Volkswagen Routan
2009-2014
2009 Redesign Year
Volkswagen Routan 2012 Trim Shown: 2012 Others

None of us liked the Routan when we tested it in 2009. It's really just a slightly tweaked and rebadged version of the dated Chrysler Town & Country minivan without the Town & Country's handy fold-in-the-floor second-row seats or swiveling captain's chairs. High points include a composed ride, a reasonably powerful 4.0-liter engine, and a quiet cabin. But handling is on the clumsy side, fuel economy is mediocre, and even the up-level engine lacks refinement. The power folding third-row seat and rear hatch operate slowly. The 2014 models were sold to fleet only.
