2018 Toyota Sienna
2018 Toyota Sienna
With its high-tech safety features and available all-wheel drive, the 2018 Toyota Sienna puts a sporty, modern spin on family-friendly transport.
Why Buy the Toyota Sienna?
Although crossover SUVs are the current rage, minivans – namely, the 2018 Toyota Sienna – are still the most family-friendly way to travel. The Sienna’s sliding side doors and roomy cabin make it easy to access any of the three rows of seating. If you’re familiar with minivans, you know that they offer increased cargo space over SUVs. The Sienna is no exception, providing 39.1 cubic feet behind the rear seats for your family-sized grocery hauls and 150 cubic feet with both rear rows folded. Whether you’re headed to IKEA or some neighborhood garage sales, you can count on the Sienna to bring home your goods. This minivan is also unique in that it offers all-wheel drive, performance technology that maximizes traction – and therefore safety – on wet or icy roads.
Which Toyota Sienna Should You Buy?
With five trim levels at your dealership, there’s a 2018 Toyota Sienna for every budget. Choose from the base L, mid-range LE, sporty SE and SE Premium, and the luxurious XLE and XLE Premium.
The entry-level L is nicely equipped with modern conveniences, including tri-zone automatic climate control, which does a great job of maintaining three separate temperatures. With five USB ports throughout the cabin, your kids can keep their devices fully charged, no matter how long the trip. The L also comes with the Toyota Safety Sense package, which includes driver aids like forward collision warning with pedestrian detection and automatic emergency braking. This technology alerts you to dangers you may have missed to help keep you and your family safe.
Your daily drive just got a little more convenient in the 2018 Toyota Sienna LE, thanks to features like the power-sliding rear doors and heated mirrors. Inside, the upgraded easy-clean fabric upholstery helps you combat spills and stains. The LE’s Wi-Fi hotspot is an attractive feature, especially if your kids can’t be without their devices for long.
The sporty SE enhances your ride with sport-tuned suspension and sharper steering. It’s the right choice for parents who navigate winding roads and narrow city streets on a regular basis. The noise-reducing windshield gives your road trips an air of quiet harmony. Up front, heated seats keep driver and front passenger snug and warm on winter drives.
The SE Premium takes the SE’s performance enhancements and adds a number of tech features for an increasingly modern ride. These include a rear-seat entertainment system to keep young kids happy on long trips. The Driver Easy Speak system amplifies your voice over the rear speakers, so your kids can’t act like they didn’t hear you ask them to put on their seatbelts. Keyless entry and ignition help you load the family and hit the road in minimal time.
The 2018 Toyota Sienna XLE reverts to the LE’s steering and suspension equipment, but builds on the SE’s comfort and convenience features for a more luxurious ride. It adds power-opening rear-quarter windows, so everyone can let the breeze in on a nice day. Keyless entry and push-button start save time in the parking lot. Inside, the imitation wood trim sets a stylish tone. When you choose the 2018 Toyota Sienna XLE Premium, you’re essentially getting the LE’s performance gear with the SE Premium’s luxury features. The XLE Premium adds to this list with rear parking sensors, helping you navigate parallel parking spaces with greater ease.
What Family-Friendly Features Does the Sienna Have?
The 2018 Toyota Sienna makes it easy to move through rush-hour traffic with the entire family in tow. Pop a DVD or video game into the rear-seat entertainment system, and you can keep your kids happily occupied while you pick your way through a traffic jam. If it seems like a scuffle is about to break out in the third row, use the Driver Easy Speak system, which amplifies your voice through the rear speakers, to sternly nip it in the bud. The Wi-Fi hotspot is another great addition to the cabin; your kids can keep up with their favorite YouTube channels and Twitter feeds all the way to grandmother’s house.
Can a Toyota Sienna Tow or Pull a Trailer?
Yes! Simply add the Towing Prep Package to any 2018 Toyota Sienna trim model, and you’ll be ready to tow up to 3,500 pounds. When it’s time to hit the beach, you’ll have the utility you need to bring your Jet Skis or a small boat along.
