Top Safety Pick
Toyota's new Panorama backup camera feed...offers an industry-first 180-degree view of what's behind the vehicle. It makes backing up and parking both easier and safer, with handy guidelines and steering-based projections projected on the screen to help you slot in perfectly.
The second row's seat belt fit my 9-year-old well, but my tall 7-year-old needed a booster seat for the seat belt to fit him correctly. Oddly, he didn't need it in the third row, which quickly became his preferred seat.
The 2011 Toyota Sienna hasn't been crash-tested by the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration). The IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) has awarded it the Top Safety Pick designation, which is why we've given it a safety score of 10.
Electronic stability control and anti-lock brakes are standard on every grade of the 2011 Toyota Sienna, as are front side airbags and side curtain bags covering all three seating rows, as well as a driver-side knee airbag.
A pre-collision protection system that preps the car for an imminent accident is offered on higher-level trims, as is dynamic cruise control.
Visibility is excellent in the Sienna, and its available rearview camera offers a 180-degree view.
The 2011 Sienna's an IIHS Top Safety Pick, with all the latest safety tech.
