2021 Toyota Sienna for sale – The 2021 Toyota Sienna is completely redesigned with a new look and new platform. It is now offered only as a hybrid, with its gas-electric powertrain making a total of 243 horsepower. The new Sienna minivan will go on sale by the end of 2020.
The third-generation Toyota Sienna has lingered since 2011. During that time, others in its class received significant upgrades in looks, tech, and powertrains. Now it’s Toyota’s turn to join the modern minivan movement with the all-new 2021 Sienna, which will feature a new design, more useful interior space, upgraded tech, and a thrifty powertrain.

The 2021 Toyota Sienna minivan with available all-wheel drive now comes as a hybrid that Toyota estimates will get 33 mpg combined. The fourth-generation minivan comes with more standard features, updated technology, more premium options, and a new look inside and out.
Even though Toyota took design cues that range from bullet trains to SUVs, the Sienna is at its core a minivan that can seat up to eight in comfort and with convenience. Lop off the back end and it could pass for something else, but then it would lose the roominess and cargo volume you can’t get in an SUV. The cockpit is streamlined and uncluttered but some people might be tempted instead to ride in the second row and its available ottoman footrests kicking up from the captain’s chairs. This is not the minivan of your youth.
Ready For Family Adventures
Toyota says the new Sienna can be equipped with Yakima accessories, so if you’re planning to go for bike rides or need extra space to carry your stuff around, Yakima has you covered. The Sienna is available with roof crossbars, which support several Yakima racks. We’re not sure if rooftop tents are also supported, but it would be cool to camp on top of the Sienna.
Electronic On-demand All-Wheel Drive
Sienna has long offered optional all-wheel drive, and the 2021 model is no exception. The 2021 Sienna is the only vehicle in its segment that combines a hybrid powertrain with AWD, and the system is available on all model grades for an exceptionally attractive price.
Sienna uses a new kind of AWD called Electronic on-demand AWD. Instead of a heavy AWD transfer case and space-robbing driveshaft to the rear wheels, this AWD system uses a separate independent electric motor to power the rear wheels the instant additional traction is needed and at all vehicle speeds.
Like the hybrid system, the Hybrid AWD system works seamlessly and transparently. During off-the-line starts, Hybrid AWD pre-emptively sends up to 80 per cent of driving force to the rear wheels to help prevent front-wheel slip. The Hybrid AWD system also enhances cornering agility by helping to reduce understeer, giving the Sienna a more confident handling feel.
Torque distribution then varies with conditions, from 100:0 in constant-speed driving to 20:80 on slippery surfaces. Torque distribution is indicated on the Multi-information Display.
2021 Toyota Sienna Style and performance
Toyota Sienna was designed and built in the U.S., and the 2021 Sienna aspires to look sportier than its boxy predecessor. From the side, a crease extends from the rocker panel up over the rear wheel into the slim horizontal taillights. The front has a broad lower grille, which is honeycombed in XSE trim, and a much more flowing, subtle trapezoidal style with LED headlights sweeping back into the body. It’s an alluring improvement, and one that Toyota says was inspired by a Japanese bullet train. Even with the 20-inch wheels standard on XSE trim, Sienna’s boxed end makes it hard to mistake for anything other than a minivan.
And there’s nothing wrong with that, especially on the inside. Standard seating for eight can be upgraded to fit two captain’s chairs with collapsing ottoman footrests for optimal comfort. Those available seats come heated and can slide up to 25 inches to optimize the space for whoever might be sitting there. Those seats don’t stow on the floor, though the mid-second-row seat is removable and stowable in the standard setup.
Upfront, the spaciousness opens up even more. The stretched horizontal display of the dash conceals a generous storage area beneath the centre console. The hybrid powertrain, and available all-wheel drive that uses an electric motor mounted to the rear axle, means there’s no driveshaft tunnel through the centre of the vehicle.
The 2021 Sienna is the only minivan in the market to offer an all-wheel drive with a hybrid powertrain. Although the 2021 Pacifica is getting traction on all four wheels, the system is not available on the hybrid models. This is the same system used in the 2020 Toyota Highlander Hybrid, which uses an electric motor to power the rear wheels. At launch, the system can send up to 80 per cent of available torque to the rear axle depending on the driving conditions, though most of the time it will send all the power to the front wheels.

Tech is also key in the 2021 Sienna with its standard 9-inch touchscreen, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, six-speaker audio system, SiriusXM, Wi-Fi, and more. It also has an available 12-speaker, 1,200-watt JBL audio system, 1,500-watt power inverter, vacuum, refrigerator, 11.6-inch rear entertainment system, and digital rearview mirror.
Under its hood, the Sienna will drop its potent V6 powertrain in favour of a thriftier 2.5-litre hybrid four-cylinder unit that will deliver 243 combined horsepower. This will help the Sienna achieve a class-leading 33 miles per gallon combined. All-wheel drive will remain an option.
