The Passat also has a 5-star safety rating and a redesigned exterior. Driver Assistance features can be added for the family adventure.
With space, convenience and entertainment, the minivan offers a comfortable ride. The Honda Odyssey and The Chrysler Town & Country have three rows, sliding doors and ample space and storage for the family. New "infotainment" systems will keep the kids busy while you focus on the drive. The Odyssey starts at a higher price than the Town & Country, so depending on your budget, you may want to test drive both.
