2010 Chrysler Town & Country Review

The Town & Country minivan is the up-scale version of the Dodge Grand Caravan and has been made in Canada since 1983. This latest generation was remodelled in 2008 and now has a boxier look to it than the previous model. Some journalists had described it as a jelly bean on wheels.

The box on wheels style has been a popular style in other vehicles, so it’s no surprise as to why they brought that look into this segment. I think the squared corners and angles make it seem big, and well, boxy, especially from the rear end.

In reality, there is not much they can do with how a minivan looks. The Toyota Sienna has a sport package that I think looks great – my favourite minivan on the market today.

But people buying minivans don’t do buy one for aesthetics. They are looking to buy something that is functional, comfortable and safe.

The 2010 Town & Country base model ‘Touring’ starts at just under $30,000 and has some great standard features such as keyless entry, fog lights, 16-inch alloy wheels, three-zone manual temperature control CD/ MP3 stereo with auxiliary input, leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls and a 115-volt power outlet.

Sitting in the driver’s seat, it is incredibly comfortable with other standard features like tilt and telescoping steering wheel, eight-way power adjustable seat and power-adjustable pedals. Spending hours behind the wheel of this van has been very enjoyable.

For this week, I am driving the Town & Country ‘Limited’ that has additional features like 17-inch alloys, HID Xenon headlights, iPod connectivity, heated seats for first and second row, CD/DVD/ HDD touch screen Infinity sound system and sunshades on the windows for passengers in the back.

I think that back up cameras are a much needed item on any family vehicle. It comes standard on the Limited trim level and makes parking a much less stressful event.
