Note: This interior review was created when the 2016 Chrysler Town & Country was new.

Scorecard

Interior: 8.0

Test drivers report the 2016 Chrysler Town & Country has a stylish and high-end interior built mostly with premium materials. They like the number of features in the Town & Country compared with similarly priced competitors. Some critics say the infotainment system can be difficult to use at times. Reviewers praise the Stow ‘n Go folding seats.

  • "Step into the 2016 Chrysler Town & Country and you'll know you're not entering a strictly for-the-school-runs hauler. With a standard touchscreen interface and leather seating, the high level of content is immediately evident. Some of the interior plastics are a little underwhelming to the touch, but the cabin is generally appealing and upscale in appearance." -- Edmunds
  • "One of the longest-running models in the minivan segment, Chrysler's Town & Country offers a long list of standard luxury features in addition to a capacious, versatile and innovative interior." -- Left Lane News (2015)
  • "Particularly when loaded with options, the T&C undercuts comparably equipped Japanese-brand competitors by thousands of dollars without feeling the least bit cheap inside. In fact, the dressy interior delivers quite a sense of occasion." -- AutoTrader (2015)
  • "Most interior materials have a premium look and feel. Padded door armrests and nicely grained plastics add style and substance." -- Consumer Guide (2013)

Seating

Seven people can fit in the 2016 Chrysler Town & Country’s three rows of seats. Leather-trimmed first- and second-row seats are standard, while power-adjustable front seats, heated front- and second-row seats, a heated steering wheel, power-adjustable pedals and second- and third-row sunshades are optional. Some test drivers say the seats are comfortable and offer decent head- and legroom, though a few say the second- and third-row seats have an awkward position that may be uncomfortable for adults. A few add that third-row headroom isn’t sufficient for adults. Critics report road noise is nearly nonexistent in the cabin. They appreciate that the large door openings and a low floor make it easy to get in and out of the Town & Country.

  • "On the highway, the Town & Country banishes almost all wind and road noise, allowing for easy conversation across all three rows." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "Seat comfort is acceptable, but some may find that the deeply reclined seatback cushions in the second and especially third rows can make for an odd seating posture that adults, in particular, might find difficult to take for the long haul. Only those still growing will find adequate headroom in the third row, though such is the case for most minivans." -- Edmunds
  • "Plenty of headroom and legroom for six-footers. The field of vision aft and to the corners is good thanks to large windows. Headrests on rear seats can impede the view rearward, but they can be lowered when not in use. Wide door openings and a low step-in height make for easy entry and exit." -- Consumer Guide (2013)

Interior Features

The 2016 Chrysler Town & Country comes standard with power-sliding rear doors, a rear-seat entertainment system, a rearview camera, a six-speaker audio system, satellite radio, Bluetooth, two USB ports and an infotainment system with a 6.5-inch touch screen. Optional features include tri-zone automatic climate control, a power sunroof, an upgraded dual-screen rear-seat entertainment system, a nine-speaker audio system, push-button start, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert and rear parking sensors.

Reviewers are impressed with the many standard features in the Town & Country that are frequently optional in rival minivans. A few think the infotainment system's complicated menus make some settings difficult to access. Some critics think the infotainment system is easy to use thanks to its mix of physical and touch-screen buttons, while others think the controls are tough to reach.

  • "For 2016, the Chrysler Town & Country still comes standard with features that other minivans often charge a premium for. Leather seats, power-sliding doors, a power liftgate and a touchscreen interface with a rearview camera are all standard." -- Edmunds
  • "Among this 7-passenger minivan's few faults are a touch-screen audio system that requires quite a reach. …" -- Kelley Blue Book (2015)
  • "The standard Uconnect audio system blends traditional buttons and touchscreen controls to good overall effect. A few functions are buried in menus, which is more problematic on models equipped with the navigation system." -- Consumer Guide (2013)

Cargo

The 2016 Chrysler Town & Country’s maximum cargo space, at 143.8 cubic feet behind the first row, is somewhat better than average for the class. There are 33 cubic feet of cargo room behind the third row of seats and 83.3 behind the second row. The Town & Country comes standard with a power liftgate and Stow ‘n Go second- and third-row seats that fold flat into the floor. Power folding third-row Stow ‘n Go seats are optional. Critics praise the Stow ‘n Go seats and say they make the Town & Country a great cargo-hauler, though a few think the seats appear complicated to fold. Some add there are plenty of storage spaces throughout the cabin.

  • "The versatile cabin continues to be highlighted by Chrysler's clever Stow 'n Go feature. Standard on the second row seats and available as an option for the third row, Stow 'n Go allows the seats to be easily folded into the floor, creating a flat loading space for cargo. Also standard are third-row 'tailgate seats,' which flip backwards to create a rear-facing bench." -- Left Lane News (2015)
  • "One of the Town & Country's strongest selling points is the Stow 'n Go functionality of the second-row seats, allowing them to fold flat into the floor at the simple tug of a lever." -- Edmunds (2014)
  • "In addition to the plethora of storage bins and cubbies scattered over the interior, the center console has many storage compartments of different sizes. The underfloor bins for the Stow 'n Go seats can be used as storage when the seats are deployed. The process of folding the 2nd- and 3rd-row seats into the floor can seem complicated, but the convenience of Stow 'n Go more than makes up for it." -- Consumer Guide (2013)
