Pros

  • Premium materials for everyday comfort
  • Powerful and efficient engine options
  • Many standard tech and safety features

Cons

  • Some rivals have thriftier hybrid engines
  • Third-row could have more legroom
  • Top trim levels can get expensive

Overall Assessment

Minivans have an unfair stigma of being less stylish than SUVs, and the Chrysler Pacifica puts this talking point to bed once and for all. From its sleek exterior styling to the well-built, upmarket interior, the Pacifica feels like a more expensive vehicle. The cabin remains quiet at highway speeds, and the suspension soaks up bumps. Interior occupants get standard amenities like Apple CarPlay and wireless internet access. Options include a dual-screen entertainment system and premium sound systems. In-cabin storage is amongst the best in the class, ensuring passengers always have a place to place their snacks and personal items. The pricey Pinnacle trim comes with quilted Nappa leather and other luxurious elements. Other hybrid vans get better fuel economy, but the Pacifica's expected 30 MPG combined would get few complaints. Overall, this is a great choice for shoppers seeking a modern and comfortable family vehicle that's a cut above most.

Overview

The Kia Carnival is unique on the market, a roomy and modern minivan with SUV-like utility and style. Dual sliding doors open to an eight-seat cabin with a fold-away third-row, optional power-reclining captain's chairs, and vast cargo space. It comes with Kia's impressive warranty and active safety features, providing peace of mind for busy families on the go. And go they will -- the standard 290-hp V6 engine is the most powerful in its class. The Kia Carnival is a 7-seater vehicle that comes in 5 trim levels. The most popular style is the LXS, which starts at $35,275 and comes with a 3.5L V6 engine and Front Wheel Drive. This Carnival is estimated to deliver 19 MPG in the city and 26 MPG on the highway.

Configure a new car

Pros

  • A blend of SUV and minivan attributes
  • Excellent interior and cargo space
  • User-friendly technology features
  • Available power-reclining second-row

Cons

  • Rivals provide better fuel economy
  • Base trims lack some active driver aids
  • All-wheel-drive is unavailable

Overall Assessment

The Kia Carnival is a great choice for minivan drivers who don't want to appear like they are driving a minivan. Kia's SUVs influence the exterior design, while the cabin feels surprisingly sporty, intimate, and un-van-like. Yet, Kia's 'multi-purpose vehicle' includes best-in-class passenger and cargo volume compared to other minivans. Though its front-wheel-drive platform lacks an SUV's ruggedness, a flat floor provides roominess most sport-utilities cannot match. And while its sole V6 engine choice is not the most economical one you can buy, it is quiet, very powerful, and even offers 3,500 lbs of towing. Kia stays competitive with rivals by including driver safety aids, impressive infotainment features, and class-leading warranty coverage. The Carnival is not for everyone, and some shoppers will prefer more conventional and affordable options. But it successfully bridges the gap between versatility, interior space, and style, breathing new life into the minivan segment.

Overview

Since hitting American shores two decades ago, the Honda Odyssey has been one of the most popular minivans on the market, offering a car-like ride and seating for up to eight. The Odyssey remains at the forefront of minivan tech, providing standard safety technology like automatic emergency braking, with available leather upholstery and a Blu-Ray entertainment system. Honda's acclaimed V6 engine has a reputation for reliability. The Honda Odyssey is a 8-seater vehicle that comes in 5 trim levels. The most popular style is the EX-L, which starts at $39,935 and comes with a 3.5L V6 engine and Front Wheel Drive. This Odyssey is estimated to deliver 19 MPG in the city and 28 MPG on the highway.

Configure a new car

Pros

  • Smooth powertrain with car-like handling
  • Many active and passive safety technologies
  • Family-friendly technology like Cabin Watch
  • Magic Slide seats add to configuration options

Cons

  • Lacks an available hybrid engine, all-wheel-drive
  • Underwhelming feature set on base LX trim
  • Desirable integrated vacuum has been nixed

Overall Assessment

The Honda Odyssey is an excellent option for minivan shoppers wanting the latest technology and driver safety equipment. Its configurable cabin allows parents to move seats around for better access to passengers or more cargo space. CabinWatch and CabinTalk technologies help those in front communicate with and monitor the back rows. The Odyssey is pricier than some of its rivals, with the top Elite trim retailing for nearly $50,000. But it has a comfortable ride, car-like handling, and user-friendly technology. Honda's 280-hp V6 provides silky-smooth power and reasonable fuel efficiency. All-wheel-drive and a hybrid engine are missing from the repertoire. Still, the Odyssey remains one of the smartest and most practical minivans available.

Overview

Skipping its rivals' fancy features, the Chrysler Voyager focuses on what is essential in family transportation -- space and comfort. For under $30,000, it delivers a smooth V6 powertrain, elegant styling, and a vast interior with novel storage solutions. Few minivans offer that kind of value for the money, let alone three-row SUVs. The Voyager lacks some nice-to-have features, but a refined interior makes it a serious contender for the price. The Chrysler Voyager is a 7-seater vehicle that comes in 2 trim levels. The most popular style is the L FWD, which starts at $29,355 and comes with a 3.6L V6 engine and Front Wheel Drive. This Voyager is estimated to deliver 19 MPG in the city and 28 MPG on the highway.

