Minivans Can Be Cool And Sophisticated

Minivans have always had a bad reputation, primarily because of the way they look, with a boxlike shape, having virtually no aerodynamic capability. They are considered to be boring vehicles, that are only used by soccer moms. But, there are many benefits of owning a minivan. First and foremost, they provide more interior room than most other vehicles, they have high storage capacities, and they are pretty comfortable. However, if you want to buy a sophisticated, high-performance vehicle, getting a minivan is probably not what you had in mind. This is understandable, since most minivans that have been made so far haven't offered anything more than mere practicality, but Honda and Chrysler are hoping that their latest minivans can change this.

2013 Chrysler Town And Country

This is definitely one of the most elegant and sophisticated minivans that have been made recently. It's one of the world's best-selling minivans, with an excellent interior featuring high-quality materials and a great infotainment system, as well as a powerful engine that provides amazing performances. It's powered by a 3.6-liter, V6 engine, producing 283 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, and it comes with a six-speed automatic transmission. Fuel economy is rated at 17 mpg/city and 25 mpg/highway, which is not great, but still good for a minivan.

As far as technology is concerned, it is equipped with a blind sport monitoring system, a rear-view back-up camera, multistage front airbags, as well as a rear park assist system. When it comes to in-car entertainment, the Chrysler Town and Country is one of the best in its class. It has a Blue-Ray/DVD system, featuring two nine-inch screens that flip down from the overhead console, along with an HDMI port and two USB ports. The heated leather seats and steering wheel add a touch of elegance and give you a sense of luxury.

2014 Honda Odyssey

The latest generation Honda Odyssey comes with a 3.5-liter,V6 engine, providing 248 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque, and it has a 6-speed automatic transmission, which means it's pretty similar to the Town and Country as far as performance is concerned. One of the most appealing features of the Odyssey is the infotainment system, with an 8-inch intelligent, multi-information screen, that connects to all of your car's systems. It provides you with performance statistics, you can read text messages on it, and it displays your USB audio interface.

In addition, there is the Rear Entertainment System, with a 16.2-inch screen, featuring HDMI technology. The Satellite-Linked Navigation System provides you with information on traffic conditions, so that you can avoid traffic congestion and choose the most convenient route to your destination.

To conclude, the Honda Odyssey and the Chrysler Town and Country are proof that minivans are cool and they may help improve the bad reputation minivans have had for a long time.
