Volkswagen Sharan at the Geneva International Motor Show

With over 600,000 units sold, Volkswagen’s Sharan is the favourite vehicle of countless families all over Europe. Coming now, with a world premiere at the Geneva International Motor Show (4th to 14th March), is a completely new generation of this best seller. Equipped for the first time with sliding doors in the back, the 2010 Sharan has been enhanced in every area.

Every screw, every exterior and interior part and all of the technology, including the TDI and TSI engines (103kW / 140PS to 147kW / 200PS) and transmission systems (DSG optional) – is new. Sharan is offering world-record performance in fuel efficiency: at 5.3 litres per 100km (51,4 mpg), the 140PS Sharan 2.0 TDI achieves lower fuel consumption than any other MPV in this class.

The hallmark of the new Sharan is a complete design concept that includes the extremely flexible EasyFold seating system (up to seven easily adjustable seats), high-end quality, uncompromising safety (seven airbags, Light Assist automatic main beam control, bi-xenon headlights with LED daytime running and position light) and numerous clever details. Also new to this generation of Sharan are adaptive chassis control (DCC) and a level regulating system. This comfortable multi-purpose vehicle in the upper B segment of the market has been tailored to families with two or more children and high-mileage business users with a need for extra space.

The new Sharan’s drive and handling matches the levels of comfort and dynamic response provided by the excellent Passat. Cutting edge entertainment systems, a huge, electrically operated panoramic sliding roof and a powerful 3-zone climate control system guarantee great travelling conditions at any time of the year. Available in Trendline, Comfortline and Highline versions, even the base model of the Sharan is supplied with features such as semi-automatic air-conditioning (‘Climatic’) and radio/CD system (‘RCD 210’).

As the only vehicle of its class to offer this, the third generation of this MPV will again be available with four-wheel drive (Sharan 2.0 TDI 4Motion with 140PS). In the first markets where it is available orders for the new Volkswagen can be placed from as early as the end of March.
