The change of SUVs to smaller unibody builds and designs has brought us full circle when it comes to the minivan. Even though these vehicles have only been around for a short period of time compared to the entire automotive market, they are quickly disappearing from the market, but there are still some that make a great choice. The benefit to a minivan is the fact these vehicles are made for the family in a way no others are. Nothing else is made to handle every need you could have and give you added storage in places you might have not thought to put it.

Is a minivan the vehicle for you? If you need at least six comfortable seats the answer is yes. Even if you don’t need this many seats you might consider a minivan for your family to stretch out and have the features needed. These vehicles typically give you more space than a crossover SUV and comparable fuel mileage at a lower price to make them the right vehicles for the family, even as they are shrinking from the market. Here are a few great minivans that could be just right for your family to enjoy.

Kia SedonaFor 2016 the Sedona offers a new Technology Package on the eight passenger SX model to give you a better value than ever. This minivan offers an around view camera, adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist and many other great features to make it one of the best choices. This is not just a tech savvy vehicle but one that has developed a reputation for dependability and safety, which are two of the most important features for any family to make sure they not only get where they need to go, but are able to do so in a safe manner.

Toyota SiennaThe Sienna has lived at the top of the minivan list for a long time and is still one of the favorites of many families. This is a minivan that comes in a wide array of trims for you to enjoy the dependability and reliability that come with the Toyota name. Your price range will find a Sienna that fits right in which can be anywhere from a base model to one that has nearly luxury features for you and your family to enjoy in a quiet cabin that is perfect for lulling youngsters to sleep.

Honda OdysseyThe Odyssey has been considered the leader in the minivan category for many years. For 2016 this van is the oldest of these three, but that doesn’t make it one of the worst. This is a flexible vehicle that offers a large third row that has plenty of legroom for anyone to sit in the back. There is room across the second row for up to three car seats, which can be necessary when children come in groups through a multiple birth or because they are close in age. This minivan has the family in mind and is a great place for you to have the drive you need for your family to be kept safe, secure and comfortable.
