The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
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 Dodge Grand Caravan is an exceptional value among minivans, but some crash-test scores are cause for concern.
