You'll Like The 2007 Toyota Sienna If...

If you're comparing minivan comfort and convenience, you'll find the Sienna borrows many of the best ideas from each of its competitors and combines them into a strong, well-built platform.

You May Not Like The 2007 Toyota Sienna If...

The Sienna can get pricey as you move up the trim range, but the same can be said of the competition. About the only reason not to like this van is if you are not partial to the styling or interior layout.

What's New

The Sienna receives a big boost in power with the addition of a new, 3.5-liter V6 engine.

Interior Features

A look inside the Sienna clearly shows that Toyota has moved into the upscale van market. Trim levels grow to four: CE, LE, XLE and Limited. Each trim receives a great standard equipment list. The Sienna's seats take full advantage of the van's extra room and have been given wide seat bottoms as well as better back rests. The Sienna's seating configuration can hold up to eight passengers (two in front, three in the center and three in the third row's split-bench seat). Like the Honda Odyssey, the Sienna's rear seat can fold flush into the floor and features a 60/40 split. Cargo space behind the third seat has been improved thanks to the Sienna's longer wheelbase.

Exterior Features

The Sienna is smartly styled but offers nothing radical in the way of exterior features or design. Last year's overhaul added nearly five inches to the Sienna's wheelbase. Five inches may not seem like a lot, but to an engineer it's a dream come true. With those five extra inches, the Toyota team increased interior volume by over 45 cubic feet and also extended the Sienna's width and height without detracting from its stability. This new, wider footprint is responsible for much-needed extra hip and shoulder room, a noticeable shortcoming on the outgoing model.

Driving Impressions

The Sienna's new 3.5-liter V6 engine delivers where it counts, and it performs beautifully in both city and highway driving. The Sienna pulls quickly from a dead stop and power is masterfully managed by an electronically controlled five-speed automatic that makes the most of the engine's torque curve before seamlessly shifting to the next gear.

The Sienna's wide stance and long wheelbase make for an extremely smooth ride and further bolster the Sienna's already rock-solid stability. Some drivers may feel the steering effort to be somewhat heavy for a minivan, but the resultant firm and direct steering makes it possible to pull off highly accurate maneuvers not usually attempted in a vehicle of this sort.

Pricing Notes

The seven-passenger Sienna CE has a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $24,800, the all-wheel drive LE starts at $29,940 and the luxury-oriented XLE Limited at $36,110. Fully-loaded, the Sienna carries an eye-popping sticker price of around $48,000. Before you buy, be sure to check the most recent Fair Purchase Price to see what others are paying. The Sienna is expected to retain a high resale value, far better than that of its domestic rivals the Dodge Grand Caravan, Ford Freestar and Chevrolet Venture, but a few percentage points behind the Nissan Quest and Honda Odyssey.

Notable Equipment

The Sienna CE includes a V6 engine, five-speed automatic transmission, anti-lock brakes, 14 cup holders, rear defroster, side-impact and side-curtain airbags, dual sliding side doors, power door locks, illuminated remote keyless entry, power liftgate release, AM/FM stereo with CD, tilt/telescopic steering wheel, power windows, full wheel covers and a rear wiper.

Notable Options

Options vary by trim and include all-wheel drive, power seats, leather interior, heated front seats, cruise control, dual power sliding side doors, stability control, traction control, power-folding third-row seat (Limited), four-wheel disc brakes, power lumbar support, DVD rear-seat entertainment system and alloy wheels. The XLE and Limited trim offer laser-guided cruise control and optional navigation.

Favorite Features

Sliding Side-Door Power Windows

Sliding side-door power windows allow passengers to enjoy as much fresh air as they like.

Split Flush-Folding Third-Row Seat

The Sienna's split flush-folding third-row seat allows you to carry both additional passengers and cargo.

Under the Hood

There is only one engine offered with the Sienna: A robust new V6 offering strong off-the-line acceleration, quiet operation and decent fuel economy.

3.5-liter V6

266 horsepower @ 6200 rpm

245 lb.-ft. of torque @ 4700 rpm

EPA city/highway fuel economy: 19/26 (FWD), 18/23 (AWD)

Editors' Notes

The Toyota Sienna is considered one the best minivans on the market today. Although not as big as the Honda Odyssey or Dodge Grand Caravan, the Sienna is still a sizable family hauler with room for up to eight persons. Known for its solid build and a spotless reputation for reliability, the Sienna quietly retains one other noteworthy quality: A strong resale value. A number of attractive features you won't find on most minivans, such as sliding-door windows that roll down and the option of all-wheel drive, serve to further the Sienna's appeal.

Toyota Sienna was good until it was not

2007 Toyota Sienna XLE

My Toyota Sienna XLE from summer 2007 was great for many years and reliable. In 2018, the tailgate no longer stays open on its own. It can fall moments after opening. The sliding door has a broken cable that is expensive to fix. Both of these issues were addressed by Toyota via a Warranty Extension by about 8 years. However, I did not have the problem then. I have it now. Pretty soon, it will be a two door car. Also, the handheld latch area for tailgate door leaves black tar-like substance on my hand. To replace that part is expensive too. To fix all the problems mentioned above is about $2,500. The car is not worth that much at this point. As of July 2019 I have approximately 135,000 miles. I was hoping to be one of those people who got 300,000 with their Toyota. One owner and on-time oil changes and maintenance. So, I'm a little disappointed that Toyota does not extend repairs for problems they have acknowledged.

Reliable 7 seater family van, 12 years and counting.

2007 Toyota Sienna CE

The Toyota Sienna I have had been very reliable, it's been used by my family for 12 years and it's still going. There are some problems with it however they may be due to age, the steering wheel/gear shift occasionally gets stuck after being parked, this can usually be fixed pretty quickly by turning the wheel back while on the break or by pressing the release button on the console. It is a very comfortable car, the seats are very nice and everything can be adjusted to your comfort. My Toyota Sienna had an automated door however it stopped working and we had to disconnect it so that it could be used manually. Overall it has been a very nice, reliable car and it's perfect for driving around the whole family or your entire group of friends.

My sienna has made me a minivan lover!

2007 Toyota Sienna

I love my minivan. My favorite feature is how many cup holders there are!! In the front alone, you have access to 8! It rides really smooth. It has been so reliable! The gas mileage of avg 22m/g is really not bad. Even though it has some age, it has held up well. One of the things that have stopped working is the buttons for the sliding doors. Neither on the key or inside the vehicle does it work. But that is just a bonus when it comes to vehicles for me, anyway. The emergency brake gave out last year. I love that you can remove whichever of the middle row of seats. This van has made me a lover of vans as a mom of two.
