2011 volkswagen routan Reviews and News

2011 Volkswagen Routan Se Front Side View
The Routan SE is much nicer inside than the Dodge, and I prefer the styling over that of the Chrysler. The faux leather seating was thoroughly convincing -- I had no idea it was imitation hide until I read the spec sheet. For $35K including two rear video screens, a 30-gigabyte hard drive, and touch-screen navigation, this van is hard to beat. You lose the Stow 'n' Go seats of the Dodge, but honestly, I'd never miss them. The captains chairs in the Routan (and other vans) are significantly more substantial than the Dodge's folding seats. I've removed the second-row seats from my family's Honda Odyssey maybe half a dozen times in nine years. This much-ballyhooed feature is pretty overrated in my book.

We've previously discussed what the Routan is not (a true successor to the venerable Eurovans and Microbuses), so let's talk about what it is: a stylish alternative to the Chrysler Town & Country and the Dodge Grand Caravan that, like them, was treated to a few upgrades for 2011.

The Volkswagen Routan proved to be the perfect vehicle for my weekend dash to Chicago. Four adults, luggage, and a dog all made the journey. The two adults sat in the second row buckets while the canine enjoyed sprawling out across the 3rd row bench.
