For 2015, Toyota has revisited the Sienna's exterior and interior to breathe a little life into the minivan. The overall shape is about the same, as it has to be to each the goal of spacious family hauling, with the details tweaked to keep things just fresh enough. Once again, the Seinna's SE model is the sportiest option—among vans, anyway.
In front, LE, XLE, and Limited models get a new grille design, a finned affair that bridges the gap between new LED-DRL-equipped headlights for SE and Limited models. All models but the SE get new taillights with flowing interior elements, while the SE retains its clear lenses.
The Sienna is rated to tow up to 3,500 pounds, and itself weighs from 4,275 to 4,750 pounds. It's the only minivan to offer all-wheel drive, which accounts for the top end of that weight range.
The latest Sienna carries over a straightforward MacPherson front strut and independent rear suspension, although subtle tuning changes as well as new welds in the cowl area (said to increase torsional rigidity) should improve ride and refinement, as well as handling at the limit. Electronic power steering is a new arrival, and we found it to be just fine here in the way it loads up and tracks at highway speeds. While it's no sportscar, the Sienna has smooth ride motions and quick steering, making it nicely maneuverable in city driving.
In terms of overall dimensions and interior volume, the 2015 Toyota Sienna is one of the largest minivans you can buy, having grown slightly compared to the previous generation. While we thought the previous interior suffered a bit in richness, Toyota has revamped the materials for 2015, with the instrument panel actually newly contoured. And we think the result is quite good.
By the numbers, the Sienna rides on a 119.3-inch wheelbase, and is 200.2 inches long overall, and 78.2 inches wide. Total interior cargo volume: it's 150 cubic feet. That's big. It makes the Sienna an eight-passenger van with enough space for at least five adults, and a configurable cabin that has a fold-away third-row seat and a maneuverable second-row seat (or seats), though it lacks the fold-away second-row chairs found in Chrysler's minivans.
In front, the Sienna has supportive, comfortable seats with lots of head and leg room. Most versions have standard power front seats, too.
