Toyota Sienna Road Test

When it comes to family transportation, it's hard to beat a minivan for moving your brood and its stuff. And among minivans, the Sienna is a rational choice.

Its long list of strong suits include a comfortable ride and an energetic powertrain that returns respectable fuel economy: The front-wheel-drive version we tested returned 21 mpg. All-wheel-drive is available, which gives extra winter traction and peace of mind, but sacrifices about one mpg and eliminates the spare tire for run-flat tires.

However, there's no particular 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. Ride comfort, on the other hand, is quite accomplished, absorbing pavement flaws nicely while also keeping the cabin quiet. Plenty of reserve power is underfoot for a quick highway merge or a hill climb. But the transmission isn't exactly a model of smoothness.

Best Version to Get
We'd go with an XLE for its easy-to-clean leather interior and standard blind spot warning with rear cross traffic warning.
