Minivans vs. SUVs

Picking the next vehicle for your family means comparing a minivan vs. SUV. Which can best provide for you and your family? Take a look at the similarities and differences between the two and make your decision easier. While both can provide advanced safety and entertainment for your family, only one will have everything you’re looking for in a new family-friendly vehicle.

Benefits of a Minivan

When choosing a minivan, you’ll benefit from the low ground clearance that makes it easier to load up your luggage for a trip or the kids and their friends for their soccer game. The sliding doors open wider than on other vehicles allowing you to fit larger things. Fold-flat seating with a third row makes for more space for the passengers and your cargo. There’s also often tri-zone climate control, available rear entertainment, and you’ll receive better gas mileage and safety in models like the Honda Odyssey and more!

Benefits of an SUV

This best part of an SUV is that it’s capable. No matter if you’re driving the Ford Escape or Nissan Rogue, there will be features that’ll enhance your drive. Unlike sedans or hatchbacks, most SUVs offer all-wheel drive or 4-wheel drive, giving you better control in imperfect weather conditions or rough terrain. SUVs also tend to have a style that’s tougher than a minivan. There are also more choices in SUVs than minivans. Some of these options include:

  • Big or small
  • Gasoline
  • Hybrid
  • Diesel

Drawbacks of Minivans and SUVs

The main drawback of owning a minivan is that the only minivan to offer all-wheel drive is the Toyota Sienna. On the other hand, SUVs are more difficult to load up and can be more expensive than a minivan. While there are plenty of SUV options to choose from and they’re more stylish, minivans often offer more practical features.
