About the Toyota Sienna
In the world of minivans, the Toyota Sienna has been a top contender since the release of its first generation — all the way back in the late 90s. Today, the Sienna is in its third generation of production. And while this minivan has seen a lot of changes and redesigns over the years, its core features remain appealing to buyers in this segment: ample cargo space, comfortable seating, and features galore.

The third generation of production for the Toyota Sienna began in 2010, but this article will focus on the 2013 to 2018 model years exclusively.
Prior to the 2013 model year, the Sienna offered a four-cylinder engine on its base trim. For 2013, however, this engine was dropped, and instead all trim levels now come equipped with a more powerful V6. A few new standard features were also added for this year, including tri-zone climate control on the LE trim and an innovative blind-spot monitoring system on the XLE and Limited Toyota Sienna trim levels.
For 2014, the Sienna doesn't see many changes, aside from the addition of its tow prep package as a standard feature. In terms of Toyota Sienna towing capacity, drivers can expect an estimated 3,500 pounds (when properly equipped).1
For the Toyota Sienna 2015 model year, a refreshed grille and new taillights are the most notable change. However, the 2015 Sienna also sees some new interior materials and an upgraded suspension.
The Toyota Sienna 2016 has a few new features as well, including Siri Eyes-Free integration as a standard feature across all trim levels. Some trim levels now also come equipped with a GPS linking app that displays GPS navigation from a compatible smartphone to the vehicle's central display. For the Toyota Sienna 2017, a slightly more powerful V6 engine becomes standard, and an eight-speed automatic transmission is also brand new and standard across all trims. Toyota Sienna AWD is also available in most trims. The 2018 model year sees a few feature upgrades, including Toyota’s suite of driver-assist features, revised infotainment system, and a couple extra USB ports for passengers in the rear seats.
In terms of Toyota Sienna mpg, fuel economy has been pretty consistent over the years. For reference, the 2013 Sienna gets an estimated 19 mpg combined in its base four-cylinder engine, compared to an estimated 20 mpg combined for the 2018 Sienna with base six-cylinder engine.2

Reviews for Toyota Sienna
Smooth drivng minivan
Very nice riding car. Few issues that the speedometer does not light up so sometimes hard to see how fast you are going. The back lift gate does not open automatically but the 2 back doors do. Not sure why the lift gate would not have Auto open too? And the back seats do not fold all the way down do makes the hauling area not as big. Like the way the back seats back up pretty far offering room between front and back seats that is Handy to use when loading things in the car and also provides lots of leg room for back seat riders. Folding up the back seat for the access to the 3rd seat is complicated.

I Love it when a Van comes together.
I like the idea of carrying 8 people, and when I don't need the seats the 3rd row completely disappears into the floor. I normally use it like a truck. It's got more cargo capacity than my old truck (Sportrac) and will handle class III towing, although I never need more than class II. Fuel economy is around 25mpg the way I normally use it, and it's got lots of room inside.
- Fuel Economy: Better than a truck for the same work
- Cargo Space: More Cargo Space than the truck I used to drive.
- Power: More than enough for even my heaviest trailer.
- Styling: Would have preferred a Black one with a Red stripe, like the A-Team. You take what's available when you buy used.
- Weather Versatility: Came with street grade tires, probably swap them for something a bit more Truck like to match how it's being used.
I love my van!
Tbh it’s one of the most comfortable and versatile cars I’ve ever owned. (Never owned a minivan beforehand) the acceleration is good for getting in and out of traffic or when you just kinda wanna go. It rides smooth and the captains chair are super comfortable. The space for cargo is insane. It’s not the the quietest car and removing the middle seats requires a high schooler or a body builder... or someone who just needs a good work out. Interior wise beats all the other minivans in my humble opinion. It’s elegant and futuristic. Toyota took the time in designing it. The Fan settings are a little wonky. It either blows you out of the car or lightly spits cold or hot air on you. But! With climate control in the back you can easy stay cool.

- Styling: It’s not as pretty as some of the others but it’s just nicer on the inside
