Parents Magazine calls the 2022 Toyota Sienna the Best Fuel-Efficient Minivan. So just how deserved is that title? Very. The new Toyota Sienna only comes as a hybrid, meaning you won’t be able to get a gas-powered Sienna anymore. And that just might be a good thing, especially during this time of sky high fuel prices.

If you’re looking for exact numbers (and you probably are), the 2022 Toyota Sienna gets up to 36 mpg according to autoblog. This is much better than the average fuel-powered minivan which gets roughly 22 mpg.
