The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
With the best flexibility and infotainment in the minivan world, the 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan also satisfies families with great safety scores and good gas mileage. The Nissan Quest may drive well, but its below-average seating and safety put it behind the rest of the minivan options on the road today.
