It's best if you can buy a well-maintained Tokunbo Toyota Sienna 2012 because its condition is much better than a Naija used unit. However, prices of foreign used Toyota Sienna 2012 are much higher than their locally used counterparts.

Toyota Sienna 2012 fuel economy & performance

When it comes to engine performance, the Toyota Sienna 2012 doesn't do badly at all. All trims come with 3.5-liter V6 engine with 245 ib-feet of torque and 266 horsepower. The base and LE trims, however, come with an optional 2.7 liter inline 4 cylinder engine with 186 ib-feet of torque and 187 HP.

The V6 has more power and speed so if that's what you seek, any of the trims are good. This engine can go from 0 - 60 miles per hour in less than 8 seconds. But you also know this will tell on the fuel economy. The inline-4 engine has a rating of 25 miles per gallon on the highway and 19 mpg in the city, while the V6 has 24 mpg and 18 mpg on the highway and in the city respectively. So if you wish to save a bit more fuel (a norm with drivers that have a family), go for the 2.7-liter engine.
