As far as cost, it's not cheap, but it's cheaper than a lot of cargo bikes. My wife did a lot of research on this and it was definitely the best priced option for putting the kids up front.

It's not bad handling. I would recommend taking a few drives without your child to get the hang of it, but really it's just about how fast you can corner while still feeling safe. Trikes are tippy in the turns by nature, so you just learn to compensate and everything will be OK.

With regards to space, the smallest you can get it to be is in stroller mode. No doubt it will eat its share of real estate.

I think the way to look at it is, if you would use it a lot, it may well be worth the price and space it takes up. If you don't use it that much, it's probably not.
