2013 Toyota Sienna SE
2013 Toyota Sienna SE
  • Price: $34,570
  • Macho factor: Aggressive styling and lots of cargo room with all seats in place
  • Gas mileage:
    • City - 18 mpg
    • Highway - 25 mpg

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.
