If you’re looking for the ultimate family transportation solution, you’re going to have to pick a minivan. Despite the popularity of SUVs, they don’t quite have the roominess, comfort, and convenience that minivans offer with their large dimensions and sliding doors. Unfortunately, minivans just aren’t sexy. They’re bland and uninteresting and make you wonder if they’re really all that worth it… unless we’re talking about the Sienna.
The Sienna is not just roomy, functional, and full of special features—it’s also stylish and suave and we’ve got to agree with Toyota when it calls it the “original Swagger Wagon.” Of course, looks aren’t everything, but fortunately the Sienna has everything else covered too.
It’s the only minivan in the segment with all-wheel drive, making it that much easier to maintain control when driving out in snowy or slick conditions. It’s powered by a smooth 3.5-liter V6 that makes 266 horsepower and 245 lb-ft of torque, allowing it to tow up to 3,500 pounds (all the kids plus the camping gear? easy!) while still delivering up to 25 mpg on the highway, because efficiency matters.
But how to keep the kids entertained during that extra-long road trip? The Sienna offers plenty of options there too, like an ultra-wide rear-seat entertainment system that can play two movies side-by-side (including Blu-ray!). It also features a minivan-exclusive Driver Easy Speak function that lets you tell the kids to calm down back there without having to raise your voice or turn your head around. It’s the ultimate family vehicle, so be sure to visit us at Dick Dyer Toyota and try it out!
