When you have a family in tow, I think it is important to see a vehicle from their perspective. While we had the 2014 Toyota Sienna, I jumped in the back often to get a feel for it. I simply wanted to experience the minivan the way my kids did. And can I tell you something? They had it made back there!
2014 Toyota Sienna
First things first, the 2014 Toyota Sienna was not lacking in comfort in any of the seats. But if you are lucky enough to snag one of the second row captain chairs, you were set for a ride in luxury. Not only do the seats have adjustable armrests, but they also feature ottomans. You can easily lounge back, kick your feet up, and watch the latest DVD release on the Dual-View Entertainment Center. Not bad for a drive in a minivan.
Secondly, if you do not want to watch a movie, lay back and watch the clouds or stars overhead as you cruise down the road. The Dual Moonroof offers a view of the skies above from the front to the back of the Sienna. Daydreaming is easy when you have a beautiful view overhead. And one simple push of a button can open up to let the outside air in. Ideal for those days when the weather is perfect and you want a bit more openness on your journey.
Oh, but don’t think that just because you are in the 3rd row that you cannot experience the luxury of the others passengers. The furthest back seat of the Sienna offers a 60/40 split. And whereas it is very handy when you are loading the cargo area with larger items, it also allows for lounging. Each seat can recline separately giving the back seat passengers the option to sprawl out a bit as well. Not to mention, there is a headphone jack in the 3rd row area that means the kids can plug in an extra set of headphones and listen to their movie showing overhead.
Finally, as minute a thing as it may seem, the middle row passengers have the option to roll down their windows. To my kids… this is a big deal! Other minivans we had owned in the past did not have this option, so the kids enjoyed it. Not only do both windows on the side doors open, but they also feature retractable sunshades. No need to worry about the sun in your face as you’re lounging with your feet up. Just pull up the shade and enjoy the ride. Plus, if you are in the 3rd row, you still are not left out. The back side windows pop open for your own breath of fresh air.
All in all, no matter where you ride in the 2014 Toyota Sienna, you are going to have a great ride. From the front to the back, luxury abounds and you are no longer riding in the minivan of times past. This Toyota will be taking you on a whole new adventure… even when your view is from the back seat.
