Economically speaking, both new and pre-owned cars are chosen for their utility. However, there has been a rise in the demand for multi-functional vehicles. These days, consumers are looking for vehicles that can accommodate their personal needs and the needs of their families. Fortunately, there are many vehicles that readily adapt to the needs of consumers.

The Toyota Sienna is manufactured in Indiana for the North American market. Its previous incarnations shared the front-wheel drive platform derived from the Camry. This is why the Toyota Sienna is known as the “Camry of minivans”. Currently, it is the only minivan that offers an all-wheel drive capability, allowing better control than other cars. Moreover, the Toyota Sienna possesses a two-box design that maximizes interior volume.

The Toyota Sienna is also known as a multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) or multi-utility vehicle (MUV). According to experts, the current generation is considered to be the most diverse minivan in terms of power and features. Engines are mounted closely to the front edge of the van, thus minimizing front overhang length.

The Toyota Sienna’s standard features include curtain airbags, stability control, and rearview cameras. The vehicle also has Anti-Lock Brakes (ABS), auto dimming mirrors, and traction control. It is equipped with an MP3 decoder, CD player, radio data system, wireless phone connectivity and a telescopic steering wheel with mounted audio controls. The Toyota Sienna is also capable of seating 7 passengers.

The used Toyota Sienna also has a standard engine powered by a 3.5L V-6 cylinder configuration, plus a 6-speed automatic transmission with 266 horsepower. This vehicle also has a fuel tank capacity of 79.0L, with an average fuel economy of 10.9L per km in either city or highway driving. Additionally, its rear and front has an anti-roll bar with a front wheel independent suspension and speed sensing steering.

The third generation now offers five different trim levels: the Sienna, LE, XLE, SE, and Limited. The SE offers a revised bodywork, firmer suspension, and revised steering tuning. It utilizes Electronic Power Steering (EPS) which replaced the hydraulic power steering system. Other new features include an optional sliding second row “lounge seating” recliner chair, a keyless Smart Key System with push-button start, and rear view cameras equipped with a 180 degree panoramic view. Many dealers now offer used Toyota Sienna vehicles with these features.

Used vans like the Toyota Sienna come in prices ranging from $ 14,000 to $ 34,000. On the other hand, brand new Siennas have a price range of $ 25,000 to $ 40,000—a huge difference that doesn’t compromise the quality of the car. Its versatility and dependability never changes, whether it is brand new or used. For more information, you may visit autos.yahoo.com/toyota/sienna/2012/
