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?

These guys are fast, responding the very next day with offers and more importantly higher than what was offered by the dealer whom I am buying my car from.
