Used Car: 2013 Toyota Sienna Review
The 2013 Toyota Sienna is one of the only minivans in its class with available all-wheel drive, and test drivers liked its spacious cabin and powerful V6 engine.
The 2013 Toyota Sienna comes with a V6 engine, and reviewers agreed that it provides an impressive amount of power. Critics said the Sienna’s six-speed automatic transmission supplies rapid, seamless gear changes. The 2013 Sienna comes standard with front-wheel drive, but, unlike most 2013 minivans, all-wheel drive is available. According to the EPA, the 2013 Toyota Sienna gets up to 18/25 mpg city/highway, which is normal for the class. Test drivers reported that the 2013 Sienna has a very comfortable ride and handling that’s typical for a minivan, with moderate body lean and steering that is accurate but doesn’t provide great feedback. They said SE models have a firmer ride and more composed handling.
Most critics said the 2013 Toyota Sienna has an appealing interior design, though some noticed that it has a few hard plastic surfaces that look and feel cheap. Reviewers said that the Sienna, which seats up to eight, offers comfortable seating for adults in all three rows. With the third-row seat folded into the floor and the second-row seats removed, the 2013 Sienna has 150 cubic feet of cargo space, making it among the roomiest in the class. Standard features in the 2013 Sienna include cloth upholstery and tri-zone climate control. The 2013 Sienna is available with a rearview camera, Bluetooth, a rear-seat DVD system, blind spot monitoring, navigation and Toyota's Entune system, which provides access to smartphone apps like OpenTable and Pandora. Test drivers appreciated the Sienna’s high-tech available features, such as the rear-seat DVD entertainment system, which features a split screen that allows passengers to watch two different video sources at the same time.
