2019 Toyota Sienna OVERVIEW

With the ability to carry seven or eight passengers, Toyota’s evergreen Sienna has been on sale in its current form since 2010. Majoring on value and passenger comfort, the 2019 Toyota Sienna is the only minivan on sale in America with all-wheel drive as an option.

What's New for 2019

The 2019 Sienna is mechanically unchanged, and trim levels remain the same. However, Amazon Alexa and Apple CarPlay compatibility now come as standard across the range.

Choosing Your Toyota Sienna

Every Sienna is powered by the same 3.5-liter gas engine, producing 296 horsepower and 263 pound-feet of torque. An eight-speed automatic transmission supplies power to the front wheels as standard, though all-wheel drive is available on SE trims and above. It’s fitted as standard to flagship Limited models, dropping fuel economy to an EPA-estimated 18 miles per gallon city, 24 mpg highway, and 20 combined. By contrast, front-wheel-drive Siennas return 19/27/22 mpg (city/highway/combined).

Cabin flexibility is one of the Sienna’s main attractions. Most models can be configured as a seven- or eight-seater, though base L and range-topping Limited models are strictly for seven. LE and XLE models may be enhanced by a $6,000 Auto Access Seat option for passengers with disabilities. This second-row bucket seat rotates 90 degrees and slides out of the vehicle at an appropriate height for mobility-restricted passengers to access. Boasting a lift capacity of 330 pounds, the Auto Access Seat may be controlled wirelessly.


The Sienna L starts at $32,160, with all prices including the $1,045 delivery and processing fee. It’s surprisingly well equipped, with auto lights and powered mirrors plus a windshield wiper de-icer and three-zone climate control. Safety features include eight airbags, pre-collision protection and pedestrian detection, lane departure warning with steering assistance, and adaptive cruise control. A rearview camera displays on the 7.0-inch Entune infotainment screen, which may also be used to channel the driver’s voice to rear passengers through the speakers.

There are no packages available on the L, meaning the only available options are aftermarket accessories like the $239 inclusion of all-weather floor liners and door sill protectors.


Retailing for $34,980, the LE is the first model available with all-wheel drive for a $2,540 premium, bringing its price up to $37,520. It’s important to note AWD reduces the standard seating configuration from eight to seven on every Sienna. LE trims gain an HD satellite radio, an eight-way power adjustable driver’s seat, and rear passenger sunshades, while the exterior is distinguished by 18-inch alloy wheels and color-keyed heated power mirrors. Powered sliding side doors make access far easier – speaking of which, Auto Access Seat is available on this model.

It’s possible to equip this model with the LE Preferred Package ($955), which combines blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert with push-button start and remote illuminated entry. Otherwise, only aftermarket accessories are available.


For $39,160, front-wheel-drive SE models ride on 19-inch six-spoke alloy wheels, while $40,665 AWD models sit on 18-inch wheels. Every SE is characterized by smoked projector headlights and daytime running lights flanking a mesh grille, while chrome door handles and a power liftgate are other notable external flourishes. The front seats are clad in perforated heated leather, and the 4.2-inch TFT instrument cluster gets sports instrumentation. The Power Tilt/Slide Moonroof with Sunshade Package ($850) is required on SE models. The SE Preferred Package ($3,815) included blind-spot monitroing, rear cross-traffic alert, rear park assist, keyless entry, push button start, chrome exterior touches, a moonroof, and an upgraded Entune audio system with navigation.

The Sienna SE Premium starts at $44,405, making it $5,245 more than the regular SE. This model adds everything found in the SE Preferred Package, front leather seats, a dual-view rear entertainment center with a 16.4-inch display, an HDMI port, a Blu-ray player, and streaming capability.


Going up to XLE trim costs $38,310 for front-wheel drive, or $42,150 for all-wheel drive. There are blind-spot warning indicators in the heated and color-keyed outside mirrors, while chrome outside handles have touch-sensor locking and unlocking. The front seats and telescopic steering wheel are leather trimmed, and a smart key facilitates a push button starter. Buyers can equip this model with the XLE Navigation Package ($1,410). This provides rear parking sonar and dynamic navigation through the dashboard’s seven-inch touchscreen.

The XLE Premium starts at $42,000, which is $3,690 over the regular XLE. It brings the same features as the SE Premium, including the rear entertainment center, navigation, and upgraded audio system.


As the flagship Sienna model, the Limited starts at $45,055. It’s only available with a seven-seat cabin with leather-trimmed second-row captain's chairs, but buyers still have a choice of front- or all-wheel drive. The front seats are clad in premium leather, while the steering wheel’s leather is heated. Front and rear parking assist sonar comes as standard; the power memory outside mirrors are heated and fitted with blind-spot warning indicators. There are no packages available.

The Limited Premium starts at $48,575 and adds a surround-view camera system and a tilt/telescopic steering wheel over the regular Limited.

CarsDirect Tip

Minivan buyers expect features like a power liftgate and heated front seats, which makes the 2019 Toyota Sienna SE trim look tempting. The Premium models seem very expensive, and are best avoided unless the rear seat entertainment system is essential for rear passengers on long journeys.
