The first generation Sienta was introduced in 2003 in Japan. The car can also be found in Hong Kong, Indonesia and Singapore through parallel imports.

The Sienta received a facelift in 2006, 3 years after its first production. New colors were added, such as Apple Green, Gun-Metal Grey, and Metallic Blue. Another upgrade found on the facelifted models is double electric-powered sliding doors.

Powered by a 1.5 L petrol VVT-i engine capable of 110 bhp (82 kW) at 6,000 rpm, the Sienta comes equipped with CVT. ABS and EBD are standard.

For the 2007 model year on Japanese models only, G-BOOK, a subscription telematics service, is offered as an option.

Toyota cut the Sienta from the lineup in Autumn 2010 due to its age, despite it still selling quite well. It was reintroduced unchanged (except for renamed trim levels and a new sports model, Sienta DICE, with a different design) in May 2011.

The second generation Sienta debuted on July 9, 2015. The second generation Sienta ditches the box-like shape of its predecessor for a new exterior design inspired by the shape of a trekking shoe[citation needed] and it features a large front grille as well as front and rear bumper garnishes that connects the lights.[6]

The minivan offers three interior layouts: 7-seater, 6-seater, and 5-seater (for wheelchair users). Interior space has been increased in all areas compared to the previous generation model. There is also a hybrid variant, which returns 27.2 km/L (3.6 l/100 km or 63.9 mpg US) under the Japan’s JC08 cycle test, making it eligible for eco-car subsidies and tax incentives. The non-hybrid Sienta returns 20.6 km/L (4.8 l/100 km or 48.4 mpg US) in FWD configuration. A “Stop & Start System” is offered as standard.[7] The second generation Sienta is also the first to be sold in Hong Kong, and is also available in Singapore.

The Sienta is available in G, X, Hybrid X and Hybrid G variant in Japan.

Toyota's official distributor in Indonesia, Toyota-Astra Motor, has announced the current generation of Sienta at the 2016 Indonesia International Motor Show on April 7, 2016. Production of the Indonesian-spec Sienta started at Toyota Motor Manufacturing Indonesia plant in Karawang, West Java in late June 2016 and went on sale on July 26, 2016. To meet the standard geological conditions in Indonesia, it is 20 mm higher than the Japanese market Sienta.
