Toyota Sienta MPV launched in Malaysia, fr RM93k

Sienta Launch Main

It doesn’t seem so but the Toyota Sienta has not been officially launched in Malaysia, until this morning.

Here’s the timeline. We gave you a first look at Sienta in April, from Indonesia where the funky-looking MPV made its local and ASEAN debut. A month later, UMW Toyota Motor (UMWT) previewed the seven-seater locally, and since then, we’ve had periodic waves of info including a showroom appearance, the release of official pricing and product videos.

The Sienta’s origins as a JDM model is clear from its unconventional styling, a big departure from ASEAN-oriented Toyota MPVs such as the Innova, Avanza and the new Calya. Sienta chief engineer Hiroshi Kayukawa says that Toyota had, from start, plans to sell the second-gen Sienta outside of Japan. The CE, who is in town for the launch, had driven in Indonesia, Thailand and Malaysia (including a drive up to Genting Highlands) as part of his research.

At 4,235 mm long, 1,695 mm wide and 1,695 mm tall, the Sienta is around the size of the Perodua Alza, being 35 mm shorter and 75 mm taller (same width). The wheelbase is 2,750 mm long, matching the Alza. The ASEAN-market Sienta – made in Indonesia for the region – has a 25 mm higher ground clearance than its Japanese-market equivalent, at 170 mm.

The Sienta is powered by a 1.5 litre four-cylinder engine making 107 PS at 6,000 rpm and 140 Nm at 4,200 rpm, mated to a CVT with seven virtual ratios. The 2NR-FE Dual VVT-i engine is from the same modern NR family as the 1.3L unit in the Avanza and Perodua Bezza. Drive goes to the front wheels.

Two trim levels are available, the 1.5G and the top 1.5V. The V model comes with all the bells and whistles, including bi-LED headlights with LED positioning lights, 16-inch machine-finish alloy wheels and light guides for the tail lights. The base 1.5G makes do with halogen headlamps, 15-inch rims and plain LED tail lights (no LED signatures). Both models get LED daytime running lights.

The Sienta’s dashboard design is as wacky as the exterior, with a dual-tier dash sporting a Peugeot 208-style high-mounted instrument cluster. The centre console with unique air-con controls, floor-mounted gearlever and added storage space is different from the JDM model, as is a rear air-con blower – but the novel way in which the third-row seats “dive in” under the one-touch tumble second-row seats has been retained.

A note on the floor vs column-mounted shifter. According to Kayukawa, the ASEAN Sienta’s floor shifter location is to accommodate a manual transmission (available in Indonesia), while the JDM Sienta is CVT-only. Also, our CVT model comes with manual mode, which is not present in the domestic model. Ease of use and fuel efficiency is the main priority for minivan customers in Japan.

The V spec car comes with goodies such as an acoustic windscreen, keyless entry, push-button start, Optitron instruments, a Camry-style colour multi-info display, automatic air-con, a 6.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with voice control and a reverse camera. Also included is brown fabric upholstery, a leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel, twin electric sliding doors, premium security and solar tinting and a locally-fitted digital video recorder (dash cam).

The G spec Sienta gets none of the above, and is instead equipped with a 2-DIN Bluetooth-enabled head unit, black upholstery and a single electric sliding door on the passenger (left) side.

Safety equipment is identical on both models, which is good. All Sienta buyers get three airbags (dual front plus driver’s knee), ABS with EBD and brake assist, Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Hill-start Assist Control (HAC) and Isofix child seat anchors on the outer second-row seats. The Sienta has not been crash tested by ASEAN NCAP yet, but Toyota expects a five-star rating.

Options include a RM2,109 DVD-AVX touchscreen infotainment system with reverse camera for the 1.5G, a RM3,169 DVD-AVN navigation system and a RM2,014 upgrade to the DVD-AVN system for 1.5V buyers. Buyers of the G and opt for either the RM1,166 “Toyota Essential Solar Film” or the RM2,109 “Toyota Premium Security & Solar Film”. The latter is standard on the V.

The CBU imported from Indonesia Sienta 1.5G starts at RM92,900, while the 1.5V retails for RM99,900, both on-the-road with insurance, inclusive of a five-year, unlimited-mileage warranty. Seeing that the difference between trims is just RM7,000, the V’s much longer spec sheet appears to be the better deal. What do you think of this funky new entry?

    So overpriced. UMW should concentrate on their existing cars and give Malaysians VSC and more airbags. Bread and butter Vios and Altis until today got no VSC.

