Toyota Sienna Minivan Rent in Dubai
The sensible Toyota Sienna Minivan Rent in Dubai has all the hallmarks of the modern minivan: a spacious interior, advanced driver-assistance features, and a powerful, efficient powertrain. Its V-6 and eight-speed automatic can be paired with class-exclusive all-wheel drive; front-wheel drive is standard. An optional rear-seat entertainment system and a Wi-Fi hotspot keep the kids content. Standard driver-assist tech includes automated emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, and more. But the Sienna lacks some noteworthy features, such as the Chrysler Pacifica’s fold-into-the-floor Stow ‘n Go second-row seats, or the built-in vacuum that’s available in both the Honda Odyssey and the Pacifica. While this bulky box isn’t as sophisticated inside and its ride is less refined than those rivals, the Sienna has plenty of substance to satisfy buyers.
The Toyota Sienna Minivan Rent in Dubai optional all-wheel-drive system is now available on the SE trim level, which also receives a new six-spoke wheel design painted in a gunmetal gray color and an optional power sunroof. LE trim levels can now be had with the LE Preferred package, which adds blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, a proximity key with push-button start, and remote-illuminated entry. The SE Preferred package now includes rear parking sensors and the upgraded Entune 3.0 infotainment system with JBL premium audio and navigation.
The Toyota Sienna Minivan Rent in Dubai is the best bargain and our preferred choice. Its standard features include a 7.0-inch Entune infotainment system, heated exterior mirrors, power-adjustable driver’s seat, and dual power-sliding side doors. Adding all-wheel drive costs $2540 and decreases passenger seating from eight to seven by eliminating the removable second-row seat. We’d make do with the front-drive setup and only add the Outdoor package, which helps protect from kids, dogs, and the elements. It adds all-weather floor liners, mudguards, and doorsill protectors.
Zipping the kids to practice or navigating freeway frenzies on holiday weekends is easy and efficient with the Sienna’s 296-hp V-6 engine and eight-speed automatic transmission. In our testing, this powertrain scooted the front-drive Sienna to 60 mph in 6.9 seconds—quicker than the Pacifica (7.3 seconds) and the Kia Sedona (7.4 seconds). Engine noise can escalate with liberal throttle applications, but it’s not coarse. Although the eight-speed gearbox is docile around town and predictable on the highway, we noted a reluctance to downshift under heavy throttle. Its available all-wheel-drive system is a class exclusive and an extra measure of security in inclement weather.
Family karaoke contests and sleeping tots will be undisturbed thanks to the Sienna’s comfortable ride on smooth surfaces. While harsh bumps and choppy streets aren’t distressing, the shudders and squeaks heard inside the cabin made us wonder about build quality. The Sienna’s steering feels relaxed, and it can require hand-over-hand turning on 90-degree in-town corners, unlike the steering on the Odyssey and Pacifica. The Sienna SE employs an exclusive sport suspension and a retuned steering setup, but these do little to change the van’s dynamics.
The Toyota Sienna Minivan Rent in Dubai powertrain has decent fuel economy, but the Pacifica and the Odyssey both have a slight advantage when it comes to highway ratings. Our front-drive Limited test van exceeded its EPA highway rating by 2 mpg on our fuel loop—earning 29 mpg. We tested an all-wheel-drive XLE model as well, which also delivered more than its 24-mpg promise at 27 mpg.
Toyota’s interior designers are apparently fans of disjointed dash layouts and cheap plastics, as evidenced by the Toyota Sienna Minivan Rent in Dubai. Regardless of aesthetics, it remains a functional environment for passengers of all ages, with available features such as second-row captain’s chairs and a drop-down rear-seat entertainment system. However, the 2018 models now have a laminated front windshield and acoustic glass on the front-row side windows. Toyota claims this reduces noise, vibration, and harshness. Front-drive Toyota Sienna Minivan Rent in Dubai have seating for up to eight with a stowable center-position seat in the second row, as they are sold only as seven-passenger vehicles without a center bench seat. Standard three-zone climate control will come in handy to cool off the clan after a day at the beach. The Sienna is also available with a power-activated second-row seat (called an Auto Access Seat) that extends outside the vehicle and lowers to make entry and egress more accessible. A few years ago, the Sienna’s interior features were more than satisfying. However, innovative rivals have evolved with niceties such as the Pacifica’s Stow ’N Go seating system—which enables the second-row seats to hide in wells under the load floor—or the Odyssey’s reconfigurable second row and built-in vacuum. Looking for max cargo-hauling capability? Look no further. The Sienna’s class-leading cargo volume allowed us to stuff it with the most carry-ons in our tests. A highly adjustable second row and a fold-flat third row provide versatility, but it misses perfection due to the advanced cargo functionality of newer rivals.
Every Sienna is fitted with Toyota’s easy-to-use Entune infotainment system and up to five USB ports. While Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa integration features are standard and the Sienna is available with a mobile hotspot and optional rear-seat entertainment, Android Auto is still unavailable.
Looking for max cargo-hauling capability? Look no further. The Toyota Sienna Minivan Rent in Dubai class-leading cargo volume allowed us to stuff it with 57 of our carry-on suitcases. A highly adjustable second row and a fold-flat third row provide versatility, but it misses perfection due to the advanced cargo functionality of newer rivals—namely the Pacifica’s fold-flat Stow ‘n Go second-row seats.
The Toyota Sienna Minivan Rent in Dubai earned five stars from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration but missed out on any accolades from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety because it didn’t receive Good scores on the driver- or passenger-side small-overlap crash tests. Supplementing the Sienna’s crash-test results is a long list of standard driver-assistance features. These high-tech aids include automated emergency braking, lane-departure warning, lane-keeping assist, and adaptive cruise control.
