The minivan has never been more unpopular. It guzzles gas, its bulky, and it rarely offers the in-car comfort you would expect.
So if you want to sell your car and get a superior machine for your next family trip now’s the time to do it. Here is a selection of the best family cars; no minivans included.
The Nissan Pathfinder is quickly becoming a favorite alternative to the minivan. The main reason is it comes with a great fuel economy, with up to 27 miles per gallon on the highway.
This is an SUV and it provides a roomy interior with three rows of seating. Despite the outward appearance, there’s a lot of cargo space inside. You’ll also find all the modern in-car technology you need.
What I also love about the Pathfinder is that it’s much cheaper than a lot of other cars in its class.
The Audi Q7 is one of the best family vehicles on the market today for ease of driving. It comes with a comfortable interior that embraces what the modern driver expects.
It’s not a cheap car, but the high level of road manners more than makes up for it. Parents will also be pleased to know that it was rated as the top safety pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. And the driver-assist features reinforce that.
2016 Ford Explorer
The Ford Explorer has aged well, as most Ford vehicles do. At first glance, it looks like a premium Range Rover, but the Ford Explorer is a fraction of the cost.
You get to enjoy the chic design of the overpriced Range Rover, along with most of its technological advancements. The inside cabin is spacious and there’s a third row of seats that can easily fold out when necessary.
Or if you’re just a family that needs power, the Ecoboost V6 engine has you covered!
2016 Honda Pilot
The 2016 Honda Pilot is a top alternative to the minivan because it has the space of the minivan without the hassle. You’ll get to enjoy the storage compartments positioned throughout the entire car while you sink into the comfortable seats.
It’s always a smooth ride with the 2016 Pilot. And with the driver safety aids, it managed to acquire a top safety rating.
“Everyone’s first car is now their last car with this beauty”.
Jeep Grand Cherokee
Are you looking for something brawny and rugged? Then the Jeep Grand Cherokee should be on your list. Yes, it only has two rows of seats, but it does come with a huge amount of cargo space.
It also has Uconnect, which is one of the top infotainment systems in the world. It’s distinguishable from the awful minivans on the market today and it’s more than capable of tackling any terrain.
Last Word – Finding the Best Minivan Alternative
These five vehicles provide you with the best minivan alternatives on the market today. They’re capable of tackling any terrain and can match the seating and the cargo space of a minivan.
They also come with all the modern driver aids you expect and many of them are cheaper than what a minivan would cost you in 2019.
