2019 Chrysler Pacifica starts at 530CAD/month tax. inc.
I love the Chrysler Pacifica. Personally, when I travel with my family, we go after a minivan and the first thing we look for is if there is any available among all Grand Caravans. In our most recent trip, we rented a 2018 Edition and the foldable (and disappearing seats) were really helpful to assist my brother-in-law moving his wedding's stuff. It was suddenly a van with only 2 front seats! Besides, the engine performance is way more than enough to push forward with no problem... so powerful! A Hybrid Edition is also available in Canada.
Last year, 6,185 units were sold in our country, making it the best year ever registered since the model was released. The popularity of the Pacifica is highly noticeable on the roads and very popular among families.
It can be leased in Canada starting at around 530CAD/month tax. inc. when leased for 60 months.
2019 Kia Sedona starts at 470CAD/month tax. inc.
The Sedona is an excellent bet from the Korean manufacturer. With 5,286 sales in Canada during 2017 and the best year ever registered, Kia & Hyundai continue growing among the North American audience and ranking among the most popular brands.
The 2019 Sedona can be leased starting at 470CAD/month tax. inc. when signed for 60 months and an average monthly insurance price of 50CAD. Very impressive!
2017 Mazda Mazda5 starts at 450CAD/month tax. inc. (discontinued production)
And finally the Mazda5, a vehicle that has been discontinued from production for 2018, but there are still a bunch available that you could find around. During 2017, Mazda Canada sold 2,224 units, and none in the U.S. as the vehicle was retired from the market last year and it is still only available in Canada.
It can be leased when signed for 36 months at around 450CAD/month tax. inc. and insurance costs are around the 90CAD per month.
Consider SUVs Too
Minivans are great, but not the only option. My main suggestion is that you go and test them. Go and bring these home, go to the dealer with your kids and have fun testing your options. Following, a list of related articles that may be of your interest and improve your search:
