New Volkswagen Sharan

A spacious MPV with good looks and plenty of character, the Volkswagen Sharan makes an ideal family car.

Exterior design

Roomy and extremely versatile, from the outside the Volkswagen Sharan comes across as a striking people carrier with sleek contours and aerodynamic styling to maximise efficiency. The sliding rear doors, which pivot forward by 20 degrees, help to ensure that getting in and out is exceptionally easy. This is especially good news when you are transporting a family with young children, or if any of your passengers have mobility problems. Access is also aided by the electric tailgate, which opens and closes automatically. Body-coloured bumpers, door mirrors and handles help to create a sporty appearance, as do the roof rails, alloy wheels and optional bi-Xenon headlights. A panoramic sunroof is also available on the top-end model.

Interior design

The Sharan transports up to seven adults in luxurious comfort and refinement.

Well-appointed and spacious with plenty of legroom, the cabin also features numerous storage solutions - and the full-sized seats can be easily configured to provide the optimal amount of room to accommodate passengers and cargo. The Sharan's Multi Device Interface makes connecting external devices simple, while the satellite navigation and entertainment system utilises a clear five-inch touch-screen. Dual-zone climate control, electric windows and optional keyless entry all add to the overall package.


A total of five engines are available across the range, each offering something different. The most efficient option is the BlueMotion Technology 2.0 TDI, offering 113bhp and 50.4mpg combined. Drivers looking for a little more performance can opt for the 2.0 litre TSI petrol unit, which is capable of delivering 197bhp and taking the MPV from 0-60mph in a little over eight seconds. Adaptive Chassis Control is also available on the Sharan and allows the driver to adjust the comfort and sportiness of the ride, while the car's four-link rear suspension ensures a smooth and stable ride.

Technology and Safety

Innovative technology is in evidence across the range, with features such as Park Assist and power-assisted steering available to make the ride as comfortable and effortless as possible. A raft of safety measures has also been built into the design, with multiple airbags, ABS and Volkswagen's Electronic Stabilisation Control there to offer additional protection. The car's laser-welded body shell has been specifically designed for strength and to absorb energy in the event of an impact.
