The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.8
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 Ford Flex remains a singularly boxy and handsome SUV, with excellent interior room and safety scores.
