2018 Toyota Sienna – Comes with more visual modifications
While the 2017 Sienna was all about changes in the engine and performance that you could feel but not see, the 2018 Toyota Sienna is going to be more about visual modifications that include but are not limited to a brand new bumper and side panels, more USB ports, rear-seat entertainment system and better safety features.
It is still a family car – a minivan – but Toyota hopes that these modifications on the exterior will help the Sienna stand out from the crowd. The 2018 Toyota Sienna has a more aggressive and wider look, thanks to the lowered bumpers.
This minivan is more spacious than you probably have imagined. It will easily accommodate its eight passengers and also gives you more-than-enough space when it comes to your cargo. The 2018 Sienna is giving you an impressive interior volume of 164.4 cubic feet. The second-row seats can recline comfortably making it the most comfortable row in the Sienna, with features like leg cushion extenders along with foot rests.
The driver and the front passenger can enjoy the terrific front view. The inner cabin is constructed with superior quality materials, just like you’d expect from a Toyota and it is very thoughtful of the engineers to provide facilities like the twin glove boxes and other cargo organizers.
When talking about a Toyota car, you know that safety is not something that should worry much about as Toyota is known for making passenger safety its topmost priority.
The 2018 Toyota Sienna is expected to do better in this department when compared to its predecessor. It is expected to come with automatic high beams, cruise control and lane departure warnings. The features like airbags, stability control, and anti-lock brakes should also be there.
