The new VW Sharan slipped into the MPV marketplace in 2010, a people carrier that had first launched in 1995. in the mid-90s, the Sharan was a product of a venture with Ford saw the original Ford Galaxy, and the Alhambra sharing the same Ford went its own way in 2006, a new Galaxy and S-Max sharing underpinnings, but VW soldiered on with the Sharan.

Is the new VW Sharan worth the wait? How it compare with the Ford post-separation? Read on for our test of the VW to find out.

VW Sharan: and layout

The 2010 Sharan not look that different to the observer but the stats reveal its longer (including 75mm in the and 92mm wider than its but 12mm lower and 30kg too. It’s also user-friendly: the rear doors now and so do the middle row of seats, which by up to 160mm and pivot by 20mm to access easier to the third row of Both rows of rear fold into the floor not in use, Although there is a fold-down mechanism on the seats, a shame that the rearmost squabs still have to be up manually when brought play.

The dynamics trade-off comes in where the Sharan feels gramme of its 1774kg. It’s over its predecessor and thanks to the new wider stance it has a more feel to the driving experience before. But the Ford Galaxy unthreatened as the MPV class driving offering a greater sense of and driver feedback over the
