Minivans are family wagons first, cargo haulers second, but the best of them perform both duties at the flip of a seat.
Both the Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna have great crash-test scores and big-screen DVD entertainment systems, but neither has a fold-away second-row seat.
The Nissan Quest can't hold as much cargo because of its odd shape and size, as well as seats that don't fold away into the floor, but it handles quite well.
Finally, there's the Kia Sedona, which was new for 2015; it's a heavy-handling minivan with a somewhat flexible sliding-seat system and lots of luxury touches and good crash-test scores, and it's no longer the bargain it once was.
