Toyota Sienna
Toyota Sienna 2017 minivan Trim Shown: 2017 XLE minivan FWD Automatic

As minivans go, the Sienna is a sensible choice, but it isn't very engaging to drive. The Sienna rides very comfortably and is quiet inside, but handling is lackluster. The 3.5-liter V6 is lively and returned a respectable 21 mpg overall in our tests with the new for 2017 eight-speed automatic. The all-wheel-drive version--the only such minivan on the market--sacrifices 1 or 2 mpg. An eighth seat cleverly stores in the back when it isn't installed in place. The 2017 update also brought a standard backup camera, an additional LATCH attachment, and a front-passenger seat-cushion airbag. Reliability has been above average. That and the availability of all-wheel drive are the Sienna's biggest advantages over the Honda Odyssey.

2015 Redesign Year
Toyota Sienna 2016 Trim Shown: 2016 Limited/Limited Premium/XLE

Delivering a comfortable ride and a smooth, energetic powertrain returning respectable fuel economy, the Sienna is also the only minivan offering of this model year with an all-wheel drive option. It's available on all trims, except L and SE. Getting all-wheel-drive limits seating to seven, so you won't find an AWD eight-passenger Sienna. Still though, the cabin is spacious and versatile. However, the driving position is somewhat cramped, with sparse left foot room. Top-line Limited versions offer second-row lounge seating, complete with footrests. The 2015 freshening brought reduced road noise, but the ride is slightly less cushy. Soft-touch materials improved the perceived interior quality. Electronic connectivity is also updated, with Toyota's Entune touchscreen infotainment system offered as standard equipment. We'd go with an XLE for its easy-to-clean leather interior and standard blind spot monitoring with cross-traffic alert.

2011 Redesign Year
Toyota Sienna 2014 Trim Shown: 2014 Passenger

More rakish styling led Toyota to advertise their third-generation Sienna minivan as the 'Swagger Wagon,' in an effort to win buyers who may be wary of a minivan's dowdy image. Bravado aside, this redesign continues to deliver functional family transportation, but some of the previous plushness disappeared. All three rows have plenty of room, with seating for up to eight. Optional second-row lounge chairs even have built-in footrests, but they look more comfortable than they really are. Interior quality and noise isolation took a step back, but the composed ride and refined powertrain remains. Fuel economy from the lively 3.5-liter V6 is a relatively good 20 mpg. Handling is responsive and secure. This version of the Sienna is the only minivan among its competitors to offer all-wheel-drive, at a sacrifice of one mpg. Model year 2015 updates included simplified controls and an updated infotainment system. Advanced safety gear, like forward-collision warning, is optional on high-end trims.

2004 Redesign Year
Toyota Sienna 2009 Trim Shown: 2009 Passenger Van

Consider the second-generation Toyota Sienna to be the Lexus of minivans. Its 2004 redesign made the Sienna considerably larger than earlier versions, putting it on par size-wise with the competition. Composed and quiet, the Sienna is more refined than rival minivans. Cabin ambiance matches that of some luxury sedans. Handling is sound and secure but not very agile. All-wheel-drive was an exclusive option; earlier versions had run-flat tires that were prone to fast wear. Power originally came from a refined 3.3-liter V6, while 2007 brought a 3.5-liter V6 with better acceleration and the same 19 mpg overall. AWD subtracts one mpg overall. Front- and middle-row seats are very comfortable; all three rows are easy to access. Stability control was optional on early models, and standard on all-wheel-drive versions. This vital safety feature became standard on all Siennas for 2008.

Toyota Sienna 2003 Trim Shown: 2003 Passenger Van

A replacement for the mid-engine Previa minivan, the more traditionally styled Sienna was introduced for the 1998 model year. Based on the Camry platform, the Sienna has a well-mannered suspension and refined V6 powertrain. In our tests, the Sienna rode quietly and handled competently. The V6 accelerates eagerly, and the transmission shifts smoothly. The front- and middle-row seats are quite comfortable; the rearmost seat is well padded but hard to access. The Sienna offers both left- and right-side sliding doors. Cargo space is tighter than in some competitors, such as the Dodge Grand Caravan. The Sienna is one of our highest-rated minivans.
