Plenty of space, a host of innovative safety features, and class-leading connectivity make the Sharan a great choice for all the family. 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.

The Easy Open boot makes life even more convenient. When approaching the boot with a heavy object there’s no longer any need to set it down and search for the keys at the bottom of your bag. Make a slight kicking action beneath the rear of the boot and, hey presto, the lid will open. The keyless access sensor will always recognise you if you have the keys in your possession.
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.
Constantly find yourself struggling to fit everything into the boot? Never fear, the flexible seating in the Sharan really comes into its own when you need extra luggage space. With the Easy Fold function you can fold down the third and second row of seats, meaning that you’ll have a loading volume of 2,297 litres in the 7-seater, or 2,430 litres if you have a 5-seater.

The optional Climatronic air conditioning system allows the driver, front passenger, and rear passengers to each set their own temperature according to their preferences. Climatronic’s indirect ventilation mode ensures a draught-free flow of air throughout the car.

It also features a CD drive, can read SD cards, receives FM radio and has an AUX-IN socket for your devices. The ‘Composition’ option comes with the same features but with added Bluetooth connectivity and an enlarged 16.5cm touchscreen.
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.
Adaptive Cruise Control
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 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.
Keeping an eye on your blind spot
Staying aware of your blind spot can be a tricky task. The Sharan comes with a helpful blind spot sensor so you know if something is there, even if you can’t see it. If your Sharan comes too close to another vehicle, the sensor will warn you via an audible and visual warning. The system will even help lower the probability of an accident if the driver fails to react by applying the brakes.
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.
