2021 Toyota Sienna Review

  • Hybrid powertrain provides excellent fuel economy
  • Roomy interior that's easy to get in and out of
  • Unobstructed views thanks to big windows and available surround-view camera
  • Available all-wheel drive
  • Slow acceleration, especially with a full load of people and cargo aboard
  • Brakes feel uneven, making it hard to come to a smooth stop
  • Second-row seats can't be removed
  • The Sienna has been fully redesigned for 2021
  • Standard hybrid powertrain replaces previous V6 engine
  • New interior packs improved tech and even more passenger and cargo space
  • Part of the fourth Sienna generation introduced for 2021

The Toyota Sienna is one of the most recognizable minivans on the market. This is due in no small part to the "Swagger Wagon" ads that defined the last-generation model early in its life cycle. Though the quirky marketing — and Toyota's reputation for above-average reliability — helped carry the previous Sienna for nearly a decade, a new minivan would need more than a rapping family to connect with modern buyers. Enter the redesigned 2021 Sienna.

Clearly, Toyota thinks fuel economy is one way to stand out. Gone is last year's 3.5-liter V6; in its place is a hybrid powertrain that uses a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. It's essentially the same system that Toyota uses in its RAV4 Hybrid and Highlander Hybrid, and it produces 245 horsepower. That's a far cry from the outgoing model's 296 hp. But in return you get an EPA-estimated 36 mpg in combined driving.

The rest of the 2021's Sienna's changes are more evolutionary, with improved technology features and a new center console design that's more like a SUV's. The Sienna's biggest competitors — the Honda Odyssey and Chrysler Pacifica — are both excellent thanks to their clever and usable interiors, comfortable rides and wide array of features. The Sienna comes up short in a few areas — check out our Expert Rating for the details — but overall it's a solid pick.

EdmundsEdmunds' Expert Rating
Rated for you by America’s best test team
Minivans are so similar and fundamentally good now that being the best means doing all of the little things right. The Sienna certainly covers the comfort, space, safety and technology basics well. You also get great fuel economy. But a disappointing driving experience holds the Sienna back from clinching the top minivan spot.
The Sienna's hybrid-only powertrain means it's ultra smooth to accelerate but also a lot slower than its peers, taking an extra second to reach 60 mph compared to most other vans (including the outgoing Sienna with a V6). This slower acceleration isn't evident when you're just cruising around town. But you'll notice it when you're merging onto the highway or going up grades.

The Sienna isn't the most nimble minivan in the class, but it holds its own. It drives more like a car than an SUV. The steering is weighted well to cruise for hours down the highway. It's also light and easy to turn during low-speed maneuvers.

Emergency braking performance is OK, but the bigger deal is the pedal's sometimes awkward grabby feel. That can make it hard to consistently stop smoothly.
We had no complaints after spending hours in the driver's seat. Its wide range of adjustability gets much of the credit, though this is a common feature in the class. Optional ottoman-style footrests in the second row plus a huge range of fore-aft sliding create a business-class-like feel and give the Sienna an edge in second-row comfort. Optional four-zone climate control is one more zone than competitors have (three-zone is standard) and is effective at keeping the cabin cozy, hot or cold.

Noise is an area of concern. So long as the engine isn't working hard, the cabin is quiet, even serene. When you ask for power, the whole cabin will know. The engine and CVT drone considerably. Optional in-car voice projection, which sends front passenger voices through the rear speakers and headsets, helps as a work-around. You can save the shouting for when you really need it.
The Sienna pulls ahead of the pack in this area. It sits at a height that makes it easy to slide in and out of. The driving position is excellent and versatile. We're fans of the large central touchscreen with two exceptions: the glare that it throws off in midday sun and some far-side buttons that feel a bit out of reach. All other primary controls are placed logically and function as expected.

There's naturally good visibility out of the cabin. An optional surround-view camera system can provide a see-through view of the Sienna to make things even easier. There's also a digital rearview mirror that solves the issue of seeing past headrests or high-piled cargo in the back. The sliding doors and rear hatch have a no-touch open and closing feature. Just swipe your foot to operate them.
The infotainment system uses a combination of a quick-responding touchscreen and physical buttons. The redundancy lets you choose your preference for menu access. The native navigation is accurate and easy to read, and the system's voice commands respond well to natural language. Apple CarPlay or Android Auto smartphone integration is also standard.

