2019 Toyota Sienna Review
Even with crossovers ruling the roads, people who are looking for the ideal family transport still find a place for the solid, good-old-fashioned minivan. There aren’t nearly as many minivan manufacturers on the roads as there are other vehicle types, which makes the field very competitive, with every manufacturer fighting for the top spot.
When it comes to comfort, technology, safety, and drivability, there are few minivans on the road today better than the Toyota Sienna. The new model features some cutting-edge technology for an outstanding experience overall. Check out this detailed review of the 2019 Toyota Sienna and learn where to go to see one and get behind the wheel yourself.
High-end technology is essential in a vehicle like a minivan, which needs to center on utility and comfort as a primary family transport. The new 2019 Toyota Sienna comes packed full of outstanding tech even at the base level. Not only does it include Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™, but it has integrated Amazon Alexa as well. It’s also one of the few minivans that has optional all-wheel drive, giving it great traction.
It’s powered by a V6 engine at the standard level. When you combine this with the AWD, you’ve got a minivan that can rival some SUVs in power and performance. The 8-speed transmission delivers solid fuel economy to back it up. It seats up to eight passengers comfortably, with optional second-row captains’ chairs reducing this to seven.
There are five trim levels on the new Siena: the base L, the LE and SE midrange, and the XLE and Limited luxury trims. Even at the base level you get the Entune™ infotainment system with 7-inch touch screen as well as a CD player, Bluetooth®, a whopping five USB ports, and auxiliary jack. Windshield wiper de-icer and tri-zone climate control are ideal for comfort and convenience.
The features get even better from there, with power back doors, heated mirrors, and power seats adding optimal convenience and comfort; upgraded sport suspension offering superior control; and features like keyless ignition and entry, GPS navigation, and a back-seat entertainment system taking it to the next level. There’s even an amplifier that pumps the driver’s voice through the back speakers — no more shouting to the third-row passengers!
Of course, a minivan has to offer superior cargo space in order to haul your football, baseball, or hockey gear or to load up your sleeping bags and tent for a camping trip. The Sienna offers plenty of room in the back for your shopping bags, luggage, or other cargo. Even with all the seats up, you get a full 39.1 cubic feet of space. When you fold just the third row down, this expands to 87.1 cubic feet, and when you fold all three rows down, you’re up to a whopping 150 cubic inches of cargo room.
If you’re in South Florida, anywhere in the Miami region, from Kendall to Hialeah, Doral, or beyond, you can check out the 2019 Sienna for yourself. Just stop into Doral Toyota and hop in to get it out on the roads for a test drive today.
