Today I am going to share with you the most useful, practical and one of the safiest vehicles. The minivan. Yes… I know this car is not everybodies first choice, but everybody will have to own one of them when life changes. It started out in America with the introduction in 1984 with the Dodger Caravan, and became a huge hit in the late 90’s era. In 1999, every mainstream company had their own minivan and this segment became really popular. However in the late 2000’s, companies decided to kill their minivans due to slow sales. Which lead to people switching over to three row crossovers.
The reason why these minivans still on the market however, is because there are people that need to haul a lot of people while putting all the sports equipment in the back seat. In a normal three row crossover, you just cannot do that because there is not enough room behind the third row. The other reason why a minivan has an advantage is because of how much passenger space there is. Unless your 7 feet tall or have a very large stature, you will never have to worry about feeling cramped in the back seat of a minivan. If you get higher trim levels, you also have automatic sliding doors, which is a great feature when you have a ton of groceries and you just do not have room to open the doors for others. When you go for the ultra high trims, there are options such as a double sunroof and dvd players, having a double sunroof helps with motion sickness and clearing the air out in the back seats, and the dvd players are perfect for long road trips.
Now there are only 5 minivans standing, the Chrysler Pacifica, Dodge Grand Caravan, Honda Odyssey, Kia Sedona and Toyota Sienna. I actually own a Toyota Sienna and heres why I picked this one specifically. The Sienna is the only minivan available with all wheel drive, which is great for the snow. A fully-loaded Sienna also has some small little details that most minivans do not have, such as 12 cupholders, ultra bright headlamps, and a three mode backup camera.
These are the reasons why you all should enjoy minivans. And stay tuned for many more posts!
