USED MINIVAN For Sale in Nova Scotia
If you’re in the market for a used minivan, you’re making a good choice. Such models offer room for six, seven or eight, deliver excellent storage space and supply robust towing capabilities. Minivans just may be the best all-purpose vehicles on the market. We’ll examine seven models you’ll want to compare when shopping for a family hauler.
1. Dodge Grand Caravan: Canada’s homegrown Grand Caravan is perennially one of the top-selling minivans on the market. And for a good reason too: it offers great value, a wide variety of trims and excellent utility. Stow ‘n Go seating and the Grand Caravan go hand in hand — when you need to change your people hauler into a cargo carrier, both the second- and third-row seats fold flat into the floor. All Grand Caravans are powered by V6 engine paired with a six-speed automatic transmission.
2. Chrysler Town & Country:The Dodge’s sibling is the Chrysler Town & Country, sharing all the key attributes, but with a higher-end flair. Indeed, the Town & Country delivers a stronger level of standard features, more leather and higher-end technologies for families who demand it all. Like the Dodge, a 3.6-litre V6 engine powers the Town & Country, delivering 283 horsepower. Power is routed through the front wheels for a model with a 3,600-pound tow rating. The last year for this Chrysler was 2016, replaced by the all-new Pacifica in 2017.
3. Toyota Sienna: The Toyota Sienna along with the Honda Odyssey, are the top rivals for the Chrysler-Dodge duo. The Sienna also offers something no other current minivan offers: available all-wheel drive. You have to go back to 2004 to find the last all-wheel drive Grand Caravan and Town & Country models. The base Sienna is powered by a 2.7-litre four-cylinder engine, although most models have a 3.5-litre V6. Later models come with a pre-collision system. The Sienna hold seven or eight people, depending on the trim.
4. Honda Odyssey Underpinned by the same platform as the Honda Pilot, the Honda Odyssey minivan supplies room for seven or eight. All models come with a 3.5-liter V6 engine paired with either a five- or six-speed automatic transmission. The Odyssey comes with the latest technologies, including Pandora, Bluetooth, smartphone integration and a backup camera. A built-in vacuum cleaner system is included with the Touring Elite model.
5. Volkswagen Tiguan Built from 2009 to 2014, the Volkswagen Tiguan is a Chrysler minivan in disguise. Other than the distinctly Volkswagen front end, much of the design is familiar. The Routan does not have a couple of Chrysler favourites: stow ‘n go and swivel ‘n go seating. Engine choices parallel what Chrysler and Dodge offered at that time: three V6s, depending on model year.
6. Nissan Quest For nearly 25 years, the Quest was Nissan’s entry in the minivan segment. Discontinued in 2017, the Quest covers four generations. The most recent model comes with a 3.5-liter V6 engine paired with a continuously variable automatic transmission. Like competing models, the Quest features four doors including a pair of rear sliding doors. A liftgate provides access to the rear compartment.
7. Kia Sedona Although widely marketed as a multi-purpose vehicle, the Kia Sorento is every bit a minivan. This front-wheel drive model holds up to eight and comes with a 3.3-liter V6 engine making 276 horsepower paired with a six-speed automatic transmission.
All models come with an audio system with a CD player, auxiliary and USB input jacks, Bluetooth, satellite radio, keyless entry and alloy wheels.