    So malu. Rm139k car got only 2 airbags and no VSC

    Camry RM160k car also got no VSC and 2 airbags.

    Why even bother launching new cars when your existing cars are not safe?

          When the Proton boys can’t afford a model, they say it is overpriced. But back to the origin, it is their beloved Proton to cause Malaysian cars so expensive. These Proton budak only support Proton with empty talk and saliva, none of they put it into action (buy da junk), that’s why Proton has to beg RM1.5bil pocket money.

          Thanks , Paul for highlighting the difference between avanza and Sienta.
          However,I was overly concerned about the VERY PREMIUM pricing adopted by UMW.
          Cant they make it more affordable?
          Just like Tan Chong …where the renault prices have been slashed rm 20-40K ? I am not saying they shouln’t make profits.
          Somemore,I have experienced a very mediocre level of service from UMW when my Toyota gave some teething problems.
          Toyota is a GLOBAL money spinner,but for some here,it cost an arm or leg.

            Alternatively, buy local cars or other foreign brand other than Toyota. (which most likely there will be pricing issue for you too if you feel their pricing should set closer to P1 or P2)

      more practical & more power yet economical.
      Paultan, get ready to review both Sienta & BR-V. ;)

      bright seats not a good things for kids, well they tend to mess things up. cream interior worst like the Livina.

      Ya lor.I called him Insaf John lately,but I think I better call him Bodowi John.
      I challenged him to visit my PJ showroom where I was top in sales,selling Rolls Royce.
      But he never turned up.He chickened out,but talks rubbish most of the time.
      At Toyota,they yell out “Nak fikir lagi ? Tak payah,beli je “.Discount rm10 ribu.
      At Rolls Royce,we say ,”Datuk/Datin…we are very honoured to have Datuk/Datin visiting us today.May I show Datuk/Datin our latest top specs Royce….”
      Kunta,I close 3 deals last month.To match that Bodowi john has to close 20 P2 deals.

    Since Bezza launch, Paultan always associate Toyota’s NR engine with Bezza’s due to its family-sibling relations. UMW keeps on selling Toyota with ‘FE’ designated engine while Perodua was given the ‘VE’ engine. The ‘VE’-spec engine is indeed a lower cost version of the ‘FE’, just like what offered in Indonesia low MPV (Calya, Xenia, Avanza).

    This Sienta should be the successor for Alza (RM50-60K). Malaysians had being spare-changed all this while. To get ‘better’ engines (or what the Japs or Europeans are enjoying the ‘FE’ equipped models at much cheaper prices), we are forced to pay more.

    This MPV reminds me of the quirky Honda Freed, which was a runaway seller in Indonesia but fared poorly in Malaysia. However, after sitting in (and poking around) in a show unit in IOI Resort City Mall recently, I’d have to say the Sienta has potential to attract existing Avanza owners as well as those looking to buy a bigger vehicle. The quality seems good and space is abundant. I’d even wager that this is a suitable Uber/Grab vehicle…

  • During my time in Japan, the Sienta was a common sight, buzzing around the narrow streets of Kyoto and Tokyo silently(they don’t turn on noisy air conditioner during my time in Japan)!It’s not something everyone will agree as a looker, but for me amongst the wacky Kei-cars and JDM vehicles, it looked part of the scenery, on Malaysian streets however, filled with gray scaled cars and kamikaze kapchais it would drfinitely be an interesting sight and the quirky looks really strikes my fancy.

    Trying out the Sienta at the nearby roadshows last weekend I actually like the interior the most. No is not European Advantgarde, But it’s quirky and identifiably Japanese as Gundam, Manga and *cough JAV. Orange seats and slope up quirky interior. The room inside is no Alphard, but it does the family business pretty well and there’s a certain element of ‘fun’ that I find lacking in modern cars today, they seem to matured and dull inside.

    pricing is typical UMW, I don’t understand the existence of the low spec car considering the disparity between it and the V, but the V ticks almost every box for specs and I can even argue to an extend safety as well, given VSC is standard and I’m pretty sure there will be some simpleton already commented the untrue absence of it. . All in all I’m not sure weather will it be a hit, the looks and design is controversial, I absolutely love it as it brings some colours and creativity to the market, I’m just not sure weather the masses agrees with me. Perhaps suited to those just starting their family, who have fondness of their childhood growing up with Dragon Ball, The Ghibli movies and Evangelion. Because shockingly, this is a Toyota that manage to be opposite of the stereotype dull and similar Toyota b

    The pricing is actually reasonable per se being sold in Malaysia (for the decent safety features + accessories, unlike previous keranda-keranda beroda by UMWT). The price tag ranges from ¥ 1.69 – ¥ 2.33 million in Japan (RM 67,488.00 – RM 93,071.00). But only get the top spec though in my personal opinion if any of you are willing to buy this car from UMWT.

