The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.3
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan has a fantastically flexible interior, but crash-test scores are a major concern. The 2017 Honda Odyssey may be replaced soon to bring it in line with competitors. It's still a practical van with a plan, and indispensable for big families.
