Thanks Visran. Even after an accident and in rest too, you posted this first time. I was thinking about posting the same. I found these on road some days before. One Standard and the school bus. I taken pictures too. But i was riding my bike and both vehicles were in an speed, i couldn't get a good snap. The things i was noticed ,
the seats comes in as 2+2 option, instead of 1+2 in earlier models and in rear end it has 2+1+2 seats
it has 6 wheels and from sides it looks same as old one, but it has almost the same width of a route bus.

Welcome to TAI, an interesting 1st post.

A motor-able home, I am glued, do open a separate thread once you begin.

All the best.
