If you've seen one minivan, you've seen them all, since it's hard to do anything very exciting or innovative within the constraints of a box intended for modern family transportation. However, the new shape of the 2009 Chrysler Town & Country steers away from complete boredom and proves acceptable in reviews read by TheCarConnection.com, if not overly pleasing.

The 2009 Chrysler Town & Country minivan is available in three trim levels, according to ConsumerGuide, which states that "LX, Touring, and topline Limited models are offered." The exterior differences are minimal, but noticeable, and Cars.com reviewers note "Touring models add body-colored moldings, fog lights and 16-inch alloy wheels," while the "Limited models get chrome moldings and 17-inch wheels." Otherwise, the exterior is pretty much what you would expect—Kelley Blue Book says the Chrysler Town & Country "now appears more in-line with the boxier roots of the first couple iterations," although their descriptions of a "bold and sophisticated" minivan might be stretching the terms. Cars.com commends the "upright windshield, blocky headlights, [and] no-nonsense tail," which "will go over well with minivan traditionalists."

The interior of the 2009 Chrysler Town & Country received some styling upgrades when the model was redesigned for 2008, but little has changed in the last year. The overall impression of the interior is positive in reviews read by TheCarConnection.com, with ConsumerGuide remarking that the "large dials and gauges are simple to locate and easy to read," and "most controls are plainly marked and work as expected." Edmunds says that the Chrysler Town & Country's "design theme can be described as appropriately plain and utilitarian, although dollops of faux wood trim, chrome accents and an analog clock brighten things up." Kelley Blue Book also appreciates how the Town & Country "combines wood-like and bright trim in conveying a more sophisticated persona" than its Dodge Grand Caravan sibling.

Conclusion

The 2009 Chrysler Town & Country returns to its 1980s styling roots on the outside but boasts modern and upscale touches on the interior.

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.
