The original, 1980s Toyota Tarago - known as the Space Cruiser in Japan - was simply a van with extra seats and windows, but became a dedicated, all-new people-mover from 1990.
That model was famous for its egg-shape styling, though the latest model's wedge-style design has more in common with the original.
While there have been several generations of the Tarago, the latest iteration has been going since 2006.
Bigger, V6 engine offers good power
2nd and 3rd row accessibility (2001 onwards)
General reliability, even of earlier models
Not that affordable for families on tighter budgets
1990s Tarago had only one sliding door for access to rear cabin
Latest model's four-cylinder engine provides only adequate performance
Latest-generation Tarago was released back in 2006
