If you're thinking about minivans, you probably consider the usual suspects: the Toyota Sienna and the Honda Odyssey, of course -- but also maybe the Kia Sedona and the Chrysler Pacifica, which are a little less common. But you probably don't think of the cheapest van.

The cheapest minivan in North America is the Ford Transit Connect, which is, indeed, a minivan. The original Transit Connect was primarily offered solely as a cargo van, though there was a rare passenger version -- but the newer model is more common as a passenger van. And it is, indeed, the cheapest minivan in America.

Indeed, the passenger version of the Transit Connect -- dubbed the "Wagon," as opposed to the cargo version, which is called the "Van" -- starts from $26,845 before shipping, which just undercuts the Kia Sedona's starting price of $27,200 before shipping. The Honda Odyssey and the Toyota Sienna both start around $31,000 before shipping, pricing them far higher than the Transit Connect.

Of course, there are reasons why the Transit Connect is pretty cheap -- like, for instance, its size: the Transit Connect was designed to be a small cargo van first and foremost and a passenger van second, so it's more than a foot shorter than the Honda Odyssey and six inches narrower. The result is less passenger room, which, of course, is the primary goal for a minivan.

Still, the Transit Connect is available for drivers who want a new minivan as cheaply as possible -- and while it may not be the best van on the market, it's a bargain if you're looking to haul a few passengers on a tight budget. Find a Ford Transit Connect for sale
