Toyota’s Sienna minivan has duked it out with Honda’s Odyssey for years, and these days, it faces fierce competition from the Chrysler Pacifica, too. It’s still a competitive cross-shop that’s worth looking into, however, especially if you’re in a climate where its available all-wheel drive is an asset — it’s the only such minivan on the market today.
Treated to a mild facelift for 2018, the Toyota Sienna comes with the company’s familiar and well-regarded 3.5-liter V6, tuned here to deliver 296 horsepower through its eight-speed automatic. Priced from $30,750 for the base L model, most Sienna buyers will likely find themselves spending closer to $40,000 by the time they add on a few creature comforts and advanced driver assist systems for maximum safety.
Some vehicles can haul a load of passengers, others are supremely comfortable and plenty of others deliver incredible fuel efficiency.

One of the best arguments in favor of this Toyota is fuel economy. After a good ol' thrashing on a wide variety of roads, I averaged just shy of 35 miles per gallon in my Platinum-trim, all-wheel-drive tester. That's practically economy-car efficiency, plus it's right in line with this Toyota's window sticker. According to the EPA, it should return 35 mpg city, 36 mpg highway and 35 mpg combined. Front-drive models are rated at 36 mpg across the board, and all-wheel drive is available across the lineup.
Delivering that astonishing real-world efficiency is a hybrid drivetrain, which is standard in all 2021 Siennas. Yep, a traditional V6 is no longer offered. This gasoline-electric propulsion system, which is built around a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and a 1.9-kilowatt-hour nickel-metal hydride battery pack mounted underneath the front seats, delivers 245 horsepower, a good bit less than you get in either a(280 hp) or non-plug-in-hybrid (287 hp).
