Searching for the highest-rated minivans with all-round good performance? These top 5 models for 2017 offer outstanding safety and infotainment features, fuel efficiency, and space for the family.
A minivan is more than a vehicle – it needs to be a rolling fort, complete with the latest entertainment features for the kids, the best hauling powers for all your vacation or work needs, as well as spacious comfort to transport the whole gang. As a bonus, since it’s often carrying more precious cargo than sporty little cars meant for partying with friends, it needs to offer the best safety features on the market.
With this criterion in mind, we’ve broken down a complete list of the best minivans for 2017 – and why they’re perfect for you.
