Green Car Awards for 2021 Toyota Sienna Limited
With a standard hybrid powertrain across all trims and an array of new tech and amenities, the 2021 Toyota Sienna raises the bar for style, safety, comfort, versatility and fuel efficiency in its segment.
“The fuel efficiency of this all-new 2021 Sienna makes it a cut above the rest,” said Bob Carter, Toyota Motor North America’s (TMNA) executive vice president of sales. “This award just further highlights our dedication to hybrids in North America and we’re humbly honored to have the new Sienna be recognized as the Family Green Car of the Year for 2021.”
The fourth-gen Sienna, designed by the combined effort of CALTY’s Newport Beach, CA and Ann Arbor, MI studios, delivers a combination of room, comfort, convenience, fuel efficiency and versatility. The 2021 Sienna’s Toyota Hybrid System II delivers 245 total horsepower and an EPA-estimated 36 combined MPG fuel economy, the latter setting a benchmark for the segment, all while operating seamlessly and transparently.
