Minivans are competing with the growing segment of SUVs and many buyers don’t realize that a minivan can give you more space and features than a large SUV.
Minivan passengers enjoy more interior space and cargo space is more generous on a minivan than most SUVs. When I travel with family and children is very difficult to put all our suitcases in the trunk of any large SUVs, but with the Sienna minivan you have plenty of space for a lot of suitcases, packages and large objects. For me a minivan is the best way to travel with children and family.
The Sienna has a unique square box styling design. This minivan may be better for you if you’re a large family, but even for a small groups there is always something to enjoy when riding this minivan.
The Toyota Sienna is one of the most prestigious minivans on the market. This minivan is manufactured at the Toyota facilities in Princeton, Indiana, produced for the North American market only.

It gives you a wish to stay on the road There is enough room for everybody on board and storage for anything you may need, from music instruments to sport accessories, beach umbrellas, portable chairs, extra clothes, it seems that everything can fit inside the minivan Toyota Sienna.

Made in the US
The Toyota Sienna minivan is becoming an American tradition, it has been produced by Toyota for more than 2 decades. The Sienna is manufactured at the Toyota Motor Manufacturing in Princeton, Indiana.
Onboard the Sienna long rides are exciting and very comfortable. The driver can focus on driving and enjoy the large interior of the cabin, and the passengers can relax and watch a movie while riding. So much space inside the back of the Sienna allows passengers to walk from the third row to the second row.
Passengers onboard this minivan can recline the seats almost all the way down, making the Sienna the perfect place to take a nap and rest while watching your favorite move on the DVD/Blue Ray or other external media. Reclining seats so much is only possible on a minivan, no other automobiles give you so much interior space.
Sienna 5 Trim Models to Choose
This family minivan is offered in five convenient trim levels so that every Sienna buyer can select the most appropriate trim and configuration according to your needs, budget and wishes.
I like Toyota’s flexible pricing giving you many options, features and value pricing.
The 5 trim models are LE and XLE with an 8-seater interior, three-seater seats in the second and third rows, 7-seater XSE, Limited and Platinum trim models with super comfortable separate seats in the second row.
As usual with Toyota vehicles pricing offers great value and there is a price for every budget. You can buy a new Siena minivan for only $33K with the LE Sienna base model, or you can become more generous with your budget and pay up to $49K with the top of the line Sienna Platinum, compared to other large vehicles full of features this price is actually low and would be cheaper than other large vehicles with similar features.

I am test driving the XSE one of my favorite models because it has great mid-range price and generous features that can satisfy most drivers and families.

You can choose your preference for menu access and configuration. The standard navigation is precise and easy to read, and the system’s voice commands respond well to natural language. Apple CarPlay or Android Auto smartphone integration is also standard.
The infotainment system uses a combination of a responsive touchscreen and physical buttons.
Sienna 2021 New Design
The current fourth-generation Sienna was developed by Toyota jointly with CALTY Studios in Newport Beach, California and Ann Arbor, Michigan.
This great family minivan offers a combination of spaciousness, comfort, convenience, fuel efficiency and versatility that other vehicle types cannot match. The goal was to optimize everything that is good about the minivan function while wrapping it all up in a bold, attractive, modern and provocative design.
The new Sienna includes strong and secure proportions with a shoulder-style body design and muscular wheel extensions that express athleticism. The body surface is boldly shaped, a fresh departure from the typical boxy minivan that drives the roads today.
Exterior design of the Sienna was inspired by the legendary Japanese Shinkansen bullet train to look sleek, fast and confident. The headlights in the Sienna are set high and stretched out to the sides as if they were being shaped by the wind. The bold lower grille contrasts with slim, high-tech LED fog lights that are offset at the corners to reinforce a wide and stable stance.
The Sienna XSE model I am test driving is an ultra-sporty minivan model that delivers an unforgettable driving experience never seen before in a minivan.
The XSE features dark 20-inch 5-spoke wheels and aggressive front and rear bumpers that are unique to the XSE.
All Sienna models feature a hybrid powertrain that uses a four-cylinder engine. Total system output is 245 horsepower. Front-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is available on all models.
Toyota Care Complimentary
The Sienna includes Toyota Care, free of charge, a no-cost maintenance plan standard with the purchase or lease of every new Toyota Sienna, during the first 2 years or 25,000 miles, whichever comes first. Toyota Care also includes 24-hour roadside assistance for 2 years and unlimited miles.
