The Sienna was lauded for its respectable fuel economy ratings, strong on-road performance, and comfortable seating arrangement. The same continues with the forthcoming Sienna for 2016. Admittedly, though, is the fact that most users of the previous Sienna often complained about the hard, cheap-feeling plastics and odd dash design. Some of the issues were rectified in the 2015 model and hopefully, all should be addressed in the 2016 model before its debut.

The 2016 model, judging from the spy pics we have of the minivan, is set to come with an updated front and aft exterior styling that will catapult its position in its segment which has now started experiencing a fierce battle for survival. The segment also offers other worthy alternatives to the Sienna in case you are turned off by any of its features. They include Kia Sedona, Honda Odyssey, Nissan Quest, and Dodge Grand Caravan.
