What is it?

The Volkswagen SE is the second rung of the German MPV ladder — and with the 2.0-litre turbodiesel engine to a six-speed dual-clutch automatic as fitted to our test car, the most attractive model in the

It’s not the only seven-seater VW however. Its Touran model carry the same number of but is arguably not as premium or practical as the — its boot is 254 litres with the seats up and 384 litres spacious with the seats

Where does it fit?

The faces more relevant from elsewhere in the Volkswagen too. The £28,195 SEAT SE is £940 cheaper than the VW and boasts the same basic 140hp 2.0 TDI engine and DSG auto

This includes cruise automatic wipers and headlights, parking sensors, Bluetooth, a steering wheel and an eight-speaker system. The SEAT even larger 17-inch alloy and three-zone climate control on top of the dual zone offering.

Renault — which to have invented the MPV sector the Espace — offers its diesel Grand Scenic at while a similar spec Peugeot 5008 oil burner £22,445.

Is it for you?

While French vehicles might be than the VW, neither is as big or premium That means if you spend a lot of carting the children around but want something that’s and refined to drive and comfortable and inside, the Sharan SE is worth

Be aware that a foray the options list will see the rise quickly, however. Our car featured a few extras, including sat nav an integrated child seat keyless entry and go with tailgate system (£765), sunroof (£970), park (£215) and upgraded leather and metallic paint (£1,945 and respectively).

The above bumps the of the car up to a significant £35,650. Still, the SE is equipped well enough as if additional features aren’t on agenda.


What it do well?

The Sharan impresses in area. The powertrain is so well and the engine and gearbox so well that the driving experience is Gear changes are smooth and — and far from being and overtly sporty, it’s the efficient way to do it.

The engine is mostly up to the task, For the school run and motorway cruises is enough and will mean economy stays competitive, but if you do a burst of power to pull out a gap, the 1,803kg kerbweight take its toll.

That performance is on a par with the competition, the 0-62mph benchmark dispatched in seconds. Top speed stands at

It’s comfortable, quiet and on the cruise, and around town although rather large decent visibility means driving and busy traffic pose a problem. It’s not a bad bus either.

What doesn’t it do

Our first criticism of the Sharan is the While the VW badge might bring with it more than the SEAT symbol, do of versatile MPVs care, or they rather have the in their back pocket?

What is it to live with?

On the other it’d certainly be one of the easiest around to live with. The sliding rear doors are a and provide useful access to the row of seats — no doubt it a doddle to strap the nippers in.

With plenty of equipment if you have a big family and this has to be one and only car, it doesn’t many compromises.

How green is it?

The DSG-equipped returns 49.6mpg combined 149g/km CO2 emissions, and using the chassis, engine and gearbox nothing to divide the Volkswagen and in terms of efficiency.
