TORRANCE, California — The revised 2015 Toyota Sienna minivan debuted on Thursday with an emphasis on family-friendly features, including an option that keeps parents from shouting at their kids in the backseat.
"The 2015 Sienna offers something for everyone with a more upscale interior, better handling and family-focused, smart technology," Toyota said in a statement.
The optional Driver Easy Speak feature uses the Sienna's built-in microphone to amplify the driver's voice through the rear speakers.
Instrument panel gauges have been updated, there are more soft-touch materials in the cabin and a black leather interior with white contrast stitching is a new option.
Pricing was not announced. The 2014 Toyota Sienna starts at $27,780, including an $860 destination charge.
The standard powertrain in the Sienna includes a 266-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine linked to a six-speed automatic transmission.
Safety equipment in the 2015 Sienna includes eight airbags. A rearview camera is standard.
The Sienna debuted online today. It will make its public display appearance July 18-20 at Artscape in Baltimore.
Edmunds says: It's the little things that often matter to car shoppers in the market for a new minivan.
