2012 Toyota Sienna Features

Features

Toyota's made a conscious decision to steer clear of the least profitable end of the minivan market, which means all versions are priced from at least the high-$20,000 range, and offer a good deal of standard equipment.

That equipment list includes a folding third-row seat and sliding side doors; power features and cruise control; three-zone climate control; a tilt/telescoping steering wheel; remote keyless entry; and an AM/FM/CD player with an auxiliary jack. Stepping up to LE models adds on sunshades; a center console; steering-wheel audio and phone controls; and power sliding side doors. SE Siennas have 19-inch wheels; LED taillights; sport trim; and a leather-trimmed steering wheel. The well-trimmed XLE gets a power front passenger seat; a sunroof; a power tailgate; heated front seats; and second-row captain's chairs that we rave about in the Quality section.

It lacks some of the ultimate minivan features found over at Chrysler, but we're big fans of the Sienna's big LCD screen and its first-class, second-row seats.
The Sienna Limited is the top of the lineup, and it 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.
