The 2015 Chrysler Town & Country is Now Available in Boulder
Drivers looking for a minivan that can tote the whole crew in comfort have probably considered the 2015 Chrysler Town & Country. This vehicle offers a number of features, including:
- Steering wheel mounted controls for audio and cruise control
- Rearview backup camera
- Overhead and seatback storage
However, those amenities alone don’t make the Town & Country much of a contender when you see what the 2015 Honda Odyssey has to offer. The Honda Odyssey offers superior fuel economy, sharper maneuverability, much more space, and received higher crash test ratings than the Chrysler Town & Country.
For starters, the Odyssey promises 19 mpg city/28 mpg highway*, which is 2 more mpg city and 3 more mpg highway than the 17 mpg city/25 mpg highway that the Town & Country achieves. To top it off, the Odyssey gets those higher fuel economy numbers all while being much larger.
The Honda Odyssey features greater passenger volume than the Town & Country as well, offering up 172.6 cubic feet, which dwarfs the 162.8 cubic feet offered by the Chrysler.
Despite the size of the Honda Odyssey, it’s also more maneuverable than the Chrysler Town & Country, commanding a turning radius of 36.7 feet compared to the 39.1 feet it takes for the Chrysler to turn. As you’ve probably gathered by now, the Odyssey offers all that a mini-van should, but minimizes all of the hassles commonly associated with driving a larger vehicle, like low mpg or graceless handling. The Chrysler Town & Country hasn’t taken that initiative.
Finally, the Honda Odyssey outperformed the Town and Country in nearly every safety test, earning 5 stars from the NHTSA in the Front Driver Crash test, Front Passenger Crash test, and Overall Frontal Rating. The Chrysler Town & Country only achieved 4 stars in these respective tests.
