Add in a stroller, diaper bag, purse, groceries etc and even a van can become full quickly especially in the winter when there are bulky clothing.
I have a caravan with sto n go storage and I love it.

Our main reasons are:
1. Safety - The back seat in a minivan is safer than the one in a crossover. Minivans are one of the safest vehicles that you can buy.
2. Storage - More room to store baby gear in the back even with the 3rd row in (the back has a big bucket area in addition the the room behind the seat)
3. Gas mileage is way better
4. No side door to swing open = less chance of damaging our vehicle or someone elses (imagine once the kids can open it). Also, the side door on both sides is a plus.
It just makes sense to us, despite the minivan stigma.

We bought our 08 chevy suburban with 70,000 kms on it for $30,000. If you really shop around you *can* find a great deal. If you're in a hurry, then you'll most likely end up paying more.
Oh and, once upon a time I had an 06 Chrysler Town & country. It was pretty good for when the twins were first born in their bucket infant seats but I wouldn't ever have put one of them in the back row. It was much too close to the rear and I feared in the event of an rear end collision that they would have died. That seat was also quite flimsy and uncomfortable and it really had ZERO space compared to the suburban we have now. Add to that, that it was a stinkin' minivan and looked like an old man car...shudder. I hated it. Would I ever buy a minivan again? No, defintely not. It's not my style and they appear less safe then a full sized SUV to me. I'd rather get plowed into in my suburban then that piece minivan.
