A Minivan Mainstay Made Even Better

The Toyota Sienna became a minivan favorite for its combination of practicality, reliability and resale value. And it remains the only minivan available with all-wheel drive, a key feature for families living in the wetter and wilder parts of the country. The Sienna was recently refreshed, with a much more attractive interior, new tech features and improved driving dynamics. For 2017, the Sienna gets a more powerful standard V6, new 8-speed automatic transmission and better fuel economy.

Driving It

"The Sienna has always felt surprisingly potent and even, yes, relatively sporty to drive for a minivan. This year's fresh injection of power promises to only further improve the driving experience." Get more driving insight from our 2017 Toyota Sienna full review.

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.

Consumer Reviews

KBB.com visitor and two-time Sienna owner Joyce offered these insights: "It feels like you're driving a sedan not a van. The navigation system is a disappointment! it's elementary in design and usage. Google maps beats it hands down. Plus it's over $700 to update Toyota's Nav system. save your $$$. Love the storage in it, and the flush fold down 3rd row seats...now I don't have to find room to store them." Read more Toyota Sienna consumer reviews.

Build and Price

The 2017 Toyota Sienna starts at under $31,000 and tops out at over $50,000. But those are sticker prices, and you should expect to pay a bit less. Build and price your own 2017 Toyota Sienna to unlock its Fair Purchase Price, 5-Year Cost to Own and more.
