2012 Toyota Sienna OVERVIEW

For 2013, all Siennas get the 3.5-liter V6 with 266 horsepower and a six-speed automatic. The four-cylinder has been dropped. The Sienna is rated to get up to 25 MPG on the highway, pretty reasonable for a seven-passenger vehicle. Base models and LE, XLE and Limited models equipped with optional all-wheel drive can seat up to 8 passengers, with LATCH child seat connectors in both second and third rows. Also standard across the board are full-length curtain airbags, front and side airbags for front seat occupants and a driver's knee airbag.

The base Sienna comes with 17-inch alloy wheels, power windows, locks and mirrors, three-zone air conditioning, SiriusXM satellite radio and a tilt- and-telescoping steering wheel. LE adds an 8-seat option, power sliding doors and privacy glass, as well as opening up the option of all-wheel drive and touchscreen navigation with Toyota's Entune system. XLE adds fog lights, power liftgate, leather seats and offers a DVD Rear Entertainment System. The SE is the sportiest Sienna, with a ground- effects kit, 19-inch alloy wheels and sports suspension. The Limited is the most luxurious, with JBL audio and second-row lounge chairs. All 2013 Siennas get ToyotaCare complementary maintenance.

The Honda Odyssey is the chief competitor to the Sienna. It also offers 8-seat capabilities on all but the base model and has a smooth V6. The Odyssey also offers features such as 5.1 surround audio and a refrigerated cubby to cool drinks. But no Odyssey is available with all-wheel drive and safety features like blind-spot monitoring are only available on the most expensive version. The Chrysler Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan twins come with Stow 'n Go, the company's novel second and third-row seat folding system. These vans are also available with cross-path detection and two DVD screens. But no Chrysler Group minivan will seat eight people, the quality isn't quite as high as the Sienna and certain features drive the Town & Country's price high.

The Sienna remains one of, if not the, best choice for minivan shoppers. A wide variety of trim levels and available all-wheel drive mean it's a smart buy for most shoppers.
