If you’re in the market for a minivan, onboard safety for your loved ones is likely high on your priority list.
As you search among currently available models, you may wonder if the 2016 Chrysler Town & Country safety features are superior to the competition or if a rival minivan, like the 2016 Honda Odyssey, might provide more peace of mind in terms of its offered safety amenities.
Keep reading, and we’ll explore the safety offerings of these two competing minivans as well as their industry safety ratings.
When it comes to industry safety ratings, the Odyssey is the clear winner over the Town & Country, having earned a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration,* which is the highest rating the NHTSA offers. The 2016 Odyssey has also been named a 2016 Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.**
In contrast, the Town & Country received only 4 stars from the NHTSA and has not been ranked on the IIHS Top Safety Pick list for 2016.
