VW has opened the order books for its all-new Sharan MPV. Prices for the newcomer start from £22,980 for the entry-level S 1.4-litre TSI petrol model. The 1.4-litre model replaces the previous 2.0-litre S, and costs £1,550 more than the outgoing car. The cheapest diesel model starts at £24,320, rising right up to the £30,580 Executive model
There are two petrol and two diesel models to choose from, and all except the DSG-only 2.0-litre petrol come with a choice of manual or DSG twin clutch gearboxes. There are four trim levels available: S, SE, SEL and Executive. All feature seven seats as standard except for Executive which has six individual, leather-trimmed seats.
The Sharan also features EasyFold seating, which allows the individual seats of the second and third rows to be stowed in the vehicle floor, rather than having to be removed from the car when not needed. All models also get twin rear sliding doors.
