Volkswagen Sharan now available to order

Order books for the all-new Volkswagen Sharan MPV are now open, ahead of first UK deliveries in October.

After the unveiling of the first generation model in 1995, the seven-seat people carrier has been refreshed. It features improved specification as well as a range of engines, which all meet EU6 standards and are up to 15 per cent more efficient than those they replace.

The current model went on sale in November 2010 and was the first Sharan to benefit from an all-new EasyFold seating concept and side sliding doors. Both of these key user-friendly features are carried over to the new model, along with a host of other changes.

Inside, the new Sharan gets new upholstery, a new steering wheel and the brand new second-generation colour touchscreen MIB infotainment system, which are fitted across the range of S, SE and SEL models.

Also standard across the range are an Automatic Post-Collision Braking System, Bluetooth phone connection and three-zone Climatronic air conditioning.

SE trim gains chrome roof rails and tinted rear glass, front and rear parking sensors and cruise control among other items, while the range-topping SEL trim now features Front Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control, panoramic sunroof, Alcantara upholstery and Discover Navigation with CarNet Guide and Inform. A new SE Navigation model will also join the range - based on the mid-range SE trim it adds Discover Navigation with CarNet Guide and Inform.

Four engines are available in the new Sharan, including one petrol and three diesels, ranging in power from 114 to 183bhp. All power units are EU6 compliant, more efficient and have improved CO2 emissions.

The entry-level 2.0-litre TDI with 115nhp is available in S trim only, while buyers of mid-range models will have the choice of a 1.4-litre TSI and a 2.0-litre TDI, both of which produce 149bhp. At the top is a 2.0-litre TDI with 183bhp. All engine, aside from the 114bhp TDI, are available with a choice of six-speed manual or six-speed DSG gearboxes.
