2010 Volkswagen Routan vs. Its Competition

2010 Volkswagen Routan 4-door Wagon SE Angular Front Exterior View
Nelson Ireson Nelson Ireson Senior Editor

The 2010 Volkswagen Routan is worth a look if you like the brave styling, need lots of cargo space, and don't mind trading a bit of refinement, especially in terms of fit and finish, to get them.

The Honda Odyssey has long been the choice of drivers that need the practicality of a minivan but still like to feel the road.

Toyota's Sienna offers a more modern look and feel inside and out, but when well optioned, it suffers with high pricing even more than the Routan does.

With deep discounts and attractive financing offers, the slightly less stylish Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country might be a good buy for the budget-conscious shopper.

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.

7.6
The 2010 Toyota Sienna is not going to win any awards for driving pleasure, but for what it is, a family hauler, it’s more than adequate.
