Updated Looks and Tech to Match the Updated Powertrain
For 2018, Toyota has fitted a new nose that brings its preeminent people mover’s styling more in line with the rest of the brand’s lineup. Noticeable changes include larger and reshaped grille openings. All Sienna models now get the flared side sills that were previously reserved for the sportier SE variant.
More important, though, is the addition of a host of new safety and technology features. Every Sienna now comes standard with automated emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, a lane-departure warning system that can automatically steer the van back into its lane, and automatic high-beam headlights. Additionally, all 2018 Siennas come equipped with Toyota’s latest Entune 3.0 multimedia interface and Toyota’s App Suite Connect, which offers an app-based navigation system. Entune is available in three grades, the lowest level of which is limited to the base Sienna L. Moving up to the LE, SE, and XLE trims brings Entune 3.0 Audio Plus to the table, which adds Wi-Fi connectivity that allows up to five devices to be connected to the van’s 4G LTE network. Finally, Entune 3.0 Premium comes standard on the top-of-the-line Limited (and is available on the SE and XLE), bringing an upgraded stereo and an in-dash navigation system that can continuously update its map to account for the latest geographical changes and route information. Other small updates to the Sienna include an available surround-view monitor on Limited models equipped with the Premium package and a rear-seat entertainment system now capable of streaming video from Android devices.
