Comfort and convenience is what Toyota’s new vehicle, Auto Access Seat, is all about. Keeping in mind the comfort, Toyota has unveiled Auto Access Seat at NAIAS which is designed for the 2011 Sienna minivan. The Model caters especially to elders and those having problems to embark/disembark the vehicle. This feature is generally available in all the Japanese vehicles, but not in North America as of now. Therefore, it gives Toyota the desired edge in North America, making it first to offer a factory installed, rotating power ascending/descending lift up seats. More images and video after the jump.
The power seats, featuring one touch operation, rotate at 90 degrees; can be lowered up to 19 inches of the ground and has the lift up capacity of up to 330 lbs. Also, it allows up to four inches of slide travel and reclining of up to 24 degrees once the passenger is inside the car. The modal will be available in two versions - Sienna LE and XLE - and will be on sale in the States in February 2010. On the top of that, Toyota is also giving a three-year/36,000 mile factory warranty.
