2021 Toyota Sienna vs. Its Competition

2021 Toyota Sienna XSE
Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Senior Editor

The remaining contenders in the dwindling minivan segment have started to repurpose themselves as a little more premium and specialized—mostly toward the empty nesters who appreciate their easy entry and exit combined with their easy reconfigurability.

While the 2021 Toyota Sienna is the one that makes a gas-mileage play, the Chrysler Pacifica wows with its plush ride and interior appointments, and its Pacifica Hybrid offers 32 miles of all-electric range.

The Honda Odyssey goes all-in on safety features and is probably the most spacious inside.

The Kia Sedona is more focused on value, and it’s quite thirsty.

Beyond that, people who aren’t entirely convinced that sliding side doors are the best might want to consider the Chevrolet Suburban full-size SUV or the Toyota Highlander three-row SUV that also can be had as a hybrid.
