The current version of this minivan might be one of the oldest models in class, but it’s definitely doing pretty well on the market, even today when the competition is getting tougher. Despite the fact that this is still a competitive model, the company works on the next-generation model and it looks like the 2020 Toyota Sienna will come completely new. This model will represent the fourth generation of the minivan that has been around for more than two decades. Expect lots of improvements, in various aspects, including better driving quality, more comfort, better efficiency etc.
- Completely redesigned
- Powerful engine, available all-wheel drive
- Spacious cabin and cargo area
- Upscale interior
- High price tag
This redesign is about to bring a lot of novelties. Of course, the most important will be a new platform. Just like the rest of the company’s lineup, the 2020 Toyota Sienna will also ride on a new TNGA architecture. So, expect significant improvement in areas like driving dynamics and overall driving experience. The new model should keep similar proportions, though a use of new materials will definitely provide some weight savings. Finally, count on a new styling. The current model has been refreshed for a couple of time, but this redesign will adapt the minivan to the brand’s newest design language, which will make the vehicle more attractive to potential buyers.
Minivans are pretty much all about interior design, so it’s no wonder that even the current model, which dates from 2010, still features a fresh-looking cabin. The new 2020 Toyota Sienna will improve it even more. This means you can count on even better materials quality and even more equipment. In terms of the base layer, the new cabin won’t go far away from the current one. Base models will feature capacity for 8 passengers, while higher trims will come with second-row captain’s chairs, with reduced capacity to 7. Plenty of legroom and generous cargo area will continue to be some of the Sienna’s strongest points.
In this aspect, the Sienna is among class leaders. It may be older but still offers the most powerful engine in the class. It is a 3.5-liter V6, which is good for about 295 horsepower. Besides plenty of power, it also offers pretty good fuel economy, which goes around 19 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. Another important thing to mention is the fact that this is the only minivan that offers all-wheel drive. Considering all these characteristics, the 2020 Toyota Sienna will most likely come with only mild upgrades. A hybrid version is also possible. This version will probably come with a powertrain similar to the new Camry Hybrid, which is characterized by exceptional fuel economy.
2020 Toyota Sienna Release Date and Price
We expect to see 2020 Toyota Sienna sometime in the second half of the next year. It shouldn’t feature bigger changes in price compared to the current model, which goes in a range between $31,000 and $49,000, roughly.
