Don't buy a minivan until you see the new Volkswagen
EuroVan. EuroVan is a mid-sized passenger van that seats
seven adults and has 23% more space behind the front
seats than Toyota Previa. With EuroVan you get more
headroom, more legroom, wider seats and a bigger cargo
area, too. All this room in a compact, front-wheel drive van
that's fun to drive, easy to park and distinctly European.
There's nothing quite like EuroVan. Try one on for size.
