Toyota swung and missed in the minivan sector with its previous two renditions – the Previa and Toyota Van – but the follow up to those two, the Sienna, has been a grand slam to date. The Sienna took over for the Previa in 1993, making the 2013 model year its 20th in production.
The 2013 model year is aesthetically a carryover from the 2012 model year. Under the skin, however, Toyota has dropped the base four-cylinder engine, leaving the 266-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 engine as the only option. Additionally, the 2013 Sienna adds some extra standard features to each trim level.
The 2013 Sienna L V6 7 Passenger trim level is the base level for the Sienna minivan and it comes with the most basic features you would expect in a minivan and a few premium features. On the outside, it includes projector-beam halogen headlights for optimal nighttime vision, black front grille and outside mirrors to help keep the cost as low as possible, dual sliding doors for easy access and 17-inch alloy wheels for a little bit of style. On the inside , it includes three-zone A/C for added comfort, an AM/FM/CD/MP3/WMA/SiriusXM audio system with four speakers for entertainment, seven-passenger seating with two captain’s chairs for optimal seating comfort, and power windows and door locks for added convenience.
The LE V6 8 Passenger trim level on the 2013 Sienna takes the features from the L V6 7-Passenger trim level and adds to it. On the outside, this trim level adds in a chrome surround to the black grille for a little extra style, color-keyed side-view mirrors and door handles for a seamless transition from the body, power sliding doors for easy opening and closing, tinted rear windows for added privacy, and roof rails to allow roof-top cargo. Inside the Sienna, this trim level adds in auto climate control for maintaining the perfect cabin temperature, an eight-way power driver seat for quick repositioning, a six-speaker audio system for more enjoyable listening, 3.5-inch TFT screen with rearview camera for added safety when reversing, and a second-row bench for eight-passenger seating.
The LE V6 7 Passenger trim level for the 2013 Toyota Sienna starts off by substituting all-wheel drive in place of the standard front-wheel-drive setup. On the outside, the LE V6 7 Passenger trim level adds in 18-inch wheels with 235/55R18 tires for some added styling, but the rest of the exterior carries over from the LE V6 8-Passenger trim level. Inside the cabin, this trim level deletes the second-row bench and adds in a pair of captain chairs for added comfort, which reduces the seating capacity to seven people, an eight-way power driver seat for easy seat adjustments, and it adds in a cargo-area storage compartment. Other than those two changes, the interior remains the same as the LE V6 8-Passenger trim level.
