Welcome to MySwissAlps! A mini-van/large family car is no problem on the Swiss roads. Several of those are available through www.easycar.com, from around € 1,500 per week. Just don't take a trailer too. That's inconvenient if you're not used to mountain roads, or even not allowed on some roads. Do make sure to read this page in our car section about how to drive in the mountains. Some roads can be challenging for first timers. Just take it easy, take breaks, and have the driver focus on the road, not the views.
Whether you actually save money by traveling by car depends on your plans. This page lists some of the costs, and ways to save money. You probably need a Swiss Half Fare Card anyway, unless you don't plan to go to the peaks by cable car.
