2001 Toyota Sienna Review

Lacks the size of other minivans, but is extremely safe and reliable.

Reviewed by Automotive on

Overview

The 2001 Toyota Sienna excels in many areas that make it an excellent minivan for any family. It has terrific safety ratings. Plus, it comes in three trim levels to best match consumers’ needs.

The 2001 Toyota Sienna does have some downsides. When compared to other minivans, it is noticeably smaller. That might not matter to some buyers, but it definitely reduces interior comfort and cargo capacity.

The Range

Body Styles: minivan
Engines: 3.0-liter V-6
Transmissions: four-speed automatic
Models: Toyota Sienna CE, Toyota Sienna LE, Toyota Sienna XLE

What's New

The 2001 Toyota Sienna receives variable valve technology that adds extra horsepower and lb-ft of torque to the three-liter, V-6 engine.

Exterior

The 2001 Toyota Sienna is a family minivan that looks nice without looking fancy. The body-long rear windows are definitely nice for passengers, even though it can look a little strange from the outside. Once consumers get used to seeing those big windows on a small body, though, it no longer looks strange.

Interior

While the 2001 Toyota Sienna makes efficient use of its interior space, shoppers can't deny that it's smaller than many competitors. However, that may bother potential buyers who really want the space advantage of a minivan. Smaller equals lighter, and that means better fuel efficiency.

The 2001 Toyota Sienna really does excel at offering as much as possible within its small interior. It has removable modular seating that lets owners customize arrangements. With a little work, they can pick the kids up at school one day and drop off a load of boxes at the office the next. The third-row seat has a 50-50 split that allows for added storage space without taking away the entire seat. That's nice, but it doesn't match third-row seats found in Mazda and Honda minivans that actually fold down into the floor.

The 2001 Toyota Sienna is equipped with uncomfortable seats, but despite these complaints, it has a very nice aesthetic, similar to the Camry. It uses nice materials that probably make it look a little fancier than it actually is. That's a plus for anyone who wants a vehicle that continues to look nice years after purchasing it.

Performance & Handling

While the 2001 Toyota Sienna comes in three trim levels, there is only one engine available: a three-liter V-6 that offers 210 hp and 220 lb-ft of torque. That's not going to win any races, but it meets the needs of a family minivan quite well.

The 2001 Toyota Sienna has excellent handling that feels more like a sedan than a minivan. Take out the higher road perspective, and drivers could easily think that they're driving a Camry. The driving experience is further improved by an extremely quiet interior. If they hit a well-paved highway, they'll float along with barely any noise at all. That's a huge benefit for parents who need to keep an ear on their children during long road trips.

Safety

The 2001 Toyota Sienna has excellent safety features and ratings that make it a great family vehicle. It comes standard with four-wheel anti-lock brakes, electronic brake force distribution, and even a tire pressure monitoring system. Stability control and side airbags come optional.

The 2001 Toyota Sienna really shines when it's protecting passengers during an accident. The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) gives it five stars in passenger and driver ratings and five stars for rear side impacts. Meanwhile, front side impacts and rollovers get four stars. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gives the 2001 Sienna its highest rating of ?good? for frontal offset collisions.
