The Dodge Grand Caravan is a functional whiz among minivans, with fold-away seating on most models and a uniform standard of power and safety across the lineup.
It's nearly identical to the more nicely trimmed Chrysler Town & Country, which ladles on additional standard equipment, like leather trim, but doesn't any packaging advantages.
The Honda Odyssey is the gas-mileage, safety, and handling leader in the segment, and the only van available with an on-board vacuum cleaner.
The Nissan Quest is now the smallest, least flexible minivan on the market, though it has good road manners and an interesting look, as well as competitive gas mileage.
Roof-strength scores, though, are lower than the rest of the pack.
Toyota's Sienna no longer has a thrifty four-cylinder available, but it still offers all-wheel drive--the only one to do so in the segment--and has an option for aircraft-style second-row chairs.
Finally, the Kia Sedona recently returned, and it's being reworked for 2015, with an innovative sliding-seat system to increase its functionality.
