SUVS vs Minivans

Do you have a growing family? If so, you will probably need to upgrade your current family car soon and purchase something that can hold everyone in it. That will typically leave you with two choices—an SUV or a minivan. Moreover, while SUVs have become increasingly popular in recent years due to the stigma that is sometimes attached to minivans, you should think long and hard before buying one over the other, as there are plenty of pros that come along with each. Let’s take a look at the advantages of buying SUVs and minivans.

The Case For SUVs

SUVS vs MinivansIf you have an active family that enjoys venturing out into the world and taking bikes, kayaks, and other equipment along with you, then an SUV might be the best option. SUVs are the perfect choice for those families that enjoy an adventure and plan on towing things around with them. They are also ideal for those who live in areas that deal with inclement weather. Most SUVs are equipped with four-wheel drive and other safety features that make dealing with bad weather much easier.

The Case for Minivans

Most minivans aren’t any better in the snow than the average car. However, that doesn’t mean you won’t enjoy lots of perks with a minivan. Outside of the fact that minivans are often more affordable than SUVs and get better gas mileage than them, they also usually have more cargo space in them. Believe it or not, U.S. News & World Report has also given minivans the nod over SUVs when it comes to seat comfort and interior refinement. So even though you might not necessarily want to take a minivan on a camping trip or a ride up to the mountains, you will find it to be very comfortable for your daily commute and family outings.

The truth is that only you can decide if an SUV or minivan is better for your family.
