I was like every other mom when it came to finding a new car for our growing family: “I won’t drive a minivan.” PSSSHHHH!! So glad I saw the light and joined the minivan club! After researching every three row SUV out there, I was sold on the Chrysler Pacifica. I created a video showing all the features that had me sold on my van which I included at the bottom of this post, but if I had to narrow it down to just three reasons why I chose a minivan over a 3 row SUV, these would be it!
1. EXTRA SPACE
We looked at every three row SUV out there, and nothing compared to the space a minivan offers. If you have kids, you know how important that is! I can have all three rows up with kids in tow and still fit our double jogging stroller, huge Target haul (is there even such thing as a small Target haul??), a few 2x4s from our trip to Home Depot and still have extra space. There is even hidden storage under the floorboard in front of the seats!
2. AUTOMATIC SLIDING DOORS
This was the number one seller for me over an SUV. It has made getting my kids in and out of the car so much easier and less stressful. From getting infant carriers in and out to crazy wiggly toddlers, the sliding doors help tremendously! How many times have you struggled to get an infant carrier in a car after someone parked too close to you? Having sliding doors makes it easy peasy!
3. STOW ‘N GO SEATS
Being able to fold the seats into the floor with just the push of a button is a huge advantage over SUVs. The Chrysler Pacifica is unique in comparison to other minivans as it allows for both rows to fold into the floor which basically creates a truck bed in the back with the amount of storage it creates!
