New 2015 Toyota Sienna will definitely be a perfect choice for you if you seek for a minivan able to move with a bunch of people or much cargo, for instance, if you go for outing with friends or family.
Minivan is offered in the following trim levels: basic L, SE, XLE, LE, and Limited. Hybrid model is not available. XLE and XLE can be configured with a place for seven or eight people, while Limited and basic L can only have seven-passenger configuration. SE, in its turn, can have seating places for eight persons only. SE is the sportiest model.
This year Sienna gets a light redesign in interior and exterior, and new updates and advances. The body structure looks more aerodynamic, which influences only the appearance, not the efficiency. Ribbed design and updated radiator grille are featured in XLE, Limited and LE models, while new daytime running headlights are added to the Limited and SE models. Last but not the least peculiarity is ample available space inside. All the three rows of seating are absolutely comfortable with enough expandable legroom, as well as sufficient headroom, while Limited version with FWD features second-row bucket seats with reclining, so you may feel yourself like in a high-class plane. Seats in the second row can’t be folded away, but can be removed if need, while third-row seating folds flat. So, in total about 150 cb ft is available space for the things you need in your travel. Dashboard is big and wide, which adds the feeling that there are two clear sections in the car: driver’s and passengers’ ones. New larger screens are put between the gauges, and they are black-and-white for lower models, and correspondingly colored in the superior models.
All the 2015 Toyota Sienna models are equipped with V-6 3.5 liter engine providing 266 horsepower. Mated to 6-speed auto transmission, it provides active and lively performance on road. Front-wheel drive configuration is by default on all variants, but if you prefer LE, Limited or XLE you can choose between FWD and AWD. Handling is not perfect and fuel efficiency is not good enough, though. FWD cars score 18 mpg when driving in the city and 25 for the highway, which is medium for the class. Models of AWD configuration reach 16/23 mpg.
2015 Toyota Sienna MSRP starts from $28,600.
