Volkswagen Routan

Volkswagen has managed to keep prying eyes away from viewing its forthcoming Chrysler-minivan-platform-based 'bus' – and it was only with shear luck that we spotted it today – just days before it’s Chicago Show debut.

The illuminated taillight appears similar to others in the VW line-up, and the rear-side window appears to be very different from any that we’ve seen on the Chrysler and Dodge brands. Watch for the Routan to official debut next week in Chicago, with an on-sale date slatted for late summer or early next autumn.
