Expert Quotes:

“Not offensively styled, but they scream ‘function first’”
MotorTrend.com

“instantly recognizable as a Chrysler”
Cars.com

“Squared off and slab-sided”
USAToday

“a more sophisticated persona”
KBB.com

“big and dumpy”
BusinessWeek.com

Minivans are not machines of high style, although most reviews found the 2008 Chrysler Town & Country’s new shape acceptable, if not completely pleasing. MotorTrend.com wrote, “These are not good looking vehicles…they scream 'function-first' from every boxy corner and character line.” Cars.com noted, “They didn't go overboard trying to make it look like something other than a minivan.” Car and Driver liked the “Chrysler 300-like grille, quad headlamps, and chrome accents.”

The team at BusinessWeek doesn’t agree, remarking, “it still looks like a minivan—which is to say, big and dumpy.”

While most reviewers focused their interior comments on seating configurations and high-tech features, KBB.com did observe that the 2008 Chrysler “Town & Country combines wood-like and bright trim conveying a more sophisticated persona.“

TheCarConnection.com team eyeballed the 2008 Chrysler Town & Country with careful scrutiny. The angular exterior is what it is. Do keep in mind that the Town & Country’s interior is classier than the Dodge Grand Caravan’s, so if added sophistication is something you’re looking for, stick with the Chrysler.

Conclusion

The slab-sided exterior works for the 2008 Chrysler Town & Country, but the real magic is inside, where material choices should prove functional and wear well for years.

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.
