Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.
You can interpret our ratings in the following way:
5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.
4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.
3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.
2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.
1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.
2015 Toyota Sienna OVERVIEW
The Toyota Sienna remains one of the more popular minivans fighting the stigma of an unexciting vehicle made for transporting kids around. But the Sienna is also proof that minivans are some of the most spacious and accommodating vehicles on the market -- and it has a couple of tricks up its sleeve, including available all-wheel drive.
What's New for 2015
For 2015, the Sienna gets a mild facelift in the form of a new front grille and headlights, revised taillights on most trims, a stiffer body structure and upgraded interior materials. Also new is an available Driver Easy Speak system, which allows the driver's voice to be projected over the rear speakers -- your kids can't claim they didn't hear you. The Sienna also gets standard Entune display audio and a seat cushion airbag for the front passenger.
Choosing Your Toyota Sienna
All Siennas get a 3.5-liter V6 engine with 266 horsepower and a six-speed automatic. Most are front-wheel drive models, but all-wheel drive is an option on LE, XLE and Limited trim levels; keep in mind the Sienna is the only minivan that currently offers that option. Seating capacity ranges between seven and eight passengers, depending on trim or options.
The 2015 upgrades keep the Sienna competitive in the minivan category, amid new and nicer competitors. The SE is an interesting package that is mostly successful in shaking the uncool factor of the vehicle, but an XLE with all-wheel drive is a commodious all-weather machine that would give most crossovers a run for their money in terms of space and traction -- as well as value.
