Most helpful consumer reviews
XLE Premium 7-Passenger 4dr Minivan AWD (3.5L 6cyl 8A)
I like my AWD but it is somewhat of inconvenience since it does not have spare tire and location to mount it. i did switch to normal tire and have to put a spare tire in the back. other than that i give this vehicle a 5 stars. Mileage is not great in city but very good in high way.
Edmunds Summary Review of the 2018 Toyota Sienna XLE Premium 7-Passenger Minivan
Pros & Cons
- Refined ride quality imparts comfort and confidence
- V6 provides class-leading acceleration
- Still the only minivan to offer all-wheel drive
- Second-row seats are bulky, heavy and awkward to remove
- Offers fewer features than some newer competitors
Which Sienna does Edmunds recommend?
Although a midgrade model, the Sienna LE has most of the minivan essentials (tri-zone climate control, power driver seat and easy-clean fabric upholstery) and optional all-wheel drive. But unless you absolutely need wet-weather capability, go for the SE. It has worthwhile upgrades, such as sportier styling, leather upholstery, a power liftgate and firmer suspension tuning. The latter makes the SE the best-handling Sienna. There is a small trade-off in ride quality, but we prefer the SE's more in-control feel.
Full Edmunds Review: 2018 Toyota Sienna Minivan
A strong V6 makes the Sienna the quickest minivan on the market. The engine isn't terribly responsive in normal driving, and ample body roll reveals itself on curvy roads, but most minivan drivers should find it tolerable.
The seats are initially comfortable and supportive, but long stints reveal pressure points. The ride is serene, though considerable levels of road and wind noise disrupt an otherwise relaxed experience. The climate controls work well to keep the entire cabin at a pleasant temperature.
The Sienna offers great visibility and, unsurprisingly for a minivan, excellent points of entry and exit for all seats. There's a surprising lack of headroom in the second and third rows due to the tapered roofline, but the most egregious oversight has to be the Sienna's poorly arranged controls.
The Sienna's cargo capacity behind the third row is expansive. The power-folding seat controls are located on a panel just below the top of the hatch; it's easy to knock your forehead against it while loading cargo. The front door pockets are low and hard to reach.
The user interface is intuitive, although the touchscreen interface is unappealing. Upgrades such as more USB ports and standard driver safety features for 2018 are welcome.
