“instantly recognizable as a Chrysler”
“Squared off and slab-sided”
“a more sophisticated persona”
“big and dumpy”
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.
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.
