A comfortable, practical minivan mainstay.
The 2014 Toyota Sienna combines available all-wheel drive and second-row captain's chairs with recliner-style footrests in one of the most comfortable and practical minivans on the market. One of only two minivans named to our list of 12 Best Family Cars for 2014, Toyota's reputation for reliability and resale value hold extra appeal in the Sienna, typically a pragmatic purchase.
From our 2014 Toyota Sienna full review: "With its 266-horsepower V6 engine at work, the 2014 Toyota Sienna minivan is surprisingly quick on its feet. Even with the optional AWD, the Sienna accelerates briskly and never feels labored or short on power. The 6-speed automatic does a good job of finding and holding the right gears and when it does shift, the transition is nearly imperceptible."
Bring the Popcorn
The second-row lounge seating is comfy, as if you're sitting in your living room recliner. The optional entertainment system makes it feel even more like family movie night, but here siblings don't have to agree: the screen is wide enough that it can show two different movies at the same time.
From the Video
"Even the most humble Sienna comes equipped with cruise control, 3-zone climate control, an auxiliary jack and plenty of cup holders." Sit back and learn more in the 2014 Toyota Sienna video above (or here).
Another Minivan Convert
KBB.com reader MoMofTwins is one of many buyers who wasn't a minivan person, but ended up loving the Sienna: "I said I would never drive a minivan but now that I am a mom to twins I don't know how I would ever live without it! The sliding doors on both sides made getting infant carriers in and out so much easier no matter how tight the parking spot - I have no idea how twin moms do without it - what if some jerk parks too close - how do you get two infant carriers into a car when you can't open a door wide enough? Also, we do a lot of road trips (about 350 miles) and I can stow the third row and then haul all of the stuff that goes along with twins easily! Double stroller whether tandem or side by side - no problem with back row seats up or down!" Read more Toyota Sienna consumer reviews.
