The minivan is on the move. Enter the all-new 2021 Toyota Sienna: sleek, smart and spacious. Thanks to its get-it-done personality and Toyota’s state-of-the-art hybrid system, the 2021 Sienna combines the thrill of an SUV with the ease and adaptability of van life. It’s hard to narrow down the list of sweet spots, but after taking the challenge, here are six top picks for things to love about the 2021 Sienna.
The Sleekest Sienna
Sienna drivers know why they bought a minivan. They’re looking for space and flexibility. But let’s also add style. The 2021 Toyota Sienna’s modern new look starts with a front inspired by Japan’s iconic Shinkansen bullet train. With a bold lower grille, sculpted tear-dropped body and integrated spoiler, the new minivan fits in an art gallery, as well as the garage.
Cut the Clutter
While the exterior is streamlined for peak efficiency, the Sienna’s interior makes the most of its cubic feet. Up front is an all-new bridge console, ergonomically positioned with space beneath to store items such as packages or electronics. Added bonus: the console features edges designed to prevent small items from slipping into narrow spaces. Look forward to less time spent digging between seats for dropped phones, keys or toys.
Further de-cluttering of the cabin is achieved with the available Qi wireless charging capacity. Simply place any compatible phone on the docking station to avoid cumbersome cords.
You’ve Got Pull
As spacious as the cabin of the Sienna is, it may not always fit quite everything you want to bring along. With a towing capacity of up to 3,500 pounds—enough for a small motorboat, a compact travel trailer or several bicycles—the Sienna helps you bring the goods. For even more flexibility, there’s an available 1,500-watt power inverter with up to 120-volts to power up compatible devices big and small.
Go for Green
Cool and crisp, exterior color Cypress comes standard on the 2021 Toyota Sienna LE, XLE, Limited and Platinum grades, making this a great time to try a new shade. The 2021 Toyota Sienna is also now the Family Green Car of the Year thanks to winning that category in the 2021 Green Car Awards™. With a standard hybrid powertrain across all trims and an array of new tech and amenities, the 2021 Toyota Sienna raises the bar for style, safety, comfort, versatility and fuel efficiency in its segment.
A Maximalist Minivan
As customers have come to expect, the Sienna comfortably fits seven riders. That number grows to eight with an available split-and-stow third-row center seat. Passengers in XLE, XSE, and Platinum Grade edition middle rows may feel as though they are lounging at home. Available captain’s chairs come equipped with a super-long slide feature and an ottoman to help passengers kick back and relax.
If more space is needed, the third row folds down easily, creating more than 75 cubic feet of storage. That’s enough cargo to fit a few extra pieces of luggage with ease.
Gaming the System
With an EPA-estimated 36 combined mpg rating for the FWD model, Sienna drivers can cruise to their destinations with as few, or as many, breaks as desired.
The 10-inch color display lets drivers know the optimal acceleration amount for eco-conscious driving, with a fun, game-like scoring function to test the operator’s touch. The Sienna delivers up to 243 horsepower through the Toyota Hybrid System II, with a noticeable kick at low-speed torque from the twin electric motors working in concert.
For a powerful engine, it gives off a lot of quiet, a pleasure for drivers and passengers.
