Top 5 Minivans You Can Buy

If you're in the market for a new minivan, then you'll want to read up on the winners of Cars.com's Ultimate Minivan Challenge.

Of the five minivans tested during the challenge, the 2015 Kia Sedona was named the top winner due to its great ride, excellent features, and second row of lounge chairs. The 2015 Toyota Sienna came in second, while the 2015 Honda Odyssey received third place.

The Ultimate Minivan Challenge examined five 2015 model minivans all under $50,000. Testing included a 135-mile course on various road types to test real-world MPG and testing by a family in the market for a new minivan to gauge things like cargo space and ride.

If you're in the market for a new minivan, I recommend TrueCar No Haggle and CarsDirect to see the best pre-negotiated prices in your local area.

3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum Money

The key to getting the best deal is to gather price or lease bids from as many local dealers as possible. Then shop that best price around until no one can beat it. Here are the steps:

Step 1 Get Prices From My Trusted Network

Select the vehicle you're interested in to see if there are local dealers in my network who will provide you with their best upfront price. You will get direct access to an internet sales manager who you can further negotiate with online (no need to visit dealership).

Step 2 Get Prices From TrueCar / CarsDirect

TrueCar, and CarsDirect are my top 2 online price quote recommendations. These services show you pre-negotiated prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually pretty decent. But remember, you can still negotiate further.
