I don't know that it is better - just different. The Transit is more of a "Euro" van - taller but narrower than a typical US minivan.

It does get better fuel economy:
2015 Transit Connect LWB - 23 mpg combined
2015 Grand Caravan - 20 mpg combined
2015 Sienna - 21 mpg combined
2015 Odyssey - 22 mpg combined

It is also a good bit cheaper. A new 2022 Transit Connect Wagon starts at $28,000. The rest are all in the mid- $30's for the base model
