The 2024 Toyota Sienna is the only hybrid minivan you can buy today (the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is a plug-in hybrid). Toyota made an unexpected move when it redesigned the Sienna and gave it a hybrid-only powertrain in 2021. Since then, the Japanese automaker has captured 32 percent of the segment, proof that Toyota has its pulse on the needs and wants of minivan buyers (and in some cases, they might even go slightly overboard with the Sienna!).
2024 Toyota Sienna: What’s New?
The Sienna remains available as a seven or eight-seat conveyance with standard front-wheel drive and an available hybrid all-wheel drivetrain. Likewise, the 2024 Sienna rides on a reconfigured TNGA-K architecture with more body sealant and noise-absorbing materials.
The 2024 Sienna gets an XSE Premium package, adding more luxury to an otherwise sporty vibe. The package adds a power driver’s seat with memory settings, leather upholstery, orange interior stitching, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel with memory, heated and ventilated front seats, puddle lamps, and a seven-inch multi-information display.
Meanwhile, other changes include a dark chrome accent on the LE and XLE headlights, while the XSE AWD and Woodland receive darker finish wheels.
Hybrid Powertrain & Fuel Economy
All Toyota Sienna front-wheel drive variants have a 2.5-liter four-cylinder and two electric motors that produce a respectable 245 horsepower. Sporty driving is not Sienna’s forte, but it will easily muster an EPA-estimated 36 mpg across the board (city, highway, and combined).
On the other hand, the all-wheel drive Sienna has an additional electric motor in the rear axle that delivers variable torque distribution to reduce understeer, improve grip over loose surfaces, and optimize handling. Toyota said the hybrid all-wheel drive Sienna could send all the torque to the front wheels for everyday driving and up to a 20:80 front/rear split when the roads get slippy. EPA fuel economy ratings for the all-wheel drive Sienna are 35/36 city/highway with a combined of 35 mpg.
2024 Toyota Sienna Cargo Space
Toyota wants to give even the largest SUVs a run for their money regarding interior flexibility. The Sienna offers 39.9 cubic feet of second-row legroom and 38.7 cubic feet in the third row. For all the items an active family could think to throw in the back, the 2024 Sienna has 33.5 cubic feet of storage room behind the rear seats, expanding to 101 cubic feet by folding the second and third rows.
The Sienna LE and XLE could seat up to eight adults, but other trims have seven seats with captain’s chairs for the second row.
