Volkswagen Routan

Specs: 251 horsepower, 4.0-liter V-6 engine

The Volkswagen Routan (about $25,900) comes with a choice of two V-6 engines -- a 197-horsepower, 3.8-liter V-6 or the class-leading 251-horsepower, 4.0-liter V-6. Both are powered by a six-speed, automatic transmission. New as a 2009 model, the Volkswagen Routan is a cousin to the Chrysler Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan, so it has the similar boxy shape while it utilizes the Volkswagen front-end styling. The Routan shares many of the features of the Chrysler Town & Country, but it does not share the unique Stow 'n Go seating. The Routan's second-row captain's chair folds over but not into the floor, and there's no swivel option as there is on the Chrysler.
