#1 I'm trying to imagine how to say that name, "Younes Abouyaaqoub". Hopefully they have pictures and not just a name, as "Do you know 'Younes Abouyaaqoub?' might not yield much except "Who?" to average citizens, of everywhere.

#6 I'm trying to imagine how to say that name, "Younes Abouyaaqoub".

In French ou is pronounced oo as in pool. French is the language of the educated in Morocco. But heaven only knows how they pronouce that spelling in Spain. I think the name translates as Jonah father of Jacob, though, which is nicely Old Testament.

#7 Wikipedia has pictures of the Kangoo in its various configurations. I was not enamoured of the one we rented to drive across Germany with my mother and both trailing daughters in 2010, but it was the only option for four passengers and suitcases.
