Interior Comparison Between Used SUV & Van Models

Whether you choose a quality pre-owned SUV or Van, you’ll enjoy additional room for passengers and cargo alike. If you don’t need a lot of extra room, you may find a small or crossover SUV to be a good choice. These typically seat up to 5 passengers with generous cargo space and versatility. Vans, on the other hand, are often available with two very different designs. Passenger vans range from the famed minivan to the larger vans capable of carrying many passengers. Cargo vans, however, typically offer seating for just two passengers with many sizes to accommodate diverse cargo needs beyond what an SUV can handle. Access to the rear seating in a passenger van is usually easier than an SUV. However, you’ll find that an SUV may offer greater ability to take your adventure off the beaten path than a van, and the larger SUV models are great for towing if you need to bring more along for the journey.

Performance Comparison Between Used SUV & Van Models

Since SUV and Van models span a wide range of sizes and capabilities, you’ll find exciting performance comes with either choice. While some vans are available with all-wheel drive or 4×4 options, a higher ground clearance on most SUV models allow them to overcome obstacles better than a van. Full-size SUV models typically come with powerful engines capable of towing similar weights as pickup trucks, though large cargo and passenger vans can also provide impressive towing capability. You’ll find superior fuel economy in many of the crossover and small SUV models, but many smaller vans also provide impressive fuel economy as well. Of course, the larger the vehicle, the more you’ll have to spend at the pump. Ultimately, the performance of your next used van or SUV is something you should really check out in person, so schedule a test drive at the Eddie Mercer Automotive Sales Center to learn more.
