The Toyota Sienna delivers 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 all-wheel-drive in this model year Sienna is the only choice. However, those four-driven wheels sacrifice one mpg and dictate run-flat tires.
Handling falls short of being agile or engaging, even with the sporty SE version. But it's ultimately secure.
On the practical side, the cabin is spacious and versatile, with available seating for 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.
