Mini Van or Saburban?

I have a family of six, which one do you think would better fit our family? Or be the best buy? Why?

  • Mini-vans get better gas mileage and are a more comfortable ride.

  • I would probably go with the Suburban because I don't think I could drive a mini-van, but I know they eat gas terrible!

  • if you need 4 W drive then the suv... if you want to spend less and get better gas milage then the mini van --- they both have tv's!

  • Mini van! Check out the Toyota Sienna. We rented one on Vacation last year and could easily fit 8 people and all of the luggage!

  • Good question. DH and i need a new car soon but cant decided what to get. I know in our case a mini van will be cheaper and get better gas milliage but we live in CO and may need the 4 W drive so IDK good luck with your search.

  • I love my "cross over" Acadia. Mine holds 8, gets GREAT gas mileage and we had issues with the Sienna we had.
