If you're in the market for a real minivan, few vehicles can live up to your utility expectations.
The Chrysler Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan certainly fit the bill--they're also less expensive, earn top safety scores, and have more advanced tech features than the Sienna.
The Honda Odyssey is just as large as the Sienna, but neither have the Chryslers' fold-away second-row seats--and to get Bluetooth and a six-speed automatic in the Honda, you'll spend up to $40,000.
The Nissan Quest is smaller and less flexible than any other minivan on the market save the compact Mazda5, but has the best handling of the bigger vans.
Finally, before you commit to sliding side doors, try something like a Ford Flex crossover, with cavernous interior space, class-leading infotainment features, and grabby styling.
