The Nissan Quest is no longer in the flexibility ballgame with the Chrysler minivans--and with the Kia Sedona taking the 2013 model year off, it's now the least reconfigurable minivan on the market.
That leaves plenty of options for savvy minivan buyers, starting with the trio of Chrysler minivans, which includes the Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan, as well as the badge-engineered VW Routan.
All share a V-6 engine and six-speed automatic; safety options differ, but crash scores are excellent and the third-row seat tucks away for a flatter load floor.
The Sienna has all-wheel drive on its options list, giving it a broader appeal, along with great safety scores.
Honda's Odyssey has a stylish appeal outside, and vast interior room, but to get Bluetooth and a six-speed automatic, you'll spend nearly $40,000.
