Ask anyone on our staff, and they’ll tell you minivans are the unsung heroes of the automotive world. They might even add that minivans are the ultimate enthusiast cars. Why? These owners actually use their vehicles for what they're made to do. Why else would you buy one? Ego has no role in minivan ownership.
Consider our 40,000-mile test of this Cypress Green 2021
Toyota Sienna as proof. It traveled across the country multiple times; it hauled cargo and equipment; it served as a camera car on multiple photo and video shoots; and a member on our staff even outfitted it with a roof tent and took it on a honeymoon. The Sienna did all this in relative comfort, and its hybrid powertrain returned significantly better fuel economy than other minivans we've tested.
We cover all the details in this video, from interior comfort and functionality to service costs and what it was like to drive in winter. We also explain the downsides of installing a trailer hitch, including the reduced departure angle and how annoying the rear collision mitigation tech can be when you have a bike carrier installed.
Yes, this video is tardy—we wrapped up our test a few months back—but blame for that falls on internal scheduling alone, because reverence for the Cult of the Minivan remains steadfast.
