Top specs, facts and figures

General info

1.Has fully independent suspension
Toyota Sienna XLE (2014)

This allows all four wheels to move up and down independently, providing a smoother ride when, for example, going over bumps in the road.

2. smaller turn radius

11.4m

The turn radius indicates the smallest circular turn a car can make. With a smaller turn radius it is easier to perform a U-turn in one attempt instead of having to reverse back and forth in order to turn around.

3.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
Toyota Sienna XLE (2014)

A petrol (gasoline) engine offers several advantages over diesel. For example the engines tend to be lighter and cheaper than their diesel counterparts. Petrol engines also tend to have higher horsepower, and the fuel is more readily available.

4.Has front-wheel drive
Toyota Sienna XLE (2014)

Front-wheel drive is the most common type of drivetrain and offers several advantages. It is cheaper to manufacture (reducing the cost of the vehicle) and also lighter which helps improve fuel economy. Due to having the weight of the engine over the drive wheels it also benefits from increased traction.

Dimensions

1. greater cargo volume

1107l

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.

4. longer wheelbase

3.03m

The wheelbase is the distance between the center of the front and rear wheels. A longer wheelbase provides the car with more stability and a smoother ride (although a shorter wheelbase can provide more responsive handling).

5. lower ground clearance

165mm

The ground clearance is the distance between the lowest point of the car and the road surface. A shorter ground clearance lowers a vehicle’s center of gravity - increasing its handling ability and reducing the chance of a rollover. However, a higher ground clearance allows you to go over more uneven terrain.
