2016 Toyota Sienna vs 2016 Nissan Pathfinder
One of the last remaining pillars of excellence in the minivan segment, the 2016 Toyota Sienna has certainly earned its nickname the Swagger Wagon. With its stylish duds from bumper to bumper and surprising amount of power, it makes the ultimate family vehicle for any driver who also wants an enjoyable driving experience behind the wheel.
We’ve already compared the Swagger Wagon to all of the other remaining minivans on the market, so we thought we’d branch out and see how it measures up to other comparable vehicles, like a comparison between the 2016 Toyota Sienna vs 2016 Nissan Pathfinder, a midsize crossover
Advantages of the 2016 Toyota Sienna
One might assume that a midsize crossover would be bigger and more powerful than a minivan, but they’d be sadly mistaken in this case. Starting from the top of the table above, the Toyota Sienna actually offers a slight advantage in power by way of 6 extra horsepower and 5 extra pound-feet of torque. Neither of those would necessarily be extremely noticeable, but the slight boost in power does lead to a slightly more enjoyable driving experience.
As for space, the 2016 Toyota Sienna more than doubles what the Nissan Pathfinder offers in cargo capacity both behind the back seat and with all seats folded flat. Behind the Sienna’s back row rests 39.1 cu. ft. of space to fill with luggage or whatever you need to bring along, which is actually 23.1 cu. ft. more than the Pathfinder offers. And with the seats folded flat, that advantage increases to an extra 70.2 cu. ft. with 150.0 cu. ft. total max cargo capacity.
So with a slight boost in power and a massive advantage in space, the 2016 Toyota Sienna is the obvious choice between these two family vehicles.
