The 2021 Toyota Sienna wants to prove minivans can have a wild side. Thanks to its bold exterior, the new Sienna certainly stands out among rivals such as the Honda Odyssey, Kia Sedona and Chrysler Pacifica. Not many people choose a minivan because of its daring design, though it’s nice to see Toyota didn’t shy away from adding visual excitement to the latest Sienna.

Above all else, minivans are known for being crowd pleasers, thanks to their combination of driving comfort, load-lugging capability and ease of use. Many minivans allow you to flip, slide or fold the seats to create a customizable cabin. In this regard, however, the 2021 Sienna takes something of a step backward with a less versatile cabin. And while the new hybrid powertrain returns impressive fuel economy that will save you money on gas, it’s worth noting the base price of the Sienna is roughly $3,000 more than the previous generation.
