About Toyota Sienna
The 2017 Sienna is available in five basic trim levels: L, LE, SE, XLE, and Limited. Premium editions of the SE, XLE, and Limited trims are also available, with extras like Driver Easy Speak and a rear-seat entertainment system. Each model includes a V6 engine and an automatic transmission. Some higher-level models are equipped with all-wheel drive rather than the standard front-wheel drive. If you need eight seats, avoid the base Sienna L and any all-wheel-drive models, which have only seven.
Every trim level comes standard with high-quality materials and useful features. The Sienna SE has a more athletic personality (with components like a sport-tuned suspension). Drivers with a sense of adventure will appreciate its more controlled body movements, but some may find the ride too stiff. The Sienna LE is one of the best values in the lineup. Upgrades such as dual-power sliding doors, an extra seat in the second row, a larger touch screen, and navigation significantly increase the minivan’s convenience without significantly increasing its price.
Toyota has a certified pre-owned program for vehicles that are six years or less old and have less than 85,000 miles. The initial sale date of the vehicle determines eligibility. Toyota offers a one-year/12,000-mile limited warranty on all certified pre-owned vehicles, and it extends the original new-car powertrain warranty to seven years or 100,000 miles from the original sale date. Hybrid components for 2020 and newer models are covered for eight years from the date of purchase or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first. Toyota CPO vehicles must pass a 160-point inspection.
The 2017 Sienna has a lower safety score in our rankings than competitors such as the Honda Odyssey due to its mixed crash test results. The Sienna received top marks in four of its five Insurance Institute for Highway Safety tests. In the fifth test, it received a second-place Acceptable score. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the Sienna a perfect five-star overall rating, as well as five stars in its side crash test. The Sienna, on the other hand, received four stars in the frontal crash and rollover tests.
Every 2017 Sienna comes standard with a rearview camera and brake assist (which adds extra stopping power during emergency braking). Some models may also include front and rear parking assist, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, a pre-collision system designed to prevent or limit the damage caused by a frontal collision, and Toyota’s Safety Connect (which includes emergency assistance, roadside assistance, and automatic collision notification).
