Minivans at the 2014 Chicago Auto Show
As recently as 2009, the minivan was thought to be on the endangered species list, but we’re happy to report the practical family hauler is plugging along due to its versatility and practicality.
Minivans make sense for families on the go. They offer seating for seven or eight passengers, easy-access sliding doors, ample cargo room and plenty of in-flight entertainment options. Oh, and they also carry the "soccer-mom curse," meaning that many thumb their noses at the mere thought of getting behind the wheel.
That’s unfortunate; minivans are relaxing and comfortable to drive. They afford great visibility and have so many seating and cargo configurations that they are often compared to Legos with wheels.
If you’re in the market for a minivan there’s never been a better time to buy as the rebates are strong as the competitors square off in a fight for market share.
You can find the following minivans on display at the 2014 Chicago Auto Show or at the Vehicles on Display section of the auto show Web site.
