2018 Toyota Yaris Hatchback

2018 Toyota Yaris Hatchback

 

The New York International Auto Show sees two Toyota debuts in April. Toyota is holding the new 2018 Sienna and Yaris Hatchback debuts at the show, two opposite-sized hatchbacks that have their great looks, practicality, and smart features in common.

The 2018 Yaris Hatch brings a sportier style for the model year, with a new front fascia and grille with chrome accents, a piano black mesh grille for the SE trim, and a restyled rear-end to complement the front-end updates. The Yaris also gets plenty of updates to its interior, with new audio features, an ECO driving indicator, and a standard Entune Multimedia bundle.

The 2018 Sienna improves even further on the much-improved 2017 Sienna with styling updates and technology additions. Toyota Safety Sense P will be standard on the new Sienna and will include a Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, and more. The Sienna will also come standard with an enhanced Entune 3.0 multimedia system with App Suite Connect and available 4G LTE.

There’s no denying that the minivan is the ultimate family hauler, but if you’re looking for the best minivan for your family, take a good look at the Toyota Sienna. Edmunds.com and Parents Magazine recently named the Toyota Sienna as one of the 10 best family cars of the year. The Sienna was also named 2016 Best Minivan.

2016 Toyota Sienna - 2016 best minivan

2016 Toyota Sienna Overview

“The endlessly roomy Sienna stands above its competitors for two reasons: It’s the only one with available all-wheel drive, and the especially user-friendly controls help you stay focused on the road,” Parents Magazine writes.

 

In addition to its class-exclusive available all-wheel drive, the Sienna will impress you with its available Driver Easy Speak. This reduces the need for drivers to shout all the way to the backseat. There is a microphone located near the driver that conveys the driver’s voice through the speakers in the back.

Another great family friendly feature is the Dual-View Entertainment Center. The 16.4-inch widescreen display can simultaneously display two videos. It is compatible with Blu-Ray and comes with an HDMI input and an SD card reader. The screen can be operated from any seat in the Sienna by using the remote control. It also comes with a pair of wireless headphones.

Test drive the 2016 Toyota Sienna today at Hurlbert Toyota to see if it is the perfect fit for your family.

Toyota Highlander

Toyota Highlander

Obviously, the needs of one family can vary greatly from the needs of another. That is why there is never a one-size-fits-all perfect family car. To help families of all shapes and sizes find the best car for them, each year Kelley Blue Book creates a list of the 15 Best Family Cars.

For 2015, three Toyota models were named Best Family Cars, including the 2015 Toyota Camry, 2015 Highlander, and 2015 Sienna.

For smaller families with only one or two children, the Toyota Camry may be the ideal choice. With the 2015 model, families can enjoy the Camry’s bold new design along with a comfortable interior and improved driving performance. And, with its strong reputation for reliability and high resale value, families won’t be left stranded.

If three rows of seating is what your family needs, Kelley Blue Book recommends the Toyota Highlander. This 3-row crossover stands above the crowded competition with its ideal size and seating layout for up to eight passengers. With the pop-out conversation mirror, Mom and Dad can always keep an eye on what’s going on in the backseat.

Nothing can beat a minivan when it comes to the perfect family hauler and the Toyota Sienna is one of the best. The Sienna is still the only minivan on the market to offer all-wheel drive, making it the ideal choice for families who have to battle wintery weather. It has a variety of seating configurations for seven or eight passengers and offers plenty of storage space and creature comforts, including Toyota’s Entune system, a wide-screen rear-seat entertainment system that can play two movies at once, and the Driver Easy Speak that allows parents to talk to the third-row passengers without yelling.

Which of these Toyota models is the ideal choice for your family? Can’t decide? Stop by Hurlbert Toyota and try them all on for size.

2015 Toyota Sienna

The Toyota Sienna is changing the minivan game for 2015 by introducing all-wheel drive performance to the segment.

Toyota’s latest family van will seat 8 in comfort, safety, and style. New safety tech includes an additional LATCH location in the third row seat for anchoring child seats, increased side airbag coverage, and a new front passenger seat cushion airbag.

A refreshed interior design also makes it easier to keep an eye on the kids while maintaining focus on driving. The Sienna will offer the all-new Driver Easy Speak option that uses the voice-command microphone to send your voice through the rear speakers. This, combined with the standard conversation mirror in the overhead console, will reduce the need to turn around and shout to be heard in the back seats, which distracts from driving safely.

The exterior of the 2015 Toyota Sienna also gets refreshed with a new front grille, slimmer headlights, and new LED daytime running lamps.

The Sienna will be powered by a 266 horsepower V6 engine with available all-wheel drive that gives drivers extra confidence in slippery conditions like snow or rain.
