#4: 2015 Toyota Sienna
Okay, despite what we just said about minivans not being very sexy and stylish (duh), minivans are still an excellent option for growing families for several readily apparent reasons – they’re big, they’re safe, and they get the job done. And few minivans get those jobs done better than the Toyota Sienna, which has also been on the roads since 1997. The Sienna is always rated at the top of the list for minivans, and its reputation is well-deserved.
The 2015 Toyota Sienna is another in a long line of excellent production Siennas, and if you’re family is rapidly growing, it’s hard to find a much better option for mom, dad, and a bunch of kids. This minivan starts at just under $30k, making it reasonably priced, and a great value buy. The Sienna might not be the sexiest car on the road, but it is a lot sleeker and better-looking than the dreaded minivans you may picture. The car features excellent interiors as well, which helps you feel a little more classy.
The Sienna also has a bevy of nice features, such as electronic power doors, a two-wheel or 4-wheel option on every car, and pretty good miles per gallon for such a large car. If you’re planning to go the minivan route to accommodate your growing family, look no further than the 2015 Toyota Sienna.
