2021 Toyota Sienna for Sale in Warwick, RI
Toyota has made some big changes to their 2021 Sienna minivan, starting with its outright appearance. This people mover now flaunts a sculpted body with a wide-mouth grille, slim and sleek headlights, and an overall more SUV-like design. Not only that, the bold new Toyota Sienna will – drum roll please – only be offered as a hybrid. That’s right, the 2021 Toyota Sienna is a hybrid-electric-only minivan with a class-leading 33 combined mpg (manufacturer-estimated). Aside from this, all 2021 Toyota Sienna trims will now get the Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 suite of active driver aids and standard blind-spot monitoring. A brand-new Platinum trim will be available as well.
Trims and Mechanical Components
The 2021 Toyota Sienna is a seven- or eight-passenger minivan sold in five trim levels: LE, XLE, XSE, Limited, and Platinum. Unlike prior Toyota Sienna generations, this latest incarnation will be driven by an efficient hybrid-electric system consisting of a 2.5-liter gasoline engine and a pair of electric motors that produce a combined 243 hp. Front-wheel drive is standard, but all-wheel drive is available. Toyota states that the 2021 Sienna will be able to pull up to 3,500 pounds.
A Fresh Interior with Comfort
The Sienna is back for 2021 with a fully modernized interior that’s built for serious comfort. Instead of the traditional open cockpit design, Toyota has implemented a new “Bridge Layout” center console that’s positioned high between the driver and passenger for ease of use and optimal ergonomics. Beneath the new bridge is a large storage area, perfect for stowing a purse or a bag. The lower trims offer a stowable eighth seat between the second-row captain’s chairs, while higher trims are eligible for captain’s chairs that slide forward and back a full 25 inches. The Limited and Platinum grades can be issued reclining second-row seats with pop-out ottomans.
The base LE comes with tri-zone automatic climate control, fabric seats, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, and a rearview camera system. Heated front seats and a sunroof are optional. The XLE adds the heated front seats and sunroof as standard fare, along with hands-free power sliding side doors, a power back door with jam protection, quad-zone automatic climate control, and front and rear parking sensors. The XSE gets sport-oriented front seats and a power-adjustable front passenger’s seat, while the Limited receives leather-upholstered heated and ventilated front seats and a vacuum storage box. At the top of the range, the Platinum pampers its occupants with a refrigerator and a surround-view camera system.
Safety and Technology
Each of the 2021 Toyota Sienna trims comes with the Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 suite of active driver aids. This excellent technology grouping includes a pre-collision system with pedestrian/low light detection, full-speed range dynamic radar cruise control, lane departure alert with steering assist, lane trace assist, automatic high beams, and road sign assist. A blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert is included on each trim as well.
The LE has an infotainment system with a 9-inch touchscreen, plus voice recognition, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Amazon Alexa, a six-speaker audio system, satellite radio, Bluetooth hands-free and audio streaming, seven USB ports, and an on-board Wi-Fi hotspot. Optional for the LE (but standard with the XLE) are HD radio, an eight-speaker audio system, and Siri Eyes Free capability. The XSE benefits its driver with integrated navigation, while the Limited and Platinum get a 12-speaker JBL audio system (optional for the XLE and XSE). The Platinum is the only one to get a head-up display.
