Better than any other 6 seat vehicle or minivan (at least on paper), and the only one available with a manual transmission.
Sliding doors make getting children in/out of safety seats a breeze compared to a small car, and the middle row seats are adjustable fore-aft, which is also a bonus over an economy car.
Tight in the corners, a plenty of control for safety - "zoom zoom"
The brakes are oversized for the vehicle, so it has very controlled stops. It also came with side air bags for all three rows and ABS standard, which were absolute musts for me.
I liked that it is made in Japan, which in my previous experience has resulted in very high quality construction and a lack of defects and problems down the road.
