Most Efficient Minivans

Below are the top 10 most efficient minivans according to their city fuel consumption.

The most efficient minivan still uses quite a lot of fuel - 10.4 L/100km in the city. These vehicles are not very economical since they're heavy and large with fairly big engines.
None of these minivans are hybrids however they're the type of vehicle that would really benefit from hybrid technology (just as large and heavy SUV's have). The first hybrid minivans may be just around the corner.

Although the Toyota Sienna consumes the least fuel, the Honda Odyssey is impressive, having a larger more powerful engine and almost the same fuel economy.

TOYOTA SIENNA

The Toyota Sienna is the most efficient minivan. The new 2011 model is the third generation of this vehicle and for the first time a fuel efficient four cylinder engine is offered. Previously all engines have been six cylinder units.

The Toyota Sienna has managed to jump into top place in the economy ratings thanks to its 2.7 litre 187 horsepower four cylinder engine. Also helping the third generation Sienna's fuel efficiency is the new electric power steering which replaces the previous hydraulic system. Electric systems are more efficient because there is no belt driven hydraulic pump constantly running. Electric power steering only uses energy when assistance is required.
