Eco- and Family-Friendly: the 2023 Toyota Sienna
Drivers looking for their next family vehicle often gravitate toward SUVs like the Toyota Highlander and the Toyota RAV4. While that’s certainly understandable, the 2023 Toyota Sienna retains a strong foothold among car shoppers.
The minivan’s efficient hybrid powertrain, spacious cabin, and enviable features all keep the new Toyota Sienna top of mind, and its modest base MSRP of $35,385 certainly doesn’t hurt in this regard.
A hybrid vehicle, the Toyota Sienna relies on a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, a battery pack, and an electric motor for power. Those elements combine to generate 245 horsepower, which is enough power for the minivan to tow as much as 3,500 lbs. with the appropriate equipment.
Front-wheel drive is standard with all-wheel drive offered as an option for drivers who want more sure-footedness. The minivan relies on a continuously variable automatic transmission for gear shifts.
An eight-seat layout is standard. If you replace the second-row bench with captain’s chairs, the vehicle’s passenger capacity drops to seven.
Like the minivan has ample seating for travelers, the vehicle has plenty of space for gear. Here is the amount of cargo room you’ll have access to behind each of the minivan’s rows:
- Third row: 33.5 cubic feet
- Second row: 75.2 cubic feet
- First row: 101 cubic feet
Active Safety Equipment
New Toyota models are renowned for being safe, and the active safety equipment the vehicles are outfitted with is one of the reasons why that’s the case. The advanced safety and driver-assistive features that are standard for the Toyota Sienna include:
- Rearview camera
- Traffic sign recognition
- Blind-spot monitor with a rear cross-traffic alert
- Automatic high beams
- Forward collision warning and intervention system
- Lane departure warning with lane-keeping assist
