The Toyota Sienta (Japanese: トヨタ・シエンタ, Toyota Shienta) is a mini MPV with sliding doors manufactured by Toyota. It was introduced in September 2003, based on the Vitz subcompact car, and is available at all Japanese network dealerships. The Sienta is currently sold in Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Indonesia, Taiwan, Laos and Thailand.

The "Sienta" name is derived from the Spanish word "siete", which means "seven" (referring to its maximum passenger capacity) and English word "entertain".

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 VVT-i petrol engine capable of 82 kW (110 hp; 111 PS) 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 the third quarter of 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. It ditched 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 lamps.[7]

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 (77 mpg‑imp; 64 mpg‑US) under the Japanese JC08 cycle test, making it eligible for eco-car subsidies and tax incentives. The non-hybrid Sienta returns 20.6 km/L (58 mpg‑imp; 48 mpg‑US) in FWD configuration. A “Stop & Start System” is offered as standard.[8] 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 X, G, Hybrid X and Hybrid G trim levels in Japan.
