and dimensions

Thanks to the turbocharged and diesel engines, every of the new Sharan has gained significant agility. Completely new styling this. Its concise front and contours, in particular, plus its wheel arches, create a new street presence. The vehicle’s proportions also has a more effect, with the new model at metres in length being 22 longer than the old Sharan. Its has also grown, adding 9.2 (measured from door to door handle at the front) to now 1.9 metres. At the same time its is now 1.2 centimetres lower, at 1.72 The result is a fascinating interplay of and a very powerful overall The reduced height, however, not come at the expense of interior

The third generation Sharan is the first MPV range to be designed by de Silva (Group Chief and Klaus Bischoff (Brand’s Designer) based totally on the new design DNA matrix. The design of the body, which is both and functional, is thus epitomised by horizontal lines. It is fresh, yet not dictated by any transient fashion. The aim of the is rather to create with its proportions and minimal lines an basis for giving the body an energetic look.

Front Following the new DNA, the Sharan reflects the new era Volkswagen design, in the typical VW front end with its emphasis on horizontal planes and a defined shape. A very look is created by the gloss bars across the radiator the integrated chrome clips and the VW also in chrome. The double (with daytime running in corporated into the V-contour of the can be ordered both in the standard and versions.

The visually dominant here are the concise roof-edge the very deep tailgate height: 0.67 metres) and the large rear lights, match the headlamps and also an unmistakable appearance at night. The itself can optionally be opened and electrically.

Side profile: A feature of the Sharan is its smooth profile. The background to this is in designing the Sharan, De Silva and put particular emphasis on the homogeneity of the surfaces, as allied to the relatively wheelbase of 2.92 metres and the overall length it makes the of the sliding doors perfect.

Volkswagen has developed a new configuration of the interior for the Sharan. It a choice of three base interiors with five, six or seats. Thanks to the new EasyFold concept, the individual seats of the and third row no longer need to be out in order to make use of the vehicle’s flexibility, but instead get stowed in the floor using an easy-to-operate mechanism. Like the front the ones in the second row can also be forwards and backwards, while tilt can be adjusted by 20 degrees. The rear seat headrests are highly practical and safe. Not can they can be fully extended in to provide optimum protection for tall passengers, but also down almost flush the top of the seat backs when not in

First row of seats (driver and passenger): One of the great strengths of the two generations of the Sharan was the upright, sitting position of driver and passenger. The development engineers improved comfort on the new model further. While keeping the height almost identical, has been done by making the position sportier. In conjunction the extremely clear and elegant and the positions of the central armrest and lever, the best possible sitting and driving position is assured at all times. For the first a 12-way elec trically seat, including driver’s memory function, is now also as an option for the Sharan.

Second row of The ergonomic design of the seats has completely revised. Take, as an the second row, i.e. the back seats: this individual seats that can be 160mm back and forth and now provide much more thanks to, among other the height of the seats being by 58mm. The internal height, has stayed at the same level. An im point for families is that the two seats can again be ordered an integrated child seat. offer younger passengers safety and comfort. The seats are for children aged three and The seat’s surface is raised for the via a simple mechanism, while seat sides hold snugly in place. Side on the backrests (secured to the head guides) also ensure they remain seated in the position.

It is also very easy to down the second row and thus to a level surface with the floor: simply unlock the via a handle on the top of the back rest, it into the EasyFold position and let it down into the floor.

row of seats: Getting into the row of seats has been made easier. Firstly, the sliding open extremely wide second ly, the outer seats on the row can be pushed forward and tilted. The system has simply been here with an equally Easy Entry function, creates ample room to the two additional seats in the Sharan for adults. In fact, while the two seats in MPVs of this are generally re served for children, the wheelbase (75mm longer at metres) means that for journeys these seats in the are comfortable for adults as well.

area: No matter which of the in the back are folded down, is produced here is always a level surface for loading in Even if just the third row of is folded down via the easyto- single-hand mechanism, that provides a space 1.3 metres Loaded up to the bottom edge of the the luggage capacity is 711 litres. to an easily fitted mesh the Sharan can alternatively be loaded up to the roof without any safety The luggage capacity then to 1.167 litres.

The seats in the second row are folded via an equally easy-to-use folding This also produces a luggage space, which up to the backrests of the front seats is 2.1 long. With the luggage extended to this maximum the capacity provided when up to the roof is 2,297 litres. using a cargo management that has also been developed, the luggage can be securely in place. The system consists of a net and two telescopic rails, which get in the sidewalls. It also provides retaining elements, allowing such as bags to be held in

Dashboard: The basic layout of the is a completely new interpretation of that in the model, albeit that the key in such as the light switches and controls, are in practically identical only now much easier to see and The entire dashboard area a strictly horizontal division, a precision- made décor running from side to between the upper and lower All of the materials are also of a quality by the competition. This is shown, for by the frequent use of metal on the vents and surrounds.

Centre console: The console has been consciously out’ a long way towards the lever, thus making its even easier to operate. It the various audio, video and systems, plus arranged these the Climatic or Climatronic air controls. The entire control for these systems has been ned appreciably higher. All of the elements can be found more quickly and are intuitive to operate. For the navigation (RNS 315 and RNS 510) and premium system (RCD 510) a display is used.

Located the display and ideally positioned so it can be easily reached is the switch for the warning lights. Above it, as in the Sharan, in all models from the up is a lockable storage compartment. The level of the centre console another row of switches for more used functions, such as rarily deactivating ESP or the Park system. Where the Sharan has ordered with the ‘Keyless (automatic locking and starting available on this model for the time), the engine starter is located directly in front of the lever on the centre console. in its customary position between the is the ‘handbrake lever’. However, it is now no a lever but as the handbrake is activated right across the range an operated switch.

The new MPVs are more closely aligned to car range than they in the previous model. The speedometer and rev the two central round instruments, are and elegant, both with rims. The steering wheel and column levers will be to Volkswagen drivers from models such as the Golf, Scirocco and Passat CC. Despite totally family friendly, the trim just like the front seat area has been given a sporty
