The 2019 Sienna is more attractive now including Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa compatibility on all models standard. Some of the trims of the 2019 model are now available with all-wheel drive and seven-passenger seating, making the Sienna more spacious and powerful.
The Sienna is a well recognized Toyota minivan for more than 2 decades. It is manufactured in the facilities of Toyota Motor Manufacturing in Princeton, Indiana, especially for the North American market.
The Sienna replaced the first-generation Toyota Previa minivan in 1997, with many enhancements including a new front-wheel drive system to replace the Previa’s rear wheel drive.
2019 Toyota Sienna LTD Premium
The 2019 Sienna is available on 7 different trim models. The one I am driving is the top of the line, the LTD Premium. It includes all possible premium features anyone would love to have when purchasing a minivan.
Even though Toyota has not changed the current third generation in the last 9 years, every year Toyota makes small changes and upgrades that make the Sienna attractive against the minivan competition. May of us expect to see a new 4th Generation sometime soon.
Probably, one of the main reasons why the Sienna is so successful is because of the strong brand name of Toyota, that gives buyers a strong confident when buying this minivan. Everyone knows that Toyota produces great cars at a reasonable price. Not just great value, but also low cost maintenance, easy repairs, inexpensive parts, and all the background associated with Toyota makes the Sienna more attractive than the competition.
The 2019 Sienna is part of the Third Generation, introduced in 2011, however Toyota keeps refreshing features and details to keep customers interested on each new model.

While other minivan models like the Chrysler Pacifica, the Honda Odyssey and the Kia Sedona feature newer and more modern designs, the Toyota Sienna remains a great choice providing one of the best values on the minivan segment and great pricing.
The 2019 Toyota Sienna offers the best combination of very important aspects like fuel efficiency, reliability, power, comfort and interior space in its class, for a great value price on a range from $31K to $47K.
Looking at the near future, I wait excited to see the release of the Sienna Fourth Generation sometime soon, but for now let’s enjoy the 2019 Sienna.
