    That's really good. It's probably a good representation of what it will look like.

    Unfortunately, it doesn't shout "sport" to me, just like I doubt the production model will.

    As long as it doesn't end up looking like a KIA Rio Cinco wagon from the side....

    Its okay, doesn't really look like a Pontiac or a Minivan or an SUV. It just looks like the Aventra its based on.

    Aztek DNA should be filed away for 65 million years, so that in the future, an action/horror movie can be made about it.

    I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that the new sport van will have the "front end of the Rendezvous / Aztek, and the rear of a Venture"....

    Real horror show.

    I think the styling mistakes of the aztek (mainly the rear tailgate hatch area), won&#39;t be repeated. I think it&#39;s likely that the unskinned front end will be the same as the rend/aztec. But the skin, facia, and headlights will be different enough to be distinguishable.

    I expect the shape body midsection of the vans to remain nearly the same. but, as with the rendezvous i expect the rear tailgate and hatch area to take on a more Suv like approach and not be van like at all. I think the side sheet metal will be new as well. I think the mid size suv&#39;s point the direction there.


    The reandezvous and aztec were the first crossovers engineerd off of the midvan platform. i expect the new crossovers to be a progression from there.