Interior tech features worth mentioning include a handy cabin intercom system, Wi-Fi connectivity and a generous number of USB ports for all three rows. We found the advanced driving aids to be excellent too. Adaptive cruise control is tuned well to avoid the heavy and sudden brake application we see from some other brands.
All minivans are masters of utility, and the Sienna is no exception. There's a deep well for cargo storage behind the third row that also has hooks on the seatback. The third row can be manually folded and stows almost flat into the floor, and the second-row seats slide far forward, offering a great cargo solution. One big drawback is the second-row seats aren't removable as they are in other minivans, which greatly reduces the maximum cargo capacity.

Storage for personal items is equally good. There are 16 cupholders, multi-level door pockets, and a large shelf between the front passengers that is perfect for a handbag. For car seats, the attachment points are extremely easy to access. There are four in the seven-passenger Sienna and five in the eight-passenger. Buckles are easy for booster-age kids to use.
Chrysler gave us the first plug-in minivan. If you ran out of EV charge, its hybrid mode still returned an EPA-estimated 30 mpg. That was mind-blowing minivan fuel economy at the time. But the new hybrid Sienna is rated by the EPA at 36 mpg combined (36 city/36 highway). And as we discovered, it's capable of much more.

After nearly 500 miles with a front-wheel-drive Sienna, we vastly outperformed the EPA estimates. We averaged 42.7 mpg overall, including 44.8 mpg on our mixed-driving evaluation route of just over 115 miles. We can't wait to see if the all-wheel-drive version performs as well. Wow.
Our Sienna test vehicle wasn't a final production unit, but it felt really well built and was free of squeaks and rattles. Surfaces that are frequently touched — steering wheel, armrests, etc. — are soft-touch and well padded. All these aspects add to the general upscale sense you get from this interior.

Though a base Sienna starts a bit higher than other base models, it's comparably priced when its peers are equipped with features to match. The top trim is a tad more expensive but offers value-added features such as all-wheel drive that some competitors don't. It has a strong warranty for hybrid components and roadside assistance and is the only one to offer two years of free scheduled maintenance.
For those who prioritize how a car drives, the Sienna's brakes may be a deal-breaker. Sometimes they grab too much, sometimes too little, and sometimes they work fine. This factor carries a lot of weight for us and is an unfortunate blemish on an otherwise great minivan.

That aside, the Sienna gets a lot of the fundamentals right and offers some bonus elements too. Its exterior styling certainly shows more personality than any other minivan. And some of its more novel interior features include a built-in vacuum, a refrigerator that gets legitimately cold for drinks and snacks, and second-row seats that recline with footrests like you're in an airline business class. Oh, and we've seen this hybrid get well over 40 mpg. That's a wild card if we've ever seen one.

Which Sienna does Edmunds recommend?

The base LE trim comes relatively well equipped, but we suggest stepping up a tier to the XLE trim. It adds more features and opens up the options list to include things that aren't available on the LE.

Toyota Sienna models

The 2021 Toyota Sienna is available in five trim levels: LE, XLE, XSE, Limited and Platinum. Each comes with a hybrid powertrain that uses a four-cylinder engine. Total system output is 245 horsepower. Front-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive is available on all trims. Depending on the trim, the Sienna is available with either an eight-passenger (second-row bench seat) or a seven-passenger (second-row captain's chairs) configuration.

LE
Standard features for this base trim include:

  • LED headlights
  • Power-sliding side doors
  • Three-zone automatic climate control
  • Second-row sunshades
  • Power-adjustable driver's seat
  • Seven USB ports
  • 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration
  • Six-speaker audio system

An optional LE Plus package adds:

  • Auto-dimming rearview mirror
  • Black roof rails
  • Sunroof
  • Eight-speaker audio system
  • Wireless charging pad

Every Sienna also comes with these advanced driver aids:

  • Forward collision mitigation (warns you of an impending collision and applies the brakes in certain scenarios)
  • Lane departure warning with steering assist (alerts you if the vehicle begins to drift out of its lane and steers the Sienna back into its lane if it begins to drift over the lane marker)
  • Adaptive cruise control (adjusts speed to maintain a constant distance between the vehicle and the car in front)
  • Automatic high beams
  • Blind-spot monitor (alerts you if a vehicle in the next lane over is in your blind spot)

XLE
Features builds on the LE with:

