With an interior that can be almost endlessly configured, space for the entire clan, and innovative features to make your drive safer and more fun, the Sharan is much more than just a people carrier.
Sharan’s muscular headlights aren’t just for decoration, they light your way with strength and precision. The optional bi-xenon headlights work dynamically through corners to illuminate your way as you turn. With the optional Light Assist the dipped beam headlight adapts its strength based on your speed, so when travelling faster than 37mph the lights change to a longer cone. Light Assist will also dim the headlights in the face of oncoming traffic, so you won’t need to constantly change manually. As well as the bi-xenon headlights, you can also opt for LED daytime running lights to improve visibility whether it’s day or night.
Having a free hand, especially with children and shopping bags in tow, is not a common luxury. That’s why we’ve fitted the Sharan with optional electric sliding doors. Simply press the control on your keys, or with the touch of a button when you’re inside the car, and the doors will open or close. The days of struggling with the handle and door slamming are over.
We’ve considered every angle to give the Sharan an attractive interior that can cope with the strains of carrying the whole family. The durable Alcantara seat covers can deal with scrapes, spills and scuffs while the six-way adjustable driver’s seat offers you comfort for the journey ahead. Attractive decorative inlays on the dashboard and front door trim come as standard in all models. For an added personal touch, you can opt for the ‘Nappa’ or ‘Vienna’ leather packages to lend your interior an even more sophisticated profile.
If you opt for the seven-seater package you’ll open a host of seating possibilities in your Sharan. The third row of the package consists of two seats which can be folded to create more space. It also comes with a warning lamp and an acoustic signal so you can be sure that the passengers in the back row have fastened their seatbelts.
You can opt for either one or two child seats when you pick up your Sharan. The seats are suitable for all children up to three years old and are securely fastened in by ISOFIX connections. The seats not only add comfort for your little ones, but also extra peace of mind for you.
Knowing what lies ahead gives peace of mind, especially in heavy traffic. Adaptive Cruise Control uses sensors in the front of the Sharan to keep you a safe distance away from the car ahead, even at motorway speeds. Adaptive Cruise Control also helps you in traffic jams by stopping and starting the Sharan automatically. In the event of a nasty surprise, rest assured. The Front Assist with City Emergency Braking gives an audible and visual warning of a collision and lends a helping hand by applying the emergency brake.
The optional Lane Assist departure warning helps prevent accidents by telling you when you are straying out of your lane. If you drift out of the lane, the Sharan will provide a warning by gently counter-steering the car. When activated, the system will automatically kick in at speeds over 40mph, and will switch off when you go below 37mph or turn on your indicator.
