As any van or SUV owner in the Indianapolis area would tell you, there are multiple benefits of owning and driving both. These two types of vehicles offer plenty of legroom as well as a good deal of storage space. Whether you’re hauling sports equipment, groceries, or family members, the team at Joe’s Auto Sales can help you find the vehicle that perfectly fits your family’s lifestyle.

Used Van or SUV: How to Choose the Family Vehicle

Benefits of a Used SUV

SUVs, also known as sport-utility vehicles, are a more modern, sporty alternative to a minivan or passenger van. They are still a very popular choice among middle-class families, as well as single-person households. While there are similar advantages between owning a used SUV and a used minivan, SUVs tend to offer these remarkable upsides:

  • Amazing horsepower
  • Towing and hauling capacity
  • Room for 7 passengers or more
  • Storage space
  • Great for off-road driving
  • Easy to handle in extreme weather

Benefits of a Used Van

Minivans have always been a favorite among families. They are a less expensive alternative to SUVs but offer many of the same advantages. At Joe’s Auto Sales, each of the minivans on our used sales lot has passed our service department’s 100-point checklist, as have all of our used vehicles. When you purchase a used minivan, you will enjoy these family-friendly advantages:

  • Lower gas mileage than an SUV
  • Easily accessible interiors
  • Typically priced lower than an SUV
  • Room for up to 7 passengers
  • Plenty of storage space
