The modern minivan arrived in the mid-1980s with the introduction of the Dodge Caravan and Plymouth Voyager twins. Unlike the old Volkswagen minibus favored by Deadheads and baby boomers, modern minivans use front-wheel drive for maximum efficiency and boast comfort and convenience features that rival those of high-end luxury sedans. The current crop of modern minivans includes the Chrysler Pacifica, Honda Odyssey, Kia Sedona, Nissan Quest and Toyota Sienna.
Anyone who needs to transport up to eight passengers and some cargo will appreciate the space efficiency that minivans provide. Compared to the traditional (and now rare) station wagon, the boxy shape of a minivan offers far more room inside, not to mention the tall cabin makes it far easier for kids and adults to get in and out. All modern minivans offer reconfigurable seats that can be moved around for optimal passenger comfort or stowed away for maximum cargo space.
All that room and versatility coupled with a pleasant driving demeanor, robust V6 power, and the availability of the latest high-end comfort and safety features make a modern minivan the go-to choice for savvy parents who couldn't care less about being labeled a "soccer mom" or "soccer dad".
