The 2015 Toyota Sienna: the must-have family hauler
Appealing exterior styling. Upscale features. Sport Flavor. You may not believe it, but yes, we really are describing a minivan! Nowadays, minivans are much more alluring than they once were – especially in the Toyota Sienna. For eight passenger seating, user-friendly controls and a high-quality interior, the 2015 Sienna is an excellent choice for a family hauler.
Interior: There-s much to love about Toyota-s newest 2015 Sienna, especially its interior, which shows off a new dash design that-s not only more attractive, but more functional. Materials are of high quality, seating is plush and storage space is abundant.
Seven-passenger Siennas are equipped with specialized second-row captain-s chairs with La-Z-Boy-style footrests. They are also able to slide very far forward and back for increased comfort and cargo space. Max cargo capacity in the Sienna offers an excellent 150 cubic feet.
Every Sienna on the 2015 lineup features Toyota-s Entune touchscreen interface. This user-friendly system comes with easy-to-decipher menus, navigation and suite of smartphone-connected services. Perfect for families is the rear-seat entertainment system available on select trims. It features a split-screen monitor that allows two different media to play simultaneously – talk about easy to please more than one at the same time!
Lineup: The 2015 Sienna lineup shows off upscale trim levels that offer consumer- and family-friendly equipment and features that prove the minivan can compete just as well as the rest of the vehicles out there. The L starts off the Sienna lineup with base-level equipment and features. It has 17-inch alloy wheels, manual sliding rear doors, automatic headlights, cruise control and triple-zone automatic climate control. The driver seat is height-adjustable and steering wheel is tilt-and-telescoping for good comfort. Electronics include, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity and four-speaker sound system with 6.1-inch touchscreen, CD player, USB/iPod interface and auxiliary audio jack. The L model also includes a rearview camera, which makes backing up a breeze.
For upgraded features, the LE provides everything from power-sliding side doors and nicer fabric upholstery to heated mirrors and eight-way power driver seat with power lumbar support. Electronic gains include a six-speaker sound system with seven-inch touchscreen and satellite and HD radio.
You can-t go wrong with the sport-themed SE, which has more aggressive styling with 19-inch wheels, a unique front fascia with fog lights, LED running lights and mesh inserts, plus lower-body skirting. It also boasts more oomph with sport-tuned suspension. Other items include: power lift gate, perforated leather upholstery, heated front seats and unique gauges with a larger, multipurpose display.
Enhance the SE with the SE Premium trim which offers more luxury niceties, like keyless entry and ignition, blind-spot and rear cross-traffic warning system, navigation system and Entune app integration. The rear-seat entertainment system comes with HDMI inputs, RCA jacks, DVD player and large, split-screen display. One perk you may find worthwhile if you have a noisy crew onboard is the Driver Easy Speak system, which broadcasts the driver-s voice via rear speakers.
