2017 Chrysler Pacifica vs. Its Competition

2017 Chrysler Pacifica
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

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.

Quick Specs
8.3
The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica plays to all the traditional minivan strengths, while it strikes out in exciting new directions in styling and in plug-in hybrid technology.
6.2
The 2017 Ford Flex is a spacious family hauler with a style all its own. It lacks the fuel economy of some of the competitors, but beauty doesn't come without effort.
6.5
The 2017 Kia Sedona is a viable alternative to more popular vans that can cost much more. For less than $30,000 to start, it makes a strong case based on value.
4.0
The 2017 Nissan Quest lacks features compared to most and lacks adequate safety results compared to all. Try before you buy.
6.3
The 2017 Toyota Sienna is now more powerful, but its real strength is its capability and versatility.
8.0
The 2016 Honda Odyssey stands at the top of the minivan heap, with more design flair and more driving enjoyment than most other three-row rivals.
