I'm currently driving around in my mom's old 2005 Honda Odyssey minivan and it would be nice to have an upgrade. Even though I don't have a family large enough to fill in the seat I do have quite a few friends who shares my love of road trips.

The Metris looks like a good fit for me as it can seat up to 8 people and there is the option to fold down the unused seats for extra storage space.

It's not a size issue more so the fact that it's old and I've had to fix it a few times. I think it's time to move on and give the van back to my mom.
It's be great if the Metris is a bit overkill as you never know when you'll need to stuff 4-5 snowboards in the trunk. It's better to have the possibility of more space and power than be stuck when I need it and not have it.

True. You should just make sure to take a look at some of the other options. The Metris will definitely be great from a utility standpoint though. Some other options might be a bit more stylish.

Not really. I assume most people that goes for the larger bodied vehicles aren't thinking too hard about fuel economy. It's mostly for travelling use anyways so gas was always going to be on the expensive end.
Don't think there's an electric van to take the place of something this big, yet.

I think that when you are looking for a vehicle like this you have to expect pretty poor fuel economy. Having said that though, Having better fuel economy than your rivals definitely couldn't hurt your sales.
