At the New York International Auto Show, Toyota rolled out the latest iterations of two staples in their lineup. Both the 2018 Sienna and the 2018 Yaris made their debut at the show, showing off new styling as well as upgraded tech and features. Keep reading below to find out how the Sienna and the Yaris have been freshened up for the upcoming model year.
2018 Sienna: Fun & Family-Friendly
The Sienna is one of the most popular choices in Toyota’s lineup of vehicles, and has been the top-selling van in the United States for the past two years. The Sienna is an excellent choice for families, even more so with its new safety and technology upgrades.
In 2018, the Sienna will have the same trims it had in 2017: the L, LE, SE, XLE and Limited. It will also be available as a seven or eight passenger vehicle.
The biggest draw is the new tech, which has both fun and practical sides. For fun, the 2018 Sienna is equipped with Toyota Entune 3.0 Multimedia. This new system is standard on all Sienna models, and includes both navigation and App Suite Connect. Upper trims will also offer in-car WiFi connectivity, as well as an upgraded JBL Audio system and other sound enhancement. Other standard tech updates include more USB ports throughout the cabin and an available upgraded rear seat entertainment system.
On the safety end, each Sienna will come equipped with Toyota Safety Sense-P (TSS-P). This is an upgraded set of active safety features that will keep you driving confidently. TSS-P includes a Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert and Dynamic Cruise Control.
?2018 Yaris: Sporty & Efficient
The new Toyota Yaris is adopting in full force its European roots, becoming more dynamic than ever before. The compact hatchback’s bold redesign is sure to attract even more fans with its wider, sportier stance and more modern look.
It’s not only the look that has undergone a refresh; the 2018 Yaris has also gotten several feature updates. Each Yaris will now have the sporty LCD instrument display that used to only be available on the SE trim.
All models of the Yaris will also be outfitted with Entune Audio, which includes multimedia features like a 6.1-in. touchscreen display, smartphone integration, Bluetooth connectivity and Siri Eyes Free. The SE and LE trims add satellite radio and a navigation system.
Both the Yaris and the Sienna will feel completely new and fresh for the 2018 model year. Keep an eye out for the debut of these new models on our showroom floor at our dealership in Phoenix later this year. In the meantime, check out the current 2017 models available today!
