Top 10 SUVs and Minivans With the Most Cargo Space
These roomy and versatile models are available with flexible cargo areas and various seating configurations
Minivan or SUV? For years, consumers looking for the most cargo room had just one option: the minivan.
It may scream “soccer mom” to some people, but there is no denying that minivans provide abundant cargo room and low loading floors that make it easy to put everything inside. And those sliding side doors make getting boxes, bags, furniture—you name it!—in and out a breeze.
But hold on. That was then, and the midsized and large SUVs of today offer plenty of cargo room as well.
Second- and third-row seats that fold flat into the floor make it a snap to go from hauling passengers to carrying cargo. Plus, they all have standard or optional all-wheel drive, something only two minivans offer. Finally, SUVs often have a towing capacity of 5,000 pounds or more. Minivans top out at 3,500 pounds if they’re even rated to tow.
