The new 2017 Toyota Sienna is more than your typical minivan. This vehicle has all-wheel drive and some of the best safety enhancements in the industry. It is the perfect family car. It is especially great for family camping trips because it can carry all of our gear and we can take it a bit off road to unload our rather large tent and coolers. The power liftgate makes it super easy to unpack.
2017 Toyota Sienna is Made for Family
Toyota has tried to make family road trips easier with the Sienna. The car is equipped with four latch locations for securing child seats. It also has the Driver Easy Speak option that reduces the need to shout from the front seat to be heard in the back. This is achieved by using the microphone from the Sienna’s voice-command multi-media system.
The Dual-View Entertainment Center features two displays within a 16.4-inch widescreen image. It combines Blu-Ray capability, HDMI input, and an SD card reader that can play 10 different audio and video formats from two separate sources. The screen is visible from the third row of the van. It can be operated from any seat using the remote control mechanism. Wireless headphones are an option.
The third row seat can be stowed away and the second row seat can be removed, providing the Sienna with up to 150 cubic feet of available cargo space. There are numerous storage areas and bins, as well as cup holders located throughout the cabin. The second-row seats can slide all the way to the rear to create a walk-in aisle, making it easier to enter and exit the van.
