Meet the Completely Redesigned 2011 Toyota Sienna – Minivan Driving Gets Great in 2010!

With Toyota’s well-documented throttle recall problems of late, you are likely undecided about buying a Toyota. In fact, the 2010 Toyota Sienna itself faced a recall due to a possible corrosion problem on the spare tire carrier wire. What you may not know is that the new 2011 Toyota Sienna was unaffected by any of these issues and is, in fact, the first fully redesigned Sienna in seven years. Plus, it comes standard with Toyota’s Star Safety system and since Toyota is working so hard and spending a million dollars an hour on research to improve its image, safety won’t be something you need to worry too much about regarding your vehicles. But is the 2011 Toyota Sienna right for you and your family?

For starters, the exterior of the 2011 Sienna has been completely redesigned. The new SE model is especially stylish, featuring 19 “alloy wheels and Altezza taillights. A 2.7-liter 4-cylinder engine now comes standard on base and LE models with an impressive economy rating of 19 mpg city and 26 mpg highway fuel. For those who prefer power over economy, the 265-horsepower 3.5L V6 is still an option, but offers slightly lower fuel economy. Plus, The Sienna now comes with a 6-speed automatic transmission and remains the only minivan with available All Wheel Drive (AWD). The two most exciting features, however, are the second-row sliding seats with reclining seats (nicknamed “Lounge Seating “) and the Dual View Entertainment Center that lets you play two videos at the same time. Other notable features include power windows, rear sliding doors, a smart key system. Keyless feature with push button start, antilock brakes, stability and traction control and a full set of airbags. These features come standard on all models. The best part is the price: The basic LE version starts at less than $ 25,000, which is about $ 2,000 less than the Honda Odyssey.

With all of the Sienna’s great new features and a very affordable tag price, it would be foolish not to at least consider the Sienna as its primary family vehicle. And with all the great deals Toyota has currently underway, now might be the best time to buy a Toyota.
