When it comes to minivans, there's a lot to be said for the Toyota Sienna. Indeed, it won the most recent autoTRADER minivan comparison test thanks to its combination of roomy and comfortable interior, low step-in height, extra-wide rear sliding doors, potent and willing powertrain, decent handling and reasonable pricing. And that's before factorin
Toyota hit the ground running in New York this year; first there was the reveal of the surprisingly cool FT-4X Concept off-roader, which gave a tantalizing mix of classic styling with a hip outdoorsy vibe.
The real additions for 2018 come in the form of connectivity and infotainment
Next came the arrival of a more down-to-earth model, a
Toyota's Sienna has long duked it out with Honda's Odyssey over which is the best mini-van. Sure, in Canada Chrysler's Grand Caravan typically sells four times as many vans, but rarely will you find someone who will argue in favour of the Grand Caravan's superiority. It's a value proposition and there's plenty of demand for that. But when it comes
The Toyota Sienna is a worthy used minivan buy for active families, couples, or anyone after plenty of space for the buck.
With heaps of room, top safety scores, proven short- and long-term value, a reputation for reliability, and the backing of decades of experience with minivans, the Toy
Along with the keys to this fully loaded minivan, the lovely people at Toyota helpfully included a booklet outlining all the various different safety systems it had. “That’s nice,” I thought, and tucked the brochure in the glovebox before heading for the mountains, shutting off the traction control, and doing huge, wonderful, drifty doughnuts in th
Tiny, Ontario – It’s the annual trip to a rented cottage with friends, and though the drive itself doesn’t usually surpass two hours, the headaches that result often do. And often the ultimate litmus test for the family vehicle, the one in which you decide you really need – or could use for such trips – a larger vehicle.
Granted, calling it t
Anyone old enough to be interested in minivan ownership will doubtless remember feeding quarters into an arcade machine proudly emblazoned with the words “Sega Rally”. A touchstone from the golden age of arcade games, Sega Rally featured real steering wheels and pedals, side-by-side racing action, and a pretty exiting Toyota.
The Toyota Sienna gets some new standard technology and safety features for 2018, along with a slight price increase.
Now on sale, the base seven-passenger Sienna has a starting price of $34,690, a $1,000 increase over 2017.
The LE eight-passenger is priced at $38,090 (a $1,075 increase), the SE eight-passenger goes for $41,590 ($1,085 more
Toyota has announced pricing for the 2019 Sienna minivan, whose base MSRP rises $455 but now includes the Apple CarPlay smartphone integration platform as a standard feature.
Also new to Toyota's family mover is an AWD option for the SE trim; previously, only the mid-grade LE could be fitted with four-wheel traction. The SE now also comes standa
Toyota is bringing refreshed versions of one of their smallest and one of their largest vehicles to the New York International Auto Show next month. The 2018 Toyota Sienna gets new styling, more safety, and a new infotainment system. The 2018 Yaris hatch gets a new front fascia and revised rear sculpting, plus new gauges and better stereos.

We at autoTRADER.ca have a lot of secret love for minivans, and so decided to gather a herd of them. For science.
Minivans are the Swiss Army knife of the automotive world. It’s a market that may be small in model choices but big both in on-road
IIHS minivan crash testing showed mixed results on the passenger side. They did generally perform better than the midsize SUV test from the spring, though there were still some "structural deficiencies on the right side that still need addressing."
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety is an independent insurance-industry funded organizat
A minivan may not be the vehicle you think you want, but it’s probably the one you need.
Where the Odyssey smashes it out of the park is in safety.
The pull of practicality over style is keeping the segment alive, which is what’s motivating Honda to pull a Monty Python – “It’s not dead!” – and continue banking on the box on wheels by re
The Dodge Grand Caravan television advert makes a bold claim: 81 seating configurations. “That seems far-fetched,” I thought.
I know for a fact there is not a single Ikea box you can’t put in a Grand Caravan.
Then I started counting: Front two/middle-row left/rear 60/40 up, front two/middle row two/rear 40 up…. I got to 78 different con
They say every high-performance athlete has an ultimate vision that helps drive them: scoring in overtime in the Stanley Cup finals, the game-winning swing in the World Series, a triumphant national anthem at the Olympics. It’s a vision that encapsulates years of tireless training, refinement, and planning for ultimate performance at exactly the ri
