The brand-new Toyota Sienna was styled in California, developed in Michigan, and built in Indiana. Before creating the brand-new Sienna, primary engineer Yuji Yokoya drove the previous Sienna throughout The United States And Canada, with Mexico, Canada, as well as the U.S., through every state, every district, some 53,000 miles. A short, slight Japanese male, Yokoya-san was frequently accompanied by program supervisor John Jula, a tall, beefy American. An odd couple, they couldn't have actually been extra various in stature, look, and personality. Yet they shared a seriousness of objective, a commitment to designing the most effective minivan ever produced, and a strong funny bone. Dealing with designers as well as designers from all over the world, they ferreted every weak point and drawback of the old (1998-2003) Sienna as well as addressed it with this brand-new Sienna.

The greatest imperfection of the old Sienna was its absence of indoor roominess. Yokoya saw family members buried under travel luggage. He additionally identified it needed to be quieter so family members can a lot more easily talk on lengthy drives. He desired better seats. And also he intended to enhance stability at high speeds, particularly in cross winds and on crowned roadways.

The brand new 2004 Toyota Sienna is significantly bigger, broader, taller than the previous-generation version. Its wheelbase is 5 inches much longer as well as the track is 4 inches bigger than in 2015's model. Extending 200 inches over a 119-inch wheelbase, the new Sienna coincides size as the largest minivans on the market: the Honda Odyssey, Dodge Grand Campers, Chrysler Town & Nation, Ford Windstar, and the long-wheelbase variations of the Chevrolet Endeavor and also Pontiac Montana.

Every little thing on the Sienna huges as well as vibrant: Huge headlamps as well as large taillamps light up the night as well as give the Sienna visibility at night. Black pillars, as opposed to body-colored columns, make the new Sienna appearance also larger than its significant measurements. A large windscreen, big wipers, and also wiper-mounted washer nozzles made for snow belt enhance motorist presence.

The Sienna provides a streamlined look by minivan standards, boosted by its considerably raked windscreen and the black pillars. The port for the sliding doors is intelligently concealed, using a cleaner look. Though you should not anticipate eying at the car wash, the new Sienna is an appealing lorry.


The big dimensions of the Sienna produce a roomy inside. There's lots of space for guests and cargo. Fold up the 2nd- and third-row seats flat and the Sienna can lug 4x8 sheets of plywood.

Getting in and from the Sienna is very easy. Its step-in height is about 6 inches lower than that of the Sequoia SUV, a benefit when dressed up or taking care of young children or almost every single time you enter or out. The power gliding doors are smooth and peaceful and move more quickly than in the past, valuable for restless passengers. Hand-operated sliding doors as well as hands-on back hatch on the LE as well as CE versions have a quality feel also.

The rear side windows lower partly, though not listed below the center of mass of a young child, and function anti-pinch security created to minimize possibility of injuries to little hands and fingers. A nice function is the availability of sunshades for the 2nd- as well as third-row seats, which filterings system solid sunshine far better than personal privacy glass.

Up front the driver sits before a smooth, natural dash. Toyota says it splurged on the seats, which are designed to offer comfort for a selection of body shapes over extended periods of time. The guiding wheel turns as well as telescopes. Large mirrors and lots of glass give the driver a good view.

Trim products boost as you rise the line, but are of top quality even on the base CE version. The CE comes with a great towel interior, though the door inserts appear. LE features better fabric, better door inserts, and various other trim. XLE offers also better cloth, while the Limited design comes with leather.

There are lots of cubbies for storage. 2 glove boxes are offered and also a huge facility console holds 12 CDs. Armrest areas could each hold six CDs as well as there's a spot for a small mobile phone just to the right of the shifter. The completely dry cleansing hooks look big enough to accomodate a tons of completely dry cleaning. In back are hooks for holding grocery store bags. A conventional 115-volt outlet like the kind in your residence is given, allowing you to power computer systems or whatever else you want to range from your vehicle.

The 2nd row of seats is roomy. There's equally great legroom as well as it really feels spacious as well as ventilated with good area beside the guest's head. That's impressive given that the Sienna is fitted with side-curtain kind air bags; they do not intrude into back headroom as much as other designs. When not needed, the second-row seats topple ahead, offering a friendly seat bottom to freight or pets. The second-row seats are simple to remove and reinstall, though the captain's chairs evaluate 49 extra pounds each.

7- and eight-passenger designs differ in the configuation of the 2nd row. Seven-passenger designs showcase second-row captains chairs. The right-hand seat can be repositioned laterally (side to side), providing either a tiny bench seat or a set of bucket seats. The seat has to be eliminated and reinstalled in a couple of locations, however, it does not move on tracks like the seats in the Mazda MPV, which is a more pricey design. Toyota states it discovered that people normally do not relocate the second-row seats once they have actually put them in the favored setting. Moving them close together makes getting involved in the back row a little simpler. Relocating them apart makes them more comforable for grownups. A neat function: the facility console can be gotten rid of from in between the front seats and moved in between the second-row seats. (Removing it leaves space for a bag in between the pole positions. Proprietors who desire a center console in both locations could buy a 2nd center console.).

Eight-passenger versions use a bench seat for the second row that could seat three tiny travelers. It's a three-way split/folding bench with a little middle seat that can be moved nearly 13 inches more detailed to the front, putting infants and also kids in child seats within arm's reach. When not being utilized, the facility seat converts into a huge armrest.

Third-row seats supply rake change, which boosts their comfort. The third row is split 60/40 for added versatility whe.
