2011 Volkswagen Routan

Millions Where It Matters – the 2011 Volkswagen Routan

The Routan minivan is Volkswagen’s attempt to fatten their sales sheets. Hungry for a few dollars, VW contacted their competitors across the Atlantic and oh-so-nicely requested the blueprints to the Chrysler Town & Country/Dodge Grand Caravan. Chrysler acquiesced, and Volkswagen now has the Routan. Other pundits like to complain about its Chrysler-quality roots, but we say kudos to VW for a smart marketing choice. After all, Chrysler minivans sell like hotcakes, despite their so-so value. The Routan is not a segment leader, but VW is probably more interested in sales than compliments.
Mechanically, the 2011 Routan is nearly identical to its Chrysler compadres. It utilizes the same impressive V6 powerplant, which is very well suited to suburban driving tastes. Volkswagen is keen to point out that they spent millions reworking the suspension to create that “unique Volkswagen sense of feel.” The millions could have been better spent. The Routan is more agile and slightly quicker than its American counterparts, but what suburban parent gives two hoots about a half-second increase on a 0-60 dash? Still, if you are a sports car fanatic coerced into purchasing a minivan, the Routan may temper your need for speed.
Compared to Chrysler’s offerings, the Routan’s interior is less practical and more stylish. Interior quality and craftsmanship receive a welcome douse of European-style craftsmanship. Seating, upholstery, control interfaces, and general fitting have all been improved. Features are class-competitive, and one of the Routan’s four trim levels is sure to satisfy your lust for technology and convenience. For some odd and ill-advised reason, Volkswagen decided against Chrysler’s Stow-N-Go rear seating, and also foregoes the easily removable rear seating found in other competitors. The Routan boasts a massive 144 cubic feet of storage space, but that languishes behind Asian challengers, and it comes at the expense of some people space. Once again, it seems Volkswagen has spent money where it matters little to minivan shoppers.
But chances are, they’ll get those millions back.
