Five-Point Inspection: 2013 Dodge Grand Caravan

2. Cavernous Storage Capacity

Managing 24 mpg is good, but it isn’t spectacular either. For example, you can seat seven in a Toyota Highlander and achieve similar highway fuel economy.

It’s true that members of the crossover world can offer seat capacity and fuel economy to compete on paper. Everyday practicality is another story. Just ask anyone unlucky enough to ride in the “third row.” Most are miserable.

Pick a minivan, on the other hand, and you’ll be able to fit at least five friends (with the optional captains seats throughout) in comfort.

If cargo space is your specific need, that’s fine too. Chrysler’s “stow-n-go” system makes it a cinch to tuck those chairs flat to the floor.

    Sedona will be gone?…It was just spied a week ago or so. VW van is basically a Caravan anyway so that POS doesn’t really count. This editor stinks…doesn’t know much about the car world.
