When two manufacturers share the development costs of a vehicle, you'd expect each to benefit from some of the more talked about features. This won't be the case when Volkswagen releases its Chrysler group-engineered minivan in 2008.

The killer app of the new Chrysler Town & Country is its "Stow 'n Go" seating and highly publicized "Swivel 'n Go" second-row captain's chairs. But VW's van won't be getting either one, according to Frank Klegon, the executive president of product development over at Chrysler. To quote the man, "I think you will see that it remains exclusive to us."

Since both vehicles will likely share a similar price point, we'd expect that the only thing that may sway buyers towards the VW would be its totally unshared sheet metal and its "People's Car" heritage.
