The 2024 Toyota Sienna has class leading comfort and fuel economy. We take a look at the interior options, trim levels, and more in our review.  

What’s New for the 2024 Toyota Sienna?

Now deep into its fourth generation, the 2024 Sienna returns to market with six trims, FWD or AWD, and a single powertrain and transmission to rule them all. Buyers will love the exceptional 36 mpg on average that the Sienna gets and the versatile infotainment system that’s controllable with touches or with physical knobs and switches.

For the 2024 model year, the 25th-anniversary edition from last year’s Sienna lineup is gone. That leaves the model with six trims. Of those six, a few like the XSE AWD and the Woodland get darker wheels while the LE and XLE get darker headlight housings.

2024 Toyota Sienna Powertrain 8.5/10

Toyota’s approach to the Sienna powertrain is practical and conservative, to say the least. Every model regardless of trim or options uses the same 245 hp hybrid four-cylinder engine. Front-wheel drive is standard on all models, with AWD as optional except for the Woodland trim where AWD is standard. All models use a continuously variable transmission to move power from the engine to the tires. As a package, it’s dutiful at best and drab at worst.

245 hp isn’t much on today’s highways and it’s obvious in a vehicle as large as the Sienna. Passing maneuvers need to be calculated and precise. The CVT whines anytime you have to wail on the throttle for very long. The rest of the driving experience isn’t a saving grace either. The Sienna demonstrates notable body roll and an inconsistent feeling brake performance.

Thankfully, the steering feedback is really good. In tighter slower maneuvers it’s light and easy to use but on the highway, it firms up and makes long-haul trips a breeze. The big benefit of the powertrain setup here is that the Sienna manages to get 36 mpg across the board according to the EPA. The AWD version drops to 35 mpg in the city but that’s a tiny price to pay for the additional grip when needed. No other vehicle in the segment can match this level of fuel economy.

2024 Toyota Sienna Interior 9/10 

Toyota’s muse for the Sienna’s interior appears to be a command-center style. A large center console sits just to the right of the pilot’s seat with the gear lever, cupholders, and a storage cubby. The infotainment system sits proudly above an otherwise simplified dash design, and the usual window and door lock switchgear rests on the door card. The cabin envelops the driver to a degree and places all important controls within reach.

The second row is spacious with its available captain’s chairs and slides up to 25 inches to provide more room in the third row or to allow second-row passengers to stretch out. Sunshades are a regular feature in most Sienna models and provide a bit more comfort to rear-seat passengers. An available second-row entertainment system drops from the headliner for all in the rear to enjoy. That’s just a bit less flashy than the individual screens that many second-row counterparts offer but it gets a passing grade from us.

Overall, the Sienna provides a comfortable and composed ride with good cushioning, good support, and above-average road noise reduction. The available Woodland trim also makes short work of soft-roading trails so long as they’re relatively well cared for and rut-free. If there’s a part of the puzzle where the Sienna falls short it’s the second row which is comfortable but not removable. That limits cargo space overall. With all seats in place, the Sienna offers 33.5 cubic feet of cargo area. With the third row gone that expands to 101 cubic feet. Good, but not a leader. Notably, the Sienna can tow up to 3,500 pounds when properly equipped.

2024 Toyota Sienna Technology Features 9.25/10

The technology inside of the Sienna isn’t flashy or super futuristic but it does manage to meet all of the needs one would have. The infotainment system measures 9 inches regardless of trim and it’s controlled through touches or through physical knobs and buttons. We really like the blending of both options. The system itself is snappy and easy to navigate.

Toyota also includes integration with Android Auto, Amazon Alexa, and Apple CarPlay for those who prefer them. That’s a bevy of different ways to interact with the infotainment system and surely one for just about any buyer in the market. On top of that, an available 12-speaker JBL sound system is a nice upgrade from the standard six-speaker setup. A 7-inch driver information display and a heads-up display are also available. Finally, every trim has access to a rear-seat entertainment system as well.

In terms of safety technology, Toyota leads the way with a complete package of systems including adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning, lane-keep assist, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, and more. While the IIHS hasn’t released safety data on the 2024 Sienna, it was a Top Safety Pick+ winner last year and we expect similar results for the 2024 model.

2024 Toyota Sienna Overall Value 8.75/10 

Where practicality is the main focus the Sienna hits all of the high notes. It’s hard to recommend any vehicle that doesn’t inspire its driver but the truth is that minivans like the Sienna are meant to do a job beyond imparting driving passion, they’re meant to move people and things in comfort and safety. In the Sienna, one can accomplish those goals while benefiting from great fuel economy, above-average technology, and nice materials. Toyota even has some incentives on the Sienna to sweeten the deal right now. Overall Score 8.9/10

The Sienna is a perfectly passable minivan and in many ways, it’s the best of the bunch. We would love to see the CVT go away and for Toyota to offer more horsepower but both would likely reduce practicality which, in this case, is sort of the whole point. Toyota would do well to try and match other brands’ better warranty coverage too though we like the free two years of maintenance that come with every Sienna.
