2014 Toyota Sienna – review, specs, price, changes, exterior, redesign, concept
Toyota Sienna’s one of the top of the line minivans in America, and for good reason. It’s roomy, safe, posts great mileage figures, and vies with the Honda Odyssey with its adaptable seating diversion -however both still lose that scrimmage to the Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country. It has a base cost of $ 26, 920.00.
Sienna just experiences mellow changes for 2014, by including a load rendition and by making a towing bundle standard on all adaptations. Minivans are about space and usefulness. At more than 200 inches in length, and more than 78 inches wide, the Sienna’s a huge van. There’s space all over, even in the third line. The front seats get a majestic seating position, and even in the second line, a couple of air transport style leaning back can seats are accessible. The fundamental seat is agreeable with spreads of head and extra space to move around -and it slides on a stretched track so that either second- or third-line room to breathe could be extended. It additionally supports in stacking travelers into the third line.
The second-line seat might be evacuated totally, however does not overlay away into the floor, the Chrysler minivans’ extraordinary trap. The third-line seat does fold level, and with it stowed and the center seats pushed forward, the Sienna has 150 cubic feet of load space. There’s no more four-chamber motor, so all Siennas now accompany a 3.5-liter V-6 with 266 drive, coupled to a six-rate programmed. Execution is lively, however gas mileage dipped generally speaking with the loss of the four-barrel, while it climbed on the Honda Odyssey. Taking care of isn’t exactly as fresh as the Odyssey, yet the Sienna’s electric force guiding and free suspension are dealt with well, without much body roll. The SE form has marginally more straightforward feel, however its an exceptionally unobtrusive qualification to be drawn- -one we think gets lost by most minivan customers.
Few of us shop for minivans focused around style, however Toyota at any rate attempts to bring the Sienna into a present day stream. The front end imparts the most recent Toyota outline prompts, with a low grille that decreases upward delicately into a roof line that does nothing to bombshell convention not like the Honda Odyssey‘s lightning-jolt side signal, or the Nissan Quest’s gorilla of the Ford Flex.
It’s a clean take, free of contention, and brimming with utility, since the consistent, rectangular shape plays out specifically into boundless inside space. The cockpit’s styled with a bit of dramatization, and a lot grainy plastic yet its composed with consideration.
Standard security peculiarities incorporate drapery airbags and soundness control, and a rearview Polaroid and Bluetooth are accessible, and blind side screens are currently standard on upper trims. All Siennas accompany double sliding side entryways; power windows, bolts and mirrors; journey control; a CD player and aux jack; a tilt/extendable directing wheel; and three-zone atmosphere control. Upscale forms include a force tailgate and force sliding side entryways; directing wheel sound controls; calfskin upholstery; warmed front seats; a double sunroof; and a tremendous 16.4 extensive LCD screen and a DVD player to hold the two back columns of travelers entertained.
