The Town and Country minivan has one of the best interior designs in this segment. It is for this reason that every year hundreds of thousands of buyers go for it. Its ability to carry lots of stuff and many passengers courtesy of its Stop ‘n’ Go seating arrangement further enhances its aura.

Now the Pacifica takes those impressive design cues from the Chrysler T & C and upgrades them to the next level. The vehicle accommodates 8 passengers spread over its 3-row seating arrangement. The dashboard looks picked from the Chrysler 200 sedan, same as the doors which adds a dose of modernity and attractiveness which the automaker has been introducing to its new fleet of cars.  There is also a new 8.4-inch Uconnect screen flush-mounted on the dash.

Second row passengers also get an Uconnect Theater which is mostly targeted for kids. The system features a pair of 10-inch touch-screens placed on the headrests of front seatbacks. The screens are controlled by kid-oriented software. Buyers will have an option to choose either a 13 or 20-speaker sound system. A three-pane sunroof which is the first of its kind and a built-in vacuum system which first appeared in the Honda Odyssey are offered as options.

The Stow ‘n’ Go seats have been redesigned and features larger seats which are more comfortable. The seats fold flat to the floor in their new receptacles curved between the frame rails. According to the automaker, a child seat can be installed to the second row without compromising access to the third row.
