Automotive Editor -

It’s been a while since the Toyota Sienna saw a redesign, but it’s still a capable (and popular) minivan. The 2018 model brings some technology and safety upgrades along with a few cosmetic tweaks. A huge range of prices and features are available, which mean the Sienna can be everything from a budget buy to a tech-savvy palace.

What's New for 2018

While the innards remain the same, the 2018 Sienna gets a few styling changes that bring it more in line with the rest of Toyota’s models. The nose features an enlarged lower grill, and the sculpted gills formerly found on the SE trim are now standard on all models.

Internally, the cabin is now supposedly quieter, and all trims launch with new infotainment systems. 4G LTE wifi is now an option, plus a handful of USB ports and streaming capabilities on relevant models arrive for 2018. Perhaps most significantly, all models now come standard with Toyota’s “Safety Sense P” package, which includes pedestrian detection, lane departure alert, automatic high beams, adaptive cruise control, and automatic emergency braking.

Choosing Your Toyota Sienna

Powering every Sienna is Toyota’s 3.5-liter V6 engine, which puts down 296 horsepower and 263 pound-feet of torque via an eight-speed automatic transmission. The engine is new to the Sienna as of 2017, and it brought welcome increases in both acceleration and fuel efficiency.

The Sienna also remains the only minivan on the market to boast available all-wheel drive. Go with the standard front-wheel drive, and the Sienna returns an EPA-estimated 19 miles per gallon city, 27 mpg highway, and 22 mpg combined. The all-wheel-drive variant drops to 18 city, 24 highway, and 20 combined.

The 2018 model retains its old trim structure, which ranges from basic to extremely luxurious.

L

At the cheapest end of the spectrum sits the Sienna L, which starts at $31,745 including the $995 destination charge.

This trim still includes all the essential features, notably the safety benefits and the seven-inch infotainment screen with Toyota’s newest Entune infotainment system. Also standard is a rearview backup camera and three-zone automatic climate control. This trim will only seat seven, and there are no optional packages to add.

LE

The LE trim begins at $34,655 and adds a few useful features.

On this trim buyers get fancier, easy-to-clean seats, heated mirrors, powered side doors, privacy glass on the rear windows, and sunshades for the second and third rows. There’s also an upgraded center console, extra USB ports (for charging), and a handful more cup holders.

The Sienna LE seats eight passengers unless you want it to be all-wheel drive, which is an option — it costs an extra $2,540 and also adds 18-inch alloy rims. Adding AWD is the only optional package available on the LE trim.

SE

Starting at $37,985, the sportier version of the Sienna boasts some premium options but also subtracts a few. 19-inch alloy wheels are now standard, as are exterior accents and a powered rear liftgate. The SE seats eight passengers in leatherette-trimmed seats, and the front two are now heated. All-wheel drive is no longer an option, and the heated side mirrors are now an optional extra.

At the SE level, Toyota introduces packages that buyers can decide between. For starters, a moonroof with a sunshade is available for an extra $850. The SE Preferred Package rings up at $2,835 and adds proximity entry, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, a loudspeaker – for when you really need to get the kids in order – and a seven-inch touchscreen running Entune with navigation.

SE Premium

The next step up is the SE Premium, which starts at $43,200 and adds a host of luxury options. On top of most of the gear from the SE Preferred Package, the SE Premium adds a moonroof, along with push-button start, and a 16.4-inch entertainment screen in the second row. Rather than fake leather, the SE Premium gets the real thing for its upholstery.

XLE

At $36,990, the XLE is the exact equal of the SE in price, but it’s intended to be a little more comfortable and a little less sporty. The rims are back to their 17-inch default, but the 18-inch alloys are again included with a step up to AWD. The heated leather seats stay, along with seating for eight, push-button start, and a leather-trimmed steering wheel.

The XLE's sole options pack is the $1,310 XLE Navigation Package. Beyond the obvious addition of navigation, it's roughly equal to the SE Preferred Package, adding blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, and a loudspeaker.

XLE Premium

For an additional $3,690, the XLE Premium adds in rear parking assist, a premium sound system, the driver loudspeaker, and the upgraded entertainment screen. There are no optional extras for this middle ground between the XLE and the Limited.

Limited

The Sienna Limited starts at $44,730 and pulls out all the stops. On the exterior, fancy 10-spoke 18-inch alloys replace the default rims, and LED running lights are standard as well. Fancier leather seats are universal, and a premium JBL sound system pairs with an upgraded infotainment package. Front and rear parking assist is included, as well as blind-spot warning indicators on the mirrors.

Limited Premium

For those who spare no expense, the Sienna Limited Premium adds in a heated steering wheel, a surround-view camera, a power liftgate, a panoramic sunroof, auto-leveling HID headlights with automatic high beams, the larger entertainment screen, rain-sensing windshield wipers, for a cost of $48,250.

CarsDirect Tip

Minivans are fundamentally about carrying people, and they often get a little beat up as a result. Because the main safety features are standard on all models, there’s no reason to go too crazy on the options unless you need the convenience. We think the LE trim is the sweet spot, and it still gives you the ability to add AWD if you need it.
