2011 Volkswagen Routan Overview

The 2011 Volkswagen Routan is Volkswagen’s upscale version of the Chrysler Town & Country minivan.

From the outside, the similarity between the two is easy to see.  The Routan keeps the Town & Country’s upright, boxy appearance but adds on Volkswagen style rounded headlights and a lower air dam.  There are several exterior options available which add convenience for families, including power sliding doors and a power liftgate.  Towing capacity is 3,600 pounds.

Under the hood there is only one engine option but it’s a good one – a 283-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 which provides plenty of power and is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.  The Routan’s fuel economy numbers are competitive for the minivan class and come in at 17 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.  Volkswagen has also retuned the Routan’s suspension and steering to give it a sharper, more European driving feel than its American counterparts.

The 2011 Routan is available across four different trim levels, S, SE, SEL, and SEL Premium.  Standard features include tri-zone manual climate control, cruise control, power windows and locks, auxiliary audio input jack, and a leather wrapped steering wheel.  The options list for the Routan is long and it allows you to find the perfect balance between the features your family needs and the price you’re looking to pay.  Optional features include leather upholstery, remote start, a power-folding third row bench, heated first and second row seats, navigation, Bluetooth® connectivity, automatic climate control, a dual-screen reare DVD entertainment system, and a Wi-Fi router.

The Routan is also chock-full of standard safety equipment, such as LATCH child seat anchor points, a full complement of airbags including a driver’s knee airbag, active front head restraints, antilock brakes, and electronic stability control with brake assist.

If you’re looking for a comfortable and upscale people carrier, the 2011 Volkswagen Routan fits the bill.
