The 2020 Toyota Sienna Isn’t Fun to Drive But It Doesn’t Have to Be

Minivans –– either love them or hate them. They are in the center of polarized opinions. There are die-hard minivan lovers that will never give up their sliding doors. Then there are the folks who refuse to ever drive one. A few who convert along the way, but regardless of where you stand on the subject they aren’t exactly the sportiest handle. The Toyota Sienna is proof that although minivans aren’t turbo charged or capable of notable 0-60 time measurements, they really don’t need to be.

The 2020 Toyota Sienna is a great all around family car that earned great rating from Consumer Reports. Though it isn’t exactly agile, it does have quite a bit to offer –– if a minivan is what you’re looking for.

A minivan with options

The 2020 Toyota Sienna is a minivan with plenty of options. From the L trim level starting at $31,640 to the Limited trim with a starting price of $44,535, the Sienna has a long list of available features. Toyota even threw in a 2020 Nightshade edition for all those families out there looking for a black on black minivan.

The all-wheel drive feature makes the Sienna one of few minivans with the option for such drivetrain capabilities. Higher trim models include luxury features like plush leather, wood detail, and second row loungers with footrests. Who doesn’t want that?

Great for passengers

With seating for up to eight, the 2020 Toyota Sienna will get you there in safety and comfort. While not exactly a posh passenger vehicle, the Sienna is accommodating enough to keep the crew happy with good noise reviews and ratings for smooth suspension.

Extra protection added by the trusted Toyota safety suite comes standard even on the lowest trim. This additional peace of mind makes toting precious cargo around town even easier.

The 2020 Sienna offers upgrades like a dual disc blu-ray entertainment center. It also boast some of the largest cargo space of all the minivans, each of which are a huge plus when you’re loaded down.

The Toyota Sienna has the tech

The 2020 Toyota Sienna features updated technology fit for any modern model. The standard 7-inch touch screen is the face of a user-friendly infotainment system.

Apple CarPlay compatibility is another of the Toyota minivan’s noteworthy tech features. Five USB ports are also included. With all of this technology, the WiFi capability can really come in handy. As far as minivan tech goes, the 2020 Sienna is doing great.

The 2020 Toyota Sienna is alright

With extras like Toyota Care and the awesome standard safety that come with a Toyota, it’s no wonder Consumer Reports gives this van such great ratings. But, while it maneuvers ok with a tight turning radius, it can still be a bit top heavy. High speeds when cornering a turn will cause the Sienna to lean, exposing drivability that is pretty typical of a minivan.

It may not be crushing cone tests, but it will get you from A to B in comfort and about as much style a minivan can offer. The 2020 Toyota Sienna may not be fun drive but it doesn’t have to be.
