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.

This car’s boot is 240 cm long ⤢, 110 cm tall ↕, and 122 cm wide ↔.

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.
