Toyota Sienna Camper
Toyota Sienna certainly is a big car! You can have a camping box behind the seats in the boot and a bed prepared on top of the seats (some DIY adjustments are needed). But, it does come with one of the lowest boot heights out of US minivans (5-10cm/2-5inches lower). It is one of the top cars in terms of size, but not in terms of consumption – it eats almost double of what a typical EU MPV does – you’ve been warned! No wonder, as it has a powerful 3.5 liter V6 engine that offers up to 296 horsepower, making it one of the most powerful minivans available.

Is Toyota Sienna reliable?
According to iSeecars.com, Toyota Sienna is one of the best-performing minivans out there in terms of their lifespan (how many miles does the car last with proper maintenance) – 240,000 miles for Sienna. This depends strongly on your driving style and keeping it regularly serviced of course, but with the Toyota Sienna, you have a good shot at the longest lifespan for a minivan (MPV). It is followed second by Honda Odyssey, or if you don’t mind something smaller, you can try the Toyota Prius, which will give you 250,000 miles of lifespan.
