Indeed; It is basically a Fit Wagon (doors and windscreen also seem identical), but given the FIt's somehow stubby MPV looks, it ends up looking more like a normal MPV than a small car based wagon....

Not exactly the hottest segment anymore, but still, there will be a new, larger Sienna (as we can see form the way the mule has been extended in basically all directions)

Is the Nissan CVT unreliable? Just asking, in Europe it has no "unreliable" image, most people don't like CVTs for the way they behave, but I haven't heard DCT like horror stories of transmission...

I fully agree, especially about the leght thing; These flowing fast back coupe lines really need length (or a flat car) to work; Here, the nose is too stubby, the roof too high, and well, all the...
