2014 Toyota Sienna Review

  • This Toyota Sienna video review includes information about fuel economy, price, interior space, cargo room, available features and its minivan competitors.

    No minivan has such a wide variety of personalities as the Toyota Sienna. There's the sparse budget-friendly base trim, the Sport-tuned SE and the luxurious Limited that can cost as much as $50,000. All, however, represent one of our top recommended minivans.

    The Sienna can seat eight people in its enormous interior, though this particular one can only seat seven because of its captain's chairs that include La-Z-Boy recliner style foot rests.

    The second row of any Sienna also stands apart from the other vans by how much it slides. It moves far back to provide limolike legroom, or further forward to make third-row access easier for squeezing in longer cargo. Like every other van, the third row folds flat into the floor.

    Family-friendly features include power-operated doors, window shades, a blind-spot warning system and an entertainment system with an ultra-wide screen that can show two different things at once.

    Every Sienna comes with 266-horsepower V6 that delivers the quickest acceleration of any minivan. Front-wheel drive is standard, but the Sienna stands apart with the availability of optional all-wheel drive.

    Most Siennas are notable for their soft, pillowlike ride, and handling that doesn't make you feel as connected to the road as some other minivans do. The Sienna SE trades some of that ride comfort for sharper responses and it is arguably the best minivan to drive.

    The Sienna received four out of five stars in government crash tests. It got top scores from the IIHS.

    You won't get as much equipment for your money in the Sienna as some cheaper vans, but its overall superiority should warrant that price premium and along with the Honda Odyssey, it should be at the top of any minivan shopper's test-drive list.
