CARS.COM — While minivans may get a lot of disrespect in popular culture, they remain perhaps the best use of space in a family vehicle, and the entire segment has undergone a huge makeover in the past two years. We tested them in 2015 as well, where the Kia Sedona edged the Toyota Sienna by a mere 4 points. This year, in our new Champions Versus Challenger format, we’re taking the newest minivan, Chrysler’s all-new Pacifica, and pitting it against the top two finishers from our Ultimate Minivan Challenge 2015.
