Volkswagen was way ahead of the minivan curve with its iconic Microbus, which evolved into the Vanagon and Eurovan. Last year, in order to get back into the minivan marketplace, VW teamed up with Chrysler to produce a version of the Town & Country/Grand Caravan under the Volkswagen label, the VW Routan. After 14,681 sales in 2009, the Routan returns essentially unchanged for the 2010 model year.
