2011 Volkswagen Routan: Car Seat Check

This Car Seat Check was originally published in March 2011 on MotherProof.com.

Volkswagen entered the minivan market in 2008 with the Routan. If it looks familiar, that’s because it’s related to the Chrysler Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan. The Routan comes with two captain’s chairs in the second row and a three-seat bench in the third.

For the Car Seat Check, we use a Graco SnugRide 30 rear-facing infant-safety seat, a Britax Roundabout convertible child-safety seat and Graco high-back TurboBooster seat.

How many car seats fit in the second row? Two

How many car seats fit in third row? Two

Editor’s note: For three car seats — infant-safety seat, convertible and booster seats — to fit in a car, our criterion is that a child sitting in the booster seat must be able to reach the seat belt buckle. Parents should also remember that they can use the Latch system or a seat belt to install a car seat.
