The New Toyota Sienna MPV Is Hybrid

Toyota has introduced the fourth generation of the Sienna MPV. The new product is based on the TNGA-K platform, which is used by the current Highlander SUV as well.

The Sienna has also received a bolder design in the style of Toyota’s latest models. The new model is distinguished by cool headlights that seem to flow into the top of the tiny radiator grille finished with a chrome plated strip. At the rear end, there are sports taillights with a black built-in overlay, which improves aerodynamic characteristics, and a tailgate equipped with a built-in spoiler.

The main innovation of the MPV is the transition to a hybrid powertrain, consisting of a 2.5-liter four-cylinder petrol engine and an electric motor. The total power output is 243 hp. The Sienna is available with both RWD and FWD drivetrains. In the first case, the car gets an additional electric motor on the rear axle. The model has an 8-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission with intelligence (ECT-i). However, the Sienna does not include a charging function. The average fuel consumption is 7.1 liters per 100 km.
