Armed with a smooth and powerful V6 engine, as well as improved braking, this version of the Sienna was our top-rated minivan of its time. Because it was also the only one available with all-wheel drive, we tested both front- and AWD models. Our readers reported the AWD's run-flat tires wore quickly and were expensive to replace. A slightly stiffer ride and a loss of one mpg overall are other sacrifices for AWD.

"Very poor traction from front-wheel drive. Even in rain traction is lacking, and very poor in snow."

Anonymous, TN (2010 Toyota Sienna)

"Handling with OE "T" rated tires was sloppy. Changing to America's Tire Co. Yokohama YK580 tires "H" rated gave good turn-in, feel, and cornering stability without sacrificing ride quality or quietness."

EUGENE T., CA (2010 Toyota Sienna)

"Handling is average to above average, but it is, after all, a minivan."

How it looks inside and out

What Owners Say

"This 2010 style of car has smother lines and have less boxy look, 2011 moved to box car look."

KERRY L., SC (2010 Toyota Sienna)

"My older teen kids HATE mini-vans since they are so UN-COOL! They have nicknamed it Mom's Swagger-Wagon:) However, we are a very tall family with all members being 5'10 to 6'6" tall. When we are riding together as a family, there is nothing else that gives the comfort and space that a mini-van does. So, it's a love-hate relationship for them. I, on the other hand, do not define myself by the car I drive. I LOVE my Swagger-Wagon:)"
