The Sharan is a seven-seat MPV which seems built to last and boasts a large cabin with flexible seating for carrying large goods or large families. Unlike a lot of MPVs it boasts car-like handling and feels light on its feet on windy backroads. The engines are brilliant, offering frugal economy and punchy performance. The let-down is the high price-tag but some people will be willing to pay for the quality on offer here.
Ford S-MAX MPV review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/ford/s_max/mpv/review
There are plenty of boxy, dull to drive people carriers that claim to rival
Ford's seven-seat S-MAX for practicality... But none are as good to look
at, or feel as special from the driver's seat. Despite the generous
dimensions, the S-MAX feels compact and nimble from behind the wheel. And
although the two rearmost seats are for children only, they fold flat
easily and there's a big boot.
SEAT Alhambra MPV review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/seat/alhambra/mpv/review
In simple terms, the new SEAT Alhambra is a Volkswagen Sharan, with a back
to basics interior and unique styling. The SEAT Alhambra offers all the
virtues of the more expensive Volkswagen for less money - which is why our
judges named it Best Large MPV in our 2011 Car of the Year awards.
Volkswagen Touran MPV review - CarBuyer
The Touran's boxy shape might not make it the most attractive of cars, but
it also makes the VW one of the most practical small MPVs available. The
interior is classy and well built and there's a wide choice of engines,
including an efficient BlueMotion version that's very cheap to run.
Ford Grand C-MAX MPV review - CarBuyer
The seven-seater Grand C-MAX could well be the best handling car in this
segment and with its fantastic, practical interior, could even be the best
car in its class. Like the five-seater C-MAX, the Grand offers buyers the
kind of handling you'd expect from a much smaller car. On top of that, the
interior boasts an intuitive layout and build quality is among the best in
class. The diesel engines offer a fantastic blend of performance and
economy, while the EcoBoostturbocharged petrol engines are quiet and
2011 Volkswagen Sharan 2.0 TSI Start-Up and Full Vehicle Tour
The Sharan is quite a nice car. Having both the space needed for family
trips or hauling items as well as the power needed to have a smooth highway
drive or just driving around in the city, the Sharan is a suitable
competitor to the favourites in the MPV market for Malaysia, the Toyota
Estima and Toyota Alphard.
compare it! VW Touran vs. Chevrolet Orlando | drive it!
Across Europe, the VW Touran ranks as one of the top five MPVs in its
class. More than a million have been sold around the world. The Touran has
been around since 2003, but underwent a major facelift last year. Now
Chevrolet is hoping its Orlando can grab some of Volkswagen's market share.
The American carmaker launched the Orlando in Europe earlier this year. Its
design is unusual: half minivan, half crossover with flared wheel arches.
And the Chevy's starting price is significantly lower than the Touran's.
But will that be enough to overtake the VW? drive it! puts both MPVs
through their paces.
Renault Espace MPV review - What Car?
Read the What Car? Renault Espace review
The Renault Espace has a roomy cabin and comfortable ride. The smooth
diesel engines are impressive and there's a good range of seating options,
Even in extra-long Grand form, the Espace struggles to take seven
passengers and their luggage. Kneeroom is tight in the rearmost seats and,
unlike in more modern rivals, the seats don't fold into the floor.

The Seat Alhambra vs Ford Galaxy | drive it!
The two MPVs share a common history.The first generation of the
people-carrier in 1995 was ultimately a joint production from Ford, Seat
and Volkswagen. Although the collaboration ended three years later, with
Ford developing the second generation of the Galaxy on its own, the basic
structure of the carmakers' models remained virtually identical until 2006.
The second generation of the Seat Alhambra has been on the market since
2010. Drive it! takes a closer look at the most powerful diesel versions of
the two models. The Alhambra delivers 125 kW of power, the Galaxy delivers
147 kW. For more go http://www.dw.de/dw/0,,9690,00.html
Ford Galaxy MPV review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/ford/galaxy/mpv/review
Ford's flagship MPV is built with one thing in mind: luxurious practicality
- and it succeeds. It's massive, offering loads of space in the cabin and
boot. Seven adults will fit comfortably, and both rows of rear seats fold
flat into the floor. It's luxurious and surprisingly responsive to drive,

