Overview

Despite the hubbub over crossovers and SUVs, minivans still rule the roost when it comes to practical family transportation. The 2020 Toyota Sienna is a case in point – it can seat eight, return decent gas mileage, haul home nearly anything, and still fit in the garage. Those shopping for the utmost in suburban practicality can look again to the Sienna.

What's New for 2020

The Sienna enters 2020 unchanged.

Choosing Your Toyota Sienna

The common denominator of every Sienna trim is a 3.5-liter V6 which puts out 293 horsepower and 263 pound-feet of torque. An eight-speed automatic transmission normally routes this power to the front wheels, but all-wheel drive is available on most trims. The Sienna is the only minivan offering such a drivetrain; the competing vans from Kia, Honda, and Chrysler are all exclusively front-wheel drive.

Opt for a front-wheel-drive model and gas mileage checks in at an EPA-estimated 19 miles per gallon city, 26 mpg highway, and 21 combined – not a bad showing for a vehicle that tips the scales at 4,300 pounds. Mileage drops to 18/24/20 mpg (city/highway/combined) with all-wheel drive.

Since 2018, Toyota has been putting their suite of active-safety and driver-assistance packages in all their vehicles, and the Sienna is no exception. Every trim gets the full helping of safety technology, including lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, and automatic high beams.

The Sienna is available in eight trims:

Toyota Sienna

L

Starting things off in the Sienna realm is the lowly L, priced at $32,510 (all prices include the $1,095 destination fee). Distinguishing the L from afar are black door handles, black exterior mirrors with power adjustment, 17-inch wheels, and a color-keyed rear spoiler. Other standard features include a windshield wiper de-icer, manual sliding rear doors, three-zone climate control, manually adjustable front seats, cloth upholstery, second-row captain's chairs, and remote keyless entry. Other features by the numbers: five USB ports, three 12-volt outlets, six cupholders, and two glove compartments.

Infotainment is accessed via a 7-inch touchscreen. It houses Scout GPS compatibility, Siri Eyes Free, Apple CarPlay, voice recognition, and Bluetooth, as well as access to Connect cloud services that come free for three years. Incorporated into the gauge cluster is a 4.2-inch digital information screen that can show various readouts ranging from current gas mileage to outside temperature.

No packages or standalone options are offered on the L.

Toyota Sienna

LE

Next in the pecking order is the $35,330 Sienna LE. Compared to the L, the LE adds color-keyed heated mirrors, power-sliding doors, color-keyed door handles, black roof rails, and a rear bumper protector.

Inside, there's eight-way power seats, a second-row bench seat, sunshades for the back two rows, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and an overhead console with dome lights, door controls, and a conversation mirror. LE models also get HD radio, Sirius XM compatibility, a fixed center console, a second-row storage compartment, and more cupholders, bringing the total to 10.

The LE Preferred Package ($995) represents the only available option package. It bestows the Sienna with blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, a smart key entry system for all doors, push-button start, and remote illuminated entry.

Toyota Sienna

SE

The "sports car" of the Sienna family is the $38,660 SE. This trim is offered with an exclusive sport-tuned suspension and sport-calibrated steering; these two upgrades should be enough to make the SE the enthusiast's choice. If more convincing is needed, the SE further persuades with 19-inch wheels, underbody spoilers front and rear, smoked chrome trim, sport instrumentation, and a sport mesh grille. Other upgrades include a power liftgate, wide-angle fog lights, LED daytime running lights, perforated leather upholstery, heated front seats, and a leather-trimmed steering wheel.

The Nightshade Package ($700) – surprise – paints the Sienna black and adds black trim. A moonroof with a sunshade is available for $850, while the moonroof combined with the Nightshade Package runs $1,550.

The SE Preferred Package ($3,815) includes blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, audible rear park assist, a smart key entry system, push-button start, chrome door handles, remote illuminated entry, the power moonroof, a driver microphone, and a premium infotainment system with a 10-speaker JBL system and navigation. Buyers can also bundle the Nightshade Package and SE Preferred Package for $4,515.

Toyota Sienna

SE Premium

Closely related to the SE is the SE Premium, which costs $44,755. To the SE's list of features it adds a rear-seat Blu-ray DVD player, navigation, a 10-speaker JBL audio system, and a driver microphone. The Nightshade Package remains available for $700.

Toyota Sienna

XLE

The $39,055 Sienna XLE trades off sport-tuned hardware for more luxurious trappings. Standard features include blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, chrome trim, a power moonroof, 17-inch wheels, leather upholstery, heated front seats, a smart key entry system, power rear quarter windows, and wood grain interior trim. The lone option available is the XLE Navigation Package ($1,410), which adds a navigation system with voice recognition, Toyota Connected Services, and rear parking sensors.

