SAFETY | 9 out of 10
Crash safety is one strong mark that carries over from the Chrysler basis, with the 2010 Routan scoring a top mark of "good" in IIHS testing, and earning five stars in NHTSA testing in every crash impact category, with only the rollover rating dipping to four stars.
The top scores are possible, thanks in part to the wide range of standard safety equipment, which includes driver and passenger airbags, side curtain airbags, electronic stability control, and ABS. Automotive.com points out, "Optional
safety features include rear park assist and a rearview camera."
The Routan does not earn a Top Safety Pick rating from the IIHS, but it's worth noting that no other minivan does either.
The 2010 Routan is a safe family vehicle that rates high in independent crash tests.