Filmed by: Tomaž Kožar Jesenice
Fifteen years on from its launch, VW's first MPV, the Sharan (along with
the identical Ford Galaxy produced in co-operation with VW), defined a
political class that swept Tony Blair's "new" Labour into office in 1997.
They represented the caring, sharing Nineties as opposed to Thatcher's
Eighties go-getting Sierra man. They were also the first viable
alternatives to Renault's Espace.
These days the car market, like the political landscape, is vastly changed.
VW produces a fistful of MPVs; Caddy, Touran, Sharan and Multivan. No one
willingly drives these statements of fertility and they have become a
default purchase until the children are big enough to slot into a curvy
So while the new Sharan is bigger, better, stronger and longer than its
predecessor, it isn't a car anyone's going to love much. In fact, in
Britain 75 per cent are sold into fleets as crew buses for executives.
You're likely to lay your hands on a second-hand example in a couple of
years so this is a sort of cut-out-and-keep test. Our advice? Avoid the
ones with huge mileages and/or cargoes of chocolate-smeared brats.
At almost 16ft long and 6ft 3in wide, the new Sharan is 8.6in longer and
3.6in wider than the original. There's a beaky snout and the rest is all
load space. Twin sliding doors access the Sharan's middle kingdom and the
far-flung hinterlands are approached via a lifting tailgate. Powered doors
The cabin also feels huge. You can't see the corners or bonnet and there
are parts of the interior that you might never visit in a lifetime of
ownership. In tight urban squeezes the Sharan feels as bulky as a comedy
Sumo suit, so the £700 self-parking system is worth the extra. This is the
same system as on the Touran, which searches for a suitable bay as you
drive along, then turns the wheel to slot you into place while you operate
the steering, brake and throttle. The Sharan system is updated with a
bay-parking system.You could drive the Sharan wearing a stovepipe hat and
there would be head room to spare. That also goes for leg and shoulder room
in all three rows of seats. It's all immaculately put together, with
microscopic panel gaps, attractive surface changes and an integrity
unmatched in the class. Instruments come from the VW corporate parts bin
and are easy to use and attractive.
The seats are comfortable, although they feel slightly too soft at first.
They fold into the floor as originally devised by Kunimichi Odagaki,
Honda's chief engineer for the 1995 Shuttle model, and copied by
Vauxhall/Opel for the Zafira. VW's folding mechanism is the best yet -- a
genuinely one-handed operation.
There will be two turbocharged petrol
engines (138bhp 1.4 and 197bhp 2.0) and two versions of the VW group's
2.0-litre unit in 138bhp or 167bhp. Transmissions include a six-speed
manual, or six-speed, twin-clutch DSG at an extra £1,300. All UK models
are front-driven, but a 4x4 version is available in Europe.
We drove the 1.4 turbo petrol engine,
which is a brave choice for such a big car and smacks of former VW product
planning director (now Porsche boss) Matthias Müller optimistically
spreading the unit cost of this pricey little engine across as many VW
models as possible. At 1.75 tons, the Sharan is a lot of vehicle to be
hauled by something displacing just three pints. While there's no doubting
its outright urge, you have to match revs to turbo responsiveness.
We also tried the model that's likely to be most popular, the 138bhp, 2.0
SE turbodiesel. It's quiet, economical,
refined and fast enough to keep up with traffic. The manual gearbox is
smooth and easy to use, and the driving position is good. The
higher-powered diesel is better for long journeys and loads, otherwise this
is more than acceptable.
The handling isn't bad, either. Nose-wide understeer isn't overpowering and
body control is subtle, with good roll resistance. There's a Sport option
on the suspension but it merely hardens the ride annoyingly.
It rides very well and tracks straight and true, with a feeling of solidity
and security. The brakes are strong, with good pedal progression so you can
control the stopping, and the suspension doesn't dive under braking or
squat under hard acceleration. The steering's nice, too. Well weighted and
accurate, it doesn't have the free play that afflicts so many rivals.
VW's Sharan is a box, a well-insulated, efficient and highly refined box,
but a box none the less. Only Renault's Espace has any cool in this market
sector -- for which you pay heavily.

SEAT Exeo review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/seat/exeo/saloon/review
SEAT hadn't built a large saloon car before the Exeo, and so it drew on
Audi's engineering expertise to help it do so. The Exeo is essentially an
old Audi A4 with a redesigned exterior, so it's not the most advanced car
around, but the Exeo is exceptionally well built and SEAT's
value-orientated status means it's big on equipment. The choice of engines
is a little limited for a saloon, but the ones that there are, especially
the diesels, are reliable performers. Running costs and prices are
pleasingly low, too.

Volkswagen Eos convertible review - CarBuyer
The stylish Eos is one the best looking coupe-cabriolets in its class. And
now it has been improved with a redesign inspired by the latest Volkswagen
Golf. Despite the new look, the Eos is still every bit as well built as
before, and it still has its complex five-piece folding roof which
effectively makes the Eos two cars in one -- a stylish hard top when the
weather is bad, and a spacious open convertible when the sun shines.
