The 2010 Dodge Grand Caravan earns good safety scores, though not best in class. NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) gives it five-star scores across the board, and the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) calls its front and side-impact performance "good." In rear impacts, the IIHS says it's "marginal," which keeps it from being a Top Safety Pick.

According to Motor Trend, the curtain airbags protect all three rows of passengers. Cars.com reports that in the 2010 Dodge Grand Caravan, anti-lock brakes and an electronic stability system are both included as standard equipment, as well as front, side, and curtain airbags. An integrated booster seat is offered in Swivel 'n Go versions, Cars.com states.

Other safety options include a blind-spot monitor, a rearview camera system, and rear parking sensors. Autoblog tests a 2010 Dodge Grand Caravan outfitted with the backup camera and doesn't have kind words. They say "using it was worse than trying to watch football on one of those 6-inch TVs sold at drug stores."

Conclusion

The 2010 Dodge Grand Caravan is nearly at the top of its class in terms of safety; the high-tech safety options vary in usefulness.

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.
