After 3 years on the market, the Toyota Sienta is, unsurprisingly, the latest in line to receive a facelift. The 2nd generation of the Sienta is immediately striking, with its more athletic profile and aggressive styling being inspired by the rugged features of a trekking shoe. For Toyota traditionalists who might be put off by its new appearance, you can set your mind at ease. Though different on the outside, the DNA of the Sienta remains quintessentially Toyota, with its excellent reliability, build quality and practicality. So if you are looking for a compact, city-functional MPV from a trusted brand no less, this might just be the thing that you’re looking for. To find out exactly how the latest Toyota Sienta compares to its predecessor, simply read on.
With the Sienta, Toyota has seemingly continued its trend of spicing up its more conventional designs. In the Sienta’s case, they did it with the trekking shoe inspiration. This is clearly evident from the car’s side profile, where the bonnet is connected to the high roof and rear end of the car via an extremely sloped windshield. Despite the boxy shape typical of MPVs, the Sienta has little flourishes added to inject more fluidity and aesthetic appeal. These include sweeping lines and curves right down the body of the car, as well as black extensions from the bumper that connect all the way to the headlights.
