2015 Toyota Sienna Overview

Is the 2015 Toyota Sienna a Good Minivan?

The 2015 Toyota Sienna meets the needs of most minivan shoppers: It has tons of cargo space and offers comfortable accommodations for all passengers. A long list of standard and available features also makes the Sienna a solid choice for anyone looking for an eight-passenger minivan.

Used 2015 Toyota Sienna Performance and Interior

The 2015 Toyota Sienna comes with a muscular 266-horsepower V6 engine and a six-speed automatic transmission. It delivers good power and throttle response, and the transmission shifts smoothly and efficiently. However, the engine can be noisy under hard acceleration. The Sienna provides a comfortable ride and well-weighted steering with little body lean around corners. The van's brakes are strong too. It's also the only minivan with available all-wheel drive.

A front-wheel-drive Sienna gets average fuel economy estimates for the class at 18 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. With AWD, it drops to 16/23 mpg.

The 2015 Toyota Sienna seats up to eight when a removable second-row middle seat is in place. The front seats and second-row captain's chairs are comfortable and spacious. Unlike some other minivans or SUVs, the Sienna has sufficient room for two adults or three kids in its third row, and you can glean more space with the sliding second-row seats. The last row folds down into the floor, contributing to the Sienna's class-leading 150 cubic feet of cargo space. The Sienna has four complete sets of LATCH car-seat connectors located on the outboard second-row seats and the third-row passenger-side and middle seats.

With its substantial refresh for the 2015 model year, Toyota ditched the Sienna’s dated cabin design and hard plastics for an upscale interior with plenty of soft-touch surfaces. The Entune infotainment system with a 6.1-inch touch-screen display is standard in base 2015 models, and upper trims feature a larger 7-inch touch screen. Both versions are easy to use. Other standard features include three-zone automatic climate control, a rearview camera, a USB port, and Bluetooth. Available amenities include a moonroof, a premium JBL audio system, satellite radio, HD Radio, navigation, and a dual-screen Blu-ray player.

Should I Consider Another Used Sienna?

The 2015 Sienna is part of the minivan’s third generation, which launched for 2011 and includes the 2017 model. The Sienna underwent a heavy refresh for the 2015 model year. While you could stay in the same generation and save money by shopping for an older model, the 2015 Sienna is a better choice than previous model years because of its standard infotainment system and more upscale interior.

Which Used Toyota Sienna Is Right for Me?

The 2015 Sienna is available in five trim levels: L, LE, SE, XLE, and Limited. Your best bet is an XLE Sienna, which adds comfort and convenience features such as leather seats, heated seats, power-adjustable front seats, a 7-inch touch screen, a power liftgate, and a moonroof. You’ll find advanced safety features like parking sensors, blind spot monitoring, and rear cross traffic alert in some models.

Though the Sienna has an above-average predicted reliability rating, you may want to consider a certified pre-owned Sienna for additional assurance. Toyota provides a one-year/12,000-mile limited warranty on all of its CPO vehicles, and it extends the original new-car powertrain warranty to seven years or 100,000 miles. Each CPO Toyota must pass a 160-point inspection. Additional benefits like towing and roadside assistance may be available, so read the Toyota warranty page carefully.

2015 Toyota Sienna and Other Minivans to Consider

Which Is Better: 2015 Toyota Sienna or 2015 Honda Odyssey?

The 2015 Honda Odyssey features excellent performance for the class, thanks to its peppy engine and carlike, athletic handling. The Odyssey's interior quality is unmatched by rivals, though the Sienna comes close. We named the Odyssey our 2015 Best Minivan for Families because of its high safety scores, comfortable seating, and numerous standard and available features. The Honda falters, however, when it comes to predicted reliability, which is below average. That gives the Sienna the edge, though each vehicle is a great choice.

Which Is Better: 2015 Toyota Sienna or 2015 Kia Sedona?

The 2015 Kia Sedona earns high safety scores and has a premium cabin like the Sienna, but those are its only real high points. A sluggish engine, an unrefined transmission, and clumsy handling mean that the Sedona is far off the Sienna's pace when it comes to performance. And despite its modern and intuitive technology features, the Sedona gets below-average marks for its predicted reliability.

Which Is Better: 2015 Toyota Sienna or 2015 Toyota Highlander?

Choosing between the Toyota Sienna and the 2015 Highlander comes down to whether you prefer a minivan or an SUV. Both Toyotas can seat up to eight and share the same good safety and reliability ratings. With its available V6 engine, the Highlander matches the Sienna's sturdy everyday performance. If you're looking for utility, go with the Sienna; its maximum cargo volume is nearly double that of the Highlander's, and the Sienna's third row is more spacious for passengers. The Highlander is still a great midsize SUV, though, and we named it our 2015 Best 3-Row SUV for Families.