Toyota Sienna

XLE Premium

The XLE Premium starts at $42,350. It's very similar to the SE Premium in that it's essentially an XLE with the driver microphone, navigation, and a Blu-ray DVD player. Oddly enough, it doesn't include the JBL audio system that comes with the SE Premium, which most likely accounts for the cheaper starting price.

Toyota Sienna

Limited

The Limited trim pulls out all the stops, as it should, considering the asking price of $45,405. Standard features include seven-passenger seating, LED daytime running lights, a dual moonroof, power third-row seats, front and rear parking sensors, navigation, the JBL audio system, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, a sliding center console, a heated steering wheel, driver's seat memory function, 18-inch wheels, and a driver microphone. There are no options available.

Toyota Sienna

Limited Premium

At the tippity-top of the Sienna totem pole is the Limited Premium. It costs $48,925 and adds the Blu-Ray player, as well as HID headlights and rain-sensing windshield wipers.

CarsDirect Tip

With lots of variants and hardly any available packages, its all about picking the right trim with the 2020 Toyota Sienna. We're partial to the SE, as the extra bit of verve added by the sport-tuned suspension and steering should make this breadbox more enjoyable to drive. If that's not your thing, the XLE is the way to go, as it is chock-full of useful features and yet doesn't break the bank.

An old-school approach. Some may call minivans old-fashioned. The 2020 Toyota Sienna would be inclined to agree. It hasn’t changed much in the decades it’s been on sale, but it still offers stolid minivan practicality.

Plunk a 2020 Sienna next to one from 2005 and it would be easy to see the family resemblance. The shape has changed little, and the interior is starting to feel dated as well. Up against stylish (well, stylish for a minivan) rivals like the Chrysler Pacifica and the Honda Odyssey, the Sienna looks like yesteryear.

But the Sienna’s fundamental mission hasn’t changed, and that means impressive carrying ability and a long list of features. Again, the Sienna is a traditionalist – you won’t find the built-in vacuum of the Odyssey or the stowable seats of the Pacifica, but you will find healthy standard features and enough customization to suit most buyers.

Plentiful power, but gas only. One of the Sienna’s main virtues is its heart. Under the hood is a refined 3.5-liter V6 that delivers 296 horsepower of smooth power. Paired with a competent eight-speed automatic transmission, it’s willing and unobtrusive.

It gets decent mileage for a minivan, too. The EPA estimates that the Sienna will do up to 19 miles per gallon city, 26 mpg highway, and 21 combined. That’s on par with competitors.

But given Toyota’s powertrain expertise, we’re surprised to not see a Sienna hybrid variant. Chrysler offers a hybrid version of the Pacifica, and Toyota themselves offer a hybrid Highlander.

All-weather versatility. Where the Sienna is the undisputed champ is in inclement weather. It’s currently the only minivan on the market that offers all-wheel drive. The system is available on six of the seven trims, and it readies the Sienna for mountain excursions or wintertime commutes.

The Sienna’s other superlative is interior space. The cabin boasts a staggering 164.4 cubic feet of space with the seats removed. Even with all three rows in place, the Sienna can hold 39.1 cubic feet behind the seats. That’s a feat few three-row SUVs can match, and it makes a difference with a car full of baseball gear.

The third row is even large enough to seat adults. The rest of the seating isn’t shabby either, with optional second-row captain’s chairs that recline and come with footrests. It’s not the most modern interior, but it's comfortable.

The seats can be removed, but it takes some labor to do so. Many buyers will never need it, but there are times when we’re grateful for stowable rows like those in the Chrysler Pacifica.


Toyota Sienna

Half the safety story. Like the rest of Toyota’s lineup, the Sienna benefits from comprehensive technology. A 7-inch touchscreen controls infotainment and offers Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa compatibility. A plethora of USB ports keep devices charged, and a dual-screen entertainment system with a BluRay player is optional. The only regrettable absences are Android Auto and onboard wi-fi.

Safety tech is plentiful as well. All Siennas roll off the line with a full suite of active safety features including automatic emergency braking, lane keeping assist, automatic high beams, and adaptive cruise control.

Oddly enough, it’s the fundamentals where the Sienna falters. It received decent but uninspiring scores from IIHS crash testing, leaving it short of the Top Safety Pick category (which both the Odyssey and the Pacifica earned).

Final thoughts. The 2020 Toyota Sienna ticks most of the boxes minivan buyers care about, with one big ace up its sleeve. All-wheel drive is a trick no other minivan can match, and that alone may win the Sienna a following. Exceptional interior space and a strong powertrain don’t hurt.

But the Sienna’s competition is stronger than ever, and the Toyota isn't without flaws. The Pacifica proved that minivans don’t have to look boring, and the Odyssey offers a more modern package. In a car intended for family duty, middling crash scores are a liability (though standard safety tech helps).

The Sienna makes sense for the right buyer. For families in snowy climates or those who value cavernous space, it’s a compelling choice. For everyone else, the Sienna deserves a look, but don't be afraid to shop around.
