The latest car that got tested by the Brits at Autocar during their 90 seconds review video is the 2010 Volkswagen Sharan, offering a verdict that also applies to the new Seat Alhambra, as the only differences between the two are mostly in terms of design.
This particular 2010 Volkswagen Sharan version shown in the review video is the 2.0 TDI which is priced at 22,500 GBP and uses a 4.-cylinder 1986cc turbo-diesel engine to generate 138 bhp @ 4,200 rpm and 236 lb-ft of torque @ 2,500 rpm.
Power is put to the ground via a six-speed manual transmission, which in part enables the 2010 Volkswagen Sharan to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in 10.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 120 mph.
The car’s weight is 1470 Kg, and in terms of efficiency the 2010 Volkswagen Sharan will return 51.3 mph (combine cycle/UK rating) while CO2 emissions are of 138 grams per Km.
