Volkswagen’s spacious and luxurious MPV leads the way in style, practicality and equipment in the large MPV class. Seven adults can travel in comfort in the Sharan, and you will still have space for luggage in the boot. Sharan’s four trim levels start with the S, followed by the SE, SE Nav and SEL.
The quiet elegance of the Sharan belies its practicality. The polished chrome grille and chrome window surrounds complement the smooth lines of the bonnet and side panels. Alloy wheels and tinted rear windows on higher spec models add to the smart appearance of the Sharan. Tinted glass has a practical dimension too, as it reduces glare by up to 65 percent, and makes life easier if you are carrying babies or toddlers in the car.
Sliding rear doors give easy access to the cabin, and are particularly helpful in narrow parking spaces. Inside the cabin there is a luxurious feel thanks to the sense of space and the superior quality materials used throughout. Air conditioning with three zone climate control is fitted as standard to keep you and your passengers comfortable in all areas of the vehicle. Seating in the Sharan can be reconfigured to allow the space to be used in a variety of ways, depending on how many passengers and how much luggage or other cargo you need to transport. The dashboard has a high-quality finish and is carefully designed so that everything you need is at your fingertips. Some of the other features added on the SE trim and above include a leather steering wheel, electrically adjustable driver’s seat with lumbar support, and cruise control.
The Sharan is available with a choice of petrol or diesel engines, and BlueMotion technology helps to enhance fuel efficiency. If you are looking for the most efficient engine choice, the 2.0-litre TDI diesel, either 113bhp or 148bhp will give you a very respectable 56.5mpg as well as great performance. You can choose from manual and automatic gearbox options.
Safety and technology
Infotainment can be accessed via a colour touchscreen fitted on all models, while the SE Nav and SEL editions benefit from the Discover Navigation system and a three-year Car-Net Guide and Inform subscription.
The Sharan scored five stars in Euro NCAP safety tests, and has a wealth of features to keep you and your passengers protected, including ESC, ABS and airbags. Younger passengers travel in safety thanks to ISOFIX child seat attachments fitted in the second row, and automatic door locking.
