A Minivan Mainstay Made Even Better
The Toyota Sienna became a minivan favorite for its combination of practicality, reliability and resale value. And it remains the only minivan available with all-wheel drive, a key feature for families living in the wetter and wilder parts of the country. After gaining a more powerful standard V6, new 8-speed automatic transmission and better fuel economy for 2017, the Sienna has again been enhanced for 2018.
The 2018 Toyota Sienna receives the Toyota Safety Sense (TSS-P) suite of driver assists as standard equipment. This includes a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning and assist plus automatic high beams. A newly styled front end, upgraded Entune multimedia system, additional USB ports and a Bird’s-Eye View monitor for the Limited trim round out the changes.
"With its powerful 296-horsepower V6 engine, the Toyota Sienna has always delivered impressive acceleration that borders on sporty, although we don’t envision many Sienna drivers challenging other cars to a drag race. The Sienna’s power is better used for passing and merging, and tackling steep grades with a full complement onboard. On the highway, the Sienna is a serene machine, cruising effortlessly at 75 mph with barely a hint of road or wind noise infiltrating the cabin. Those looking for a bit more feedback from their minivan’s driving experience should look to the SE trim." Get more driving insight from our 2018 Toyota Sienna full review.
Bring the Popcorn
The second-row lounge seating is comfy, as if you're sitting in your living room recliner. The optional entertainment system makes it feel even more like family movie night, but here siblings don't have to agree: the screen is wide enough that it can show two different movies at the same time.
Toyota Sienna Shoppers Also Look At
KBB.com visitor and two-time Sienna owner Joyce offered these insights: "It feels like you're driving a sedan not a van. The navigation system is a disappointment! it's elementary in design and usage. Google maps beats it hands down. Plus it's over $700 to update Toyota's Nav system. save your $$$. Love the storage in it, and the flush fold down 3rd row seats...now I don't have to find room to store them." Read more Toyota Sienna consumer reviews.