Configure a new car

Pros

  • Inexpensive starting price
  • Roomier than most three-row SUVs
  • Better fuel economy, too
  • Clever storage cubbies

Cons

  • Lacks a power-sliding door
  • Few standard driver safety aids
  • All-wheel-drive is not available

Overall Assessment

Those wanting the most interior space for their money will be hard-pressed to beat the Chrysler Voyager, one of the most inexpensive minivans available. The Voyager is essentially a less-luxurious version of Chrysler's premium Pacifica van, though the two models share the same powerful V6 engine and smooth ride. Cabin space is better than in most SUVs, with seating for seven and nifty storage cubbies. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are included. Families seeking a low-cost solution that still feels elegant will find a lot to like.

Overview

Minivans offer more cabin space and kid-friendly features than comparably-priced SUVs, and few better embody that value than the Kia Sedona. Its low starting price, dual power-sliding rear doors, seating for eight people, and long standard warranty period make it a great buy for growing families. Fun details include standard Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a third-row that folds into the floor. Minivan buyers will want to test-drive this Kia. The Kia Sedona is a 7-seater vehicle that comes in 3 trim levels. The most popular style is the LX, which starts at $31,575 and comes with a 3.3L V6 engine and Front Wheel Drive. This Sedona is estimated to deliver 18 MPG in the city and 24 MPG on the highway.

Configure a new car

Pros

  • Roomy and comfortable eight-passenger interior
  • Standard hands-free power-sliding rear doors
  • Low price and superb standard warranty length

Cons

  • Rivals offer more modern and functional interiors
  • Few driver safety aids included in base LX trim

Overall Assessment

For shoppers in the market for a budget-friendly minivan will appreciate the Kia Sedona. It comes with a powerful V6 engine that is smooth and easily hauls eight people and their stuff. The Sedona has the handsome exterior styling that gives it a sportier appeal than competitors, though the cabin is more conventional. Nonetheless, it’s roomy and comfortable, with easy-to-access controls and many standard features. The most impressive technology is in the expensive SX trim, the price of which dings the Sedona’s value proposition. However, drivers will appreciate the dual power-sliding doors, smartphone apps, and substantial warranty coverage that come standard with every new Sedona.

Overview

The Ford Transit Passenger Wagon is a commercial-grade vehicle for carrying 10 to 15 people in comfort. It's available in two dozen styles, with different body lengths and heights for your particular needs. Other large transport vans can't match the Transit's smooth and quiet ride, standard safety tech, and agile handling. Ford offers several upfit options for various industries, and removable seats allow it to double as a cargo van. The Ford Transit Passenger Wagon is a 10-seater vehicle that comes in 6 trim levels. The most popular style is the T-350 XL 148" Medium Roof RWD, which starts at $44,840 and comes with a 3.5L V6 engine and Rear Wheel Drive. This Transit Passenger Wagon is estimated to deliver 15 MPG in the city and 19 MPG on the highway.

Configure a new car

Pros

  • Smooth and quiet powertrain
  • Very maneuverable for its size
  • Standard driver safety features
  • Easy to configure for work or travel

Cons

  • Lacks rivals' lengthy warranty terms
  • High starting price
  • Limited off-road abilities
  • Few infotainment options

Overall Assessment

Full-size vans are a niche segment, catering to businesses and people needing extra passenger space over a minivan or SUV. These types of vehicles make great shuttles and work vehicles. The Ford Transit Passenger Wagon excels in its job duties, providing up to five seating rows. Its efficient powertrain offers plenty of muscle for hauling passengers and cargo. The Transit's refined interior and smooth ride put it at the top of its class. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard, as are driver-assistance systems uncommon in this segment. Some rivals have better off-road capabilities, lengthier warranties, and lower starting prices. But for those needing a well-rounded van that can carry 10-15 people with ease, few can match the Transit.

Overview

The Nissan NV Passenger is an expert people-hauler, with seating for up to 12 people. Its vast cabin offers dozens of seating configurations, providing more space than a minivan or SUV for shuttling passengers from one destination to the next. A heavy-duty platform gives the NV similar towing abilities to a pickup truck, and it can transform into a cargo van by removing the back seats. Some modern tech is missing, but the NV remains a value buy. The Nissan NV Passenger is a 12-seater vehicle that comes in 3 trim levels. The most popular style is the NV3500 HD SL V8, which starts at $45,105 and comes with a 5.6L V8 engine and Rear Wheel Drive.

Configure a new car

Pros

  • Plenty of space for people or cargo
  • Strong V8 engine with excellent towing
  • Straightforward driver controls
  • Low starting price

Cons

  • Only comes in one body size
  • Some rivals are more luxurious
  • Few tech features for the price

Overall Assessment

With its versatile interior providing seating for 12 in comfort, the Nissan NV Passenger works well as a hotel shuttle, taxi, bus, or family adventure vehicle. Its cabin can be configured in dozens of ways, allowing you to select the amount of space you need for people or cargo. Nissan is known for seating comfort, and the NV provides a relaxing environment for passengers to travel to their next destination. Unfortunately, some modern technology like Apple CarPlay and active safety assists are missing. The optional 5.6-liter V8 engine is quiet, smooth, and can tow up to 8,700 lbs. At the end of the day, the NV fits the bill for businesses and families needing maximum passenger space, but outdated technology limits its potential far beyond that.

Overview

Few vehicles have the passenger space of a full-size van, and the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Passenger Van provides seating for up to 15 people with the German brand's premium craftsmanship.

Gas and diesel engines are available, and the Sprinter offers rare amenities for a full-size van. The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Passenger Van comes in 2 trim levels. The most popular style is the 2500 Standard Roof I4 Gas 144" RWD, which starts at $45,995 and comes with a 2.0L I4 Turbo engine and Rear Wheel Drive.
