How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.

  • Quiet and comfortable ride
  • Lot of standard and optional features
  • Toyota’s reputation for quality, reliability, and resale value


  • Plain, outdated styling
  • Fewer seating permutations than its rivals
  • Lackluster interior materials

The 2009 Toyota Sienna minivan has been on the market for five years with no major changes, and it shows. While it is still a large, comfortable, and versatile van for big families, its styling is outdated and its competitors have newer, more stylish products on the lots. Luckily for Toyota Sienna fans, an all-new version is due for 2010. The Sienna soldiers on for 2009 with very few changes.

For those who want a great, long-lasting family vehicle, the lack of cutting-edge style might not matter so much. The 2009 Toyota Sienna can seat up to eight and haul them in relative quickness, thanks to its 266-horsepower 3.5-liter V-6 mated to a five-speed automatic transmission. It isn’t exactly exciting to pilot, but it is smooth and quiet, which are attributes minivan drivers are looking for—and there’s plenty of passing power when you need it, even with a full load. The base Sienna is front-wheel drive, but the LE, XLE, and XLE Limited models are available with an all-wheel-drive system for all-weather traction.

"Minivan" may be a bad word for many mothers, but for pure practicality, they are hard to beat.  The 2009 Sienna is an excellent example of that functionality; its very spacious interior features a third-row seat that folds neatly into a well, allowing plenty of flat, low space for cargo while maintaining seating for five. If you don’t have people to haul, the second row folds flat as well and can carry an actual 4x8 sheet of plywood. Top 2009 Toyota Sienna XLE and XLE Limited models get twin captain’s chairs in the second row instead of the three-place bench seat.
