Here Are the Top Contenders From the U.S. News Best Minivans for Families Awards

The minivan is the quintessential family vehicle, yet there is a lot of variety in this small class to satisfy different tastes and budgets. Value and quality are among the most important factors to consider in the purchase of a new minivan, which is why these two qualities drive our rankings. We also consider safety (in terms of crash test results and safety features), technology, and family-friendly features in our minivan rankings.

Our list of the top minivans for families was compiled using the U.S. News award methodology, which considers feedback from expert automotive reviewers, safety and reliability ratings, passenger space and cargo volume, and the availability of desirable family-friendly features. The vehicle with the highest composite score is named the Best Car for Families in each of 11 categories. Please remember that the scores on our site are updated constantly as new expert reviews and data become available, which means the scores mentioned in this list may not match the scores in our reviews.

Keep in mind that we update our scores often as new expert reviews and data become available, so the scores in this slideshow may not match the scores in our rankings.
