The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Volkswagen Routan has the bonuses of Chrysler's segment-defining minivans with a touch of German flair, but a modern-day VW Bus it's not. If you don't mind the anonymous styling of the 2010 Honda Odyssey, you're bound to be delighted with the well-designed interior and engaging driving experience.
