Volkswagen Sharan car camping / microcamper review

Boot size (length 208cm & height 113cm)
Storage – very good
Comfort (interior)
Comfort (driving)
Off-road driving
Consumption
EURO NCAP safety rating (2019)
ADAC rating 2.1/5 (lower = better)

Summary

The VW Sharan strikes a good balance between size and comfort. Actually, it’s one of the biggest MPV’s out there. If boot size is your primary criteria – you can’t go wrong with a Sharan. The car drives nicely too and offers good comfort in the front for the driver and passenger. It’s not the best car to take off the road completely – but you can take it down a good enough mud road without any big problems. A very good car camping / microcamping conversion candidate, unless you are planning to drive through forests and very much offroad.
VW Sharan is one of the top cars in our 30+ cars for car camping table.
