2021 Toyota Sienna
2021 Toyota Sienna at Stampede Toyota in Calgary, Alberta
The minivans of the past were, if nothing else, practical; and while there’s nothing wrong with practicality, few songs have been sung and few books have been written extolling the virtues of practicality. This is where the 2021 Toyota Sienna separates itself from the pack, offering a sleek and modern vision of the minivan. Stylish, sporty, and smart—not to mention economical and environmentally-conscious—the redesigned Toyota Sienna shatters expectations, and finally brings a bit of cool to the minivan segment. Because while there’s nothing wrong with being practical, the Sienna has its sights set much higher than that. Learn more about the redesigned 2021 Toyota Sienna with your home for all things Toyota in Calgary: Stampede Toyota.
Forget about the frumpy minivans of the past, the 2021 Toyota Sienna puts a fashionable foot forward. With a design inspired by Japan’s Shinkansen Bullet Train, the redesigned Sienna is sleek and stylish thanks to a bold, SUV-like low grille and wrap-around headlights. Sculpted side panels add an athletic feel to the 2021 Sienna, with flared wheel wells housing 17” wheels on the LE and XLE models, all the way to the 20” wheels found on the Sienna XSE FWD. Bridging those side panels to the rear of the Sienna is a pair of LED taillights, featuring a unique banded illumination system.
Of course, the Sienna is still a minivan, and all the practicality you need is there—and then some. Hands full? No problem. The innovative Kick Sensor Sliding side and power rear doors, available on XLE, XSE, and Limited models, allow easy access with a simple wave of your foot. This leads you into a well thought-out interior featuring an array of premium materials along with an abundance of space. Relax in the 8-way power adjustable driver’s seat found on every Sienna trim level, while 2nd-row passengers in select 7-passenger models can enjoy the spacious interior in a pair of super long-slide Captain’s Chairs—with the Limited FWD model even adding built-in ottomans for even more comfort!

The performance capabilities of the 2021 Toyota Sienna are yet another way the Sienna separates itself from the minivans of the past. A hybrid-electric powertrain offers up a simply breathtaking blend of power and efficiency, with the 2.5 litre, 16-valve dual overhead cam engine giving the Sienna a hefty 245 horsepower to work with. Featuring Toyota’s advanced Hybrid Synergy Drive system, and paired to an electronically controlled continuously variable transmission (eCVT), this minivan gets an astounding fuel consumption rating of just 6.8 L/100 km in the city when equipped with all wheel drive, and an even lower 6.5 L/100 km on the highway in the front wheel drive models.
We’re not talking about just any all wheel drive either, with Toyota’s intelligent electronic on demand all-wheel-drive system efficiently distributing torque to the wheels that need it most, depending on the driving conditions. Add in four selectable driving modes and refined handling thanks to a low centre of gravity and trailing-arm multi-link rear suspension, and the 2021 Toyota Sienna performs unlike any other minivan. Ever.

Safety & Technology
Not only does the 2021 Toyota Sienna offer some seriously advanced driving technology under the hood, it also offers an array of safety and infotainment technology—making it one of the smartest minivans on the road. This starts with the Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatible infotainment system run through a 9” touch screen, up to and including a Premium Audio system with Remote, embedded navigation, traffic, weather systems, and more. Long trips with passengers are made more entertaining thanks to the Sienna’s available rear seat entertainment system and its 1080p HD Entertainment Center featuring an 11.6” display screen, HDMI inputs, and two wireless headphone sets.
But beyond its infotainment features it’s the advanced safety features that really make the 2021 Sienna stand out, all thanks to Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 found standard on all Sienna trims. Active-safety technology and driver-assistance features like Pre-Collision System with Daytime/Low-Light Vehicle & Pedestrian Detection, Daytime Bicycle Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Lane Tracing Assist, Automatic High Beams, and Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control all work in concert to provide an exceptionally safe ride for everyone—both inside and outside the Sienna. Add in other standard features like a Blind Spot Monitor, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and a standard backup camera, and you’ve got one of the safest vehicles on the road. Period.
Toyota Sienna Model Changes
When it comes to what’s new on the 2021 version, it might be easier to list what hasn’t changed since the 2020 Toyota Sienna graced the road. A complete redesign has led to an incredibly stylish new look, while the interior also offers a new look and greater functionality. As for performance, the previous gas-powered V6 option found in the 2020 Sienna is now gone. In its place, a self-charging hybrid powertrain and an available electronic on demand all-wheel drive system ensures that the 2021 Toyota Sienna is able to offer best-in-class fuel economy to go along with its new look.
The 2021 Toyota Sienna has boldly gone where no minivans have gone before it; not only does it offer an exceptionally powerful and efficient hybrid powertrain, but it also looks substantially better than its competitors. This combination of style, practicality, safety, and performance, makes the 2021 Sienna a truly standout vehicle in a normally drab and dull segment.
