At the 2017 New York International Auto Show, Toyota introduced an all-new version of its popular Swagger Wagon. It’s no secret that the minivan segment has been fledgling for years, due in a large part to its negative stigma as an “uncool” vehicle. Just a couple of years ago, Toyota decided to flip that reputation on its head by building a campaign around the Swagger Wagon. The made their minivan stand out amongst the rest, and its reputation has certainly improved since. This year, the 2018 Toyota Sienna in Palatine IL is more of a Swagger Wagon than ever thanks to several updates and enhancements both inside and out.
Last year, the Sienna received a new powertrain. This year? The Sienna was almost completely redesigned, introducing design enhancements, technologies and convenient features. Safety is enhanced by the standardization of the Toyota Safety Sense P package across all Sienna trim levels, meaning even the base model will offer Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control and the rest of the TSS-P features.
In the images seen above and to the side, you can see the exterior styling updates on display. The front fascia was redesigned to project a much more aggressive appearance, side lower rockers have been added to each trim and three new exterior color options have been added – Toasted Walnut Pearl, Alumina Jade Metallic and Parisian Night Pearl.
Other technology- and convenience-enhancing features include Entune 3.0 Multimedia, App Suite Connect, Wi-Fi Connect, five different USB ports spread out through the vehicle, an updated Rear Seat Entertainment System that allows streaming with Android devices, Bird’s Eye View Monitor on the Limited Premium model, a 4.2” multi-information display in the instrument panel and a host of sound improvements on the Limited model.
The new features and updates are only the beginning of what makes the newest Swagger Wagon such an outstanding option.
