The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

8.8

TCC’s Bottom Line

The Enclave is a smooth, comfortable vehicle suitable for large families. The 2016 Chrysler Town & Country piles a lavish amount of equipment and luxury touches into an aging body that suffers in the toughest crash tests. The 2016 Ford Flex remains a singularly boxy and handsome SUV, with excellent interior room and safety scores.
