Driver assistance systems are of crucial importance for a long-distance, family vehicle like the Sharan. As such, all trim levels for the updated Sharan include the “Lane Assist” system as standard, as well as the “Front Assist” area monitoring system, which warns the driver when getting too close to the vehicle in front and applies the brakes within system limits.
To ensure maximum safety throughout this dark and rainy time of year, the Sharan also has an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, daytime running lights and a rain sensor for the windscreen wipers. A multi-functional steering wheel is also available as standard.
Powerful and efficient turbo engines
The highest performance level is the new 130-kW / 177-PS, 2.0 TDI four-cylinder diesel engine, closely followed by the 110-kW / 150-PS, 2.0 TDI and the equally powerful 1.4 TSI four-cylinder petrol engine. This is now fitted with a gasoline particulate filter (GPF). All the engines meet the latest Euro 6d-TEMP emission standards. The engine’s power is applied to the road via a 6-speed manual or 6/7-speed DSG gearbox, depending on the trim level and power unit selected. All TDI engines are also available with 4Motion four-wheel drive as an option.
The new Sharan “Black Style” special model
Exclusive, dynamic and black: the new “Black Style” special model sees Volkswagen enhance the Sharan range. It can now be ordered with the Comfort and Highline trim levels. A new black roof, with black roof rails and the “Black Style” logo, available exclusively with this special model, provide an individual, elegant appearance. The interior is equally impressive: in particular, the comfortable two-tone leather seats in matching Bonanza Titanium Black emphasise the exclusive interior features.
The “Active Lighting System” provides more light in the dark. It consists of “Dynamic Light Assist” and the so-called “dynamic cornering light with predictive controls”. If requested, “Dynamic Light Assist” switches to main beam at speeds of more than 60 km/h and main beam then remains active. The LED modules are controlled using a camera in such a way that they provide optimal illumination of the road, without blinding other road users. The “dynamic cornering light with predictive controls” improves illumination of corners.
An overview of other “Black Style” features:
- “Odessa” 17-inch alloy wheels
- Tinted rear side windows and rear windscreen, which absorb up to 65 percent of the light
- Black mirror caps
- Black window trims
The Sharan “Black Style” is available from 42,375 Euro in the Comfortline trim level and is available exclusively in Germany.
