Need a family-friendly vehicle with lots of cargo space? Have you thought about looking at pre-owned minivans? Although a lower sticker price can certainly be attractive, buying used won’t just save you money upfront. It’ll also help you avoid the massive depreciation a new minivan would experience in the first five years of ownership.

If you’re interested in getting a pre-owned minivan, here are our top picks for best used minivans in 2022.

Honda Odyssey

For more than 25 years, Honda’s Odyssey minivan has been a leading choice for families of all sizes. It features seven to eight seats, depending on the year, as well as cupholders in every row.

Models manufactured from 2017 to 2021 feature a 60/40-split folding third-row seat, as well as standard, modern tech, and an elegant, streamlined design. Whether you’re on carpool duty, have several kids of your own, or simply haul a lot of stuff, you’ll have the space you need to haul it all with this van. 

Keep in mind, too, that Honda has long been a highly reliable, consumer favorite. That means you’ll easily be able to get your hands on discounted, used auto parts if you’re trying to save on long-term maintenance and repair costs. Buying quality, used car parts can save you hundreds, possibly even thousands, of dollars over the cost of purchasing new.

Toyota Sienna

Another highly reliable, consumer favorite, the Toyota Sienna, is an excellent choice if you’re looking for a plethora of comfort features and space on the road. Models manufactured from 2017 to 2021 seat seven to eight passengers, have cupholders in every row, and boast three-zone climate control.

If you’re the outdoorsy type (or if you want more peace of mind on our slippery winter roads), the Sienna has an all-wheel-drive option.

All models from 2017 to 2021 also come with:

●        Adaptive cruise control

●        Seven-inch touchscreen (the 2021 bumped it up to nine)

●        Five USB ports (seven in the 2021)

●        Rearview camera

●        Amazon Alexa voice assistance (2019 and onward)

Chrysler Pacifica

Prefer something manufactured in the U.S.? Then the 2017–2021 Chrysler Pacifica is a great choice. It seats seven or eight, depending on the trim, and is equipped with plenty of modern comfort and tech features. Behind the third row, you’ll find roughly 32 cubic feet of fixed storage to accommodate just about anything you or your family needs to haul.

Standard features you can expect to see on 2017–2021 Pacificas include:

●        Rearview camera

●        60/40-split third-row folding seat

●        Seven-inch touchscreen control display (2018 onward)

●        Three-zone climate control

Need room to haul stuff but don’t need quite as much room as a minivan has? Then a hatchback might be more in line with what you’re looking for. Check out Best Used Cars 2022: Hatchbacks for a few of our top picks!
