Top Safety Pick
IIHS

Four stars overall; four stars, front impacts; five stars, side impacts; four stars, rollover
NHTSA




It's not quite the safest minivan in the segment, but the Dodge Grand Caravan earns excellent scores from both reporting crash-test agencies.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) says the Grand Caravan's a Top Safety Pick, since it earns "good" scores for front, side, and roof-strength tests. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), meanwhile, rates the Dodge minivan at four stars overall, with a four-star score for front-impact protection and rollover resistance, and a five-star rating for side-impact protection.

The Grand Caravan is outdone only by the Honda Odyssey, which earns five stars from the NHTSA.

Standard equipment includes the mandatory dual front airbags and stability control; the Caravan's curtain airbags extend protection to all three rows of seats. The stability control system now includes trailer sway control, which applies anti-lock braking to selected wheels to correct against motions induced by towed vehicles.

A bundle of safety options includes parking sensors, a rearview camera, blind-spot monitors and automatic headlights. And thanks to the boxy design and vast greenhouse, outward visibility in the Grand Caravan is very good.

Conclusion

The Grand Caravan is almost, but not quite, the safest minivan on the road, with a bundle of advanced safety options.

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.
