Volkswagen Sharan 2.0 TDI Bluemotion Review
The Folks Wagon

Introduction

The second generation of VW’s largest people mover Sharan was introduced almost two years ago and it immediately gained fanfare globally. Spaciousness, refinement and practicality were common words that were used to describe the replacement to what was a 15-year old model more commonly associated with a commercial people mover than a family hauler.

Fast forward two years and there’s nothing much that has changed with the Sharan. It’s still the same functional and utilitarian Folks Wagon, but Volkswagen Singapore has finally introduced the diesel variant. And with a similar pricing to the petrol version, coupled with just a slight premium on the road tax, is the oil burner a sensible choice?

Yazz is very professional. He advised me on when to sell the car and checked in with me later. His dealer, Sam, was awesome. An understanding and kind man. He went the extra mile and accommodated our timing.
