Minivans usually mean families, and families usually mean limited budgets. If the cabin’s going to fill up with half-eaten Cheerios and upturned juice boxes, it makes little sense to buy an expensive car, right? What we need most is practicality and safety.
As it happens, the minivan world is in a changeable state at the moment, with some being discontinued and others morphing into new generations. This might work in a buyer’s favor, throwing up the chance to negotiate a sweet deal. “Cheapest” is also a relative term here. It’s possible to spend $40,000 on a new minivan, but the ones in this list are the more affordable entry level models. Prices include destination charges.
