The new Volkswagen Sharan is the ideal people carrier, with the capacity to carry seven as well as a large amount of luggage. With Adaptive Chassis Control, this versatile MPV drives like a smaller car, having great body control and accurate steering.
The Volkswagen Sharan has a maximum five star safety rating thanks to stability control, a tyre pressure monitoring system and seven airbags as standard across the range. Wherever you go, you and your family are sure to be protected.
Created to appeal to families as well as the executive market, the seven-seater Volkswagen Sharan has all the quality and style that a person would expect from this leading German manufacturer. The exterior has a solidly built feel and a similarly sleek, understated front end as its cousins in the Volkswagen family. Sliding rear doors make access easy and they can be motorised as an extra option
Everything inside the Volkswagen Sharan is thoughtfully designed and hard-wearing. The flexible seating and luggage space can be configured in numerous ways. With body coloured door mirrors and integrated LED indicators as standard, plus electric windows all round, 12V sockets, and USB and ipod connections, the Volkswagen Sharan has plenty of luxurious touches. The SE has some additional features such as Bluetooth connectivity, self-sealing tyres, and a multifunction computer. The SEL model comes with six seats rather than seven and has smart leather upholstery. It offers an extra level of comfort in the form of cruise control, a panoramic sunroof, and a CD changer.
The brand new Sharan SEL comes with Discover Navigation as standard and also available as an option on the SE model.
This MPV is very economical to run and has impressive road handling too. Lighter and more responsive than its predecessors, the new Sharan feels hardly any different to drive than a standard sized car. The steering is nicely weighted and responsive, whilst the body roll usually associated with MPVs is minimal.
The new Volkswagen Sharan has the family budget in mind when it comes to the choice of engines, combining great performance with low running costs. Four different BlueMotion engines are available, ranging from a 1.4 petrol version to a 2 litre diesel producing 184 PS.
BlueMotion technology uses a range of methods, such as cutting the engine when stationary, to keep fuel consumption and harmful emissions down. There is also a punchy 2 litre,150 PS diesel engine available on the SE and SEL models only.
The brand new Sharan model does 0 - 63 in 9.3 seconds.
Having been awarded the highest five star rating in NCAP crash tests, the latest Volkswagen Sharan has superb credentials. The range of passive safety features now includes nine airbags, a curtain airbag system for all three rows of seats, and there is even an airbag for the driver's knees.
The new automatic fatigue detection system monitors the driver's movements, and the new city emergency braking function applies the brakes automatically if a collision is detected at a low speed and even accelerates to avoid being hit from behind, as long as the road ahead is clear.
