Since it's still very fresh from the ground up, the upcoming 2022 Toyota Sienna Hybrid minivan is likely to remain unchanged. However, for the 2022 model year, the Sienna Hybrid will get a new rugged Woodland Edition. Coming up as an off-road-oriented model, the Woodland Edition will get an aggressive body kit, higher ground clearance, standard AWD, and a lift kit. Everything else shall remain the same as the 2021 model. MSRP for the 2022 Toyota Sienna Hybrid minivan is expected to range between $35,000 to $52,000 which again is very familiar. With additional standard features and some extra muscle, the Woodland Edition could be the most expensive Sienna model in 2022.

2022 Toyota Sienna hybrid Minivan Features

The 2022 Toyota Sienna will be available in 6 trim levels including the new Woodland Edition. With no major changes doing the rounds, the 2022 Toyota Sienna Hybrid minivan shall also retain the pricing and feature distribution in each of these trims. The range shall kick off with the base LE model at $34,500, similar to the current model. 

The base model would still carry features like automatic LED headlights, dual power sliding doors, 17-inch alloys, rear spoiler, three-zone climate control, and keyless entry. The tech-vault would still feature 9.0-inch touchscreen infotainment with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, safety connect, and Toyota Safety Sense 2.0.

The base model of the current 2021 Toyota Sienna is pretty decently equipped according to its price. However, start climbing the trim ladder and the Sienna opens up a host of luxury features like an integrated refrigerator, heated front, and second-row seat as well as premium leather upholstery to name a few. With no severe changes on the cards, the 2022 Toyota Sienna Hybrid minivan would also offer a similar composition. 

Apart from the regular trims and specifications though, we can expect the new woodland trim to be priced higher because of the expensive standard features like AWD, roof racks, a 1500-watt power outlet, and a standard tow hitch. While the current models of the Toyota Sienna are essentially FWD, you can hook the optional AWD to any of the trims. The range-topping Woodland model is also expected to get some unique exterior and interior trims and exclusive wheel options. 

Release Date:

While Toyota is yet to make an official statement, we expect the 2022 Toyota Sienna Hybrid minivan to hit stores around fall 2021. 

We Recommend

We recommend going with the “Limited” model and pairing it up with the optional AWD. For its price, the Limited model gets ample features like Simulated Leather Upholstery, Leather Steering, Navigation, Wireless Charging, Four-Zone Climate Control, Power Front Seats, and more. The optional AWD system arms the Sienna with better confidence and all-weather proofing. 

2022 Toyota Sienna hybrid Minivan Engine and Performance

7.5/10

The 2022 Toyota Sienna will carry over its hybrid powertrain that replaced the powerful V6 a year ago. It now uses a 2.5-liter inline-4 engine paired with two electric motors for a combined output of 245 hp and 176 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent through the front wheels with an electronic CVT transmission. Unlike regular CVT transmissions that exhibit a rubber band-like behavior, the Sienna is smooth and fast without any lag thanks to the instant power from the electric motors. This is the same hybrid powertrain that also sits underneath the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid and the Highlander Hybrid. 

The electric motors at the front axle are rated at 180 hp and 199 lb-ft of torque, while the AWD models also use a rear electric motor instead of a driveshaft which produces 54 hp and 89 lb-ft of torque. The Sienna is also capable of all-electric driving at low speeds thanks to the 1.9 kWh nickel-hydride battery. The new Woodland trim gets the AWD system as standard and is able to send 80% of the torque to the rear wheels in unfavorable conditions. 

With a combined output of 245 hp, the hybrid powertrain is less powerful than the old V6 engine which produced 296 hp. This power deficit is noticeable when driving around with a full load of passengers on steep hills. But despite the lower performance, the hybrid powertrain more than makes up for it with excellent efficiency figures. The instant torque from the electric motors helps in day-to-day driving by providing good low-end drivability. Even with a full load, the Sienna will happily chug along in most scenarios.

*2021 MY data used for reference

When pushed harder, a 2021 Toyota Sienna Hybrid races from 0-60 MPH in 7.7 seconds. Despite its hybridization, it's just 1.0 seconds slower than the V6 engine and crosses the quarter-mile in 15.8 seconds. Sitting on Toyota’s new TNGA-K platform, the fourth-gen Sienna gets a new multilink rear suspension for enhanced grip and handling. The steering is now quicker and more communicative while the new platform adds to its structural rigidity. 

With the Sienna V6 out of the picture, the Honda Odyssey is the fastest of the bunch, hitting 60 MPH in just 6.5 seconds followed by the new Kia Carnival which takes just 7.0 seconds. Both the Toyota Sienna and Chrysler Pacifica are slower than their non-hybrid competitors, taking 7.7 and 7.9 seconds respectively to hit 60 MPH. Even in terms of raw power, the gasoline rivals have an edge here but not by a very great margin. 

2022 Toyota Sienna hybrid Minivan Fuel Economy

9.0/10

Because of the standard hybrid powertrain, the Toyota Sienna is the most efficient minivan in its class with a 36 MPG combined fuel economy. Coupled with a large 18-gallon fuel tank, the fourth-gen 2021 Sienna also gets an overwhelming combined driving range of 648 miles. 

At low speeds, the 1.9 kWh battery in the Sienna allows all-electric driving, adding to its economy. Both the Toyota Sienna and Chrysler Pacifica offer excellent efficiency figures thanks to the hybrid powertrain, but the SIenna is more efficient because of the smaller engine and lower performance.

