The new models also feature improved safety features, coming with e-Assist advanced preventative safety technology as a standard feature.
The Minicab Van’s interior storage length, width and height, as well as its tailgate and rear seat sliding door are width and height put it at the top of its class. By combining the flat floor of the storage space with the square exterior design, it offers excellent loading capacity.
