Expert Quotes:

Second- and third-row passengers can also enjoy an optional 16.4-inch dual-view LCD screen that unfolds from the headliner while dropping jaws. It can display two separate signals side-by-side or one single standard or widescreen program. Despite its large size, it doesn't block the driver's view out the back – we checked.

the options list for this version rivals that of European luxury sedans (think dual-view entertainment center, panorama backup camera, radar cruise-control, front and rear parking sonar, dual moonroofs, navigation system with XM NavTraffic and 10-speaker JBL sound system).
Los Angeles Times

Unlike the Chrysler minivans, however, Toyota does not offer satellite television.

The power liftgate makes loading cargo as easy as loading the kids into the minivan.

...All Siennas now ride on alloy wheels (bye bye plastic-disguised steelies) and all enjoy three-zone (dual front plus aft passeneger) air conditioning across the board.

The 2011 Toyota Sienna's interior is rich on features, including standard dual sliding doors and the folding third-row seats on all models; power windows for the front side and sliding side doors; remote keyless entry; cruise control; AM/FM/CD player with an auxiliary jack; three-zone climate control; and a telescoping/tilting steering wheel.

The LE adds power sliding doors and roof rails; steering-wheel controls for audio and phone; a center console; sunshades; and a cargo bin for the second-row seat.

The SE gets sport trim; a new grille; 19-inch tires; LED taillights and halogen headlights; and a leather-trimmed steering wheel.

The XLE adds a power rear tailgate; a power sunroof; 17-inch wheels; a towing package; an LCD information display; wood-grain trim; heated front seats; and removable second-row captain's chairs.

The Limited gets a dual sunroof; overhead console; a sliding center console; second-row "lounge seats" and a power-folding third-row seat, as well as a JBL audio system with USB connectivity, Bluetooth stereo audio and a six-disc CD changer. We've had trouble connecting iPhones to the various Bluetooth stereo-equipped vehicles just hitting the market, but ran into no problems with the Sienna.

Options on various models include DVD navigation; a Dual View rear-seat DVD entertainment system with an immense 16.4-inch wide pair of screens; and premium audio. Toyota demonstrated the widescreen effect with the latest Star Trek movie; trust us, you'll want it.

Conclusion

A widescreen display and Bluetooth notwithstanding, the Sienna is a step behind Chrysler's minivans in plug and play fun.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
