Car of the Day
I got to drive this very nice 2020 Chrysler Pacifica today. This one is a Launch Edition, which means it has AWD. Along with AWD, it has safety features like adaptive cruise control, a self-parking feature, and a surround camera. The refreshed models look nice, but I think I’d prefer a loaded 2021 Toyota Sienna Limited with AWD in Cypress. The facelift still doesn’t provide AWD on the Pacifica Hybrid.
Despite the size, the van is easy to drive and see out of. The safety features and the cameras definitely help. Driver space is kind of small for a vehicle this big, and CarPlay is very compressed on the touchscreen. Overall, these are nice vans!

I rode in one and thought it was a very comfortable and capable. It's also the best looking current minivan in my opinion.
Nice looking MPV. I think the equivalent here for size and looks would be the Ford S-Max ST-Line.

@svend Reading your comment I thought of the Galaxy, and how it's probably more similar to that since the Galaxy is the biggest one - but no, turns out that the Galaxy and S-Max are both about the same size.
The S-Max is described as a "marginally smaller but sportier option". I find this interesting because I really thought the Galaxy was a class bigger. Why do they have the same car twice lol?
Probably to appeal to people who want something less family looking.
The B-Max and C-Max are discontinued so it's just the Galaxy and S-Max of the car related generation.
The other MPVs are from the Transit van family.
Ford Transit Courier Tourneo
Ford Transit Connect Tourneo short and long wheelbase
Ford Transit Custom Tourneo short and long wheelbase
But again, your Transit doesn't have to look boring.
@svend You must have a 512GB phone with all the car photos you have on there.
Sorry. I was on the PC. Those pics are from Autotrader U.K.
My mobile has Gbs of pics of cars I've done.

@svend You know what I think that even the base transit of the current gen looks great! I wouldn't mind the Connect models either. Ford interiors are not to my taste, for the last 10 or so years they all had that weird pointy cockpit. Not a fan. But the exteriors I like.
Ye', I didn't like those dashboards, friends had some Focus' and they were just meh, not as bad as the Honda Civic of the same period.
The S-Max dash doesn't look all that bad.
The Transit, erm, Transit (the non Courier, Connect or Custom ones), have a plain but nice dash.
