I’ve always said when I was younger that I would never own a MiniVan.
Because I could never see myself driving one. I mean I knew I’d always have enough kids to make one worthwhile but I just neve really liked the way the looked. Or how they drove. Or anything else about them. But times change. I see myself leaning between an SUV and MiniVan.
Why would I prefer an SUV over a MiniVan?
Well, first of all, it’s the whole “moms drive minivans” thing. That’s not me. Yes, my sons have played games including soccer so we’ve needed the room a time or 2 but my car has taken care of that. Also, I would lose all my things in every single seat of that minivan. Extra seats mean extra room for me to store all my stuff.
An SUV seems more like me. Yes, I would love to get an SUV with more seats however, 5 seats would suit us if the car is bigger. An SUV like a Honda Pilot from Bosak Honda would give me the option to have a 5 seat car but also the ability to upgrade to 8 seats if needed. And would you look at this SUV? It looks so much more sexy than a minivan.
Despite all this, I am warming up to the idea of a minivan.
A minivan is more spacious and does have better gas mileage. And now, minivans have more things that work with a family and don’t look like a big box. I think they would be more comfortable for travel for us as a family… mainly because Hayden could have the whole back for himself. I worry about storage for those, though.
I also worry about the storage space for the SUV as well. If I were to get one with an extra row, would I have enough space in the back for travel? Or would Hayden be crowded in the back row with suitcases and a pack-n-play. I mean it wouldn’t bother me but I’m sure Hayden wouldn’t like it.
I have a decision to make but thankfully, I have some time before I need to make it. If you had to make the choice, what would you choose?
