The Toyota Sienna affords a comfortable ride and a smooth, energetic powertrain returning respectable fuel economy. Expect 20 mpg overall from the front-wheel-drive version. If you need an all-wheel-drive minivan in this model year, Sienna is your only choice. Be apprised however, those four-driven wheels sacrifice one mpg and dictate run-flat tires.
Handling falls short of agile or engaging, even with the sporty SE version, but it's stable and secure.
On the practical side, the cabin is spacious and versatile with seating for up to eight. Top-line Limited versions offer second-row lounge seating, complete with footrests. However, the driving position is somewhat cramped with sparse left foot room.
Buyers who value all-wheel drive will find Sienna a very sensible choice.
