...props for being the first manual-transmission minivan i've ever seen...
...well, i'm not sure if that's necessarily a good thing, but props nonetheless - i suppose it justifies the hands-free phone controls integrated into the steering wheel?..
You can get the Mazda5 here in the US with a manual transmission. It is a minivan (really more like a microvan) built on the Mazda3 platform (slightly lengthend chassis and same engine/drivetrain). Several Lotus owners on here have them.