  • Keyless entry with push-button start
  • Four-zone automatic climate control
  • Power-adjustable passenger seat
  • Sunroof
  • Eight-speaker audio system
  • Auto-dimming rearview mirror

An optional XLE Plus package adds:

  • Black roof rails
  • Wireless charging
  • 12-speaker JBL audio system
  • Integrated navigation system

XSE
Stepping up to the XSE gives the Sienna a sporty appearance with black exterior trim, a mesh grille and exclusive seat trim. It's equipped like the XLE but comes standard with the navigation system. An optional XSE Plus package adds:

  • Black roof rails
  • Wireless charging
  • 12-speaker JBL audio system

Limited
The Limited model ditches the XSE's sporty touches and instead builds on the XLE with features such as:

  • Power-folding exterior mirrors
  • Chrome roof rails
  • Wireless charging pad
  • Leather seating
  • Integrated vacuum
  • Third-row sunshades
  • Available extendable footrests for second-row captain's chairs
  • Standard 12-speaker JBL audio system

Platinum
The top-of-the-line Platinum trim includes everything on the Limited, plus:

  • Bi-LED headlights
  • Rain-sensing windshield wipers
  • 360-degree camera (gives you a top-down view of the Sienna and its surroundings for tight parking situations)
  • Premium leather seating
  • Integrated refrigerator
  • Available extendable footrests for second-row captain's chairs
  • Heated steering wheel
  • Heated second-row seats

Optional for every trim except the LE is an Entertainment package that includes a rear-seat entertainment system with a rear overhead display and wireless headphones. A digital rearview mirror (allows you to see out the back even with a fully loaded cargo area) is optional for the Limited and Platinum.

5/5 stars, Maybe my friends won't make fun of my new mom van
LWalkerinclt,
XLE 8-Passenger 4dr Minivan (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
I was tired of my friends making fun of me driving my old Town and Country so I went to the Toyota dealership to purchase a 2020 Highlander Hybrid. After a test drive I knew it wouldn't work for my family because I have 3 kids and we do carpool, sleepovers and long road trips. The Highlander is just too small if you have more than 2 kids! I was about to walk away when my eye snagged on this BEAUTIFUL 2021 Sienna! When I found out it was a hybrid, I knew immediately that I would purchase! First, the ride is very smooth and quiet. I have an XLE and it is full of all the bells and whistles that I'm used to in my T&C. The only thing that's missing is my DVD player. The technology in this vehicle is amazing and I learn something new every day. So far I've had the van for a week and a half and I'm getting 35 mpg, which is much better than I expected. I can even drive in electric mode only, but it cuts off if you drive more than 25 mph (so I only use this as I'm cruising in the neighborhood). I also like that I have a removable seat on the 2nd row, so if I'm carrying an extra (small size) kid, I have an 8 passenger van. It was easy to remove so right now I have the captains chair mode, which makes it easier for the kids to get to the 3rd row. I agree with the Edmunds review. The braking on this van is weird and is still a learning process for me. But I love the way this van looks (honestly it looks like a cross between a Highlander and a Camry from the rear) and I get a lot of head turns. There aren't too many of these on the road, yet, so it's cool to be one of the first! Again, with the technology, the radar cruise control is amazing. Once you set it, the van basically drives itself. It steers you around curves and automatically changes the speed depending on the traffic conditions. Overall, I'm very satisfied with my purchase as I normally only buy used vehicles. I'm hoping this van lasts at least 10 years!
