Times have changed, tastes have changed, lifestyles have changed over decades and centuries. Our tastes and requirements for saloon cars have changed over time too, go back maybe 10 years ago, how many cars on the road are Multi-Purpose Vehicles (MPVs)? Now, look at the cars on the roads today, how many cars are MPVs?

The rise of the MPVs on our roads today, is attributed to a change, increase and diversification of our lifestyles, starting off as a transport to drive from point A to B, ferrying family and friends, going out for picnics and outings. The families today now do all of the above together. Therefore the MPV is the ideal solution today for the modern urban family.

The All-New MPV, the 2017 Toyota Sienta was recently launched in Singapore by Toyota’s authorised distributor, Borneo Motors Singapore. I had the opportunity to take a look at the 2017 Toyota Sienta recently and it looks like an ideal MPV for the young urban family with children.

Before I share more details and views on the 2017 Toyota Sienta, let me share some of my personal Toyota experiences over the years (I somehow have a kind of affinity with Toyota brand). My first car was a used 1982 Toyota Celica when I was studying in Queensland, Australia for my undergraduate program and I love it. While on a camping trip (during my uni days) to Fraser Island, Australia, we drove a Toyota Hilux 4WD! Our current family car is a Toyota Vios (need to start planning when the 10 year COE period is up next year), I also had the chance to drive other Toyota cars e.g. Altis, Wish. Oh yes, I visited a Toyota car showroom in Odaiba, Tokyo when I was backpacking in Japan during the year 2004.

Alright, now back to the current 2017 Toyota Sienta, the name “Sienta” is derived from two words, the Spanish word siete (“7”) and the English word “entertainment”. The 2017 Toyota Sienta is a 7 seater MPV, a reliable utility, fun and great for on-the-go with family and children. The Toyota Sienta comes in two variants – Sienta Standard and Sienta Elegance.

Let me bring you through a quick tour of the 2017 Toyota Sienta
