2019 Toyota Sienna Hybrid is an expected version of the famous model with a hybrid engine. Even though the buyers expected a hybrid vehicle in this class a long time ago, the manufacturer simply did not answer those expectations when making 2017 Toyota Sienna as petrol model only. That mistake is corrected this time with a hybrid version of the model which we have in front of us. However, a hybrid engine is not the only change in this vehicle, since the manufacturer upgraded equipment in the cabin and improved design of the car.
There are no many changes in the exterior design of 2019 Toyota Siena Hybrid as the last model had few important improvements in that field. There is the same trapezoidal mesh grille and thin LED front lights, with wide air intake on the bottom of the bumper. The rear end is cubic, allowing more tow space and higher roof, with an only small curve in the middle of the truck door, where are slightly redesigned rear lights. According to buyers, new Sienna looks more aggressive than before.
There are few interesting changes in the cabin of 2019 Toyota Sienna Hybrid from the last model. First of all, there is a 6.1-inch touchscreen as a standard and long list of equipment like Entune 3.0 infotainment system, Bluetooth, five USB ports and power lock and windows. In case that you are not satisfied with this offer, you always can choose a higher trim which includes lane departure warning, airbags, automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, stability control, automatic high beams and anti-lock brakes. The cabin is larger than before and could have seven and eight seats, depending on trim version.
As we said, this model comes with the electric unit, but it is always important which type of the petrol unit will be combined with an electric one. There are high chances that 2019 Toyota Sienna Hybrid will come with a 3.5-liter V6 petrol engine that produces 296 horsepower and 263 pound-feet of torque. Type of the electric unit is still not known. This engine comes with eight-speed automatic transmission and could be a front or all-wheel driving vehicle. Measured fuel consumption is around 24 mpg highway and 18 mpg city driving, meaning 24 mpg combined.
2019 Toyota Sienna Hybrid Release Date and Price
As the current model costs around $30,000, we expect that 2019 Toyota Sienna Hybrid could have a higher price as the electric and hybrid cars are always more expensive. However, the competitor of the model should be Honda Odyssey, Kia Sedona, Chrysler Pacifica and Dodge Grand Caravan.
