How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.

Our expert editors build comparisons like this one to make it easy for you to understand the small handful of cars you should compare to whatever car you are already looking at. You get general thoughts on each car you should consider plus an easy way to compare basic information for yourself.

The Town & Country’s twin, the Dodge Grand Caravan, offers identical features at a slightly lower price compared to the Chrysler.

Honda’s excellent Odyssey is more enjoyable dynamically for the driver, while the Toyota Sienna provides a plusher ride.

However, neither can match the Chrysler’s list of features or its sticker (which heads toward the Kia or Hyundai).

We consider it significant that Volkswagen—the company that invented the minivan with its 1950 Transporter Microbus—is using the Chrysler minivan as the foundation for its 2009 Routan.

If you’re shopping for a practical family hauler, the Chrysler Town & Country needs to be on your “must drive” list if only for the features it offers.

The 2009 Volkswagen Routan has the bonuses of Chrysler’s segment-defining minivans with a touch of German flair, but a modern-day VW Bus it’s not.

The 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan is loaded with practical features that families on the go will use and appreciate, but it’s not the most luxurious minivan out there.

The 2008 Honda Odyssey melds everyday practicality with fun-to-drive.

The 2008 Toyota Sienna minivan does almost everything right for the family, with a roomy, functional interior and great ride comfort, but there’s not a lot of personality.
