We’ve had a fun couple of months. As you know Dave and I are in the market for a new vehicle.
This post is sponsored by Toyota and Toyota Sienna provided for 3-month test drive.
That’s why we are excited about the Toyota Sienna. It has lots of wonderful features and we’ve enjoyed the time with it to determine if this 7-passenger minivan is a fit for us.We are a family who loves to be on the road, whether cruising around or road tripping. While out and about it’s nice to have entertainment options to make the drive more enjoyable. That’s why I’m excited to share some of our favorite entertainment features of the Toyota Sienna.
It is nice to have them so happy and content while traveling. We are very lucky and they are great on long trips but the tv really makes it all more enjoyable for them.
Dave and I love that the kids can watch a movie or play a game and pop on the headphones and we can listen to the radio, SiriusXM, a CD, or use the Bluetooth to connect to playlists on our phone. The entertainment options really offer something for everyone.
I like how easy it is to switch between them as well. You can even set multiple lists of favorites. For example, there are 3 screens of SiriusXM favorites. This is wonderful because as you know there are hundreds of satellite radio stations and this makes it much easier to find the ones you like best.
You can also flip through the AM and FM options with the touch of a button.
I do have to be honest and wish that they would have put the tuning, seek, and track buttons closer to the driver and the volume dial closer to the passenger. I don’t use the tuning button often but when I do want to flip to a station that’s not in my favorites, it’s quite a stretch across the console. The same goes for the passenger who wants to turn the volume up, they have to reach way across to do so. These are small matters but would be nice if they were more conveniently located.
The CD changer is tucked away nicely and looks futuristic and fancy when you are changing a CD. It can hold up to 6 CDs and has MP3/WMA capability.
The Bluetooth option is fun and may be my favorite. I love being able to stream music from my compatible phone or device using the Bluetooth wireless technology. There is also a USB port so you can connect directly to play tunes or use it to charge your devices.
The display is a touchscreen and when using the radio or Satellite options it tells you the name and artist of the song playing. It’s easy to flip through the stations and all of your options with the touch of the screen.
The steering wheel controls also make it all easy to manage without taking your hands off the wheels. You can change the volume, maneuver through stations, and change the mode (radio, SiriusXM, CD, etc) all with the push of a thumb or a finger.
We really enjoy all of the entertainment options in the Toyota Sienna and look forward to using it every day. These features have made our daily errands and family road trips even more fun.
