    Volksagen kills off the Routan, set to replace with 7-seat crossover

    Not really all that surprising that VW is axing this model considering how mini-van's are not longer in style and have not been for quite some time. The Routan is produced in a plant in Canada and the current contract of production has expired and won't be renewed for this model. A Routan successor simply is not in the cards especially considering the poor sales performance of the model in the United States. It's basically just a rebadged Dodge Caravan anyway.

    In 2012, sales Routan sales have declinded 16.9% and production year to date is down 38.3%. Volkswagen will replace the vehicle with a crossover of their own design which is likely a much smarter move.

    I wonder if they were surprised when it didn't sell.
