The next-generation Toyota Sienna Hybrid will appear as a redesigned and modern minivan that will be suitable for either your long family rides or business trips with your partners. This attractive and functional vehicle is expected to undergo some distinctive changes and visual upgrades. It is still uncertain if the 2019 Sienna Hybrid will be based on the well-known Toyota TNGA platform. However, this model will come with a reduced weight due to the use of lightweight materials. Lighter chassis will benefit the acceleration, fuel economy and total performance. When it comes to exterior and body design of the new Sienna Hybrid, you will notice a redesigned grille and bumpers as well as the automatic headlights that will appear larger in size and that will use the latest LED technology. This minivan should also be available in few new body colors.
Inside the 2019 Toyota Sienna Hybrid, you can expect a brand-new interior. The cabin will offer three rows of seats that will accommodate seven or eight passengers. You will also get plenty of cargo space, especially when you fold down the back seats. Toyota will use high-quality materials to furnish the cabin and fine leather is expected to cover the seats, at least in higher trims. A driver will get a redesigned steering wheel as well as an upgraded center console. There you will find a 6.1-inch touch screen with the latest infotainment and entertainment system. Navigation system, satellite radio, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, USB port, DVD system and automatic climate control are just some of the options that the new Sienna Hybrid will provide for you. Necessary safety systems and driver assist features will not be left out either.
So, what will the 2019 Toyota Sienna Hybrid be hiding under its hood? As far as we have been informed, this model will use the plug-in hybrid system that combines a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, an electric motor and a lithium-ion battery pack. It should be mated to a brand-new eight-speed automatic transmission, but other numbers and the total output have not been confirmed. All we know is that such an engine produces 200 horsepower in the Camry.
