If you just look at the sales numbers and available models, minivans are dead and buried under the crushing weight of crossovers and SUVs. But that’s not quite true on the showroom floor.
Sure, fewer automakers are churning out these people movers, but minivans are still there to handle your multi-passenger problem. The 2022 Toyota Sienna entered its fourth generation last year and was moving away from its traditional internal combustion-only approach.
This latest generation of Toyota minivan is hybrid only, and available with all-wheel drive if you want extra traction. The only powertrain available uses a 2.5-liter inline-four that powers Toyota’s eCVT. Combining the electric motor with the internal combustion engine, this Sienna produces a respectable 245 hp while hitting 36 mpg in the city. and Highway.
In this episode of Quick turn, West Coast Editor Mark Vaughn puts the 2022 Toyota Sienna through its paces and takes it with you. Vaughn shows you around the ’22 Sienna and highlights its styling before taking you inside the Sienna to show off its interior features. Vaughn also takes you for a live recorded ride review.
Plus, Vaughn and host Wesley Wren talk about minivans’ bigger role in the market, the influx of consumer tech into the Sienna, and what minivans are all about. Closing out the show, the pair break down what makes the ’22 Sienna special.
