Top 7 hottest Minivans

Here is the countdown to the top 7 best looking minivans of all time:

7. Toyota Alphard

This Japanese-market minivan was the inspiration for the new Toyota Sienna. It comes with a gasoline or hybrid powertrain, and is a common subject for tuners.

6. Buick Business MPV Concept

This high-tech concept first showed up at the 2009 Shanghai Auto Show. Intended to embody efficiency and serenity, it has a hybrid drive system, and the interior is awash in ambient blue lighting, with Earth and wood themes. Second-row captains’ chairs swivel 225 degrees to facilitate in-vehicle business meetings, and a power central console with deployable tablets moves between the second and third rows for laptop use. Suit and tie come separately.

5. Dodge Caravan Turbo I-4

Before it got a V-6 powerplant, the Dodge Caravan was briefly offered with a turbocharged 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine in the late 1980s. How cool is that?

4. Toyota Previa S/C

In order to compete with the likes of the V-6 Dodge Caravan, the mid-engined Toyota Previa’s 2.4-liter inline-four received a twin-screw supercharger. Later, the Previa was replaced by the Sienna.

3. Ford SHO-Star Concept

Ford’s answer to the beleaguering demands of its customers asking, “What would happen if you put the Taurus’ 220-horsepower V-6 in a Ford Windstar?” While it still may be a monstrosity on four wheels, at least it has a little more oomph than the standard minivan we always find ourselves stuck behind on our favorite roads.

2. One-Lap Honda Odyssey

Built by Honda Manufacturing of Alabama for participation in One Lap of America, this Odyssey made 400 horsepower, put to the ground via a six-speed manual transmission. In 2008, it finished 26th overall.

1. Renault Espace F1 Concept

The hottest minivan of them all. The Renault Espace F1 was essentially a carbon fiber Espace body, hiding a Formula 1, V-10 engine producing in excess of 800 horsepower. It shot from 0-60 in 2.8 seconds. It was created to honor the tenth anniversary of both the Espace MPV and Renault’s Formula 1 career.
