Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford Transit Connect will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota Sienna.

Convenience
With the Toyota Sienna, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Ford Transit Connect, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Clearly, the Ford Transit Connect is a better financial choice over the Toyota Sienna, when considering MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Ford Transit Connect is much higher than that for the Toyota Sienna.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Transit Connect is much slimmer than the Toyota Sienna, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Ford Transit Connect, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Toyota Sienna.

Handling
The Ford Transit Connect has a larger turning radius than the Toyota Sienna, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Toyota Sienna is clearly the choice over the Ford Transit Connect for pulling heavy loads. The Ford Transit Connect has a little less horsepower than the Toyota Sienna.

Powertrain
With its lower torque engine, the Ford Transit Connect doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Toyota Sienna.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Ford Transit Connect seats a lot fewer people than the Toyota Sienna. With the Ford Transit Connect, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Toyota Sienna.

Warranty
The Ford Transit Connect comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Sienna.
