2019 Minivans

Minivans remain the most practical choice for families of all sizes, as they continue to offer unmatched utility in an efficient, easy-to-live-with package. Most minivans offer three rows of adult-sized seating that have been cleverly designed to maximize cargo capacity. What other vehicle can carry 7 or 8 adults in comfort? They may be boring, but nothing matches a minivan's utility. Most families with space needs beyond typical a sedan’s capacity opt for a crossover or SUV. Not the market it once was, a few key players continue to carry the minivan torch. But just because choices are limited doesn’t mean you shouldn’t buy one. Ask a parent, coach or really anyone who owns one and you’ll probably hear the same thing: there are times when a van just can’t be beat. Sliding doors, family-friendly features, and configurable seats really make them shine.

Pros and Cons of Minivans

Pros: SLIDING DOORS! Any parent will tell you that sliding doors make loading and unloading kids so much easier, as they don't have to worry about their kids dinging neighboring cars all the time. Sliding doors also make it way easier to install child seats. The large rectangular shape also makes sure all passengers, even in the third row, have ample headroom. When not carrying people, minivans also have enormous cargo capacities — who needs a truck? Minivans are full of family-friendly features and can hold 7 or 8 adults in comfort, even in the third row. Accessing the third row is also easy with second rows that often flip and slide forward. Minivans also have a ton of useful features like driver assistance technology, rear seat entertainment systems, automatic sliding doors, and hands-free trunks.

Cons: Minivans have an undeserved reputation for being "uncool." There's not a lot of choice in the minivan market currently, and at the top end, many can get quite expensive. Being so large, minivans are also not the most fuel efficient.

What's Available in Minivans?

There are currently only five minivans on sale today: The Honda Odyssey, Toyota Sienna, Kia Sedona, Dodge Grand Caravan, and Chrysler Pacifica.

Not to let Chrysler steal all the minivan spotlight, the Honda Odyssey has also been totally overhauled. Although it’s a bit bigger, the minivan sheds some weight and gains a new, more efficient transmission (with paddle shifters!), more technology and a new look. The most interesting feature is an optional vacuum in the trunk, which is so useful for getting rid of the crumbs and cheerios littering the floor. It also has seating for 7 or 8 depending on the trim you pick. The Dodge Grand Caravan is the most affordable minivan option and it offers a unique stow and go system for that hides the seats under the floor. Also, it still offers tailgate seating so your kids can look out the rear window!

What’s Coming for Minivans?

With so few players left in the minivan segment, not much else is expected in the near future, however, Volkswagen is said to be reviving its Microbus as an electric minivan, as previewed by the I.D. Buzz Concept. You can also expect the remaining automakers with minivans to make sure they are available with all the latest safety and driver assistance features and even more connectivity for busy families.
