So you have a large family. How do you tote everyone from place to place? The only real choices out there SUVs or minivans. But, which do you choose? There are several things to consider about both options, but if you are leaning toward a minivan, here are some perks to know that may make your decision easier.
Space: The main focus of the minivan design is space - for both passengers and cargo. For large families or even those that need extra space for carpool days, the minivan is a great choice. Most can fit over seven passengers, which beats most SUV competitors. Minivans also allow for excellent cargo space, which is ideal for vacations or even just shopping errands.
Safety: Compared to cars, minivans are built higher off the road. This means better visibility and the ability to better avoid debris that may be found on the road. This higher stance can even create higher confidence in drivers, which makes them drive better. All of these perks equal to greater safety for everyone on board.
One minivan that is worth checking out is the 2016 Honda Odyssey. This minivan has held its reign as one of the best minivans on the market for some time; the 2016 is no different. Fuel efficient is high, versatility is excellent and safety scores stand at the top.
In terms of space, you can’t find better than the Odyssey. Equipped with three rows, the amount of passenger room is impressive. While most vehicles with three rows provide a very cramped third row, the Odyssey squashes this problem with a second and third row that are above average in size; this is a definitely plus because no one gets gypped on head and legroom.
One feature worth noting can be found in the second-row seats. These seats are able to spread apart to create more shoulder room; they can also slide around in order to provide more third-row space.
Cargo space is excellent. With all seats in place, the Odyssey provides 38.4 cubic feet of cargo space behind third-row seats. The third row folds into the floor, which creates an even larger amount of storage room, measuring 93.1 cubic feet. With second and third-row seats removed/stowed, total cargo capacity reaches a huge 148.5 cubic feet.
The Odyssey houses many clever features that are designed to make life easier - and who can say no to that! To keep the interior clean, there’s a flip-up trash bag holder located inside the removable center console. There is even a cooling compartment to stash drinks - a definite perk for those with kids.
