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.
Most people that are considering a minivan have at least thought about picking up the Toyota Sienna. Its’ one of the biggest names out in the minivan marketplace, and it is known for value. Well now the Sienna just got even better, and there’s an even longer line for the 2017 model year version of this powerful minivan than there was before.
The Sienna is known for being one of the most convenient and efficient minivans on wheels today, but it isn’t known for being one of the most powerful. All that is about to change with the addition of a more powerful engine into many of the 2017 model Siennas sold by Toyota. That’s because the 2017 Sienna is being equipped with a 3.5 liter V6 engine that produces a whopping 300 HP. By adding that powerhouse to the 3,500 lb. minivan, Toyota made it a whole lot lighter on its feet, and should have pushed it up near the top of the sector as well.
While the more powerful engine probably won’t appeal to owners that are looking for the highest efficiency levels overall, it is sure to appeal to drivers that want a bit more oomph out of their vehicles, or owners that want to be able to haul a bit more with that minivan. Minivans can be used to pull trailers around, and with this power increase the 2017 Sienna should be able to do an even better job at handling the task.
Best Transmission Yet
One of the major improvements that comes to the 2017 Toyota Sienna is the 8-speed automatic transmission. Toyota vehicles have long been criticized for having old-school transmissions with too-few gears. The older Sienna wasn’t quite as efficient or as smooth as the 2017 model, and part of that has to do with the transmission. This new and improved version should make the Sienna more enjoyable to drive around, and really add to its appeal overall for buyers that are looking for a top performer.
Not only is the Sienna now more powerful and smoother during acceleration, but it’s still the same highly reliable minivan that buyers have come to depend on. While some competitors might have a few more features, 0r a bit more utility in some areas, the Sienna is king when it comes to maintenance costs and continuing to travel down the road again and again. That’s why so many people opt for this minivan even when there are cheaper alternatives on the market. If you are looking for a minivan that is going to hold up over time. The Sienna is a good bet that is worth considering.
Overall the 2017 Sienna offers much of the same value and bonuses that it always did, but now it’s a more powerful, more efficient and smoother operating vehicle than ever before That says a lot about the vehicle and makes it a good solid pick for future minivan owners looking for one of the best options available.
When you hop into the 2017 Toyota Sienna, you’ll enjoy a whole slew of positive changes that you might not have been expecting. It’s more efficient, more flexible, and offers convenience features that you wouldn’t have found on older versions of the minivan. We’ll take a few minutes to delve into each of these improvements, to give you an idea of exactly why you should consider the latest Sienna offering from Toyota.
Overview of the 2017 Sienna
It’s still true that minivans aren’t very sexy, but that’s not really the point. The 2017 Sienna is a highly functional machine that does everything that larger families need it to. It drives comfortably and handles more like a car than a full-sized minivan. This vehicle comes with ample room for up to seven people to sit comfortably, and it has flexible seats that make carrying all your cargo a snap. Whether you’re taking a trip to the movies, heading over to the grocery store, or bringing your children camping, this minivan gives you the space and the features to get it all done comfortably.
Quicker and More Efficient
The latest Sienna is faster than before with improved acceleration, making those highway ramps just a bit more enjoyable than they already were. It’s also more fuel efficient, so you can take long-distance road trips and save some money along the way. Fuel economy figures are up to 19 MPG in the city and 27 on the highway. Pretty impressive figures for a minivan.
The Toyota Sienna makes hauling cargo around easier than ever before. The middle row seats slide forward and fold down to create enhanced storage space. The rear seats fold down and out of the way. This gives you ample room for storage without the need to remove the middle seats at all.
The Sienna also comes with a range of power features that make doing things like opening doors and adjusting seats simple and quick. The two slider doors open and close all on their own, making loading children in and letting them out easy. The lift gate at the rear of the van also opens automatically, which is another handy feature when carrying groceries or when your hands are full for another reason. Finally, the Sienna makes it easy to unlock doors. Simply hold the smart key up to any of the doors and it automatically unlocks for easy entry without having to push the button.
Overall the 2017 Toyota Sienna is a really capable vehicle. Sure it might not have the swagger that a sports car has, but it’s got all the utility that a family needs.
