The premiere of the second generation Toyota Sienna was held in 2003 at the Detroit Auto Show. Minivan has become significantly larger. Available in four trim levels - CE, LE, XLE, XLE Limited. CE and LE salons are designed for seven or eight passengers. On LE, XLE and XLE Limited, all-wheel drive was offered as an option. CE grade was equipped with ABS, CD player and air conditioning in the rear. The package LE included more cruise control, heated mirrors and fully folding front seats. By the way, all these elements were listed in the options for completing the CE. The XLE version was complemented by light alloy wheels, automatic climate control, electrically adjustable front seats and a removable center console. The XLE Limited was supplied with larger wheels (17 radius), disc rear brakes, stability control, transparent roof, adaptive cruise control, electric drive for adjusting the front seats, parking sensors, CD changer and leather seats.
High seating provides excellent visibility. View through the rear window is limited, it is typical of minivans, but huge side mirrors compensate for poor visibility. In the seven-seater version, the second row of seats consists of two full-size comfortable seats with armrests. The right seat can move in the lateral plane, while giving the opportunity to install an additional seat. In the eight-seat configuration, the second row is one single chair. At the same time, the middle part of the chair can be moved close to the first row of seats, this is important if you use a child seat so that the child is closer. The third row of seats folds in a ratio of 6/4 into a flat platform without removing the head restraints, thus forming an additional cargo space. In addition, in some models, the front passenger seat is folded, forming a table. A large number of storage boxes and cup holders are a pleasant and convenient detail in the interior of the Toyota Sienna.

The design and interior have undergone noticeable changes. Exterior has become more attractive. The design of the front part has acquired “aggressive” features, and the rear part now looks less “heavy”. Practical salon Toyota Sienna has a high level of comfort and allows you to increase the usable space with the help of a folding third row of seats.
