A week behind the wheel of a minivan sure makes you notice the amount of minivans being driven around the city. This week it seemed like every second vehicle was a minivan during my commute — although that may be a bit of an exaggeration, there certainly seem to be many Dodge Grand Caravans and Toyota Siennas around here.
Despite the insanely cold weather this week I averaged a reasonable 11.9 L/100 km in a vehicle with a lot of power and a ton of cargo space, which is mighty impressive. Around town the average hovered around 12.8 L/100 km but out on the highway fuel consumption dropped drastically.
There is no question that this type of vehicle, despite the stigma, is still the king of cargo and people hauling and Toyota makes a rather nice offering with few compromises.
