The quintessential road-trip vehicle, Toyota's Sienna SE will make believers out of the minivan detractors among your golf foursomes or tailgating buddies. Actually, you can transport a couple of golfing foursomes, thanks to Sienna's seating for eight and nearly 40 cubic feet of cargo space behind the third-row seat.
Easily removable, the second-row split seat also has fold-down seatbacks, while the third-row seat folds flat into the floor.
Available in a number of model options, Bankrate chose the SE mainly because of its special sporty lower-body cladding. There are 12 cup holders, three 12-volt power outlets, a power rear hatch and power windows in the power-sliding side doors.
Sienna has plenty of go from its 266-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6. A six-speed automatic transmission transfers engine output to the front wheels. AWD is available.
