The Peanut Gallery

The Town & Country offers two unique seating arrangements for its second row. They're dubbed Stow 'n Go and Swivel 'n Go, and they're mixed blessings, to be sure.

Stow 'n Go is standard on all Town & Countrys and includes two bucket seats that fold into compartments in the floor. The seats are small to accommodate this operation, and that means they're not the most comfortable for adult passengers. The plus side, of course, is that you don't have to lug heavy captain's chairs in and out of the van when you need to switch between carrying passengers and cargo.

The optional Swivel 'n Go features two conventionally sized bucket seats that can pivot 180 degrees to face the third row. They don't fold into the floor, but their large size means they're more comfortable for adults. They come with a small table that second- and third-row passengers can share. While this might be a workable setup for kids, opposing adults will end up getting their legs tangled in the small remaining space between the rows.

The Town & Country has a fold-into-the-floor third-row seat, like many of its competitors, but it also features a tailgate-seating mode that lets you tilt it backward so you can sit with your legs hanging over the rear bumper. A power-folding third row is optional, too. Its third row isn't as comfortable as the Sienna's or Odyssey's because the bottom cushion is short and canted upward at an odd angle. Foot space under the swiveling second-row seats is restricted and legroom is limited.
