5 Best Used Minivans Under $20,000


The minivan gets a lot of undeserved shade thrown at it as if it’s a bad thing to offer lots of space for passengers, plenty of room for cargo, a comfy ride, easy maneuvering, and good fuel economy. In fact, most people who drive SUVs, especially 3-row SUVs, would probably be better served with minivans. But hey, it’s a free country, and that includes the freedom to be wrong. Fortunately, you’re free to ignore the illogicality and find a great deal on a lightly used minivan.

Here are five used minivan deals you can find on Autotrader for under $20,000.

1. 2019 Dodge Grand Caravan

2019 Dodge Grand Caravan

Although it’s no longer in production, the 2019 Dodge Grand Caravan remains a strong value, thanks in part to its low starting price when new. It’s not the fanciest or most technologically up-to-date vehicle on this list despite being the latest, but it’s a great low-cost family transporter. The 2019 model includes 3-zone climate control, a 6.5-inch touchscreen display, and Stow n’ Go seats, even in the most basic Grand Caravan SE trim. See 2019 Dodge Grand Caravan models for sale

2. 2017 Honda Odyssey

2017 Honda Odyssey

The 2017 Honda Odyssey is efficient, easy to drive, reliable, and safe, as you’d expect from a Honda. A built-in vacuum cleaner makes cleaning up kid-created messes a little easier, while standard active safety features like LaneWatch lane-keeping and forward collision warning with automatic braking help keep your family safe.

3. 2018 Kia Sedona

2018 Kia Sedona

With a more stylish air than many minivans, the 2018 Kia Sedona promises a smooth ride, strong safety ratings, and a great warranty on top of its passenger- and cargo-hauling capability. For maximum safety, look for models equipped with the optional surround-view monitor and automatic emergency braking. Other great options to keep an eye out for are heated, reclining second-row seats; a cooled glovebox; and an upgraded UVO infotainment system with a larger 8-inch touchscreen display.

4. 2015 Mazda5

2015 Mazda5

Also no longer in production, the 2015 Mazda5 was a bit of an oddball in the United States as it’s a compact minivan, capable of carrying up to six passengers and cargo in a much smaller footprint than a typical minivan. Despite its small exterior, the flexible interior makes it easy to carry gear in addition to passengers. There’s 44.4 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second-row seats — more than you’d get in a similarly-sized SUV. See 2015 Mazda5 models for sale

5. 2017 Toyota Sienna

2017 Toyota Sienna

The 2017 Toyota Sienna is, perhaps, the most obvious choice on this list, as it’s one of the best-selling minivans in the U.S. in any given year. Stellar reliability, plenty of power, lots of space for people and things, and a comfortable, well-appointed interior are all standard equipment. For 2017, Toyota upgraded the Sienna to a more powerful engine and 8-speed automatic transmission. Available all-wheel drive makes easier work of bad weather. See 2017 Toyota Sienna models for sale
