2018 Toyota Sienna Review

2018 toyota sienna review

The minivan segment has a reputation for lacking style, and many families gravitate toward SUVs because of that. However, the 2018 Toyota Sienna has a few aces up its sleeve, so if you need the best of an SUV with more space and style, it’s time for a visit to Keyes Toyota for a test drive.

2018 Toyota Sienna Details

Model details

  • 3.5-liter V6 engine
  • 296 horsepower
  • 263 lb-ft of torque
  • Fuel economy: 19/27 mpg (FWD), 18/24 mpg (AWD)

The folks at KBB aren’t easy to impress, but when looking at this minivan, they concluded, “[T]he 2018 Toyota Sienna qualifies as one of the better choices.” Anyone who needs more space than they’d get from an SUV, the ability to carry up to eight passengers, and in-credible amount of versatility should start here.

The styling of the Toyota Sienna is more conservative than a few of its competitors. But let’s be honest, you’re not buying a minivan strictly for its looks. So if your concerns are more earthbound, the great fuel economy is more than you’ll find in many competitors, and the 39 to 150 cubic feet of cargo capacity leads its class. The price is slightly higher, but so is long-term resale value. And you’re sure to love the all-wheel drive, which you can’t get on any other minivan.
