Best Minivans

Minivans are the best way to carry a lot of people and stuff. With versatile and accessible interiors plus carlike driving dynamics, today's minivans are the ultimate in family transportation.

1st
The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is our #1 minivan pick. It comes packed with all the latest technology, but its Ace in the hole is its plug-in hybrid powertrain that provides smooth and punchy acceleration and can travel an estimated 32 miles solely using electric power. The fuel savings plus the available tax credits make the Pacifica Hybrid potentially the best value in its class, too. Read full review about Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid
