7 Best Used Minivans Under $30,000

If you’re looking for family transportation with a budget of $30,000, you have a lot of good options to choose from. Modern minivans with features like active safety tech and fold-flat seats are perfect for families looking for the most practical vehicle for hauling people and cargo.

Here are the best used minivans you can find on Autotrader under $30,000.

1. 2017 Chrysler Pacifica

2017 Chrysler Pacifica Front Left Side in Black

The Chrysler Pacifica nameplate was reintroduced on an all-new minivan in 2017. It shot to the top of the minivan class with its stylish look, upscale interior, and family-friendly features. It also benefits from a strong standard V6 engine that’s powerful and efficient and the available Stow ‘n Go seating system that allows the second and third rows of seats to fold flat into the floor. Thanks to relatively quick depreciation, you can get a very nice used Pacifica in this price range. Find a Chrysler Pacifica for sale

2. 2020 Chrysler Voyager

2020 Chrysler Voyager Front Right Side in Blue

You may remember the old Plymouth Voyager minivan, but now the Voyager is back as a Chrysler. It’s mechanically very similar to the Chrysler Pacifica, but it’s more budget-friendly. That means you can already find a used model pretty easily for under $30,000. This is a good value choice if you’re looking for a used, modern minivan without many miles on it.

3. 2018 Dodge Grand Caravan

The Dodge Grand Caravan has long been a budget choice in minivans. This affordable van is easy to find on the used market at reasonable prices. Most Grand Caravan models from recent years have the Stow ‘n Go seating system, allowing you to switch from passenger van to cargo van quickly and easily without any tools. Under the hood is a tried and true V6 with good power and low running costs. Find a Dodge Grand Caravan for sale

4. 2018 Honda Odyssey

2018 Honda Odyssey Front in Red

The lower trims of the fifth-generation Honda Odyssey are becoming more common under the $30,000 mark. The Odyssey has unique styling that makes it look more interesting than the average minivan. If you get the EX trim or higher, you get the Honda Sensing safety tech suite, including automatic emergency braking, lane-keep assist, adaptive cruise control, and more.

5. 2017 Kia Sedona

2017 Kia Sedona Front Left Side in Black

Like most of the Kia lineup, the Sedona is a serious competitor against Japanese rivals, but at a more affordable price point. For the 2017 model year, more safety and infotainment tech features became available. It has a roomy and comfortable cabin for passengers, but cargo space is slightly tight compared to rivals.

6. 2016 Nissan Quest

2016 Nissan Quest Front Left Side in Maroon

Nissan isn’t in the minivan game anymore, but the newest version of the Quest is a good bargain on the used market. It has eye-catching styling and a pretty nice interior with comfortable seats. The ride is smooth and quiet, and the good reliability rating will give you peace of mind. However, it has less cargo space than most competitors. Find a Nissan Quest for sale

7. 2018 Toyota Sienna

2018 Toyota Sienna Front Left Side in Blue

2018 is a good year to begin your search for a Toyota Sienna because that’s when the Toyota Safety Sense system became standard, along with an updated Entune infotainment system. Modern tech features like automatic emergency braking, lane-keep assist, adaptive cruise control, and 5 USB ports, all standard on every trim. The Sienna also has lots of space and the reliability you’d expect from a Toyota. Find a Toyota Sienna for sale
