2018 Buick GL6

Buick is getting ready to launch its all new GL6 wagon.
Or is it a small minivan.

It is based on the Opel Zafira. But has its own design.
And just like the Opel, it has regular doors. Unlike most minivans.
It is also smaller.

So it will fit right under the GL8 minivan in China.

I really don't think this is coming  over here. Since minivans are getting larger all the time.
There doesn't seem to be a market for a more sensible size.
(This reminds me of the first generation Honda Odysey. )

Kinda reminds me of a large Toyota Venza.

I miss small passenger vans. The Mazda5 was a perfect size for small families in urban areas. I know North America will never see something this size again (go on a diet America) the Opel Zafira would have been a perfect car for my family.

I know! I think these are actually the perfect size for most people. It seemed that for a while, in the 80's early 90's, we had a few of them here. At least two from Mitsubishi (also sold as Dodge/Plymouth) and that first Odyssey. Then everything grew too much!
I also new a few single friends, couples who were interested in these back then.
The current giant "mini"vans are really strictly for large families who are taking all their stuff with them wherever they go.
