Safety

While not a standout in safety, the 2008 Toyota Sienna still possesses more than enough active and passive safety to easily recommend it for family transportation.

Describing its safety repertoire as “typical for this class,” Car and Driver lists the notable active safety features as “ABS with electronic brake force distribution and brake assist, as well as a stability control system incorporating traction control.” They continue, “passive features include two-stage front airbags, front seat side airbags, and curtain airbags for all three rows.”

Solid crash-test results and Toyota’s usual bevy of active safety features mean the 2008 Toyota Sienna is resistant to accidents and injury.

Edmunds notes, “The XLE Limited also comes with front and rear park assist, while rear park assist is available on LE and XLE trims. If you opt for the navigation system, you'll also get a handy rearview camera.”

Regarding the Sienna's performance in tests by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, Edmunds reports “the 2008 Toyota Sienna earned four stars (out of five) for driver protection in frontal impacts and five stars for the front passenger. It also received five stars across the board for side-impact crash protection. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave Toyota's minivan a ‘Good’ rating (its highest) for its performance in both frontal-offset and side-impact crash tests.”
