Features

While Chrysler continues to offer minivans priced with strong value in mind, Toyota's Sienna aims at a richer slice of the market, one with more features and a price tag that starts at about $27,000 this year.

For that, the base Sienna comes with a good list of standard equipment, including three rows of seating, with a fold-away third-row seat and side doors that slide manually; power windows, locks; and mirrors; three-zone air conditioning; remote keyless entry; a tilt/telescoping steering wheel; and an AM/FM/CD player with an auxiliary jack.

Big LCD screens and lounge seats transform the Sienna into a plush family wagon, if it isn't quite as feature-laden as the Chrysler minivans.

The Sienna LE has added some of the equipment that had been standard in more expensive models last year. It now offers a USB port; Bluetooth with audio streaming; automatic climate control; power front seats; a power tailgate; power sliding side doors; a center console; sunshades for the rear seats; satellite radio; and steering-wheel audio and phone controls. The well-trimmed XLE gets leather upholstery; a sunroof; and heated front seats.

The mildly sporty Sienna SE has specific suspension tuning, and also gets 19-inch wheels; sport trim; LED taillights; and a leather-trimmed steering wheel.

At the most expensive end of the lineup, the Sienna Limited takes the XLE's features and adds 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.

Options on various models include DVD navigation, with Toyota's Entune mobile-app connectivity suite; a Dual View rear-seat DVD entertainment system with an immense 16.4-inch wide pair of screens; and premium audio. On a recent drive, we watched the latest Star Trek movie on the Sienna's widescreen system; trust us, you'll want it.
