Want to know everything there is to know about this car?

  • Economy

    Value

    5 out of 5 5.0

    A lot of seats for the money!

    Costs

    5 out of 5 5.0

    Seems to be about the same as my previous car - a Golf. Nothing shocking like a BMW.

  • On the road

    Driving

    4 out of 5 4.0

    Not as good as a car, but pretty good for an MPV. Not at all "van like".

    Performance

    4 out of 5 4.0

    Considering the weight etc not bad at all, but then you don't want to race around when it's full of kids.

  • Living with it

    Reliability

    4 out of 5 4.0

    Was great but now at 4 years old starting to pick up a few issues. Anti roll bar broke, A/C packed up, spare wheel winch seized, driver door lock seized.

    Getting old so don't care any longer!. Always happy behind a VW badge. Most people who have been in it seem to be impressed by the Sharan.

    Comfort

    5 out of 5 5.0

    Driven to Switzerland in a day several times with no back ache or foot/leg ache. No complaints here. Plenty of legroom in rear, third row particularly good when compared to some.

    Security
