With so many mini-vans on the market, why can't someone deliver a modern version of the Syncro...light...4wd...decent gas mileage...with a utilitarian/rugged look. Modern minivans offer so much in performance, convenience, and comfort, but they hardly seem suited for dirt roads...let alone back country excursions...and they look too futuristic for my tastes. The Sportsmobiles are fantastic, but they're just a bit bigger than my ideal long distance family adventure rig. The AWD Astros seem reasonably close, but I don't see any low mileage examples of those near me. Is there a model on the new car market that I'm missing out there somewhere? Am I the only one hoping for a compact version of the Sportsmobile? I keep reading and searching, but keep coming up empty.
