Road Trip – Around Town or Out of Town
The Toyota Sienna is the perfect mini van for “road tripping”. Whether you are an “uber mom” and are taxiing your kiddos around town or heading out of town for that soccer tournament- the Sienna has all the perks you need.
First off, I am a sucker for a sunroof. Even better when it’s a double!
One of my fave features on the Sienna is the “distance to empty” gauge on the dashboard display. When I am running the kids around town, I often lose track of when I last filled up. This handy little tool lets me know when I need to gas up again. So I can time it just so, ya know. And it will even help you find a gas station when it’s time to fill up.
The kids were especially excited about the video system in this van- widescreen baby! Perfect for making those out of town road trips a little more bearable.
I always love to talk about the trunk space in the vehicles I test. This one does not disappoint. I felt like it was extra deep; big enough to hold groceries, home improvement supplies and sports gear. That net is a nice touch to keep things a little more organized as well.
I saw on the Toyota website that the Sienna has the nickname of “swagger wagon”. I would agree the special amenities not only make life easier for the busy mom- but add a cool factor too!
Writing on this blog has given me a platform to share with you about ways to save- time, money and sanity. A new twist on this is the opportunity to test drive some great vehicles. I hope my “mom’s take” on these cars will be helpful information if you are looking to purchase a new ride.
All opinions are mine, of course!
