Volkswagen Canada has announced the introduction of the 2009 Routan, following its unveiling at the auto show in Toronto earlier this year. (As for the name, all I can think of is Routan -- now available without a prescription! But I digress ...)
From the press release: It features a unique European-tuned suspension and steering matched for handling and improved driving dynamics in the tradition of Volkswagen's German engineering heritage ... Instantly recognizable as a member of the Volkswagen family, with its stylized front grille and exterior treatments ... Starting at $27,975, the 2009 Routan becomes the most affordable 7-seat import nameplate van in Canada.
Come on, guys. I know the folks at the top want you to play up the German engineering angle, but it's a Chrysler Town & Country with a different badge. We know it. You know we know it. Give us some credit here.
