The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Dodge Grand Caravan has some innovative features and seating options, but it's no longer at the head of the class in performance or refinement. The 2010 Toyota Sienna is not going to win any awards for driving pleasure, but for what it is, a family hauler, it’s more than adequate.
