2015 Toyota Sienna Changes — An Epitome Of A Minivan
The 2015 Toyota Sienna minivan comes this year with certain small improvements. The manufacturer decided to keep major redesign for some future model year, probably 2016. The 2015 Sienna minivan will get new wheels and some new body colors, while the style will be kept the same. The idea behind the Sienna minivan is that it should be a comfortable family vehicle, which is able to have good performance stats and superb fuel economy at the same time. Of course, since there are no major changes, the 2015 Toyota Sienna minivan will be a lot like the last model year version, so we may not expect dramatic changes. We hope this will happen when the completely redesigned Sienna comes to the market. It is important to mention the rumors about the 2015 Toyota Sienna hybrid, which will probably be available, too.

What we found out is that there is a possibility of some control panel changes in order to make it more comfortable for use. There are seven (or eight on some trims) seats inside. Since this is primarily a family vehicle, the entertainment is very important because of hours and hours which will children spend in ride. So, there is a DVD system with shared-screen feature.
