2020 Toyota Sienna - Perfect ride for the family trip

1. Interior highlights of Toyota Sienna 2020

A car’s interior says a lot about not just the car but also the automaker. Going by this, one could say that Toyota could have done a better job especially in regard to its choice of materials for interior design. If one did not know better, one would think that the automaker had a thing for cheap plastics as portrayed in the interior of the model.

But if you are not all about aesthetics, you will find the interior relaxing as it offers good space for people of all ages and body sizes. You will find a rear-seat entertainment system that can be dropped down and second-row captain chairs.


There is adequate legroom for both driver and passengers

The all-wheel model accommodates seven people while the front-wheel-drive accommodates up to eight people, thanks to its foldable seat positioned in the center. All variants of the Sienna come with the automaker’s simple Entune infotainment system as well as five USB ports. Amazon Alexa integration and Apple CarPlay are offered as standard features in the Sienna in addition to Android Auto, optional rear-seat entertainment and mobile hotspot.

2. Engine performance & fuel economy of Toyota Sienna 2020

The 2020 Toyota Sienna is suitable for family rides. Taking the kids out to the park on weekends is easy especially with the eight-speed automatic transmission and 296-hp V-6 of the Sienna. Although there may be an acceleration of engine noise when the liberal throttle is applied, it is far from being coarse.

The eight-speed gearbox may not be so charged when driven around town, and maybe predictable on the expressway, it is not quick to downshift when the throttle is applied. The all-wheel-drive system offered belongs to an exclusive class, and it offers users high-end security especially in inclement weather.


The 2020 Toyota Sienna has a better handling than the Odyssey

If you like to indulge in sleeping tots and family karaoke contests, you can enjoy them even more, thanks to the ride of the Sienna on smooth grounds. The steering of the Sienna is very free and relaxed. Drivers can turn up to 90 degrees easily when driving around town – this is better than the steering of Pacifica and Odyssey. You will find a returned steering set up and an exclusive sport suspension in the Sienna SE, but they have little impact on the dynamics of the van.

Fuel economy is an important factor to every car owner because cars literally can’t survive without fuel unless, of course, they are electric hybrids. The Sienna 2020’s fuel economy can be described as decent with 19 mpg city, 26 highway, and 21 combined. However, the Odyssey and Pacifica rate higher in terms of the highway.

3. Safety features of Toyota Sienna 2020

You have to give it to the Sienna in terms of safety. It is no surprise that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave it five stars. It boasts of several driver assistance features which include the following:

  • Standard lane-keeping assist
  • Standard automated emergency braking
  • Standard adaptive cruise control
  • Lane-keeping assist
  • Automated emergency braking

With those features listed, the Sienna 2020 gives a high sense of safety behind the wheel
