Expert Quotes:

2012 Toyota Sienna: 19/24 mpg (four-cylinder); 18/25 mpg (six-cylinder, FWD); 17/23 mpg (V-6 AWD)
EPA





Toyota stands alone in offering a four-cylinder engine in its Sienna minivan, and it's not an unreasonable choice, despite its gas-mileage numbers and the van's 4,500 pounds of curb weight.

For those on the budget, the base Sienna with its 2.7-liter four-cylinder and six-speed automatic won't feel like a penalty box. As we've observed under the Performance section, the four-cylinder Sienna's admittedly slower, but not sluggish--and it's priced well below V-6 versions. Its EPA rating of 19/24 mpg, however, is bracketed by the V-6, front-drive Sienna's 18/25-mpg rating, which means you may get slightly better mileage with the four-cylinder in mixed driving, while interstate cruisers will do better with the V-6. With either, the Sienna sits at the top of minivan fuel economy rankings, alongside the most expensive versions of the Honda Odyssey.

Opt for all-wheel drive, and the Sienna's mileage ratings fall to 17/23 mpg.

Conclusion

The four-cylinder isn't as clearly frugal as we'd hoped, but the Sienna still earns some of the best minivan gas-mileage ratings.

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.
