Depending on your budget, the SE or SE Premium models would be our pick. They're certainly not the cheapest Siennas you can buy, but we think they're the best-driving minivan on the market. We appreciate their more confidence-inspiring steering and controlled suspension. They're also available with most of the same equipment as their LE and XLE comparables. Find a Toyota Sienna for sale
The 2017 Toyota Sienna comes in L, LE, SE, SE Premium, XLE, XLE Premium, Limited and Limited Premium trims.
The base Sienna L ($29,800) includes 17-inch alloy wheels, 3-zone manual climate control, automatic headlights, a rearview camera, 7-passenger seating, a 6.1-in center touchscreen with Toyota's Entune infotainment system, Siri Eyes Free functionality, Bluetooth, one USB port and a 4-speaker sound system.

It also offers optional all-wheel drive.
The sporty SE ($36,100) adds more aggressive styling, an improved suspension for better handling, more responsive steering, 19-in alloy wheels, unique styling elements, a power lift gate, leather upholstery, heated front seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.
The SE Premium ($40,800) adds a host of desirable options, such as a rear-seat entertainment system (includes a Blu-ray/DVD player and an HDMI port), keyless access with push-button starting, a navigation system, a sunroof, a blind spot monitoring system, rear cross-traffic alert and Entune smartphone app integration. Also included is Driver Easy Speak, which broadcasts the driver's voice subtly through the speakers to those in the back rows.
The XLE ($36,300) and the XLE Premium ($39,600) are equipped just like their SE counterparts, but they revert to the LE's styling, steering and suspension. The LE does differ, however, with a 4-way power passenger seat, keyless access with push-button start and power rear quarter windows. The XLE Premium differs by having rear parking sensors.
The Limited ($42,800) has all the XLE Premium's features minus the rear-seat entertainment system but plus unique 18-in wheels, LED running/accent lights, parking sensors, power-folding and auto-dimming mirrors, front and rear sunroofs, second-row captain's chairs (with recliner-style pop-up footrests and a sliding console), a heated steering wheel, upgraded leather upholstery, driver memory settings and a 10-speaker JBL sound system. On front-wheel-drive models, the third-row seat is also power-folding.
The Limited Premium ($46,200) adds xenon headlights, automatic wipers, automatic high beams and the rear-seat entertainment system.

2017 Honda Odyssey -- The Sienna's perennial nemesis is a little more versatile and a little sharper to drive (well, except the Sienna SE), while boasting a few additional features on upper trim levels.
2017 Chrysler Pacifica -- Chrysler's Pacifica is the new kid on the block, boasting a sharp new design, plenty of refinement and all the latest bells and whistles one can cram into a minivan, the latest evolution of Stow 'n Go seating and a unique hybrid model.
2017 Kia Sedona -- The handsome Kia Sedona is a strong competitor to the Sienna, offering lots of equipment, a comparably comfortable second-row, a wide range of safety features and a front interior design feels more like an SUV than a minivan. In fact, it just might be better than the Sienna.
