Handling on this euro-popular van is as good as it gets in a six seater. We got this for the flexibility it offers. We only occasionally haul 5 or 6 around, but we do like the pickup sized rear space for the home center runs. With a little padded plywood, we plan to use the back as a foul-weather shelter when camping. If you drive a manual, skip the auto and you'll enjoy a perkier driving experience.
Highway mileage in the low 30s, city in the mid 20s. Steering, maneuvering as good as the mid sized sport sedan we used to have. Flexible interior.
