Expert Quotes:

“we find the basic shape … appealing”

“smartly styled”
Kelley Blue Book

“spacious cabin is handsomely fitted”

When it comes to styling, minivans can’t get a break. They are designed to carry maximum amount of cargo—human and otherwise—while also being safe and fuel-efficient, and that dictates their shape.

The Toyota Sienna is no exception, and most automotive writers have few nice things to say about the Sienna’s design. Road & Track half-heartedly classifies it and other minivans as “family cartons,” and MyRide.com, the most vocal supporter of this family hauler’s lines, finds “the basic shape of the Sienna appealing,” though they cite its “sneering grille work and those big headlights” as the features that create the strongest impression. Kelley Blue Book offers mild props, calling the Sienna “smartly styled,” but admits that the van, now in its fifth year, “offers nothing radical in the way of exterior features or design.”

Inside, the Sienna is no more exciting, but here its conservative style finds fans. Edmunds reports “the Sienna’s spacious cabin is handsomely fitted.” “The Sienna driver sits before a smooth, organic dashboard, with a prominent if slightly awkward center stack,” says MyRide.com. They like its standard trim with its “dark, lacquered-look plastic,” but are less favorable of the faux wood on the XLE and limited, which they consider “looks tacked on.”

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.
