2011 Toyota Sienna: $41,144

Several reviewers noted that while they enjoyed the "Swagger Wagon" marketing for the redesigned minivan, in reality, it fell short of that title.<br>
<br>
Pros: David Thomas of Cars.com "found its performance quite good with a strong engine and exceptional handling," while James Healey of USA Today applauded the fact that the Sienna was the "only van available with all-wheel drive, a definite plus." Newman noted, "I like that the Sienna's exterior styling doesn't scream minivan."<br>
<br>
Cons: Many reviewers disliked the loud engine noise, while Kristin Varela of Motherproof.com noted the poor interior quality. Several commented that the "loungelike second-row seats" were "gimmicky."<br>

"I'm just not that impressed with the Sienna," family tester Travis Weatherby said. "I was expecting to be blown away." Said Brian Robinson of "MotorWeek": ""It's comfortable enough, and although there are lots of ways to configure the seats, they're not the easiest or most intuitive to figure out."
