The 2013 Toyota Sienna succeeds in some meat-and-potatoes-minivan areas: It’s spacious, comfortable and has seating for up to eight passengers. Its standard 3.5-liter V-6 will get you up to speed quickly when you’re running late for your soccer-practice pickup. However, reviewer Jennifer Geiger says some subpar cabin materials, tricky-to-access rear rows and a noisy powertrain give up ground to competitors. That’s especially true if you’re spending more than $47,000 to load up on options, like Geiger’s test model. Your dollar will stretch further elsewhere.
