the tdi versions of all cars have the 1.9tdi engines from vw,about 90% of tdi ford galaxy's are vw sharans,
some ecu's wiring and badges are fords.probably the same with the alhambra.
best to go for a manuel tdi,as there does seem to be a lot of problems with the auto's across the ranges,
my old mk2 ghia tdi was good for nearly 60 mpg.the petrol versions are a tad juicy and cost more on the r/f/tax.
remember these cars are nearly 2 tonnes.

Watch out for air con issues and front suspension
forgot,also if going for a tdi,make sure the auxhillary booster heater works.

when working correctly sounds like a jet engine.
its to help produce heat in the winter for engine/occupants as these vw engines are very efficient they do not produce enough waste heat for the cabin,so if working within 5 mins of starting car on a cold day you should have heat into the cabin.
on a mk 1 iirc they work 5 degrees or below,on a mk2 10 degrees.hth.
