The 2011 Toyota Sienna has been completely redesigned for the 2011 model year, making this model far better than before. The new Sienna takes on the Honda Odyssey in dynamics and comfort, while losing the bland styling that marked the previous Sienna. The first change most will notice on the 2011 Sienna is the revised exterior, and inside the interior is all new too. New for 2011 is the sporty SE model that's only available in FWD with V6 power.
The Sienna is available as a base, LE, SE, XLE, and Limited, with the base and LE models available with four cylinder or V6 engines. The XLE, Limited, and SE models come only with the V6. There are two engines available on the 2011 Sienna. The base engine is a 2.7-liter four cylinder that makes 187 horsepower, which n EPA estimates of 19 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway. The other engine is a 3.5-liter V6 that makes 266 horsepower that can achieve 18 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway.
The exterior of the 2011 Sienna is the first thing that'll catch the eye. Changes include new swoopy lines and fender flares that give the Sienna a muscular and shapely appearance that's much welcomed. The interior of the 2011 Sienna has a lot of goodies built into it. In contrast to most SUVs, the Sienna has good reviews for its third row seat. The base model comes with the basics that include manual seats, air conditioning, and a stereo. The higher up you go, the better the features. The cargo space in the Sienna is about average for a minivan.
While most competitors have second row seats that fold into the floor; on the Sienna you have to remove and store the second row seats to get maximum cargo space.
