The Sienta was launched in September 2003 as a vehicle that combines the convenience of a minivan, with a spacious cabin and seating for seven passengers, into a compact body size. Each generation of the Sienta has provided solid support for family life by remaining consistently close to Japanese families and carrying a deep understanding of changing customer values from the very first generation. This consideration in design has earned driver loyalty and passenger admiration.

The development team once again considered customer feedback and tried to uncover their real hopes for the Sienta in developing this new model. The conclusion they reached was preserving the vehicle's easy-to-manage length, latest safety and security features, fuel economy, and affordable price while further refining the user-friendly cabin space preserved from the first generation. The team has ensured a cabin space that seven adults can ride in without changing the length and width, making it a better companion that matches customer lifestyles. The second-row seats, where most passengers sit, have been re-designed to provide more spacious rear seat space for both legroom and head clearance. In addition, the new Sienta adopts a revamped powertrain that achieves both fuel economy and driving performance through TNGA, as well as the latest safety and security features in support of family drives. The consideration that has been added to the new Sienta will bring smiles to the faces of the whole family.

Details of the new third-generation Sienta are as follows.

Interior color: Khaki; Model with options shown
  • Cabin height was increased by 20 mm*3 from previous models while maintaining an easy-to-manage length and maneuverability. In addition, a low horizontal belt line and upright side glass design create a spacious and open interior
  • UV-block and IR-block functions are available as Comfort Package*4 options for all windows around the cabin space, blocking IR and UV rays for a more comfortable space
  • A maximum of 1,000 mm, or +80 mm compared to previous models, of class*5-leading front/rear couple distance*6 has been achieved to improve second-row comfort. Shopping baskets can be conveniently placed under seats for everyday shopping*7.
  • A ceiling air circulator*8 has been installed for rear-seat comfort to efficiently circulate warm/cold air from the air conditioning unit to the rear seats, which eliminates the temperature difference between the front and rear seats
  • Sunshades for rear seats*9 have been installed on sliding doors

  • While maintaining the popular low 330 mm*10 floor height and stepless flat floor, the power sliding door*11 opening height has been expanded to 1,200 mm, +60 mm compared to previous models, to make it easier to get in and out of rear seats. All family members, from children to the elderly, can easily get in and out of the vehicle.
  • Equipped with hands-free dual power sliding doors*11. This enables users carrying the key to automatically open and close the sliding doors simply by placing their feet under the sensors at the bottom of the front doors. This is a very convenient feature when both hands.
  • The rear hatch door opening height has been increased by 15 mm compared to previous models. Luggage space height has also been increased by 20 mm compared to previous models, allowing for smoother loading and unloading. A bicycle with 27-inch tires can be loaded without the handlebars getting stuck in the opening*12, so, for example, parents can pick up their children with bicycles after cram school in a sudden rain storm.
  • In addition to the floor luggage space, the two-row five-seater model has expanded luggage space height by 50 mm compared to previous models, which was achieved by changing the tilt-down structure of the second-row seats to lower the height of the back of the seats when folded. The flat, large-capacity luggage space is ideal for active situations such as outdoor activities where a large amount of cargo is loaded.

  1. Advanced features for a safe, secure, comfortable, and convenient drive

Toyota Safety Sense

Toyota Safety Sense, the latest active safety package with advanced and improved functionality, is equipped as standard on all models. The range of accidents that can be responded to has been expanded to support safe driving further.

  • Pre-collision Safety System
    This system expands the detection range, adding motorcyclists (daytime), pedestrians, and cyclists to help avoid collisions or reduce damage. It provides additional support at intersections where accidents more frequently occur.
  • Proactive Driving Assist
    This system subtly assists drivers when driving on ordinary roads and in other situations. It supports avoidance steering and deceleration to avoid getting too close to pedestrians, cyclists, and parked vehicles by anticipating risks according to the driving situation, such as pedestrians crossing the road or vehicles that may suddenly start moving.

Toyota Teammate

Toyota Teammate
  • The new Sienta comes equipped with Advanced Park*15, a driving support technology function within Toyota Teammate. Besides support of all operations―steering, acceleration, braking, and gear changes―the bird's-eye view display also shows the ideal steering wheel positions for a safe and secure parking experience. This system expands support in parallel parking situations. In addition to backing in/forward exit from parking situations, it also supports forward entry/backing exit parking situations for improved ease of use when parking.

Software Update

  • Software updates enable the vehicle to always have the latest software version via wireless communication or a dealer's wired connection. While also adding new functions that become available after vehicle purchase, the updates can enhance vehicle performance. Installation of the latest driver-assistance technologies can help the vehicle evolve in terms of greater safety and peace of mind.

