TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Buick Enclave impresses with plus-sized chic--and it's one of the safest family crossovers you can buy. The Chrysler Town & Country is a more expensive, more plush Caravan--and a great choice for shoppers looking for the best flexibility and features in minivans. Boring isn't in its vocabulary: the 2014 Ford Flex makes owning a family wagon a statement of style.
