The Toyota Sienna soldiers on with minimal changes for 2019 and 2020 while we wait for a complete redesign expected for the 2021 model year. While we wait for the next gen model, the Sienna is up against tough competition from the inexpensive Grand Caravan (which may be ancient, but it’s also crazy cheap), the […]
Toyota’s Corolla hasn’t always come as a hatch in America but Toyota now seems dedicated to the more practical form of their compact vehicle. The new Corolla hatch is our first preview of what the upcoming 2020 Corolla sedan will be when it launches later this year.