3/5 stars, Good and the bad, nothing in between
Wralph,
XSE 7-Passenger 4dr Minivan (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
I got my XSE- premium, FWD in early December, this is my fourth Sienna lease. I have three kids, do a lot of surface street driving in Michigan, most trips are within 5 miles from my house. There are also semiannual vacations in Florida that we drive all the way in our minivan. The Good: Highly improved milage. I’m getting around 26MPG driving around town in eco mode (I used to get around 15MPGs in 2017, 2015 and 2013 models. Trip to Miami and back, 33.7 MPGs. Much improved sounds system Cursing range: car has 18-gallon tank, so no need for frequent refueling stops. Navigation is highly improved over my 2017 model. Enough USB ports for entire family + wireless charger. Steering assist and adaptive cruise control, add extra safety value, especially when trying to eat and drive. There were parts of my trip to Miami when this feature did not work because of the poor contrast between road and line marker and construction related line shifts. Metallic paint is a vast improvement over old 70s-bathroom colors they used to have. The Bad: Fake leather seats, two out of three kids complained about their rears being sweaty. The third one was in a booster seat. Oddly, front seats did not have the seam problem. Very uncomfortable middle seat in a third row versus what previous models used to have. Trunk well is smaller than in previous models, that means third row had bunch of items piled up, cramping rear occupants aka kids. Rear Entertainment System, comes with the screen only, no BR player vs to 2017 model. Very annoying, as getting your own, add one more item into the car and there is no spot for it, other than under feet or under center console. The bridge limits usable area underneath it, as front seats partially block access to it from a side. No seat memory, I’m sure it’s a marketing ploy to sell Platinum and Limited… most cheaper sedans have it. Common concerns: I read a lot of concerns about lack of power, bad transmission etc. It’s a minivan not a race car, I did not feel like the car drives differently than previous models. Final thoughts: Its nice-looking minivan does its job, either very well or poorly. Great for daily kid transportation, somewhat uncomfortable during long trips.
5/5 stars, By far a better FUV
Polar bear,
LE 8-Passenger 4dr Minivan AWD (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Family Utility Vehicle. I have had a 2011 Sienna before buying this new hybrid FUV, and it is A LOT better by far, except when accelerating, but if you drive normally this van has more than enough and ample power. With all new cars i have had, the first hundreds kilometers/miles I rarely drive over 90 kmh/56mph. And had an impressive 6.1L/100km=46 mpg continuons. I have chosen the LE AWD because having a spare tire included is very important to me, it also ride smoother and quieter than previous gen. Having heated front seats and steering wheel is a big plus up north, and I just love the bridge console.
3/5 stars, There’s good news and not so good news
Jspear1957,
XLE 7-Passenger 4dr Minivan (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
The style, the tech and the awesome fuel economy make this a standout. I would have bought one were it not for two issues. First, you can’t take the middle row seats out. They fold into a 20 inch wide blob as high as the front seats. Floor space is limited to 76”, not the typical 96”. This was a killer for me BUT, the front seat was woefully uncomfortable, compared with my 19 Odyssey. It was like sitting on a bench. I expect it will sell but am sticking with our Idyssey for now. Really disappointed.

