Sienna Crash Test vs. Grand Caravan Crash Test

Both of these minivans get okay crash test scores from IIHS and NHTSA, but the Sienna is better. In the IIHS small front overlap test the Sienna scores an “Acceptable” rating and the Grand Caravan scores “Poor”. The NTHSA also gives the Sienna a 5 star driver front crash score compared to the Grand Caravan's 4 star score in the same test. IIHS also notes that the Sienna offers more advanced accident avoidance systems, like adaptive cruise control and forward collision warning, which the Grand Caravan does not.

Sienna Space vs. Grand Caravan Space

Of course, safety is a big concern in a family vehicle, but so is space; the Sienna is bigger inside. Toyota gives you about 1 extra cubic foot of passenger room, and more than 6 cubic feet of extra cargo space behind the seats. The Sienna uses that extra passenger space to give you more headroom and hip room in every row, and more than 4” more legroom in the 3rd row.
