2015 Toyota Sienna Named Family Car and Minivan of Texas
Every year, the Texas Automotive Writers Association (TAWA) holds its Auto Roundup event to determine which vehicles it recommends most in varying categories. This year, the 2015 Toyota Sienna was named in not one, but two categories—Family Car of Texas and Minivan of Texas.
In order to decide on the best vehicles in various segments, TAWA spends one day at the Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth driving 54 vehicles before voting on their favorites in 18 separate categories. The Toyota Sienna stood out thanks to it being the only minivan to offer all-wheel-drive. Additionally, its upscale interior and available entertainment features, as well as its Driver Easy Speak function, made it an obvious pick in the Family Car and Minivan segments.
“As the only van in its segment available with all-wheel drive, the recognition as Family Car of Texas confirms our efforts to keep the family van alive and thriving,” commented KC Kirimoto, vice president of product and global communications for Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc. “Toyota’s commitment to enhancing the 2015 Sienna was focused not only on new safety features, but also the convenience and comfort of every member of the family.”
The Sienna isn’t just a top pick for TAWA—it’s also a top pick for anyone looking for a family-friendly vehicle that has swagger. At least, that’s what Busta Rhymes thinks.
