Certified Pre-Owned Toyota Sienna Warranty

There are some benefits to buying a certified pre-owned Sienna, even with the model’s above-average reliability. Toyota provides a one-year/12,000-mile limited warranty on all its certified pre-owned vehicles, and it extends the original new-car powertrain warranty to seven years or 100,000 miles. Each CPO Toyota must pass a 160-point inspection. Additional benefits like towing and roadside assistance may be available, so read the Toyota warranty page carefully. The model's original sale date determines whether it is eligible for the CPO program

Toyota’s CPO program is one of the better ones available. According to our analysis, only a few affordable car companies, like Chevrolet and Honda, offer better programs.

2016 Toyota Sienna Versus the Competition

Which Is Better: 2016 Toyota Sienna or 2016 Honda Odyssey?

The 2016 Honda Odyssey has agile handling and a smooth ride. In contrast, the Sienna's ride can be a bit rough at times, and its engine can sound harsh when pushed. The Odyssey is also nicer inside. It has a versatile interior and useful features, such as an available onboard vacuum and power-sliding doors. The Odyssey took home our 2016 Best Minivan for the Money and Best Minivan for Families awards. It is the better all-around vehicle.

Which Is Better: 2016 Toyota Sienna or 2016 Kia Sedona?

The 2016 Kia Sedona boasts a luxurious and quiet cabin, but it also has underwhelming acceleration, clumsy handling, and an uncomfortable ride. In contrast, the Sienna has a V6 engine that puts out plenty of power to get up to highway and passing speeds. While the Sedona has average cargo space for a minivan, the Sienna has much more. The Sienna also has roomier rear seats, though the Sedona can be equipped with second-row lounge seats, which recline and have footrests. Overall, the Sienna is the better minivan.

2016 Sienna Interior

How Many People Does the 2016 Sienna Seat?

The 2016 Sienna has standard seating for seven, but an available middle seat in the second row increases capacity to eight. Available features include leather upholstery, heated and power-adjustable front seats, "long-slide" second-row lounge seats, and a power-folding third row.

The second-row lounge seats make the second row incredibly comfortable, and the available leather upholstery adds to the Sienna's interior appeal. The interior is quiet, outward visibility is clear, and the Sienna has good head- and legroom, even in the second and third rows.

How Many Car Seats Fit in the 2016 Toyota Sienna?

The Sienna has four full sets of LATCH child-seat connectors on the second-row outboard seats and the middle and passenger-side third-row seats. There are no tether anchors on the other seats. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the Sienna an Acceptable rating, the second highest offered. The IIHS found the tethers hard to find and noted that the lower anchors were buried too deep in the seats.

The 2016 Sienna comes standard with a USB port, Bluetooth, tri-zone automatic climate control, and Toyota’s Entune audio system with a 6.1-inch touch screen. The Sienna's touch screen is intuitive and responsive, and the controls are well-organized on the center stack.
