2016 Toyota Sienna vs. Its Competition

2016 Toyota Sienna
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The minivan segment has fewer players than it once did, but that seems to only have heated up competition among the major contenders.

Honda's Odyssey is the opposite, with interesting lightning-bolt lines down its side, but some of its more desirable features are bundled into the most expensive trims, though Bluetooth and a six-speed automatic are now standard across the board.

The Chrysler minivans are still the sales champions; they offer lots of interior space, a very low base price, and more features than other models, down to their exclusive fold-away second-row seats; their big downside is plainer styling, even by minivan standards.

The Nissan Quest is smaller and less flexible than any other minivan on the market, but has the best handling among larger vans.

Of all the alternatives, the Kia Sedona may offer the best mix of luxury features and big interior space—though it lacks a fold-away second-row seat, too.

Quick Specs
The 2016 Toyota Sienna posts some of the best gas-mileage and crash-test scores among minivans; only the Chrysler vans are more flexible.
The 2016 Chrysler Town & Country piles a lavish amount of equipment and luxury touches into an aging body that suffers in the toughest crash tests.
The 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan is an exceptional value among minivans, but some crash-test scores are cause for concern.
The 2016 Honda Odyssey stands at the top of the minivan heap, with more design flair and more driving enjoyment than most other three-row rivals.
The 2016 Kia Sedona is a viable alternative to the four top-selling minivans, with a quiet and spacious interior, a very comfortable high-end seating option, a smooth ride, and a modern infotainment system.
The Nissan Quest may have the best road manners of any minivan, but it lags in safety and space, two musts for most minivan buyers.
