Fewer Gas Stops Means More Time at Your Vacation Destination

Minivans are not known for returning the best gas mileage. In fact, many SUVs – even those with three rows – earn better EPA-estimated fuel economy. However, some people prefer minivans due to features like accommodating third-row seats, convenient sliding side doors, and abundant cargo capacity. Oftentimes, minivans also get you more for your money when compared to SUVs.

If you’re shopping for a minivan, it’s important to consider each model’s combined fuel economy. Moreover, the EPA’s figures for each vehicle’s highway and city consumption are especially important – whether you do most of your driving locally, or take plenty of long road trips. Finally, annual fuel cost is a major factor when you’re determining a vehicle’s overall cost to own.

On the following pages, we include notable information about every minivan on the market today. Additionally, we provide each minivan’s EPA-estimated combined fuel economy, city and highway mpg figures, and annual fuel cost. We use this data to rank the minivans from worst to best fuel economy. In the case of a tie, we give the win to the vehicle with the lower starting price and higher U.S. News score.

Keep in mind that our individual vehicle scores and rankings change on a continuous basis due to new incoming data and expert research. For this reason, the scores in this article may not match up with the scores in our new car rankings.
