The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
With innovative features, families that need spaciousness and practicality should look at the 2010 Chrysler Town & Country—with plenty of entertainment and storage features, the only real downside is the isolated drive and some cheap-looking plastics on the inside. 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.
