All depends on what you are after and how much of a hurry you are in. If you want something modern, that is space and fuel efficient you might want to look at the new Ford Transit when it comes out. The smallest Sprinter is not that much bigger than a full-size Ford van either and warrants a look. But as has been stated, the new Nissan is a step backwards in design and efficient use of space. I have no idea what Nissan were thinking. The turning circle must rival the Exxon Valdez and the front overhang is longer than that of a '63 Galaxy. These are all big vehicles and to handicap them with poor design from the start is foolish.
As old as the basic van design is, it works.