Comprehensive T-Connect optional services

  • Equipped with Connected Navigation*16-compatible Display Audio*17 system, enabling destination searches and route settings using new center-acquired data, including maps, facilities, and traffic congestion. A voice-recognition service (agent) can also set destinations in the system*18.
  • These new models also come with their own in-vehicle Wi-Fi hotspot, a first for Toyota. The DCM included as standard on all these models enables unlimited data transfer for smartphones, game devices, and other devices connected to the internet.

Other enhanced equipment for a safe, secure, comfortable, and convenient drive

  • Equipped with front and rear dash cams*19. Video captured by the Toyota Safety Sense's monocular camera and the newly added rear-facing camera while driving is recorded to built-in memory. For portability, video data can be played back on the Display Audio system or transferred to a smartphone or USB memory device.
  • Equipped with an AC100 V/1,500 W accessory power outlet*20. This not only allows the use of electrical products using the same electrical outlets found in the home but also enables the vehicle to be used as a power generator during blackouts and other times of emergency.
*15 Manufacturer option for the Z grade hybrid specification.
*16 This service is provided free of charge for five years from the first registration. Continued use from the sixth year after registration is possible through a paid contract renewal.
*17 8-inch display for Display Audio system (with Connected Navigation-compatible) is equipped as standard on all vehicles except for X grade, where it is a manufacturer option. 10.5-inch display and onboard navigation for Display Audio Plus (with Connected Navigation-compatible) is a manufacturer option on all vehicles except the X grade.
*18 When Connected Navigation is available. In addition to setting destinations, the agent can also be used to operate vehicle equipment, including air conditioning and power windows.
*19 Provided as a manufacturer option on all grades. The front dash cam is equipped as standard for the Z and G grades and is available as a manufacturer option for the X grade.
*20 Manufacturer option for all hybrid models.

  1. Earth-friendly and exceptional basic functions

Body and suspension

  • The platform that forms the vehicle's basic structure was newly designed based on the TNGA (GA-B) platform. The main structure is joined to form a ring-shaped frame, improving joint rigidity. The highly rigid body is light and well-balanced to deliver high-quality riding comfort and outstanding handling stability.
  • Handling stability, ride comfort, and quietness have been improved by using a high-damping type of structural adhesive for the vehicle's main structure and a portion of the mastic sealer used for the roof panel.
  • Front and rear suspension geometry has been optimized to produce a rigid body. With MacPherson struts at the front and torsion beam at the rear, a suspension system that creates gentle movement and a smooth ride with excellent road holding has been achieved.
  • The minimum turning radius is just 5.0 m, facilitating smooth maneuvers on narrow roads and in car parks.

Welcab models (specially equipped vehicles with factory-installed features for the disabled and elderly)

Wheelchair-adapted model Type III (With short ramp and second-row passenger-side seating) Available grades: X grade; 5-seater 2WD Gasoline model
Wheelchair-adapted model Type III (With short ramp and second-row passenger-side seating)
Available grades: X grade; 5-seater 2WD Gasoline model
  • In addition to further enhancing the lineup, the number of available grades has been expanded to include hybrid models, which are in high demand. Wheelchair-adapted models feature a simple structure for the entire process from boarding to securing the wheelchair in place, improving ease of operation significantly in response to the growing demand for home care in an aging society. In addition, the newly equipped Type III model has a short ramp and other new features. Opportunities to go outside have been increased by making improvements to address problems for welfare cabs and daycare transportation services.

Welcab lineup

Wheelchair-adapted model Type I (With second-row passenger-side seating/without second-row passenger-side seating)

This model is equipped with a gentle ramp (slope angle 9.5°) with air suspension on the rear wheels and a manual ramp with a forward-tilt function, features that were well received in previous models. The seat layout allows caregivers to ride next to the wheelchair user and the wheelchair user to travel with peace of mind.

Wheelchair-adapted model Type II (Without second-row passenger-side seating)

This model is equipped primarily for children using wheelchairs. It allows wheelchair users to be positioned 1.5 rows back within reach of the driver's seat by folding down the passenger seat. It also allows ingress and egress on a stretcher.

Wheelchair-adapted model Type III (With short ramp and second-row passenger-side seating/without a short ramp and second-row passenger-side seating)

This model is newly designed primarily for corporate customers. When the rear hatch door is opened, a short ramp is deployed at the same time as the vehicle height is lowered, enabling entry and exit in tight spaces. The simple operation shortens the time required for getting in and out of the vehicle and minimizes the outflow of warm and cold air.

Dedicated Friendmatic Models

When taking off and at low speeds, the steering operation force is reduced to about half that of the base model, allowing wheelchair users to drive the vehicle themselves. Driving assist devices can be retrofitted to meet customer needs.
