Important: Frontal crash test ratings should be compared only among vehicles of similar weight.

The 2010 Chrysler Town & Country is a twin of the tested vehicle.

The Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town and Country were redesigned for the 2008 model year, and the Volkswagen Routan was introduced in the 2009 model year and discontinued after the 2012 model year.

Injury measures

Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity. Head acceleration from the roof rail/B-pillar hit was low.

Restraints and dummy kinematics

Dummy movement was well controlled. During rebound, the dummy's head hit the roof rail and B-pillar.

Injury measures

Driver — Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity.

Passenger — Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity.

Head protection

Driver — The dummy’s head was protected from being hit by any hard structures, including the intruding barrier, by a side curtain airbag that deployed from the roof.

Passenger — The dummy’s head was protected from being hit by any hard structures, including the intruding barrier, by a side curtain airbag that deployed from the roof.
