When it comes to family transportation, it's hard to beat a minivan for moving your brood and its stuff.
The Sienna's long suits include a comfortable ride and a smooth, energetic powertrain that returns respectable fuel economy: Expect 20 mpg overall from the front-wheel-drive version. Those requiring all-wheel-drive will find that the Sienna is their only choice. Having four-driven wheels sacrifices one mpg and eliminates the spare tire for run-flat tires.
Unlike the Honda Odyssey, there's no joy in driving the Sienna. Handling falls short of being agile or engaging, even with the sporty SE version. But it's ultimately secure when push comes to shove.
