2020 Toyota Sienna
Biggest and Best Features
The addition of Apple CarPlay to the Toyota Sienna means you never have to leave your smartphone at home. You can safely access your favourite apps from behind the wheel, using navigation to make it to your destination or even playing music on the school run. Don’t forget to use Siri voice commands for ease of use, which also happens to reduce the need to look away from the road.
The Toyota Sienna is the only minivan in Canada that offers an all-wheel drive option. This means you can tackle any climate or road conditions. Now you don’t have to postpone your weekend trip away that the kids have been looking forward to. Instead, you can feel confident and ready behind the wheel. All-wheel drive lets you tackle snow and adverse conditions with better traction.
Engine and Capabilities
The Toyota Sienna is a minivan that shouldn’t be underestimated. Under the hood is a 3.5-litre V6 engine, delivering 296 horsepower and featuring an eight-speed transmission. We’re talking about a powerful ride that offers competitive fuel economy. It doesn’t matter whether your vehicle is full of passengers and luggage, you’ll still enjoy a smooth and comfortable journey.
You can choose between a front-wheel drive for the city or an all-wheel drive to take on any road conditions. The choice is all yours. In addition, the Toyota Sienna SE enjoys a sport-tuned suspension for a fun and capable ride no matter where you’re going, even if it’s off the beaten path.
Exterior Styling and Functionality
The Toyota Sienna enjoys a sleek and sporty exterior that makes it more than just a practical minivan. It enjoys an expansive, lower grille with a combination of sharper lines and curves composing the rest of the vehicle. In fact, every model enjoys a different grille to make them stand out, ranging from chrome and black to silver painted. If you are daring and choose the Nightshade Toyota Sienna, you can look mean on the road, with a black grille, as well as black badging and wheels.
Depending on the model, you’ll be driving on 17 to 19-inch wheels. There are roof rails for extra storage options and an antenna shark fin for style and better reception. The rear spoiler and front and rear splash guards add to the athletic style, with the SE featuring a sport front and rear fascia.
You’ve got a variety of exciting colours to choose from for 2020. This includes Super White, Blizzard Pearl, Pre-Dawn Grey Mica, Celestial Silver Metallic, Midnight Black Metallic, Salsa Red Pearl, Toasted Walnut Pearl and Parisian Night Pearl.
Interior Layout Styling
Kids always beat you to the car. But with the smart key system, they can jump right in. The push-button start makes it easy to get on your way, with the driver enjoying a commanding view of the road. Depending on the trim level, you can enjoy comfortable bucket fabric seating or luxurious leather seating in the front. Most trims have 8-way power adjustable driver’s seat, while some upper trims have a 4-way power adjustable passenger seat too.

The rear seats have a 60/40 split for expanding cargo space, as well as the ability to easily remove the seats altogether. Shopping bag hooks and tie-down rings are additional features that help you with organization. Access to your cargo space is simple too, even if your hands are full thanks to the power liftgate.
Cool technology is essential when you’re road tripping with the family. The good news is that the Toyota Sienna is ready to go. So, bring all your electronics when you go off the grid.
