2022 Toyota Sienna vs. Its Competition

2022 Toyota Sienna
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

There has never been a better time to shop for a minivan.

Chrysler’s Pacifica leapfrogged its impressive predecessor when it was reworked last year; it’s an easy favorite, especially in hybrid form—though the V-6 that’s mandatory with all-wheel drive is thirsty.

The Kia Carnival is new this year and strikes a great balance between value, style, and refinement.

Honda is hardly behind the game with its suave Odyssey, though we’d like an all-wheel-drive offering.

Not sure you really need a van? A Toyota Highlander is basically the same vehicle, except with a less-convenient interior and doors guaranteed to swing into other cars in parking lots.
