When it comes to minivans, the Chrysler Town & Country is at the top of many families’ shopping list. In 2014, the Town & Country ranked No. 1 in minivan sales with 138,040 sold, according to Automotive News. For the 2015 model year, the Town & Country adds more luxury with standard leather seats on base models and a standard sunroof and dual-screen Blu-ray system on Limited Platinum versions. What haven’t changed are the van’s ultra-flexible second row Stow ‘n Go seats, also standard.

How many car seats fit in the third row? Two
What We Like
- The two sets of lower Latch anchors in the second-row captain’s chairs were easy to use with both hooklike and rigid Latch connectors.
- The second row had plenty of room for our rear-facing infant and convertible seats. We didn’t need to move the front passenger seat forward to accommodate them.
- Both the forward-facing convertible and the booster seat fit well in the second row. The captain’s chairs recline, making it easy to get a good fit with these car seats.
- The forward-facing convertible installed easily into the third row, too.
- Third-row access is excellent because of the wide walkway between the captain’s chairs. The Stow ‘n Go seats also easily tumble forward, and the step-in height is low.
What We Don’t
- The second row’s tether anchors are at the base of the seatbacks. While the tethers were easy to use, this location can be difficult for parents to find.
- The third row has one set of lower Latch anchors, which we like, but its location draws a negative review. The anchors are found on the larger portion of the 60/40-split seat, spanning two seating positions. This means you’ll use two seating positions when installing one car seat in the third row using the Latch system.
- Parents using the third row’s tether anchor will want to make sure they’re paying close attention and attaching the tether strap to the anchor and not a nearby cargo hook.
- Seat bolsters in the third row affected the booster seat’s fit. It sat at an angle, but we were able to push it back into an upright position. Seat belt buckles are floppy, which can be difficult for young kids to manage on their own.
