Most of the plastic interior pieces have been replaced by soft-touch materials, adding to passenger comfort and overall appeal. The center console and the instrument panel were redesigned with style in mind, and the gauges sport a blue and red glow reminiscent of Volkswagens. The driver's seat is supportive and comfortable; however it does restrict legroom, even for average sized adults. The second and third row seats are reasonably comfortable, but the option to fold into the floor with the press of a button does require some trade-off. Other minivans with removable seats are far more passenger friendly, especially for long distance travel. For example, the second row seats are installed lower than most, though Dodge attempted to offset this by tipping them back somewhat to add legroom. In the third row, there is even more tip, which cramps headroom for adult passengers.
Three trims are currently available for the Dodge Grand Caravan, with a fourth on the way. These include the AVP/SE, the SXT, and the Crew. All trims have some standard features, with an assortment of attractive options available at extra cost. Enjoy power heated mirrors, power locks and windows, a tilt/telescoping steering wheel with integrated cruise and audio controls, and air conditioning with Dual-Zone Temperature Control. The UConnect Media Center is serviceable, with navigation, audio, and video included. However, it doesn't compete with the flashy electronics available in competing minivans, as the front display is tiny � only 6 inches � the controls lack logic, and the navigation system does not impress. Nonetheless, this minivan offers excellent value � an inexpensive entry level price with market leading features.
