VW Routan Continuing As Fleet-Only Vehicle in 2013
However, a new twist has been put on the story. Leftlane has learned that the Routan will no longer be available at VW retailers and will be relegated to the role of fleet car. It sounds to us like an official decision is still pending!
The Routan was launched in 2008, built on the same body as the Chrysler Town & Country, which will soon be replaced by a new model. Sales have been sluggish to say the least due mainly to the increase price over the Chrysler version, and VW would be wise to move out of this segment altogether and focus on its more desirable SUVs.
