TORONTO,: What are you waiting for? The 2019 Toyota Sienna – the official van of family fun – is ready to go.
Sienna offers a choice of power-trains – including the only all-wheel drive minivan models in Canada – plus the advanced safety technologies of Toyota Safety Sense P as standard equipment, and a long list of convenience and comfort features that make every road trip a welcome adventure. New for 2019, the sporty and stylish SE grade is now also available with all-wheel drive. In addition, Apple CarPlay joins Entune as standard gear on all models, making the Sienna a rolling connectivity centre.
“Minivans have a reputation for being boring – but the Sienna is anything but,” said Cyril Dimitris, Vice President, Toyota Canada Inc. “From its bold styling and impressive comfort, to its surprising performance, the Sienna is ready for road trips, luggage, sports gear, carpooling, small business cargo, and anything else Canadians can imagine. And as Canada’s only minivan with available all-wheel-drive, Sienna delivers tremendous safety, too.”
The difference is immediately apparent, at curbside. Sienna’s styling includes a bold front fascia, a profile defined by sharp character lines, sliding doors on both sides, alloy wheels, power adjustable and heated exterior mirrors and a rear spoiler.
Inside, the cabin is spacious and comfortable, with plenty of glass to let in the light and make Sienna feel airy and open. There’s room for seven or eight adults – depending on model – and four anchors for child safety seats. Even with every seat in use, there’s still plenty of space for everybody’s suitcases, too. A long list of comfort and convenience features standard to all models includes three-zone independent climate control, front row captain’s seats, one-touch 60/40 split and stow third-row seat, ECO indicator, outside temperature gauge, power door locks with keyless entry, a conversation mirror, power windows with auto up/down on all windows, rear privacy glass, steering wheel-mounted audio controls and voice recognition controls, tilting/telescoping steering column, plenty of thoughtful in-cabin storage, three 12v power outlets for personal electronics and retained accessory power, cruise control, cargo area tie-down rings and shopping bag hooks.
New for 2019, all Sienna models are standard equipped with Apple CarPlay, which seamlessly connects an iPhone to the car’s built-in display. This feature joins Entune 3.0 Audio to create a minivan that’s also an impressive connectivity centre – with access to traffic information, weather, Slacker, Yelp, sports and stock market results, fuel prices and more, plus Scout GPS Link smartphone-based navigation tools. LE and SE grades include Entune 3.0 Plus:
Under the hood, all Sienna models are built around a 296 horsepower 3.5L six-cylinder engine enhanced with Variable Valve Timing with intelligence and other systems to boost power across a broad range of engine speeds. This is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission with lock-up torque converter for smooth, confident acceleration and optimized fuel efficiency.
