2008 Dodge Grand Caravan vs. Its Competition

If you're not sure you need all the room found in the 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan, check out the Mazda5.

It's sportier and more fun to drive than the Dodge.

Should value be your biggest attractor, check out the Hyundai Entourage.

It does not offer everything the Dodge does, but the Entourage may have enough for you.

Quick Specs
8.2
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.
9.0
The 2009 Ford Flex is one of the most stylish new crossovers, with great passenger room and more features than some minivans.
8.4
The 2008 Honda Odyssey melds everyday practicality with fun-to-drive.
7.6
You'll find the 2008 Hyundai Entourage at the intersection of Practical St. and Value Ave.
7.0
Provided you don't expect too much of a zoom-zoom feel, the 2008 Mazda Mazda5 is one of the few good choices for buyers looking for minivan spaciousness in a vehicle that's especially fuel-efficient and maneuverable.
7.6
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.
