An all-new Sienna minivan debuted for 2004, and as such continues for 2005 with only minor alterations. It comes wrapped in sleek, but not excessively penned, exterior styling, includes a comfortable and highly functional interior and a long list of standard and available features you might otherwise find offered in a luxury sedan. These include a rear-view camera, front/rear proximity warnings, laser-guided cruise control, a DVD entertainment system, satellite navigation, and surround-sound audio. A 3.3-liter V-6 produces a peppy 230 horsepower and drives either the front or all four wheels (in AWD versions) via a five-speed automatic transmission. Anti-lock power brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution and brake assist come standard, with Vehicle Stability Control optional. Front side and side-curtain airbags are included on the top model, and are optional elsewhere in the line.Enlarge Photo
