guys, hello! just joined this forum with the hope of getting information which will lead me to deciding which carry/every van is suitable for me. my question is, i am seeing newer models with rear engines...

1.is this configuration better than the vans with front engines?
2.are there also newer models with front engines or are all newer models having their engines at the rear?
3.which is better in terms of heat dissipating inside the van?
4.is the 12V EFI engine available in both front and rear configurations?

thanks for the help. appreciate any info i can get.

!: That will depend on the purpose of the vehicle, and it's usage. The front engine is more rugged, having a solid frame underneath, the rear engine is unibody. If hauling heavy loads, the front engine is more suited. If mostly city driving with light loads, the rear engine is fine.

2: There are newer models with front engine.

3:I would venture to guess that the rear engine model would be cooler than the front engine model.

4:Yes.

Mine's a front engine. It heats up my butt during a long distance (100-150Km) trip. I think this is the no.1 disadvantage of the front engine but on my usual driving of 30-40Km, it doesn't feel compared to a long period trips. IMHO :)
