Spy Shots: 2010 Toyota Sienna

TheCarConnection.com's spies caught this disguised 2010 Toyota Sienna prototype testing in the desert.

The prototype appears to utilize most of the current Sienna's bodywork, so we initially thought it was facelift of the current Sienna.  But there are some very rough sections which seems to point to this as a mule for the next-generation Sienna. Judging from the construction and packaging of this prototype, it would appear that Toyota product planners are content to stay with a package similar to the current Sienna, with all of its traditional minivan cues.

While many other automakers are bailing from the minivan product segment with line-blurring crossovers, it looks as if Toyota will stand toe-to-toe with Honda and Chrysler to slug it out for the attention of soccer moms everywhere.  Given the minimal changes visible to overall architecture of this mule, our best sense is that Toyota may be sticking with the current Sienna's platform, albeit with significant updates, in order to save costs.--KGP Photography

  1. I believe the biggest news in the 2010 model year is going to be the hybrid drive. It's the best minivan period.

    Bad stuff?

  2. The best minivan, by far, is the Honda Odyssey.
    These pics of the sienna, as most spy pics, are worthless.
    Just tell us what is the MPG and the Price.

  3. MPG and Price are deciding factors

  4. Consumer Reports rate the Sienna higher than Odyssey. Aside from value, better technology, real-life MPG and power, Siennas come with 4WD and real 8 seats if needed. Throw your bias aside, what makes Honda "far" better than Toyota (2008 and newer)? Hybrid option in 2010 will leave everyone in the dust.

  5. Minivans are dead just like SUVs. The next generation of MPVs will like the new Mazda 5 (small wagon with sliding doors).
    Once again Toyota delivers a plain boring vehicle that doesn't inspire not even their prime target (soccer moms)
    It looks old and outdated already, just like the Camry and Corolla.

  6. JKD, Consumer reports is a good source, but it is only a guide. Define what better technology means. "Real-life MPG?" So you have done an unscientific experiment and determined the MPG of both vehicles in real life situations? Not saying that the Odyssey is a better minivan, but you seem to be showing a bias of your own. Hybrid = increased cost. Most people wont drive far enough for fuel savings to even match the increased cost.

  8. I have a 1992 Previa with 175,000 miles and no problems at all. I'll buy another Toyota when I decide I need a new van, which may be a while. Put a sophisticated tranny in it and let's see how high we can get the mpg. Better yet, bring us the JDM hybrid van they already make. And give us a real "sport" suspension option. It doesn't have to look any different.

  9. re: Will
    u seriously comparing Mazda w/ Toyota & Honda? that's a ford-owned company brah (until further notice). if you're even familiar with the auto industry, toyota and honda are 900lb gorillas in their industry.
    mazda is small fry. as for your suggested mazda 5, its size alone is already compromised. the key word: MINIVAN. if i wanted small & cramped, i'd consider a compact.
    AND once toyota's hybrid and Honda's clean diesel technologies bear fruit, it's lights out in terms of MPGs.

  10. I am a little of a soccer mom, but is not there where I find the value of my Toyota Sienna (2nd to own in 11 years). Don't know about technicalities (mg,hybrid,etc.) and don't care for the looks. I have 4 captain chairs for my family of 4 and in long trips we fit everything inside the van - including 2 coolers, 3 bikes, ski gear, tons of food. Never had the need to use the roof rack. Very easy to get in and out, not like SUVs. Sit perfectly 7 adults and still have lots of space in the back... not like most SUVs. The interior is high quality leather, not the plastic feeling of the Honda cars. My top brands are Toyota and Hoda, but Toyota delivers much more quality and detail in the interior and have much more cargo space. My two main factors in deciding about a car. For the rest my husband do the job and he always comes with Toyota on top too.

  11. My husband and I went to purchase a minivan in June 2006 after driving a Ford Expedition for 5 years. I was completely settled on the Honda Oddessey, my husband didn't care, he wanted to buy another SUV and swore he'd never drive a minivan. So, after test driving the Honda which was fine, we decided to test drive the Toyota Sienna as well, just to check out the difference. The Sienna drove much smoother and my husband fell in love with the vehicle right there and we bought it. The ride in the Sienna is hands down much better than the Oddessey. I do prefer the Honda's exterior over the Sienna but the ride and interior comfort of the Sienna is what sold us. By the way, my husband loves to drive my van! It's now 2 1/2 years old and still feels new and have had no problems with the vehicle!
