First drive: Volkswagen Sharan

Car Enthusiast

30 June 2015

If you've children to ferry around then a desirable car is one that's practical and sensible. They don't come much more practical and sensible than Volkswagen's updated Sharan. Embrace parenthood, in comfort.

Defeat, or at least an admission that you value usefulness and ease over style and vanity. The Volkswagen Sharan is a wheeled box, a very nice one admittedly, but a useful, practical box that's absolutely perfect for hauling you, your other half and as many as five of your offspring / relations / friends around in. The Sharan has been with us for around 20 years now, and the current one has just been revised. Not that you'd really notice, as the visual revisions are very limited, to new taillights and the like, while the interior gets some new connectivity and the engines greater economy and improved emissions.
