Pity the image of the Caravan Man. Constantly derided and stigmatized, minivan ownership of late has nearly become a punch line, as if being in their presence or being forced to *gasp* drive one is something to be looked down upon. Hopefully that tide will start flowing the other way in short order ? after all, the social arguments usually made against minivans can also be leveraged at the somewhat trendier crossovers that moved in to fill their territory. Let?s go down the list ? mostly owned and driven by females, check. Often populated with hordes of kids and all their detritus, check and check. Styled like a box, check. Based on a mid-to-full size sedan platform, check. Am I describing a minivan or a crossover? Exactly.
