Toyota Sienta Shows How A Compact MPV Can Be Stylish
Here is a compact MPV with an active, sporty exterior and interior design with excellent utility for 7 people when needed of just a 5 seater with plenty of luggage room. With its 1.5-liter engine, the Sienta can achieve a fuel economy of 20.6 km/L and this sets a standard for vehicles in this segment.
Compact MPVs have long been considered the domain of a certain type of user. Now, Toyota is set to flip this perennial suburban script with the all-new Toyota Sienta. The model has been redesigned from the ground up as an affordable option for those that need to ferry the kids and their friends around after school but also want to move their mountain bike or camping gear for weekend excitement and exercise.
With a sporty exterior design inspired by the shape of a trekking shoe, the new Sienta wants to inspire people to get out and about by overturning existing preconceptions of typically square, box-like minivans, while maintaining a functional and high-quality interior.
Compact yet featuring comfortable three-row seating, the interior maximizes cabin space with a flat, low floor. This, in addition to the wide 3.3-meter-high sliding door that opens all the way to the third row, makes getting in and out effortless for both kids and adults. Combining reliable utility with on-the-go fun, Toyota’s genre-redefining Sienta is ready for big and small households as it clever interior works in many ways to suit many needs.
