The 2018 Sienna Receives some Very Nice Enhancements
The 2018 Toyota Sienna benefits from some serious updates even though it looks very similar to the 2017 model. If you’re looking for a new minivan, the 2018 model year will offer notable improvements over the 2017 model year. Here’s an overview of what you can expect from the new minivan.
Mostly the Same on the Outside
When looking at the Sienna from the outside you would almost swear that it’s the same vehicle as the 2017 model. That’s because besides for the new bumper with a larger grille and nose, none of the enhancements are visual ones. If you opt for the Sienna SE you’ll enjoy a laminated windshield. If you spring for the Limited model you’ll also get acoustic glass on both side windows up front for a quieter ride, but that’s it for exterior enhancements. The real changes come on the inside of the minivan.
A Serious Safety Upgrade
Sienna drivers can feel a whole lot safer while toting the kids around from school to soccer practice now that Toyota is making its whole safety lineup available as standard to every model of the Sienna. That means that you get things like adaptive cruise, steering assist, auto emergency brakes, lane-departure and auto high beams as standard. You won’t pay a dime for any of these enhancements, even though they will make the minivan much safer to drive around.
Another area where you’ll notice the Sienna is jumping ahead is in technology. The 2018 model will come equipped with a total of 5 USB ports, making it simple to keep all your mobile devices topped up while going down the road. It’s also going to come with a 4.2” infotainment display and the vehicle will come with Android streaming capabilities for the entertainment system as well. If you opt for the Limited version of the Sienna, you’ll also enjoy a surround camera that gives you an excellent view of your vehicle from different angles when backing up and navigating tight spaces.
Entune 3.0 is also going to come standard with each of the different trims in the Sienna. This gives you a nav system that connects through smartphone, and all the trims above the base model will come with 4G LTE and Wifi connectivity.
There’s a lot to love about the 2018 Toyota Sienna, and for tech enthusiasts it will likely be the best option out on the road for a few years. Whether you’re concerned about the safety of your family, your family relies heavily on mobile devices or you just want the enhanced media features without paying for them, the Sienna is worth a look.
