The 2017 Toyota Sienna is the perfect family vehicle with its sleek exterior that makes you forget it is a minivan and plenty of interior versatility. Parents will appreciate the family-oriented features and the excellent safety ratings of this Toyota, and you can choose from five different trim levels to customize your minivan to meet your needs.
Gone are the days of boring old minivans that lack style. The 2017 Sienna SE has s sporty vibe thanks to its rear and front bumpers, bold taillights and headlights, 19-inch wheels, and aggressive sport mesh front grille. It even has rear underbody spoilers that let those around you know how well this minivan can perform and add plenty of style. Projector-beam headlights have smoked lenses and you get LED taillights to help with visibility as well as aesthetic appeal. The LED daytime running lights add even more style with their bright shine and eye-catching profile. For added convenience, you can opt for dual power sliding doors with convenient switches and the option to pull on the handle. The available power liftgate similarly adds convenience and lets you close it from the driver’s seat. The available Smart Key System lets you get inside your minivan and start it with the keys in your pocket.
The inside of the 2017 Sienna is just as stylish as the exterior, creating a premium experience. The dashboard has a wraparound design that ensures all of the controls are within easy reach to prevent distracted driving. It is also nice and wide with high-end accents and plenty of technology, including the color-screen display. Thanks to soft-touch materials, the dash also feels nice on your hands. This Toyota also offers a dual moonroof that lets everyone see the sky regardless of his or her seating position. Toyota knows that just because you need a family vehicle doesn’t mean you want to sacrifice features, which is why you can opt for leather seating in your Sienna, complete with contrast stitching. Regardless of how you configure your Sienna, you will notice soft-touch materials throughout, including on the door inserts and vent controls. Speaking of comfort for your hands, the steering wheel features controls for audio, Bluetooth, and more so you can keep your hands in a comfortable position at all times.
In a family vehicle like a minivan, versatility is crucial, and the Toyota Sienna does not disappoint. With all seats occupied, you still have 39 cubic feet for cargo, more than enough for the entire carpool’s backpacks and even sports gear. Fold down the rear two rows to get 150 cubic feet, perfect for moving furniture. There is even a hidden cargo area for small items, like your camera or purse. Reaching the third-row seats isn’t a problem, either. Just tip up the cushions in the second row then slide them forward. You can even swap out these second-row seats for lounging captain chairs with adjustable armrests and ottomans. Opting for second-row captain’s chairs gives you a center console that slides to the rear. The third row is equally flexible thanks to the Split & Stow 3rd Row Seat that lets you fold the seats into the cargo storage compartment to give you a flat load floor in a single motion. The Sienna comes standard with three-zone automatic climate control so the rear-seat passengers can be comfortable, as well.
The 2017 Toyota Sienna gives parents more ways to keep their children entertained on long car rides with the available Dual-View Blu-ray Disc Entertainment Center with its two 120-volt AC outlets, RCA jacks, wireless headphones, and 16.4-inch color display that can show two small images or one larger widescreen image. Of course, all Siennas come with Entune Audio with Bluetooth, USB and auxiliary audio inputs, voice recognition, Siri Eyes Free, and a 6.1-inch touchscreen. The standard 3.5-inch Multi-Information Display cluster between the gauges is customizable and can be upgraded to a 4.2-inch version.

In addition to the standard rearview camera, the Sienna gives you plenty of ways to enhance safety.

You can add the blind spot monitor and rear cross-traffic alert for warnings of vehicles in your blind spots. The available parking assist sonar lets you know how close you are to obstacles around you when parking. You can also add dynamic radar cruise control. The available Safety Connect system connects you to a 24/7 response center for automatic collision notification, emergency assistance, roadside assistance, and stolen vehicle location. For true peace of mind, add the Pre-Collision System, which detects a potential collision and takes steps to reduce the impact, like retracting front seatbelts and applying brakes, when necessary.
