Toyota Mobility Options in the 2017 Toyota Sienna
Through the Toyota Mobility program, the auto manufacturer makes sure handicap passengers have everything they need to comfortably enter, exit and ride in their vehicles. The 2017 Toyota Sienna, Toyota’s flagship minivan, is the perfect solution for those looking for a handicap accessible vehicle due to its extensive compatibility options by providing factory installed or adaptive equipment to suit each passenger’s needs.
Toyota Auto Access Seat
One of the biggest innovations from Toyota Mobility is the new Auto Access Seat. This second-row seat acts and looks as a regular Sienna passenger seat, but it can be turned and lowered easily for easy in-and-out access for handicap passengers. The 2017 Toyota Sienna can also be fitted with a side entry ramp for wheelchairs and power chairs, as well as a rear entry ramp for another alternative for easy access. The Sienna can also be altered with wheelchair conversions so people can easily get into driving position.
Many Toyota vehicles can also be fitted with a hitch for a heavy power chair or scooter. However, since these can be so heavy, Toyota offers hitch load guidelines on their Toyota Mobility website for all consumers to see.
