It’s rare for one component to singularly propel an entire car to class-leading status, but that’s exactly the situation with the 2022 Toyota Sienna. You see, every version is a hybrid that gets 36 or 35 mpg over to the 22 mpg returned by its gas-only, V6-powered rivals. That’s a huge gas and money saving benefit, and considering the way people usually drive minivans, it far outweighs the fact that it’s running out of power . At the same time, the rest of the Sienna is fully competitive among minivans, with other highlights being exceptional cabin storage space, a bold interior design and versatile Super Long Slide second-row seats that are particularly suitable parents with older children. The Sienna’s handling is also more precise than its competitors, while its functional content, cargo space and safety are just as strong. Therefore, with most other things being equal or at least similar enough, the Sienna’s huge fuel economy advantage becomes a deciding factor. Of course, there is a competitor that gets its money’s worth: the Chrysler Pacific Hybrid, a plug-in model that offers all-electric range. So it can be even more efficient than the Sienna, but it’s also more expensive (and harder to find at dealerships). In our comparison test between the two, it was nearly a tie with the edge going ever so slightly to the Sienna. Either way, we would consider these two things first when looking for a minivan.

The Sienna adds a unique new trim level for 2022: the Woodland Edition. It gets a 0.6-inch increase in ground clearance from unique shocks and springs, which might not sound like much, but the resulting 6.9 inches compares to 4.5 in the Honda Odyssey and 5.4 in the Chrysler Pacifica. It also has its own 18-inch wheel/tire assembly, darkened exterior trim, exclusive colors, roof rail crossbars and a 1,500-watt power outlet. There are only minor feature content upgrades elsewhere in the Sienna range after its all-new last year. What does the Sienna’s interior and in-car technology look like? The Sienna’s front cabin is surprisingly elevated in style for a minivan, with a design that departs even bolder from the norm than the surprisingly luxurious new Kia Carnival. The controls are angled slightly towards the driver, while the tall center console provides more of a car or SUV feel. Nonetheless, this console is really just a bridge across a vast open canyon ripe for anything you want to put in it (probably a purse). There are also a number of other handy places up front to store things, which we go over in this in-depth review of the Sienna’s interior storage. Unfortunately, we found that cabin quality differs significantly by trim level. Upper XSE, Limited and Platinum trim levels (top and bottom right) are upholstered, …
