Imagine you have your hands full of groceries, your babies, luggage, boxes, or pretty much anything – and you always have to find a way to open your vehicle’s doors somehow. of another.
Have you ever had those times when your hands were so full that you couldn’t open your car door easily? Toyota Sienna just has the solution.
Building on the Smart Key concept that has been readily adopted by most new Toyota models, the 2021 Sienna has gone virtually hands-free this year.
The fourth-generation Sienna hits the market this month as an all-hybrid model that promises owners up to 36 miles per gallon. Plus, it’s packed with extra storage, convenience, technology, and security.
Including a clever way to open and close doors.
Hands-free Toyota Sienna 2021
The 2021 Sienna is offered in LE, XLE, XSE, Limited and Platinum trim levels. All XLE and higher trims come standard with a hands-free power tailgate with anti-lock protection. They also have two hands-free electric sliding side doors.
In other words, you operate it with your foot with a kicking motion. And guess what – it’s really easy to use.

How to use on 2021 Sienna
To use these hands-free functions, you will need to make settings in two places inside your new Sienna.
First, make sure the “Pwr Door Off” is not fully pushed in. If pressed, it will turn off the power function.
Then use the multi-information display behind the steering wheel to activate both the PSD (power side doors) and the PBD (power rear door). You can also change the volume of the beeps and the height of the tailgate.
The included instructional video shows how to easily make these settings.
Toyota Sienna 2021 specifications
All 2021 Sienna minivans use a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine and electric motors to produce 245 net horsepower from the hybrid system. This engine is mated to an electronically controlled continuously variable transmission (ECVT) with sequential shift mode.
All trim levels are offered in front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive.
The Sienna XLE I tested had very comfortable seats, plenty of storage, and a surprising amount of speed and smoothness when accelerating.
Prices cover a wide range, from front-wheel drive LE (factory MSRP of $ 34,460) to Platinum all-wheel drive ($ 50,460).
