The Toyota Sienta will be launched in Indonesia come April, according to internal sources at Toyota. The Yaris-based Sienta will fit in between the Toyota Avanza and Kijang Innova in the Indonesian market, reports AutoNetMagz.

Further details have been disclosed regarding the Indonesian variant. For one, the B-segment MPV is said to be available with both power-sliding and manually-operable doors. In addition to that, the Sienta will feature a double blower (not available in Japan) for rear passengers, and a different set of seats.

As for the engine, the Sienta is said to be coming with the same mill currently found in the Toyota Yaris, which is a 1NZ-FE 1.5 litre unit with 109 PS and 141 Nm. That said, the Sienta hybrid will not be available there, due to taxes.


In another report, the Toyota Sienta will be built at PT Toyota Motor Manufacturing Indonesia’s new Factory II in Karawang, West Java. Production capacity of the Sienta will amount to about 25,000 units. Out of that number, 80% will be for the domestic market, while the rest will be exported.

Indonesia will reportedly be the second production base for the Sienta after Japan. With that, there’s a possibility that the Toyota Sienta could make its way over to our shores as well. So guys, if it ever makes its way here, would this unique-looking MPV interest you?