2021 Toyota Sienna video

[MUSIC PLAYING] MARK TAKASHASHI: Minivans-- whether you love them or hate them, there's no denying that they're some of the best vehicles for transporting the family and all of their stuff. One of the latest minivans to get a full redesign is that, over my shoulder, the all-new 2021 Toyota Sienna. And it's joined today by the Honda Odyssey, which also gets some updates for 2021. We're going to get into what's cool, what's new, and what needs improvement over the course of this video. I'll be talking about the high level stuff, but I'm probably not the best reviewer for the real world usability stuff, which is why we're bringing in Mike, our vehicle testing operations manager and parent of two. As always, hit the Subscribe button below to see all of our latest videos. Head on over to edmunds.com for all your car shopping needs, and get a cash offer for your vehicle by going to edmonds.com/sellmycar. Now that we have these Minivans together, let's see how they stack up at least on paper. The 2021 Sienna starts right around $35,000 and tops out at $51,000 for this Platinum trim. Meanwhile, the Honda starts right around $33,000 and tops out with this Elite trim right around $49,000. Advantage? Honda. The previous Sienna's 296-horsepower V6 has been replaced by a 2.5 liter, four-cylinder hybrid system with a combined output of 245 horsepower. That power reduction is a bit of a let down, but it's not nearly as concerning as the decision to go with a continuously variable transmission. Those CVTs have a tendency to dull the engine's responsiveness, making the vehicle feel weak and slow. The Odyssey keeps its 280-horsepower 3.5 liter V6, as well as it's traditional 10-speed automatic transmission. Advantage? Honda. The Toyota's hybrid system reaps huge benefits at the gas pump though with an EPA estimated 36 miles per gallon combined. On our highway-heavy evaluation loop, the Odyssey met its estimate, while the Sienna exceeded expectations with 44.8 mpg. That's a huge advantage over the Odyssey's 22 mpg combined estimate, and I think that deserves two stars. The Odyssey has a cargo capacity that ranges from 32.8 to 144.9 cubic feet, compared to the Sienna's 33.5 to 101 cubic feet, which is so small. Because unlike the Honda, you can't remove the second row. Advantage? Honda. [MUSIC PLAYING] In less objective comparisons, let's talk about styling. It's not easy dressing up a big box on wheels, so I'll try to go easy. In design school, I was taught to always start a critique by saying something nice first. So here it goes. I like the Sienna's new profile more than his predecessor mainly because there's more of a hood here that helped it look a little less like a minivan from the front. Unfortunately, the Sienna has two of my least favorite Toyota styling cues. It may look less like a minivan up front, but it looks like a Camry or Avalon with this ridiculously sized grill. And then, oh, my god, there's this character that starts here and goes over the back just like the Supra and Highlander. And to me, it's really ungainly. It looks almost like someone's wearing two Fanny packs at the same time. Seriously, they could have done a little better with the styling. The Odyssey gets a styling refresh for 2021, and it's most noticeable upfront front the grill. It's much cleaner and simpler than last year, which had kind of a big chunky chrome thing going on. Further down the side, however, we have these kind of surface treatment that do their best to break up the monotony. But to me, it sort of reminds me of a molded fiberglass hot tub. Returning is this chrome strip here that dips down with the window, as well as the floating roof. I do like how both minivans hide the door rail right here in the glass. Overall, I think the Honda is easier on the eyes. That said, the Chrysler Pacifica gets a major refresh too, and I think it looks the best of the three with a more aggressive SUV-like appearance. Well, that's the end of my usefulness on this video. So it's time to throw it on over to Mike Schmidt. MIKE SCHMIDT: [INHALE] Suburbia. The roofers. The barking dogs. My rambunctious kids. I got roped into this video today because, whether I want to admit it or not, I live a minivan kind of life. My kids are still in boosters. I like doing projects on the weekends, and our family loves taking long road trips. With the space of these minivans, you can't beat them. To pick a winner between the Odyssey and the Sienna, first we're going to look at what they do the same. Then we're going to look at what they do differently. Then we're going to get my kids' take on it. At this point in minivan evolution, the manufacturers have figured out all the basics. The Sienna and the Odyssey are Prime examples of that. I'll show you starting with the backs of the cars. Both of them have hands-free opening for the rear hatch. Now personally, it doesn't work for me. I think it's unnecessary. I don't feel like dancing a jig to open the rear hatch. Each van has a deep storage well behind the third row seat. When you're not using it, you can fold those seats down into it. Now, the real disappointment here-- both the top trim Odyssey and the top trim Sienna have manual folding seats. I want that automated life. It's worth mentioning that the Chrysler Pacifica has push button controls to lower the seat. Access to the third row is snug whether you're a capital or lower case person. Each van has its own way of granting access to this kid zone, and I'll get back to that a little bit later. Ah, the second row. Both of these vans offer optional bench seats so that you can fit three across. In the case of this Sienna, we have just the two captain's chairs. Now we're in the front row where the magic happens. Both the Odyssey and the Sienna have very comfortable driver's seats. I've spent an hour or two straight in each one of them, and I have no complaints. I can hook up my phone and use Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. Or I can unplug and use the native apps. But each one of the vans does it just a little bit differently, and I'll talk about that more later. CabinTalk is Honda's name for a feature that projects the front passenger's voice to the rear passengers