Spy photos of the new generation Toyota SiennaDecember 11, 2019
The car was photographed during a road test in the US state of Michigan. The new minivan is densely covered with camouflage cloaks, but progress in comparison with the last appearance of the Sienna model 2021 model year on the road is obvious.
A few months ago, Sienna already photographed on the roads, but then it was only a “mule”: the new chassis was covered with elements of the old body. Now this is a full-fledged prototype, the appearance of which is likely to change little in the production version. However, it’s rather difficult to talk about the appearance due to camouflage. Nevertheless, elements of Toyota’s modern corporate identity emerge through it, including massive shape of the radiator grille with a downward displacement, narrow headlights.
Of the new, one can note the location of the side mirrors on the doors, and, probably, the large tilt angle of the rear window of the car.
There is not much technical information about the car, but there is almost complete certainty that it is built on the basis of the universal TNGA platform and will share many components with the Camry and Highlander models. Surely the minivan will receive a hybrid version, but the main one will remain gasoline. For her, they will offer the same 3.5-liter V6 as for the Camry and Highlander, but the settings are likely to be slightly different. At the moment, under the hood of the Highlander, this engine produces 290 hp. (220 kW) of power and 356 Nm of torque, and in the version for Camry a little more – 301 hp (224 kW) and 362 Nm, respectively.
The new generation will maintain a benchmark for the North American market and certainly will not go beyond it. It is probably not long to wait for the appearance of the new generation Toyota Sienna: the car will premiere during the first half of 2020.
