Co-developed with Seat with Ford (who each sell their very own variants) the Sharan has become looking decidedly old-fashioned along with a decision on replacing it’s yet to be taken. But exceed the appearance, and also you find a five seater multi-purpose machine that delivers good dynamics, a higher build quality, along with a broad selection of engine and trim packages.
Handling is preferable to might be expected of this type of tall vehicle, and also the 2.5V6-engined variant, with 200PS, is a seriously good high-speed hauler. With the Touran overlapping the underside end of the Sharan’s market place, and interest in seven seat multipurpose vehicles increasing, any replacement must be appreciably different in execution to the current car.
And success is determined by being able to get partner companies to agree with a new format when the machine will be viable.
