Toyota adds microphone to 2015 Sienna van for yelling at kids

Toyota adds a microphone to its Sienna van so kids can't claim they didn't hear you say stop (NYSE:TM)

Any parent who has gone on a long road trip with a group of kids knows that things can get loud very quickly. That often means you end up screaming at kids to stop what they are doing while cruising down the road. While that can be annoying in a car, in a larger vehicle like a minivan being heard over a ruckus by people all the way in the back seat can be difficult.

Toyota is addressing that issue with the addition of a microphone to its 2015 Sienna minivan. The mic feature is called Driver Easy Speak and it allows the driver to be heard by all the passengers in the car without having to yell.

 

There are no microphones in the back to allow those passengers to speak to the driver. Considering it can be hard to hear what young kids are trying to say when they are in the back of a large vehicle, a 2-way intercom would have been nice. The new Sienna will hit dealerships this fall.
