Stow 'n Go is the brand name Chrysler uses for seats that fold into the floor of the Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan, and they are the only minivans that have that feature for the second and third rows. The seatbacks on the second and third-rows in the Nissan Quest fold forward to create a flat cargo area, but they don't fold into the floor like the ones in the Chrysler minivans.


On other minivans, including the Honda Odyssey, Toyota Sienna and Volkswagen Routan, the third rows fold flat into the floor, but the second-row seats have to be removed to create a flat cargo area behind the front seats. In the Sienna, the second-row seats can slide fore/aft over a nearly 26-inch range. The Routan is a clone of the Town & Country and Grand Caravan, but Chrysler kept the Stow 'n Go feature for its own models.

You can see how minivans compare in other areas by checking out's Ultimate Minivan Shootout, here. Though that comparison test was conducted with 2011 models, all the contestants are basically the same now as they were then.
