Sensationally ugly. That is not a minivan. A minivan is a vehicle with a
lot of room, and a lot of flexibility in the seating options. It has the
ruggedness of a truck with the ride and smoothness of a car. It sits
higher than "ordinary" cars. It has many luxury and techno options, such
as the rear seat DVD entertainment systems and three zone air
conditioning systems. It has sliding side doors and a rear hatch that
make loading people or cargo much easier. It is an amazing grand touring
vehicle, with maximum comfort for a lot of people.
It is a Freestar with digital instrumentation.
