In 2018, we have seen some exciting new developments with minivans and whether you look at the Honda Odyssey, the Dodge Grand Caravan, the Chrysler Pacifica, the Kia Sedona or the Toyota Sienna, you have a lot of great choices in the 2018 lineup. We have done a thorough evaluation of some of the class leaders to help you take a glimpse at some of the best family vehicles of the year.
The complete redesigning of the 2018 Honda Odyssey made it one of the best family cars in the world, and we have only become increasingly convinced as we look at everything it has to offer. Even with this award, we can’t necessarily say it was a walk in the park. For example, when you compare it to the Chrysler Pacifica, you see how much of fight it put up with its pleasurable driving experience. The 2018 Honda Odessey has become a technological playground, and you have everything you want from enough room for eight people to sliding doors and storage nooks and cargo.
Dodge Grand Caravan
At one point, the Dodge Grand Caravan became the icon for a family hauling vehicle. What’s great about the 2018 model is how among some of the others, it’s one of the least expensive choices, and you can haul between eight or seven passengers. Meanwhile, the cargo capacity is good. If you want a vehicle with a great deal of technology, this may not be the best choice for you.
As far as minivans go, Toyota hopes with all its heart you will see their new vehicle as the upscale minivan with a little swagger. While the makeover actually began as early as last year, the new Sienna has everything you could want in a family vehicle. Since last year’s version, we have seen an improvement in the acceleration. The Toyota Sienna went from zero to 60 mph in 7.0 seconds flat, which is a 0.3-second improvement. This new vehicle also includes emergency braking, a lane-departure warning system and adaptive cruise control. You can also automatically steer the van into the lane needs, and this system includes a 3.0 multimedia interface. This system also has an upgraded stereo, and you have a dashboard navigation system to help you get through traffic. It all works out to help you get where you’re driving in style.
Do you want a car with a distinguished looking cockpit? If so, you may want to look at getting the Kia Sedona. You can take advantage of a plethora of features for the money. Meanwhile, the second-row seats look fairly versatile so that you can fit them up as needed. In some ways, the 2018 Kia Sedona looks and acts the same as the previous year. Meanwhile, its rivals have launched an all-out full-scale attack on building a brilliant new family-vehicle era. A minivan makes the most sense when you want to configure it. The most noteworthy thing about the Kia Sedona is probably its style. With what it’s been given, the Kia Sedona does well.
When we look at the Chrysler Pacifica, we rank it as one of the best of the year because of a long list of features and a well-built interior. In terms of performance, it delivers well for a van. The Chrysler Pacifica has a cabin filled with upscale materials, and the sound in the cabin remains silent even when you run it at the higher speeds. While only in the second year of its existence, you have plenty of modern technology and features for driver assistance. While it’s a great minivan, it falls short based on cargo space because you have smaller second and third-row seating. However, you don’t have much else that you could complain about. If you want a minivan with all-wheel drive, one of your only choices will be the Toyota Sienna because it uses an engine with greater power, and you have more cargo space than what you might get with the Pacifica. When you compare this car to the Honda Odyssey, you have a minivan that’s a little more fun to drive, but the performance of both these vehicles come close to each other, and they’re both solid no matter how you look at it.
Which one do we recommend you go with? That depends on your budget, desired features and needs. Both the Chrysler Pacifica and the Honda Odyssey are good choices, but they cost more than the 2018 Dodge Grand Caravan. Meanwhile, the Toyota Sienna makes a good choice if you want a minivan with all-wheel drive. You have to carefully consider your needs to help you to decide on the next best vehicle for you. Each one of these minivans will have something to offer people.
