It’s a long way from Los Angeles to New York, but two new Toyota models are so close to Keyes Toyota we can practically taste it (tastes like glass, steel and vulcanized rubber, in case you were wondering). The 2017 New York International Auto Show will feature the new 2018 Toyota Sienna and 2018 Toyota Yaris alongside 2017 Toyota models.
2018 Toyota Sienna
While the 2018 gets a mild exterior refresh, the bigger news comes on the safety front. The 2017 model already has a five-star NHTSA safety rating, and the 2018 model should be safer still. That’s thanks to Toyota Safety Sense (with dynamic radar cruise control, pedestrian detection with a pre-collision system, and lane departure alert with steering assist), which are now standard.
Also new: the an upgraded Toyota Entune 3.0 infotainment system, which has optional features like WiFi Connect alongside standard App Suite Connect. Opt for the higher trims and you can upgrade to a premium JBL Audio sound system.
2018 Toyota Yaris
The subcompact 2018 also gets updated inside and out. All trims — the three-door L and LE trims, plus the five-door SE trim — get stylistic updates outside (chrome on the lower trims, piano black on the SE). Sixteen-inch alloy wheels are also new for the SE.
Get inside and there’s even more. Depending on the trim, you’ll find everything from a new sport steering wheel to a new instrument panel and audio system. Toyota Entune finally comes to the Toyota Yaris, with drivers who opt for the SE getting Connected Navigation through Entune Audio Plus.
Whether you’re considering the model year or the calendar year, 2017 is looking good, but 2018 could be even better. Even though these new Toyota models won’t arrive in Los Angeles ’til later this year, you can see the full lineup of Toyota cars, trucks, SUVs and minivans at the Keyes Toyota showroom.
