Minivan Competition Is Getting Fierce

Posted Monday, May 18, 2015 by nhtwpprod

When it comes to minivans, you may not think that there is a lot of competition out there for small vans to tote the family around town. Your local Toyota dealership, North Hollywood Toyota, will be happy to show you all the different features and options to consider if you’re in the market for a minivan. In a recent review, the 2015 Toyota Sienna was ranked number 2 out of 7 total minivans. There were tests, and rankings, and reviews given by industry critics to help choose the best minivans available today.

Why the Sienna?
The Toyota Sienna minivan has gone through many changes over the years, making it more comfortable, more efficient, and more attractive for families each time. The 2015 model offers a refreshed interior with quality materials and an attractive design.  With big, easy-to-use climate control, and touch screen infotainment, both drivers and the front seat passenger can easily control the comfort within the minivan and be able to navigate.  The Sienna offers a dual view rear seat Blu-ray player, navigation, audio system, a sliding center console, and a really nifty gadget for the driver. “Driver Easy Speak” is like a bullhorn or intercom system that lets the driver speak to people in the back of the minivan through the speakers!

A Powerful Minivan
You may not think power is important when it comes to a minivan. If that’s what you think, then you’ve probably never been on a road trip with the entire family. Power is important. A minivan needs to be able to accelerate well with a full load. The 2015 Sienna has a V6 to give powerful acceleration, a six-speed automatic transmission, and either front or all-wheel drive.

Fuel Economy
Consumers, reviewers, and motor journalists have lauded the 2015 Sienna for its excellent fuel economy and great handling. Sport-tuned suspension offers good handling, while 25 mpg highway is fuel efficiency at its best, for a minivan.

Ample Space
Minivans are made to fit the whole family. The 2015 Sienna comfortably seats 7-8 passengers. This means great leg and head room, space to enjoy coloring books, or to even lean a seat back to doze off while riding. If the family is heading out of town and you need more space, the Sienna has a 1,000 pound towing capacity, which makes it easy for you to haul a small trailer with camping equipment or other important items.

When it comes to the safety of your family, there is no such thing as taking too many precautions.  The Toyota Star Safety System has accident avoidance features like backup sonar and camera, advanced braking control, airbags, enhanced stability control, and blind spot monitoring.  It is hard to beat Toyota when it comes to safe vehicles, and a minivan that is made to carry your entire family should be extra safe. The 2015 Sienna lives up to that goal, and more.

Head to North Hollywood Toyota to check out the 2015 Sienna today! Take it for a test drive, and you may find that all the preconceptions you had about minivans were wrong. It’s a little bit of luxury that will eliminate the hassle of cramming kids into the car to hit the road. The extra space will likely save your sanity on a long trip!
