2021 Toyota Sienna Hybrid Is Versatile and Curvaceous
Redesigned minivan gains standard hybrid powertrain and new features galore
The Toyota Sienna has been completely redesigned for the 2021 model year. Not only does it ride on an all-new platform, but every trim will come with a hybrid powertrain, with all-wheel drive available.
That the Sienna will come only as a hybrid fits in with Toyota’s stated goal that it wants hybrid models to comprise 25 percent of its sales volume by 2025. Unlike the rival Chrysler Pacifica plug-in hybrid minivan, the Sienna hybrid won’t need to be plugged in to make use of its electric power.
Toyota says today’s minivan customers "do not want to feel like they are driving a bus," so one of the goals with the new Sienna was to make it look and feel more like an SUV. Numerous new convenience features, some standard and some optional, have also been added to increase the Sienna’s versatility and appeal.
Here is what we know so far.
