Yes, the towbar should be the same so will fit :)

Wiring wise it would probably be best to renew the wiring, the sharan is a little different at the back and the standard wiring kit is cheap enough. Bypass relays should always be used!

Don't forget you'll need to fit the crash-bar you remove from the sharan back to the Galaxy in place of the towbar to keep it secure in a rear impact (also a legal requirement)
