The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
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. 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.
