Toyota Minivan Has Audio System That Will Tell Your Kids to Shut Up

Do your kids get out of control in the back seat?  Toyota’s new Sienna minivan has a new feature called “Driver Easy Speak” that may do the trick.  Flicking a switch activates a microphone that amplifies your yelling through the back seat audio system.

And before you ask, yes, the system is only one-way so your kids can’t yell back.

The feature is a new option on the 2015 Sienna.  You can also get a “pull-down conversation mirror” that gives you a panoramic look into the back seat without having to turn around.
