The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

7.8
8.0

TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2015 Dodge Grand Caravan is the evolved version of the original minivan, supplying the useful features and clever touches at a very good value. The 2015 Kia Sedona brings a stronger seating and infotainment game to the minivan niche, and almost closes the refinement gap in the process.
