Overall, the Sienna is an excellent vehicle, with a host of appealing features and options, as well as historically strong resale values.
Standard Features And Options:
The 2010 Toyota Sienna is available in four trims: CE, LE, XLE and Limited. The CE and LE come in both seven and eight-passenger models, while the XLE and Limited are seven-passenger only. And while the CE is front-wheel drive only, all other models are offered with a choice of either front-wheel or all-wheel drive.
Standard features on the already well-equpped base Sienna CE include full power accessories, front and rear air conditioning, dual sliding rear doors with power-down windows, a telescoping steering wheel, a 6-speaker CD/MP3 sound system with an auxiliary audio jack and 16 inch steel wheels.
The LE trim adds heated side mirrors, a roof rack, steering-wheel mounted audio controls, a CD changer, cruise control, upgraded instrumentation, privacy and solar-energy-absorbing glass and a folding front passenger seat.
The Sienna XLE then adds power-sliding rear doors, a power liftgate, automatic headlamps, alloy wheels, power front seats, tri-zone automatic climate control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a removable center console, wood grain interior trim and a trip computer.
The top-of-the-line Sienna Limited, perhaps a better fit into the luxurious "Lexus" stable, adds a leather interior, driver memory, heated front seats, rear window shades, a sunroof, a leather-and-wood steering wheel, an upgraded 10-speaker JBL surround-sound audio system, Bluetooth, satellite radio, a windshield wiper de-icer and 17 inch alloy wheels.
In addition, all-wheel-drive models come with 17 inch wheels, run-flat tires and the wiper de-icer.
Optional features are grouped into packages that depend on geographic location and include items such as a rear entertainment system, navigation (with a backup camera), adaptive cruise control, xenon headlights, a power-folding third-row and 115-volt power outlets.
Engines, Powertrain And Gas Mileage:
Powering all 2010 Sienna models is a 266 horsepower 3.5 liter V6 engine that's coupled with a five-speed automatic transmission. This combination not only produces quite respectable fuel economy, but it also provides plenty of acceleration as evidenced by a 0 to 60 mph time of a brisk 8.0 seconds (in an AWD XLE version).
The EPA estimated gas mileage for front-wheel drive versions comes in at 17 mpg city and 23 mpg on the highway. The AWD versions are EPA estimated just slightly lower at 16 mpg city and 21 mpg highway.
Standard safety features on all Siennas include antilock disc brakes (ABS), traction control, stability control, and a full complement of airbags, including front-seat side and full-length side curtain. In addition, the Limited is also equipped with front and rear park assist (optional on the XLE) while the optional navigation system features a rearview camera.
In government crash tests, the 2010 Sienna received five out of five stars for side-impact protection for both the driver and passengers. In frontal-impact testing, it received four stars for driver protection and five stars for the front passenger.
The cabin of the Sienna is roomy, well-designed and attractive. The gauges and equipment are comprised of high quality materials and are user-friendly. The seats are comfortable, even plush, and there's ample storage space. What's more, the interior of the Limited model has the look and feel of a luxury vehicle.
The second-row captain's chairs in seven-passenger Siennas can be pushed together to create a bench seat. The eight-passenger Siennas come with a 40/20/40-split second-row bench with a center section that slides 13 inches closer to the front seats, enabling front seat passengers to be closer to children who are sitting there.
Overall, the Sienna provides a gigantic 149 cubic feet of cargo space.
While the 2010 Toyota Sienna is engineered to favor comfort and fuel efficiency over performance, there's still much spirit and power found in its very capable V6 engine. The power is refined so the drive is smooth and quiet, yet there's strong acceleration available wheen needed.
