2009 Toyota Sienna vs. Its Competition

2009 Toyota Sienna

The Honda Odyssey is the closest rival to the Toyota in terms of reliability, but it outshines the Sienna in driving pleasure.

The Chrysler Town & Country is the most recently updated of the group, and its styling and features—along with its Dodge Grand Caravan sibling—include more innovative seating options.

The Hyundai Entourage has surprisingly good performance and is one of the best values in the group.

For those determined to have a roomy minivan that’s at least a little stylish, the Nissan Quest is the choice.

One thing that the Sienna has that none of these competitors offer is all-wheel drive.
