2012 Toyota Sienna XLE 8-Passenger 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


I bought 2012 XLE FWD model last month. It is very spacious and more comfortable. I took test drive of equally loaded Highlander SE v6 FWD and compared it to Sienna. I felt the handling is better in Sienna. But, the pickup is good in Highlander.

In terms of mpg, i guess Sienna gives 1 miles less than Highlander. My wife liked Odyssey. But, since we read bad reviews about its Wind noise and Transmission, we decided not to buy. That too equally loaded Odyssey ELX is expensive than Sienna XLE.

But after buying Sienna, i realize that there is Wind noise & Road noise in this as well. But, it rides better and cheap with 2 year free maintenance.

Best Features

Pros: Comfort, Ride, Space Cons: Wind noise, MPG, Bluetooth Voice Recognition.

Worst Features

The captain driver seat thigh support should be enhanced in next version. The seat base is small compared to other vehicles. Bluetooth Handsfree calling setup is cumbersome. Doesn't recognize phone numbers by voice and don't have a way to enter manually. IPhone doesn't have facility to beam contacts through Bluetooth.
