, it's contemporary and also reliable, protecting against the facility pile from resembling a pile of squared-off rectangle-shaped boxes. Rather, the layout suggests shared area and control areas, in a freshly contemporary ambience.
Design aside, the facility pile has the common controls, with the message center at the top, the audio system just below, the climate control system below that, and also storage space and also benefit features, such as cupholders and 12-volt plugs, at the lowest level. The shifter is located on the dash, closest to the vehicle driver, freeing center console space for storage.
There are 3 tool styles, but the standard analog system utilizes bright blue numbering with red needles.

Second-row convenience was obviously 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 ahead or very far back, depending on the means the indoor needs to be configured for people or cargo. With the seats at adjusted to the limit, a walk-in isle is created, large sufficient for an adult to walk through to help a youngster or an older passenger. With the second row seats adjusted all the way forward, walk-in access to the third row ends up being feasible.
Eight-passenger models make use of a setup that splits seats in a 40/20/40 percentage. That makes the second-row center seat little relative to both outdoors seats, probably only really beneficial for smaller sized people. When not in use, the center seat can be gotten rid of as well as stowed in a specially-designed area in the back, transforming the 2nd row to captain's chairs with room in between. The conventional chairs are rather comfortable, however there is also an optional Lounge Seating feature offered with Limited that gears up the second-row captain's chairs with extensive footrests.

Third-row seats are split 60/40, and also fold level with one touch. The third-row hip point is now 2 inches additionally back, which equates into leg-room for the third row residents, and the seats recline a little bit also.
Flexibility was an additional style concern, together with the ability to reconfigure the interior for various mixes of people and also cargo. To convert from lugging people to lugging freight, the Sienna's third-row seats easily fold level as well as, when the second-row seats are folded far forward, 117 cubic feet of freight location becomes available. With the second-row seats got rid of entirely, cargo area increases to 150 cubic feet. Even with simply the third-row seats folded up level, there is 87 cubic feet of stowage behind the second row.
An oversized screen for the amusement system is readily available for the Minimal designs that's huge sufficient to split right into two displays in case rear-seat owners desire amusement from 2 various sources. That enables playing a computer game on fifty percent of the screen, as well as revealing a movie on the various other. Wireless earphones are readily available. The screen is unusually large, huge sufficient for third-row passengers to see.
