    Chevy APV (in color)

    This is a differant kind of minivan. It's a small 7 seater with a 2-3-2 seating arrangement suicide doors and a very radical shape. The APV is designed to be not so boring, and really stand out in the crowd. It looks like people in the back would have no head room but, all but the front seats are placed very low to the ground provided ample headroom to 6 footers even in the 3rd row. The APV has a price range of $18,000-$30,000 and comes with a 3.6L V6 with 250hp or you can get a supercharged version which has 315hp.

    A small minivan . . . like a minivan of a scion xB? Or bigger? I think the suicide doors should be changed to sliding doors with a track. Soccer moms and suicide doors don't seem to fit quite right.

    this is trying to shake the "soccer mom" image from minivans and appeal to a broader range

    That looks really cool. AGRESSIVE! Have I told you before that I love the rims you draw?

    I can agree to appealing to a broader range but I don't think the single feature of suicide doors would bring in a significantly larger amount of buyers.

    true. and that's why i also have the big power and agressive design too.
    plus it needs them becuase it doesnt look like you could fit a big enough track for a sliding door on it.

    I think that the things that lure people to buy minivans are the child proof (can't smash them into other cars) doors, size and space for their needs as well as design. You've got a good design but I think you're too concentrated on form over functionality.
