Auto Access Seat for U.S. market 2011 Toyota Sienna launched

Toyota has developed a great thing for all the disabled and elderly passengers. I am talking about the Auto Access Seat that the Japanese automaker has presented during the 2010 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit. The Auto Access Seat offers a great solution for passengers that are disabled, old or anyone who needs assistance getting in our out of a vehicle. The Auto Access Seat will be available exclusively with the 2011 Toyota Sienna minivan that will hit the U.S. market next month.

The Auto Access Seat allows up to four inches of slide travel and reclining of up to 24 degrees once the passenger is inside the car, while being able to rotate 90 degrees and lower itself to within 19 inches of the ground to help easier passenger transfer at the exact height required. The Auto Access Seat has a lift capacity of up to 330 lbs or 150 kilograms and features one touch operation, so nothing too complicated.

Toyota will be the first automaker in North America to offer a factory installed rotating, power ascending / descending lift up seat in one of its vehicles. Still, this feature is common in Japan, where almost all the domestic automakers offer this option for their models destined for the domestic market.

The Auto Access Seat will come with a three year / 36.000 miles factory warranty and will be available on the 2011 Toyota Sienna LE and the 2011 Toyota Sienna XLE models.
