What vehicle do you recommend for a growing family that is both roomy and safe?

SiennaFallWhen it comes to shuttling around families with maximum comfort and safety, there is no better vehicle than the Toyota Sienna. It has an impressive amount of style and technology. Toyota is devoted to safety and dependability, and proper vehicle maintenance is important to both. That’s why we include ToyotaCare, a no-cost maintenance plan with the purchase or lease of every new Toyota for two years or 25,000 miles, whichever comes first; and 24-hour roadside assistance is also included for two years, regardless of mileage.

U.S. News and World Report gave the highest ranking for mini-vans in 2015 to the Toyota Sienna. When it comes to safety, the most accurate and objective rankings are from the IIHS (Institute for Highway Safety) Highway Loss Data Institute and they ranked the Sienna a Top Safety Pick +. Edmunds.com praised the updated Sienna saying “ this mid-cycle refresh includes substantial improvements to the interior’s quality, ergonomics and design. Taken together this round of upgrades to the Toyota Sienna further elevates its position as one of our top-recommended minivans.”

Sienna comes standard with the Star Safety System™, a suite of six active safety features that include Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control, Traction Control, Anti-lock Brake System, Electronic Brake-force Distribution, Brake Assist and Smart Stop Technology. ® Sienna’s Automatic Locking Retractor seatbelts help you securely install child seats without the need for a locking clip.

For added safety, there are eight standard airbags and has a special radar to help determine if a frontal collision is imminent, and automatically applies the brakes and retracts the front seatbelts to help reduce the effects of a collision. Providing further protection in case you’re in an accident, the Sienna has side-impact door beams that help prevent vehicle intrusion into the cabin.

The Toyota Sienna adds even more features for 2016, including the Entune infotainment system that has been upgraded with Siri Eyes Free for iPhone users, while the Entune Audio Plus brings a low-cost navigation option to customers.

The 2016 Toyota Sienna is stylish and functional family transport, but is anything but boring. The narrow headlights and wide stance give the Sienna its distinctive look, while its low step-in height and generous proportions make it practical and flexible. If that isn’t good enough, the Sienna SE even has a sporty look with a lowered, sport-tuned suspension, 19-inch wheels, smoked headlights with LED daytime running lights and LED taillights. Inside the Sienna SE, Toyota adds more exclusive touches including sportier gauges and black leather seats.sienna-red-family-bikes

There’s nothing “mini” about this minivan. The versatile cabin features easy-to-use folding seats allowing the Sienna to quickly transform from an eight-passenger family transporter to a weekend hauler offering up to 150 cubic feet of cargo space. It may be a long vehicle but it is not hard for passengers to communicate from the driver to the rear seats. The cabin is extremely quiet and there is a unique system that uses a microphone and the audio system to amplify the voices of front occupants to rear passengers, so the children can’t pretend they didn’t hear you!

Running down the option list, the 2016 Toyota Sienna is in a class by itself when you consider that it is the only minivan still on the market offering the added convenience of all-wheel drive for safer winter driving. We do the work for you to compare Sienna to many other minivans. (Click here to learn more.)

Thanks to the 2016 Toyota Sienna, the days of the mundane minivan are over. Stop by Jaffarian Volvo Toyota Scion to see how much style, space and safety features the new Sienna offers, and be sure to take one for a test drive today.