In comparison, the Honda Odyssey and Kia Carnival with their standard V6 engines are a lot less efficient with around 22 MPG combined. The Chrysler Pacifica also gets a smaller tank, limiting its range compared to the Sienna. Well, Toyota does know customer needs pretty well. 

2022 Toyota Sienna hybrid Minivan Interior

8.5/10

The 2022 Sienna is expected to get the same interiors with minimal changes. No grouse at all since the newly redesigned fourth-gen 2021 Sienna has one of the best cabins in its segment. The interior layout now looks more like an SUV and there is plenty of space on the inside with supportive seats on all three rows. It also gets an ample 33.5 cu-ft of cargo space with all the three-rows up. The cargo bay is not as large as its rivals but can accommodate most of your usual luggage.

Like a typical minivan, the front seats are very spacious with a wide center console and plenty of clever storage spaces. Move on to the second row and you’re greeted with wide opening sliding doors that even get hand-free function on the higher trims. Other than the base LE trim, all higher models are available with dual captain seats in the middle with plenty of legroom and headroom on offer just like the front seats. They also offer up to 25 inches of sliding, liberating plenty of space if required. The top trims also get a flip-up leg rest for even more comfort. 

Jump into the third row by sliding the middle seats forward and you’re greeted with a surprising amount of space enough for three adults. Like most minivans, both the second and third rows can be folded or removed to liberate plenty of cargo space. Unfortunately, the top trims equipped with the sliding middle row captain chairs cannot be removed, limiting practicality. Overall build quality is excellent though with a generous amount of wooden trim uplifting the ambiance.

2022 Toyota Sienna hybrid Minivan Exterior

9.0/10

With the recent redesign, the Toyota Sienna received a lot of SUV-inspired design elements which has worked in its favor. Even though the silhouette remains the same, the fourth-gen Sienna sits on Toyota’s new TNGA-K architecture with a 1.2-inch longer wheelbase. The new Sienna looks sportier with a lot of aggressive creases and a steep windshield. The LE, XLE, and XSE models get a sportier design with blacked-out trim, and lower body aero and rocker panels. 

While the top-end Limited and platinum models go the opposite way with a lot of chrome badging and bright wheels. The new Woodland edition will get its own unique styling and paint job with standard roof rails, dark chrome accents tow hitch, and unique exterior badging. The unique design also extends to the interiors with black sport-trimmed seats and an overall black theme.

In terms of exterior presentation, the Toyota Camry inspired sharp front grille and bumper blends really well with the new sleek headlamps and stronger body curves for a premium presence. Even at the rear, the sleek new tail lamps along with the reworked boot-lid and rear spoiler add a good dose of sportiness to its rear fascia. Despite its long wheelbase, the fourth-gen Toyota Sienna is very finely proportioned. 

The overall exterior design follows Toyota’s modern design philosophy with a huge grille at the front and sleek wrap-around headlights. Because of its hybrid powertrain, the Toyota badges get a blue hue underneath and are placed on a gloss black trim at the front. The SUV styling is evident with flared wheel arches at the rear extending to the taillights. Some of its key exterior features are listed below for a quick look:

  • Signature BI-LED projector headlights
  • Wide-angle LED fog lights
  • Dual power sliding doors
  • Power sunroof 
  • Black/Chrome roof rails
  • Keyless entry
  • Rain sensing wipers
  • Large chrome front-grille with black accents

2022 Toyota Sienna hybrid Minivan Competition

6.0/10

Toyota Sienna Hybrid vs Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid

Both the Siena and the Pacifica get a Hybrid powertrain, with the Pacifica producing more power. The Pacifica still remains the best-selling minivan thanks to its comfortable ride and feature-rich cabin. Unlike the Pacifica, the Sienna gets a firmer ride and lacks some important features including removable second-row captain seats, limiting its reach. Overall, the Pacifica is still the better option of the two. 

Toyota Sienna Hybrid vs Honda Odyssey

Both these minivans here received a complete refresh last year with plenty of feature additions. But, the standard hybrid powertrain and more features like AWD are exclusive to the Sienna, making it a lot easier to live with. There is also a steep difference in efficiency since the Odyssey still uses a normal V6 engine. But when it comes to overall usability and better handling, the Odyssey comes out on top. If fuel savings are not your priority, then the Odyssey is still the better buy. 

Toyota Sienna Hybrid vs Kia Carnival

The all-new redesigned Kia Carnival is now the biggest competitor to the Toyota Sienna, offering significantly more space on the inside and more practicality. Both the minivans get SUV-inspired styling with higher ground clearances. The Carnival also offers more value compared to the Sienna, especially with the excellent standard warranty packages. However, the Carnival still doesn’t offer AWD or a hybrid powertrain which limits its reach compared to the Sienna. 

2022 Toyota Sienna hybrid Minivan Final Verdict

Even though there are no major changes slated for 2022 MY, except the Woodland edition, the 2022 Toyota Sienna Hybrid is still one of the best minivans on the market with plenty of space and practicality. Although the removal of the V6 powertrain was controversial, the hybrid powertrain is powerful enough and a lot more efficient. There are plenty of options to choose from, and all models continue to get a plethora of safety features, making it the best choice for a growing family.
