Heyward Allen Toyota Reviews 2017 Toyota Sienna Handling and Drivability
The 2017 Toyota Sienna isn’t just a minivan. It is a driver-oriented machine. Toyota knows that moms and dads are people, too. As such, engineers set out to make sure the Sienna is as much of a drivable vehicle as it is a livable one. You can see for yourself when you test drive at Heyward Allen Toyota dealer serving Athens GA.
Power is essential for a seven-seater. So consider these figures. The 2017 Toyota Sienna cranks out 296 horsepower and 263 lb.-ft. of torque. How does that compare to the new Pacifica? It generates 287 horsepower and 262 lb.-ft. The Dodge Grand Caravan can claim only 283 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. The 2017 Honda Pilot is even further behind with 248 horsepower and 250 lb.-ft. Clearly the one with the get-up-and-go is the Sienna.
An eight-speed automatic transmission drives the Sienna. This goes beyond the capability of the six-speed automatics on the Dodge Grand Caravan or Honda Odyssey LX. Fuel efficiency is the same as the Odyssey LX and better than the Dodge minivan. Parents will appreciate the chance to skip the gas station more often. Find financing.
The Sienna has a front-wheel drivetrain and handles similarly to a car. A tight turning circle helps you in busy parking lots. An anti-vibration subframe and gas-filled shock absorbers manage bumpy roads. The power-assisted brakes can provide more power in an emergency. Electronic sensors regulate the throttle and brake distribution to create stability and traction. Electric power steering regulates oversteer and understeer, giving the driver more confidence.
