Pricing for Volkswagen’s Sharan model in the UK has just been announced. VW dealerships throughout the country can now accept orders. Four equipment levels are offered: S, SE, SEL and Executive.
They’re all seven-seaters except for Executive, which features six individual seats with armrests and Vienna leather as standard.
Standard equipment for the new Sharan includes ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) with HBA (Hydraulic Brake Assist) and ESP (Electronic Stabilization Program), a curtain airbag system for all three rows of seats, side airbags for the first two rows of seats and driver and passenger airbags as well as an additional airbag to protect the driver’s knees, an eight-speaker DAB digital radio, 2Zone electronic climate control and an iPod interface.
The vehicle is equipped with a new EasyFold seating concept that makes it possible for the individual seats of the second and third rows to be folded in its floor. In addition, the front seats as well as the second row adjust longitudinally and over backrest angles of up to 20 degrees.
The second row of seats has been installed with an intelligent folding mechanism that provides access to the rear seats. When the vehicle uses a five-seat configuration, the luggage space is at 1,339 liters, and this can be increased to 2,430 liters when all the seats are folded.
The MPV’s engine range includes two petrol units (150 hp 1.4 TSI and 200 hp 2.0 TSI) and two diesel powerplants (140 hp 2.0 TDI and 170 hp 2.0 TDI).
Sharan range has a starting price of 22,980 pounds ($36,500) and this can only go up to as high as 30,580 pounds ($48,580). The first customers will be receiving their vehicles next month.
