The Toyota Sienna minivan’s optional all-wheel drive and refined, upscale interior are among its notable traits. With room for up to eight passengers, the Sienna’s competition includes the Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country, as well as the Honda Odyssey, Hyundai Entourage and Nissan Quest. Siennas are available in four trim levels: CE, LE, XLE and top-of-the-line Limited.
There are no significant changes to the Sienna for 2010.
The current Sienna rides a 119.3-inch wheelbase, measures 201 inches long overall and stands 68.9 inches tall, which is similar to other minivans, including the Grand Caravan, Odyssey and long-wheelbase Kia Sedona.

Two second-row seating choices are available. The seven-passenger configuration features second-row captain’s chairs; the passenger-side chair can be moved side to side, permitting either a bench or bucket seat arrangement. For eight-passenger seating, CE and LE models can be equipped with a three-way, split-folding bench seat in the second row. In that setup, a “Front and Center” middle seat can move nearly 13 inches closer to the front seats, making infants in child-safety seats more accessible.
