As Motor Trend indicates, minivan purchasers generally rate exterior appearance as a secondary factor to consider when purchasing a vehicle. Compared to the previous generation of Town & Country, however, the recently upgraded model does well to steer away from complete boredom and actually proves acceptable in reviews read by TheCarConnection.com, if not overly pleasing.

As was the case last year, the 2010 Chrysler Town & Country minivan is available in three trim levels, states ConsumerGuide, which reports that "LX, Touring, and topline Limited models are offered." The exterior differences between the trim levels are minimal, but still noticeable. Cars.com reviewers note that "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— and according to Forbes, this approach is "preferable to minivans disguised with visual gimmicks." Kelley Blue Book says that 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.

The interior of the 2010 Chrysler Town & Country remains virtually unchanged from last year's model. 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." Others, however, were offended at the Chrysler's overuse of certain materials—Cars.com reminds consumers that "there's an endless array of cheap plastic panels" and "in many places they look downright tacky."

Conclusion

The 2010 Chrysler Town & Country returns to its 1980s styling roots on the outside but features a little too much plastic on the inside for some reviewer's tastes.

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.
