Modellista’s Toyota Sienta exploring its sporty, adventurous and premium sides
The new third-generation Toyota Sienta has just been unveiled in Japan, but factory tuner Modellista has already announced a number of styling and accessory upgrades for the compact minivan. Body kits make the Sienta look sportier and more premium, while additional accessories enhance its practicality.
The tuner offers a trio of distinct packages for the Sienta, called Bright Tech Elegance, Tech Gear and Garnish Style. The sportiest of the three is the Sienta Bright Tech Elegance (painted white in press photos) thanks to aerodynamic bumper extensions with integrated dummy air intakes, rear spoiler and optional dual exhaust pipes.

The Sienta Urban Tech Gear (painted red in press photos) looks a bit more adventurous, mainly due to the extensions in the plastic wheel arch trim, with aluminum-style accents to match the trim’s add-ons. grill and rear skid plate.
Last but not least, the Sienta Garnish Style (painted black in press photos) is the most premium-looking option in the Modellista catalogue, with bright chrome accents on the hood, doors, hoods, the mirrors, the door handles and the tailgate. All three body kits are combined with a new set of 15-inch alloy wheels, which however do not represent an increase in diameter over the original Sienta.
The cost of upgrades is ¥148,500 ($1,086) for Bright Tech Elegance (unpainted), a slightly cheaper ¥108,900 ($796) for Urban Tech Gear, and the exact same ¥108,900 ($796) for Garnish Style. A set of Modellista alloy wheels will set you back another ¥70,400 ($518).
In addition to visual delights, Modellista also offers a number of accessories for the interior of the Toyota Sienta, enhancing style and practicality. Among them, we find a self-inflating air mattress to sleep inside the Sienta, a wood fiber cover for the cargo area, a protective net for the cabin when the rear door is opened, a stylish cushion, sun visors and improved LED lights for interior lights. The tuner also offers grab handles that can be mounted on the back of the seat for those with reduced mobility.
The Toyota Sienta shares the TNGA-B underpinnings with the Yaris supermini, Aqua hatchback and Yaris Cross urban SUV, along with the 1.5-litre engine in both ICE and hybrid versions. The compact minivan features a longer, taller body with sliding doors and a three-row cab layout that makes it perfect for family buyers.
