The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
6.6
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Chrysler Town & Country has the most equipment available on any minivan to date, making it a great choice for anyone who wants the utility of a van with the amenities of a luxury car. The 2015 Mazda 5 has good road manners and clean styling, but its flexibility is undercut by poor safety ratings. The Nissan Quest isn't the safest or most practical vehicle in the segment, but it is one of the better driver's choices.
