- LA 2009: 2011 Toyota Sienna could wear a Lexus badge — Autoblog
Wow, those rear seats are fantastic!
PS. Never though that I would say such a thing about a Toyota
Wow! Nice interior!
Think of words to discribe how it looks...ukeface: yup that is it.
Why did they need to put an upside down pipe on the dash?
Well, besides the hideous center console, the rest of this van is good. Coming from a house that has owned many minivans, this is really good. Especially those rear seats. Great for long journeys.
Yeah whatever Toyota/Lexus, when are they going to stop doing this sorta half arsed rebadging?
Regardless of Rebaging the car looks outstanding for a Minivan.
Wow look at that tv..talk about widescreen..
everyone looks like danny devito on there..
A very nice van..i want it for a couple of weeks..throw my cousins in there and go on a Euro roap trip
Putting all Toyota/Lexus hatred aside, that's a NICE van!!
I have a town and country, and in comparison, this blows it out of the water.
I can just imagine how awesome those rear seats will be for long trips.
The video does a great job diverting attention away from the recall crisis.
I hate minivans.
Yes the seats are nice but that dash is awful
Wow… it deserves a Geely badge. :eusa_clap
Nice to see the third row passengers get treated like THIRD class passengers. No leather, looks like a cheap taxi bench. Must be the punishment section for the kids.
How utterly absurd. For what is supposedly the most sophisticated consumer market out there, the American car buying public must be rather thick if they keep falling for this Toyota re-badging bullshit. Fair enough the styling and interior looks like some foul hybrid of Toyota's and Lexus's current styling themes, but if they tried this sort of half arsed re-badging in markets such as Europe and Australia etc. the Lexus badge would lose quite a bit of whatever credibility it does have.
At least when MB and BMW delivered their minivans (r-class and 5-GT) what they offered is relatively bespoke. This thing probably drives like a Toyota would too.
Can't believe I'm about to "defend" a Toyota Minivan of all things, but the article's headline is misleading...
I was confused at first by the article's poorly constructed headline. This isn't destined for re-badging. The author is trying to make the point that this Toyota is as nice and luxurious as a Lexus. It is poorly worded, since the headline at first glance makes it seem like Toyota is considering re-badging the car as a Lexus.
The third row appears upholdersted in the same leather as the other seats, as seen in the pictures. The backs of the third row seats are carpeted, because they fold flat.
Not sure what distant galaxy you reside in now, but where do you see a Lexus minivan? .... this IS a Toyota..and is badged a Toyota.
What re-badging bullshit are you referring to? You mean how Lexus products share a lot with their Toyota counterparts? ... no different to VW and Audi.
Having lived in Australia between 1990 and 2008..and now past year and half in USA, I think you're letting your negative bias towards Toyota get the better of you. Toyota is the strongest brand over there, and they're having no problems selling those same re-badged bullshit Lexus vehicles that they sell in America. ....and VW and Audi aren't facing any problems either. No loss of credibility whatsoever.
