2015 Toyota Sienna: What’s New?
The 2015 minivan market doesn’t feature much in the way of competition, but that hasn’t stopped Toyota from giving the 2015 Toyota Sienna an interior and exterior makeover. The new Sienna has been shaped up for the next crop of buyers opting for a minivan rather than a three-row SUV crossover.
So what’s new in the 2015 Toyota Sienna? Quite a lot actually, and here’s a run-down of the main new attractions.
New on the Inside
Driver-friendliness, family functionality and intuitive technology are the flavor of 2015 for the Sienna. Changes to the new model comprise:
- Stitched surfaces and upgraded materials
- Intuitive audio system and HVAC controls
- Redesigned instrument cluster
- Optional Blu-Ray entertainment center
- Interior refinements including soft-touch materials in place of hard plastics
- Multi-information display located between the tachometer and speedometer
- Upgraded steering wheel
- Reversing camera
For improving communications between those in the front seats and those in back, an optional pull-down conversational mirror allows the driver to check on rear-seat passengers without turning around. Another option is the Easy Speak feature, which allows front seat passengers to talk with those in the rear via a microphone system with the sound amplified through the car’s audio speakers.
New on the Outside
Changes to the exterior of the 2015 Toyota Sienna are mostly visual refinements, although the chassis has been stiffened with more than 140 additional weld points. The most noteworthy changes to the minivan exterior are:
- Redesigned front grille with optional LED headlamps and running lights
- Redesigned tail lights (not present on the SE trim level)
- Improved aerodynamics
Additionally, the Limited, XLE and LE versions of the Sienna get new grille colors.
Returning focus to the internal updates of the Toyota Sienna, safety is always a priority for families. Being a vehicle designed to appeal to those with a large family to haul around, Toyota has made sure that some safety improvements were added to the new Sienna model. These improvements come in the form of enlarged airbags all round, as well as the addition of a front passenger seat cushion airbag, bringing the total number of airbags to eight – the highest number in this class of vehicle.
