In 2003, Japan began selling its 7 seater car Toyota Sienta, which is a classic bonnet mini-van with a vertical interior architecture. The seat of the second and third row can be separate, which helps to vary the passenger and luggage space. Wide sliding rear doors for easy entry to the second and third row of seats.
The second generation Sienta debuted on July 9, 2015. It ditched the box-like shape of its predecessor for a new exterior design inspired by the shape of a trekking shoe and it features a large front grille as well as front and rear bumper garnishes that connects the lights.
The minivan offers three interior layouts: 7-seater, 6-seater, and 5-seater (for wheelchair users). Interior space has been increased in all areas compared to the previous generation model. There is also a hybrid variant, which returns 27.2 km/L (77 mpg‑imp; 64 mpg‑US) under the Japan’s JC08 cycle test, making it eligible for eco-car subsidies and tax incentives. The non-hybrid Sienta returns 20.6 km/L (58 mpg‑imp; 48 mpg‑US) in FWD configuration. A “Stop & Start System” is offered as standard.
