Designated only for fleet availability in 2013, the seven-passenger Volkswagen Routan is constructed on a formidable front-wheel drive chassis that also serves as the basis for the Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country. The 2013 Volkswagen Routan is powered by Chrysler’s Pentastar 3.6 liter V-6 engine. Delivering a potent 283 horsepower, the powerplant of the 2013 Routan is balanced enough to provide healthy fuel economy rated at 17 miles per gallon city and 25 miles per gallon highway. A six-speed automatic transmission channels engine power for a smooth delivery to the front wheels. The 2013 Volkswagen Routan is offered in three major trim levels consisting of S, SE and SEL Premium. At the entry-level, the 2013 Volkswagen Routan S minivan is standard equipped with automatic headlights, air conditioning, cruise control, power windows as well as front, side and curtain airbags. Equipped with the rear seat entertainment package, navigation system and power sliding doors, the 2013 Volkswagen Routan SE provides a heightened amount of riding comfort as well as style with alloy wheels. The top-of-the-line 2013 Volkswagen Routan SEL Premium features a leather interior and a 9-speaker, 560-watt sound system.
