This is literally a mini-mini-van. It's legally a station wagon but is set up like a mini-van. It is surprisingly versatile with the back seats folding all flat to make a large cargo space or up to hold 6 people very comfortably. We are surprised how much stuff fits in it and how much space we have. Lots of little features that I like such as a fold-out center console for the center seats. It is the very definition of "right sized" for our family.

Great car---3 rows of seats, with hidden storager. I average 27 MPG in the city. This "active llifestyle vehicle" turns on a dime for easy parking. You can change from auto to manual. The backdoors slide for great garage parking. Additional radio control bottons on sterring wheel means you never have to take your eyes of the road. Also an added bonus-- you can program the radio to random play through all stations and CDs for a personal juke box while on long trips. The third row is a bit tight- better for kids. A Consumer Reports pick . Less expensive to own, operate and insure than a minivan and a whole lot more fun to drive!!!!

This vehicle has a lot of usable room, both for people and cargo. Travels well on the highway. Limited rear visibility - very large rear posts. Low clearance can be a problem.
