TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2013 Chrysler Town & Country is tops in safety, flexibility, and features--the things that matter in minivans--though it's pricey. Function reigns supreme in the Dodge Grand Caravan: it has the best seating system and infotainment features of any minivan, and gas mileage and safety scores are excellent. The Toyota Sienna has excellent power, safety, and seating, and only narrowly misses the class benchmarks in flexibility and gas mileage.
