Yes, that's right, I said minivan bargains. Recently, over 1.5 million (!) people watched Doug's review of the super-quirky mid-engined Toyota Previa. Around that same time, Fiat Chrysler loaned me a loaded Pacifica for a week. My anti-minivan sentiments were officially waning. So I was wondering: If you don't want to spend $30,000-50,000 for a new minivan, how cheap can you get a good used option?

Following up on the best sport compact bargains, the best V8 sedan bargains and the best convertible bargains, here are the very best minivan bargains found right here on Autotrader!

Toyota Sienna SE

I started with one of my favorites, the Sienna SE. Easily one of the sportiest-looking minivans on the market, the Sienna SE can actually be pretty quick. A chap called Dan Gardner modified a handful of Siennas for Toyota via his firm, DG-Spec. I got to ride around Willow Springs International Raceway in the "S-Tuned" model recently, and was quite impressed. And they're cheap, too. Want one with under 75,000 miles that's also less than five years old? Prepare to spend less than $20,000. Even a certified pre-owned 2016 SE is still under $30,000. That's a lot of reliable -- yet somewhat sporty -- Toyota van for the money.

Mazda5 Sport Manual

OK, so this one is more of a mini-minivan, but the Mazda5 came with a manual transmission. I say "came" because they stopped selling the Mazda5 in 2015, replaced in the Mazda lineup by a slew of really competent SUVs. Finding a manual may be a challenge, as I came across less than 25 nationwide on Autotrader. They're cheap, though: Nearly all are under $10,000, with most selling for less than $7,000.

Honda Odyssey Touring Elite

We saw Doug's take on the Odyssey Touring Elite, which is the best of the best minivans available from Honda. That one would cost you near $50,000. But what if your budget is more like $20,000? No worries: you should have no trouble finding 2013 Touring Elite (like the one pictured above) on Autotrader for around $18,000. That's an amazing amount of van for eighteen grand.

Chrysler Pacifica

Remember that Pacifica I mentioned I got to drive for a week? Well, it was amazing -- but it cost over $48,000, which isn't cheap. If you want something similar, but just a year older and without the fancy eHybrid system, check this out. You can get a Certified Pre-Owned Pacifica from a Chrysler dealer for just $26,568. Yes, just about half price.

Mercedes-Benz Metris

Wait, what? Did you know that Mercedes-Benz sold minivans? Sure, the Metris is a bit utilitarian compared to some, but get this ... it's cheap! Not like "cheap for a Mercedes," but actually inexpensive. You can get the smart-looking 2017 Metris Passenger pictured above with 25,200 miles for around $25,000 -- about half of what I would've expected.

Like most of these "best bargain" articles, I'm sure I missed some great minivan options, and also the Volkswagen Routan. Let me know some of your favorite options in the comments -- and, if you must, let me know all the ones I forgot. There's always round two.
