Earlier this month, your Toyota dealership near San Diego, CA, Toyota Chula Vista, was thrilled to learn that our impressive, versatile, and reliable minivan, the 2016 Toyota Sienna, had been named one of the Top 10 Best Family Cars of the Year as well as the Best Minivan of 2016 by Edmunds.com and Parents magazine. Keep reading to find out more about these great honors!

The rankings for the Top 10 Best Family Cars of the Year were based on factors that included quality of ride, safety, comfort and capacity, fuel efficiency, kid-friendly features, price and value, reliability, safety, interior and exterior style and craftsmanship, visibility, controls, special features, and ergonomics. The editors of Parents magazine had this to say about the 2016 Toyota Sienna:

The endlessly roomy Sienna stands above its competition for two reasons: it’s the only minivan with available all-wheel drive, and the especially user-friendly controls help you stay focused on the road.

The designers and manufacturers of the 2016 Toyota Sienna wanted to create a minivan that helped make parenting easier. For starters, the rear seats of the minivan are equipped with four LATCH locations for securing child safety seats. The minivan also features the Toyota brand’s Driver Speak Easy option, which uses a microphone from the voice-command telematics system to convey the driver’s voice through the audio system’s rear speakers. It also features a Dual-View Entertainment Center that has two displays within a 16.4-inch widescreen that has Blu-Ray capability, an HDMI input, and an SD card reader that can play 10 different audio and video formats from two separate sources.
