Expert Quotes:

Second- and third-row passengers can also enjoy an optional 16.4-inch dual-view LCD screen that unfolds from the headliner while dropping jaws. It can display two separate signals side-by-side or one single standard or widescreen program. Despite its large size, it doesn't block the driver's view out the back – we checked.
Autoblog

the options list for this version rivals that of European luxury sedans (think dual-view entertainment center, panorama backup camera, radar cruise-control, front and rear parking sonar, dual moonroofs, navigation system with XM NavTraffic and 10-speaker JBL sound system).
Los Angeles Times

Unlike the Chrysler minivans, however, Toyota does not offer satellite television.

The power liftgate makes loading cargo as easy as loading the kids into the minivan.

...All Siennas now ride on alloy wheels (bye bye plastic-disguised steelies) and all enjoy three-zone (dual front plus aft passeneger) air conditioning across the board.
Motor Trend

While Chrysler continues to offer minivans priced with strong value in mind, Toyota's Sienna aims at a richer slice of the market, one with more features and a price tag that starts at about $27,000 this year.

For that, the base Sienna comes with a good list of standard equipment, including three rows of seating, with a fold-away third-row seat and side doors that slide manually; power windows, locks; and mirrors; three-zone air conditioning; remote keyless entry; a tilt/telescoping steering wheel; and an AM/FM/CD player with an auxiliary jack.

The Sienna LE has added some of the equipment that had been standard in more expensive models last year. It now offers a USB port; Bluetooth with audio streaming; automatic climate control; power front seats; a power tailgate; power sliding side doors; a center console; sunshades for the rear seats; satellite radio; and steering-wheel audio and phone controls. The well-trimmed XLE gets leather upholstery; a sunroof; and heated front seats.

The mildly sporty Sienna SE has specific suspension tuning, and also gets 19-inch wheels; sport trim; LED taillights; and a leather-trimmed steering wheel.

At the most expensive end of the lineup, the Sienna Limited takes the XLE's features and adds a dual sunroof; overhead console; a sliding center console; second-row "lounge seats" and a power-folding third-row seat, as well as a JBL audio system.

Options on various models include DVD navigation, with Toyota's Entune mobile-app connectivity suite; a Dual View rear-seat DVD entertainment system with an immense 16.4-inch wide pair of screens; and premium audio. On a recent drive, we watched the latest Star Trek movie on the Sienna's widescreen system; trust us, you'll want it.

Conclusion

Big LCD screens and lounge seats transform the Sienna into a plush family wagon, if it isn't quite as feature-laden as the Chrysler minivans.

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.
