Minivans are in decline. Many major automakers have exited the segment, and even the survivors fail to outsell the leading crossover suvs. But minivans’ incredible space continues to make them desirable for many families. If only there were someone else to drive them around for you.
Well, thanks to modern self-driving features, today’s minivans can handle many driving tasks by themselves. Adaptive cruise control lets them accelerate and brake to match the car in front of them. Lane-keeping assistance turns the steering wheel in your hands to keep the van on course. Automatic emergency braking steps in for emergencies when a collision is imminent. Blind-spot monitoring looks over your shoulder to alert you if you’re going to change lanes or back up into the path of another vehicle. This isn’t full self-driving, true, but it means you have less to worry about when you’re behind the wheel. Your minivan is helping out. Here are the five best vans with self-driving features for 2022, sorted by price.
