What Was the Last Volkswagen Minivan?

Unfortunately, Volkswagen no longer carries a minivan in its lineup. The last minivan to be offered by the automaker was the Routon, a seven-seat minivan that was based off the fifth-generation Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country. The five-door minivan was in production from 2008 to 2013, with the last model year being for 2014. The Routon ceased production in 2012 due to high inventory levels, at which point Volkswagen decided to reserve it for rental car companies and fleet programs.

If you’re set on driving a minivan but you still want to drive a Volkswagen, consider some of the other options offered by the automaker. The Volkswagen Atlas, a full-size SUV released for the 2018 model year, is the largest vehicle offered by Volkswagen. The five-door model comes with three different engine options (the most powerful being a 2.5L turbo with 299 horsepower and 368 lb-ft of torque) and up to 96.8 cubic feet of cargo space. Additionally, the Atlas can seat seven people like most minivans. With 17 cupholders and available second-row captains chairs, you can tell this SUV was built for a family the same way the Routon was.

Minivans have been decreasing in popularity over the last few years, but that’s only because SUVs can offer so much more. If you’re interested in opting for a full-size SUV instead of a minivan, come check out our inventory here at Hall Volkswagen or schedule a test drive today!
