2013 Chrysler Town & Country Interior
Reviewers are generally positive about the cabin in the 2013 Chrysler Town & Country, but not as positive as they are about the interiors in other minivans. Reviewers like the abundance of storage spaces, flexible cargo and family-friendly features, but some complain that the seats aren't as comfortable as in other vans.
- "Most interior materials have a premium look and feel. Padded door armrests and nicely grained plastics add style and substance." -- Consumer Guide
- "Within the two lower trims of the Town & Country, you'll find a cabin nicely trimmed with quality materials and a classic design. Springing for the Limited brings an interior that is downright posh." -- Edmunds
The Chrysler Town & Country can seat seven people. Reviewers say the front seats are long-haul comfortable, but though the second row captain's chairs aren't uncomfortable, they also aren't as hospitable as those in other vans. That's partially due to the Stow 'n Go system that allows the chairs to fold into the floor, but also means compromising on seat padding. Regular second-row captain's chairs that don't fold into the floor are optional. Reviewers say they are a big improvement over the folding seats, but they do make it slightly more difficult to maximize cargo space.
- "The 2nd-row seats are roomy and supportive. They are mounted a bit low, so adults ride in a slight knees-up position. The 3rd-row bench can accommodate 2 passengers comfortably, but three adults will feel cramped." -- Consumer Guide
- "Several Edmunds editors of different heights noticed that the pedals are mounted close to the seat, limiting legroom for taller drivers even when the power-adjustable pedals are moved as far forward as possible." -- Edmunds
- "Of all the high-end features in the Town & Country--automatic high-beams, remote start, even a heated steering wheel--we found most overrated the $320 luxury second-row seats, which are robust captain’s chairs with a pair of armrests. They’re perfectly comfortable but lack the slick fold-flat feature of the standard Stow ‘n Go second row.” -- Car and Driver (2011)
The 2013 Chrysler Town & Country has a rear-seat DVD entertainment system standard on all trims. Other available features include uConnect, which turns the Town & Country into a rolling WiFi hotspot, Bluetooth, navigation, Sirius Backseat TV, and a rearview camera.
By and large, reviewers are fans of the electronics in the 2013 Chrysler Town & Country, They're impressed that a rear-seat DVD entertainment system is standard across the line, and say that the navigation system is one of the easies in the class to use. They also appreciate how clear and well-laid out the gauges and controls are.
- "The large gauges are easy to read. Most of the central control panel buttons are easy to reach. The standard Uconnect audio system blends traditional buttons and touchscreen controls to good overall effect." -- Consumer Guide
- "There are power outlets in the back to keep the juice flowing for a gaming device connected to the dual DVD entertainment system, which can include Sirius Backseat TV. Rear-seat entertainment systems (with headphones) are truly gifts from the heavens for any long-haul road trip." -- The Detroit Free Press (2011)
With all seats in use, the Chrysler Town & Country has 33 cubic feet of space. When the third row is folded, that space expands to 143.8 cubic feet. The Town & Country also features Stow 'n Go second row seats, which fold into the floor for more cargo space. When the seats are in use, their underfloor storage space are available to hold your gear. The Town & Country has a number of other small-item storage spaces.
Reviewers are impressed with how easy the Stow 'n Go seats in the 2013 Chrysler Town & Country are to use. Compared to other vans, which require the removal of the second row seats to maximize cargo space, reviewers say the Stow 'n Go system is much easier to use.
- "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
- "Unlike other minivans that require the awkward removal of the middle-row seats to achieve maximum cargo capacity, the Chrysler's Stow 'n Go seats fold flat into the floor. Operating these surprisingly comfortable seats is fairly simple; only a quick tug of a strap and a few gentle yanks make them disappear into the floor." -- Edmunds
