The best minivans you can buy in 2022 offer more features than ever before, with a level of versatility that may have been unthinkable in the past. Despite increasing competition from capable three-row SUVs, there could be some very good reasons to choose a minivan.

In addition to easier access for passengers and a usable third row, the latest minivans can offer good performance and fuel economy to boot. Whether you're shopping for a solid family-hauler or simply a spacious alternative to a crossover SUV, here are the best minivans you can buy in 2022.

See our guides for the best crossovers and best SUVs for some great alternatives.

Best Overall: 2022 Kia Carnival
2022 Kia Carnival

Why it's a top pick: The 2022 Kia Carnival has the best the brand is able to offer when it comes to technology, styling, and roominess. The model seats up to 8 passengers and has a versatile cabin, high-quality interior, and a variety of convenience features on higher-end models.

Worth knowing: Fuel economy is not the strong suit for the Carnival's 290-hp V6 engine with just 22 mpg in overall driving. There's no hybrid option or the ability to choose an all-wheel-drive configuration.

Honorable mentions: Toyota Sienna, Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid

Best Fuel Efficiency: 2022 Toyota Sienna

Why it's a top pick: The 2022 Toyota Sienna gets 36 mpg in overall driving, an impressive feat for a 245-hp minivan. All-wheel drive is available, and every Sienna comes standard with a wide variety of safety features. A surround-view monitor with a head-up display is available on the line-topping Platinum trim.

Worth knowing: Siennas tend to be bad vehicles to lease since Toyota's best deals are typically on their SUVs. Unlike certain competitors, the 2nd-row seats cannot be removed. Third-row passengers may not find the rear as spacious as competitors.

Honorable mentions: Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid
