    Hits
    • More car-like that ever before with updated tech and safety systems
    • Versatility of the Multivan range is genius
    • Smooth drivetrains and improved steering feel
    Misses
    • No 4Motion option on the Cruise Edition seems like an oversight
    • Some options prices are over the top
    • LED headlights are still optional across the range