by using either the speakers or the headsets. Toyota has a similar feature called Driver Easy Speak. But because our test van isn't equipped with that, we're here in the Odyssey. This feature is helpful because cabins get loud with road noise, screaming kids. Being able to say things like, kids, we're almost there, allows me to save my dad voice for when I really need it. Hey, stop hitting your brother. Finally, these vans have a lot of extras. Driver aides like lane keeping assist, and adaptive cruise control, easy access to latch anchors for child seats, seat belts-- kids can easily buckle themselves-- big storage areas near the driver, hooks for bags, 12-volt outlets, USB ports, cup holders galore, and even vacuums. With all of the similarities between the Odyssey and the Sienna, it may seem like this test is a draw. When actually it's the fine tuning of the little features that really enhance the experience and will ultimately decide our winner. Let's look at the differences in both vans, but this time we'll start from the front and work our way back. The use of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto make native apps feel obsolete. If you prefer not to plug-in your phone, know that in the Odyssey the Garmin-based navigation system is pretty awkward. The Sienna is much better. Both vans have the classic fold down bubble mirror for monitoring passengers in the back, but the Odyssey takes it up a notch. Honda calls it CabinWatch, and it's essentially a camera version of the bubble mirror that allows me to keep tabs on any mutinous behavior in the backseat. And it works daytime and nighttime. Both vans also use rear view cameras to give you a better idea of what's going on outside. Here, the Sienna really steps it up. The Sienna offers a camera that gives a 360-degree view around the car. Toyota calls it Bird's Eye View with Perimeter Scan. At the press of a button, you can get extra piece of mind. Toyota's second row slides front to back. You just flip the switch, and push on back. Now in the case of this Sienna, it has the optional ottomans. You get a little foot rest. Now in my case, it's too short for me anyway, even if I recline it. But the kids will like it. You want to see something really cool? The Sienna has an optional fridge. Oh. Honda's seats slide side to side. With just a little bit of umph, you can move them to the center, or you can slide them off to the side if you want to carry long cargo or if the kids are just getting on each other's nerves. So how did these vans drive? When it comes to passing and merging, you're going to find you have plenty of power regardless which van you're in. The Odyssey is going to give you more of a traditional driving experience. The Sienna is going to take a little bit more getting used to. The reason is because it's CVT and engine combination can be really loud when the engine's under strain. That could be when you're going up a hill, and it could be when you're trying to speed up onto the freeway. Also, the brakes-- they take a little getting used to. I found that they can either be too grabby at times or not as grabby as I'd want them to be. Minivans are so similar these days that in order to be the best, you have to do all the little things right. It's been a long time since these two vans have been so evenly matched. We'll take the Sienna first. It's going to win the fuel economy battle no matter what. But I found that it's floaty ride, non-removable second row, and it's inconsistent driveability was really a put off. And to be honest, that was enough. Then there's the Odyssey. Its navigation system is outdated, but it does all the other things right. It makes it easy to drive and "easy" is the key word here. Because as you can tell by the mustache, I'm a dad. I have enough other things to deal with. Easy is what I want. Based on that, the Odyssey wins for me. [MUSIC PLAYING] SPEAKER 1: We're in the Honda Odyssey. SPEAKER 2: I like it because it has a TV. SPEAKER 1: I like the arm rests, the cool automatic door. SPEAKER 2: I don't really like that there's not TVs on the back of the chair. SPEAKER 1: We both up to share one TV. SPEAKER 2: Yeah. SPEAKER 1: And there-- and there's only one game. There's hardly any games on the-- SPEAKER 2: And we can't like-- SPEAKER 1: --TV. SPEAKER 2: --play play against each other. TOGETHER: We're in the Toyota Sienna. SPEAKER 2: I like it because you can control the air conditioning back here, and it has a fridge. But I don't like it because it has skinnier arm rests. SPEAKER 1: I do not like it because it does not have any TVs. SPEAKER 2: I don't like it because you can't like, you can't just click the button right up here to like get the door to close. MIKE SCHMIDT: So which one do you like better? SPEAKER 1: Hmm, I think the Odyssey. MIKE SCHMIDT: Why? SPEAKER 1: Because of the TV.

Toyota Sienna vs. the competition

Toyota Sienna vs. Honda Odyssey

The Odyssey has been our top-rated minivan since the latest generation debuted in 2018. It's spacious and comfortable and has plenty of clever storage spots. While we like the powerful V6, its fuel economy rating falls far short of the hybrid-only Sienna's. And, unlike the Toyota, the Odyssey is not available with all-wheel drive. Read Edmunds' long-term road test of the Honda Odyssey.

Toyota Sienna vs. Chrysler Pacifica

The Pacifica gets a refresh for 2021 with updated styling, improved tech and even more safety features. We like the premium-looking interior and available plug-in hybrid model, though the latter is unavailable with all-wheel drive. And the interior, while practical, isn't quite as comfortable as the Toyota's. Read Edmunds' long-term road test of the Chrysler Pacifica.

Toyota Sienna vs. Toyota Highlander

The Toyota Highlander was redesigned last year and carries over into 2021 relatively unchanged. It doesn't offer the same passenger or cargo space as the Sienna, but it may be more appealing for those who want a practical vehicle but can't quite settle on a minivan. It's available with a strong V6 or hybrid powertrain, though the latter can't quite match the Sienna's fuel economy.

Should I lease or buy a 2021 Toyota Sienna?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