    Well at least this is a ‘real Toyota’, unlike the rebadged Toyolta Rush, a rebadged Daihatsu Terios, made in Indonesia. And in the same price range, both with 7 seaters.
    Still, in Japan this car costs less than RM80k and with all the duties plus lots of profit margin, the OTR price here becomes RM92K -100K .
    If this model comes in CKD form, the price will drop significantly.

  • Sometimes some Malaysians can’t do their math correctly but depending on emotion instead..hence buying because of its car cum shoes design rather then looking at their long term budget (most declared bankrupts are those involve hire purchase)…yeah yeah work hard some Joe rich says pls look at the spec vs price..is it reasonable?..for RM99k i’ll go for 1.8 livina..UMW damn Tamak..

    i actually like it…if u have a small family is brilliantly practical , i know the price might seem a tad high , bt the Freed was more than 100k…..
    its sting very different to whats available….very visually striking , those who are comparing to Alza really have no clue…and im not even gonna explain why…

    Saw quite a number of Sientas in Osaka/Kyoto during Sakura season this year, despite recently launched there at that time.

    That exterior and interior… let’s just say it is not to my liking.

    Price is overpriced. Wait for Honda BRV and compare then.

    This MPV is for 7 people, and UMW got the nerve to provide only THREE airbags? UMW your math failed….

    VSC should have been included like at least 3 years ago.

    Don’t forget also joining this year is the new Toyota Innova which is a major departure from current generation. Doubt it will be priced below RM100k…..

    This sienta in Indonesia selling at price Rm90K.In malaysia, selling at Rm99K.Different around 9K only.Price cheaper than malaysia bcos this is CBU from indonesia.How can you expect cheap than Indonesia?Besides, the spec from sienta was very good.Although only 3 air bags but safety feature like VSC,TRC,HAC,ABS,EBD are good enough.Even Altis also full spec Rm138K only have VSC and TRC.So with 99k, you get all this good feature is consider very good.This car design for 1500cc due to car is small and fuel saving.It is very suitable and convenience for old folk and children at 2nd row.Please go showroom and test drive before comments.This sienta have better legroom at 3rd row compare to ALza and Livina.

      This is really true. Tested them, and turns out that Sienta is the most practical car compared to Nissan Livina, P2 Alza, and especially, the over-priced Recon Toyota Wish (2011)

    Had the chance to drive into a Toyota showroom in Gombak today and the usual “bad service” of toyota salesmen..
    1. 5 of them behind counter and had no initiative to greet me and my wife, all 5 just looked at us blank.

    2. After i requested to preview the Sienta parked infront of the showroom, did a sales guy walk out andd say “sure..help yourself to preview”.

    3. He walked out 2mins later and gave us the suspicious look, “as if we were gonna steal the car”. And he didn’t bring the brochure or price list and din’t bother to introduce himself or the car. I had to do all the asking… which at half way through asking, my wife was pissed and had no more interest, as the sales guy didn’t seem keen to do a sale.

    4. To Toyota.. shame on the trainings given and congrats for continuous loosing of sales and traction in the car market, thanks to poor attitude of salesmen.

    The Sienta;
    Exterior looks cute and fun. Especially love the sliding doors.

    Interior, the seats, OMG are so poorly assembled and so thin and no contour to shape, it feels like a Nissan Vanette C22 seat. Go check it out and you will say, OMG !

    Honestly, for RM 99k (the high spec), definately NOT worth to buy. No perks,nor comfort in the Sienta.

    For RM 99k, you could opt for a Mazda 2 (interior is fully loaded and leather seats.) or maybe grab an Avanza which you would have lots of savings in the bank.

    Already test-drive the car, good handling and quiet interior compare to my wife’s Avanza. Considering to switch from Avanza to this car. The practicality is much better than Avanza, especially with five kids on board, and my wife loves it.

    And i drive a 3.0 Hilux. We’re Toyota Tribe. Peace.
