While minivan popularity has taken a backseat to three-row SUVs in recent years, there are still a long list of reasons why the minivan remains a top choice among parents, and why they aren't going away any time soon. In fact, new parents may try to avoid the minivan phenomenon for fear of becoming "those" parents, but once they cross over to the dark side, they nearly all say the same thing-the minivan is so worth it. Here's why.

Sliding doors

Maybe the single most ingenious minivan feature is the sliding doors. With the single push of a button, doors conveniently slide open, allowing passengers easy access to the car even if the neighboring car left very little space. In addition, you never need to worry about children swinging doors into neighboring cars, walls, or other obstructions. Combined with a low ride height, children are able to get in and out of the minivan on their own sooner than they would in a taller SUV.


Captain's Chairs

Most minivans offer second row captain's chairs, allowing passengers to easily walk-through to the third row. An added benefit is separation of space, keeping children from infringing on one another's personal space in the car.

Efficient Power

Today's minivans offer impressive engine options, offering plenty of power for transporting your entire crew, and their gear. Additionally, a number of fuel-sipping options allow price-conscious shoppers to get the most from every fill up.


Modern Technology

Bluetooth audio connectivity, DVD players, HDMI inputs, and USB ports keep every member of the family connected and entertained, while safety features like blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic detection, and rearview cameras, offer parents peace-of-mind.

Easy-to-Load Cargo Space

Let's face it - as a parent, we always have gear to load up. Whether it be a stroller, toys, groceries, luggage, or athletic gear, the minivan makes loading and unloading a breeze, thanks to the low ride height and hatchback cargo space.
