Reasons Why Minivans are Still In

There’s nothing mini when it comes to the reasons why minivans continue to dominate the automotive market. These vehicles offer a selection of features and capabilities that you won’t find in other types of vehicles. In this guide, we at Fred Beans will give you just a taste of what makes minivans so desirable. Shoppers in Philadelphia, Doylestown, Mechanicsburg, and Flemington should read ahead to get started!

  1. They Can Fit the Whole Family and then Some.

Toyota SiennaMinivans are most well-known for their non-traditional seating arrangements. Minivans provide seating for more than five passengers—typically between seven and eight passengers total. That’s plenty of room for the whole family with space to spare.

Additionally, minivans are designed to provide an extended amount of wiggle room for passengers. So, you’ll be able to fit passengers of all shapes and sizes in any row.

  1. They Have an Expansive Amount of Cargo Space.

On top of all the passenger space that you’ll get inside a minivan, you’ll also have plenty of room for all of your cargo. Most minivans offer 100+ total cubic feet of cargo space with the seats folded meaning you’ll be able to fit just about any suitcase, box of belongings, small furniture item, or even outdoor toy inside the vehicle with plenty of room left over.

  1. They’re Versatile Beyond Compare.

Chrysler Pacifica SpaceThanks to their large amounts of cargo space, minivans are able to handle any type of adventure you throw at them. Pack them with all kinds of stuff with room to space including:

  • A dozen or two boxes filled with stuff for moving across town
  • All of your supplies for a weekend camping trip
  • Up to 100 boxes of Girl Scout cookies
  • A double mattress or two
  • All kinds of athletic equipment like snowboards, hockey gear, and more

No matter what you’re hauling, it’s more than likely going to vit inside a minivan regardless of which one you choose.

  1. They Get More Fuel Efficient by the Model Year.

While minivans are large vehicles, they’re normally equipped with sturdy engines that focus on fuel economy. Additionally, hybrid technology is now available for certain minivan models. Hybrid vehicles can often offer twice as many miles per gallon or more which can take you twice as far as a regular tank of gas. On top of that, these large vehicles come equipped with some big fuel tanks so you won’t need to stop as often to fuel up.

Thinking About Making Your Next Car a Minivan?

As you can see, there are plenty of reasons to consider making your next vehicle a minivan. Not only are they spacious and comfortable, they’re also versatile and can accommodate any kind of adventure including camping trips, moving jobs, family road trips across the state, and much more.

At Fred Beans, we have a variety of minivans for you to browse and consider, each with its own unique lineup of features and capabilities. Shoppers in Philadelphia, Doylestown, Mechanicsburg, and Flemington can get started today by browsing our inventory right on our website!
