UMW Toyota has announced the introduction of the 2018 Toyota Sienta, which has been updated with additional accessories and features, with no increase in price. Previously available in two trim levels, the Sienta is now available only in higher-spec 1.5V form, the 1.5G being dropped from the line-up with this update.

On top of specifications seen on the Sienta at its point of introduction in August 2016, the seven-seat MPV now comes with an upgraded 6.9-inch DVD-AVX touchscreen infotainment system, which is equipped with Bluetooth connectivity, HDMI, an SD card input and a reverse camera. The previously offered optional 7.0-inch touchscreen DVD-AVN system, which adds on GPS-based navigation to the equation, continues to be available.

The Sienta is now equipped with a USB charging port in the second row for added convenience as well as a removable trunk mat for the rear cargo area. Also new to the Sienta is an optional Panoramic View Monitor parking assist camera system, with external views presented via the infotainment system screen – opting for it adds on RM2,332 to the Sienta’s price tag.

Otherwise, no mechanical changes, the Sienta continuing on with a 1.5 litre 2NR-FE four-cylinder engine offering 107 PS at 6,000 rpm and 140 Nm at 4,200 rpm, the mill paired with a CVT with seven virtual ratios.

Equipment-wise, the Sienta 1.5V features bi-LED headlights with LED positioning lights, 16-inch machined-finish alloy wheels, an acoustic windscreen, keyless entry, push-button start and an Optitron instrument cluster. Other items on the kit list include automatic air-conditioning, a leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel and twin electric sliding doors.

The Toyota Sienta 1.5V is priced at RM97,000 on-the-road without insurance, and comes with a five-year, unlimited-mileage warranty. Check out for details specifications of the Toyota Sienta.
