2015 Chrysler Town & Country vs. Its Competition

2015 Chrysler Town & Country
Marty Padgett Marty Padgett Editorial Director

Minivans are family wagons first, cargo haulers second, but the best of them perform both duties at the flip of a seat.

The Chrysler Town & Country has one of the most flexible interiors, and its safety and infotainment features are among the best in the segment.

The same things are true of the Dodge Grand Caravan, its lower-priced near-twin, which is available with the cloth seats that some minivan buyers will prefer.

The Nissan Quest can't hold as much cargo because of its odd shape and size, as well as seats that don't fold away into the floor, but it handles better than the Chrysler; safety scores are disappointing, though, as is the case with the Kia Sedona, which recently returned to the market after a several-year hiatus bearing no updates.

Both the Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna have great crash-test scores and big-screen DVD entertainment systems like the Chrysler/Dodge twins, but they're pricey, and neither has a fold-away second-row seat.

One thing the Honda has that others don't is an integrated vacuum cleaner; it's included only on the most expensive trim level.
