One of the most popular minivans on the market, the Dodge Grand Caravan seats 7 people, gets a 17-25 mpg, and has a versatile cargo space that ranges between 33 and 143 cubic feet, depending on its fold-down seats.

The Nissan Quest offers a good EPA fuel economy rating of 20/27 mpg city/highway. Despite it being a minivan, test drivers describe this vehicle as quick and powerful, with strong brakes and a comfortable ride. The interior cabin has plenty of space for its passengers, though because the second and third row seats can only be folded flat, the cargo space is reported as smaller than usual, with 25.7 cubic feet behind the third row.
The Kia Sedona earns a typical 18/24 mpg city/highway. This minivan has luxurious materials in its interior cabin and boasts a sophisticated design and user-friendly controls. While there's plenty of leg room inside the Sedona for everyone, many drivers caution that the third row of seats best accommodates children and smaller adults. The 2015 Kia Sedona has 142 cubic feet of cargo space behind the front seats, 78.4 behind the second-row seats and 33.9 behind the third-row seats

The Ford Transit 350 seats 15 passengers and gets 14-19 mpg, which is pretty good for its class.

This van provides a slightly more comfortable ride with less 'truck-like" characteristics and more pleasant road manners.
