2016 Toyota Sienna vs 2016 Chrysler Town & Country
We’ve said it many times before here on our website and on our blog, so it’s no secret – minivans have declined in popularity over the past several years. Many people who might be interested in a minivan have elected instead to go with crossovers, as they offer most of the same things that minivans do without the negative stigma coming from a minivans appearance. But there is at least one minivan on the market who has changed to fit the needs of the market, making what is in our opinion the most stylish van available. So stylish in fact, that it has been nicknamed the #SwaggerWagon. We thought we’d see how the Swagger Wagon measures up to one of its competitors, so we compared the 2016 Toyota Sienna vs 2016 Chrysler Town & Country.
Advantages of the 2016 Toyota Sienna
Looking at the table above, it becomes clear to see that cosmetic appearance isn’t the only aspect in which the 2016 Toyota Sienna stands out. The Swagger Wagon pulled out in front of each specification we looked at, and even if the advantage was a small one – like the extra 0.3 l/100km combined fuel efficiency – it was still there. In our opinion, that makes the Sienna the superior minivan. But let’s look closer at each of the other specs as well.
In terms of cargo capacity, the Sienna blew the Town & Country out of the water. In the standard cargo hold alone, behind the back seats that is, the Sienna offers an extra 6.1 cu. ft. of space to fit whatever you need to bring along with you. Drop all of those seats down and the Sienna offers an astounding 150 cu. ft., which is 6.2 cu. ft. of extra space. That might seem like a small number, but when it comes to cargo space ever extra cubic foot matters.
The 2016 Toyota Sienna also happens to be 277 pounds lighter than the Chrysler Town & Country, meaning it will be a bit more maneuverable and efficient. All of these small advantages combine with the more aesthetically-pleasing design and outstanding safety features synonymous with Toyota to create the perfect minivan.
