2014's best people haulers

Toyota Sienna LE

Price: $31,350
Mileage: 18 mpg city/25 highway/21 combined
CR Score: 80
Third-Row Legroom: 36.3 in.

Let's start with the most affordable of our favorites, the Sienna minivan. It also ranks toward the top in Consumer Report's testing and has the second-best third-row legroom. LE versions can be equipped to seat seven or eight, and the third-row seat folds flat into the cargo floor when not in use. We really like the 40/20/40 split second-row seat with a center section that slides forward, close to the front seats, to more easily attend to smaller children. With the LE trim, you get power sliding side doors and power rear liftgate, triple-zone automatic climate control and a 3.5-inch infotainment display. Every Sienna has a 266-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 and six-speed automatic transmission.
