Loading and unloading is predictably easy and the accommodations are comfortable. We also appreciated the new model's much-improved steering and braking response, and found the 4. The Chrysler minivans aren't as nimble in parking lots as the exceptionally tight-turning Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna. A comprehensive entertainment system offers two independent video displays.

Driving It If you've found the ride and handling of other minivans too soft or too firm, you might appreciate the Chrysler minivans' balance between highway comfort and around-town responsiveness.

Second-row seating options include fold-flat Stow 'N Go or rearward-pivoting Swivel 'n Go seats, integrated child booster seats, power windows and manual sunshades.
The base price is among the lowest in the category, but that's in conjunction with the category's weakest powertrain. The all-new Chrysler minivans lose the previously-available four-cylinder engine and gain the category's first six-speed transmission. . . .
