Yes, currently, in this country. And I would pick that over a 7-passenger Tiggy if that was my only choice.

Lots of "SUVs" are on minivan platforms now anyway. Honda Pilot and Nissan Pathfinder come to mind. They just sacrifice utility for a truck-like look.

That is exactly my point. Same for the Sienna, it is the same underpinnings as a Highlander. I guess when you get to see under their skin regularly you see what they are really made of, and which one has more room inside and has the much more family friendly flat floors and sliding doors, foldaway seats, etc.
