Introduction & Exterior

The Sienta is Toyota’s answer to the entry-level MPV. For young families who want a car that can do more

There is often the debate if the car should have enough space to bring the grandparents around. And then there is the other thing about how much a car would cost doing just that. Toyota, the makers of sensible cars may have a solution for that.

The Sienta is Toyota’s answer to the entry-level MPV. For young families who want a car that can do more.

Exterior

First thing you’d notice about the car are the black plastic extensions which run upward from the bumper lips, which find continuity within the head and tail lamp casings, which in-turn are styled quite nicely I’d say. Looks-wise, it really is a love it or hate it affair.

For the more conservative buyer, it might set you off internally going “yuck yuck yuck”, but the funky styling I believe, is intended for a slightly younger-at-heart market.

Our test car was an “Elegance” trim unit, which came equipped with two automatic rear sliding doors. The base model makes do with a manual right rear sliding unit. Sweeping lines everywhere, side sheet metal has been pressed to create a rear wheel arch which forms from the lower part of the front door. Headlamps for the “Elegance” trim also consist of LED units, which do actually provide a better throw of light.

Funky sculpting has allowed form to fuse quite well with function, as even the rear door edges come shaped pleasantly, and the door rails also find themselves terminating with the rear light housings, creating a harmonious fill of space and shape.
