I also own a minivan, and this car is just as comfortable a ride as the minivan. The trunk is larger than any car I've ever owned, yet the body is designed such that you don't feel as though you're driving grandma's car. It's more like a sports car.
Front-split bench seat, the roomy interior, the sporty body style, the passenger/driver climate control.
Maybe making side and rear tinted windows standard. Other than that I don't see any room for improvement.
