What You Should Know About the New 2022 Toyota Sienna Family Van

A staple of the Toyota lineup for over twenty years, the Toyota Sienna is a highly popular minivan that offers plenty of room for passengers and cargo, while being capable both on-road and off-road. With competitive pricing, it offers a lot of value and features for an affordable price.

Now, the all-new 2022 Toyota Sienna has arrived, and it's making some big changes.  Biggest of all: the Sienna is now hybrid-only, giving it truly superior gas mileage within the minivan class. There are plenty of other changes as well, making this a truly talked-about upgrade to the Sienna line.

So, what's the lowdown on the new 2022 Toyota Sienna?  Let's take a look.

Everything You Need to Know About the New 2022 Toyota Sienna

1 - External appearance

If you took a glance at the new 2022 Sienna, you might initially think that it's an SUV rather than a minivan - and that's by design.  The new styling is intended to help it fit in with Toyota's smaller utility vehicles while making it more attractive to people who want a practical large family vehicle that still looks nice when it's driving down the highway.  With its swooping lines, stylish wheels, and aerodynamic feel, this certainly isn't your father's chunky minivan!

Manufacturers' prices start at $35,925 for the base LE model, potentially up to $51,365 for the top-tier Platinum model. Typically, we recommend mid-range models, such as the XSE - which provides an excellent balance between price and features. Of course, nature lovers might also be tempted by the brand-new Woodland Edition, which adds a range of extra specifically for enjoying the great outdoors. These include a tow hitch, roof rack, and a built-in 1500w external power outlet.

2 - Engine and performance

As mentioned above, the 2022 Sienna lineup only includes hybrids. Under the hood, the basic model features a 2.5-liter four-stroke engine, alongside two front-wheel electric motors, which add up to a total of 243hp. However, we'd strongly recommend an upgrade to the AWD model, which adds a third electric motor powering both of the back wheels.  At $760, this upgrade is well worth it, particularly if you're planning on frequent off-road trips or if you know you'll be doing a lot of towing.

It can do 0-60 in 7.7 seconds and can run a quarter-mile in 15.8 seconds at full acceleration, reaching 88mph in that time.

Of course, as a hybrid, the real appeal here is in the excellent gas mileage. The 2022 Sienna is rated for 36mpg during both city and highway driving. If you opt for the AWD option, it only reduces mileage by 1mpg - another reason it's an excellent upgrade.  That makes the new Sienna one of the single most fuel-efficient minivans on the road, and a great choice for large families looking to save money.

3 - Interior design

The interior of the 2022 Sienna has also been completely updated, to match its sleek and modern exterior. The most prominent new feature in the cockpit is a large center console between the front seats, offering large armrests as well as additional storage within the console.

Seats in the second row are styled as captain's chairs and are non-removable. However, the rear seats are removable, while offering superior legroom. They can be moved forward or back by up to 25 inches, allowing even the tallest of people to ride in total comfort.  Overall, the Sienna is rated to hold up to 7 passengers, or an absolute mountain of cargo with the rear seats removed.

You also get a huge infotainment interface in the front center, with a 9-inch touchscreen that's exceptionally easy for either front-seat passenger to use.  It has compatibility with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Amazon Alexa as standard in all models, along with an impressive seven USB ports scattered around the cabin for device power. On top of that, it features a SiriusXM satellite radio as well as an onboard Wi-Fi hotspot for easy online connectivity.

If you need even more electronic goodness, every model except the base LE can also be upgraded with an 11.6-inch rear-seat entertainment system to keep the kids busy.

4 - Safety

Toyota is a leader in on-road safety, and the 2022 Sienna is no exception. You get Toyota's Safety Sense 2.0 bundle, including:

  • Blind-spot monitoring
  • Pre-collision detection / warning
  • Automatic pedestrian detection and braking
  • Radar-based adaptive cruise control
  • Automatic high beams
  • Lane tracing assistance with warnings
  • Road sign alerts

In addition, extra upgrades include parking sensors and 360-degree exterior camera systems for maximum visibility. Overall, Toyotas are among the safest vehicles on the road, and the Sienna is no exception - making it perfect for safety-conscious parents.

5 - Warranty coverage

The warranty is standard for Toyota vehicles. You get a limited 3-year / 36,000-mile warranty, as well as a 5-year / 60,000-mile warranty on the power train.  The hybrid component warranty is even more generous, guaranteeing the electronics for up to 8 years and 100,000 miles.

Plus, unlike most other manufacturers, Toyota includes complimentary maintenance for 2 years or 25,000 miles. If you have any minor problems early on, just come back to your friendly Brockville Toyota dealer and it'll be taken care of!
