The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
Plumbers and pet-sitters will be well-suited to the Ford Transit Connect, but a traditional minivan's a better choice for family hauling. Function reigns supreme in the Dodge Grand Caravan: it has the best seating system and infotainment features of any minivan, and gas mileage and safety scores are excellent.
