Top Recommended Minivans

The minivan remains a practical, efficient and eminently comfortable way to transport people and the ever-expanding amount of stuff those people typically carry. And thanks to recent investment on the part of Chrysler and Kia, along with the continued updates to their Odyssey and Sienna by, respectively, Honda and Toyota, the minivan is once again relevant. The styling is freshened; in Chrysler’s all-new Pacifica, it might even be regarded as sporty. And the minivan’s expansive platform allows even more room for added comfort and – not incidentally – updated technology.

2016 Town & Country

2016 Chrysler Town & Country

Tucking a lavish array of equipment and a passel of luxury touches into a rapidly aging body yields the only premium-level minivan on the U.S.market.Largely identical in structure and mechanical elements to the Dodge Grand Caravan, the Chrysler Town & Country is priced higher but contains enough features to justify the added expense.

Despite its obsolete underpinnings, the Town & Country is the most luxurious, and perhaps the most flexible, minivan on the American road.

Both the Chrysler and Dodge minivans have a long history, having debuted for the 1984 model year.Each has been a popular item through the years; but those …

2016 Odyssey

2016 Honda Odyssey

The Honda Odyssey is the minivan to beat, if you consider design flair or driving pleasure.It is a bit long in the tooth, having last been redesigned for the 2011 model year, but it still ranks near the top of a small class.

Odyssey offers fuel economy that nearly matches that of a sedan.Honda's 3.5-liter V6 engine develops 248 horsepower and 250 pound-feet of torque, mating with a 6-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive.The Toyota Sienna is the only minivan that offers all-wheel drive.

Odyssey has plenty of reserve power to provide brisk passing, even when carrying a full load.It blends ride …

2016 Sienna

2016 Toyota Sienna

Toyota Sienna is roomy and handsome, one of few minivans remaining on the American market, and the only one that can be equipped with all-wheel drive.

Last redesigned for 2010, the Sienna got a freshening for the 2015 model year.Little has changed for 2016, except that the Entune infotainment system has added smartphone-driven navigation and Siri EyesFree.

Though scorned for years by critics as drab suburbanite transport, the minivan is the ultimate family vehicle.When weighing a purchase, all considerations typically fall by the wayside, except for one: will it convey seven or eight passengers safely and comfortably?

Seating seven or eight, depending …

2017 Pacifica

2017 Chrysler Pacifica

In the 1980s, minivans succeeded station wagons as the vehicle of choice to move families. The Chrysler Town & Country, Dodge Caravan, and Plymouth Voyager broke that ground, and Chrysler has owned the segment for most of its existence. Though still popular with practical types, minivans have been ceding ground to crossovers for a while, and after 30 years, minivan evolution has slowed, with only the occasional noteworthy feature like a built-in vacuum making headlines. The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is the next big idea in the segment. In fact, we think its plug-in hybrid powertrain is the biggest minivan …
