Volkswagen’s new Sharan will cost from £22,980, the company has confirmed.
Buyers can choose from two diesel and two petrol engines including the entry level 1.4-litre TSI with 148bhp and 167g/km CO2 emissions. For £31,680 you can buy the range topping 2.0 TDI DSG with 168bhp and 154g/km CO2 emissions.
Most engines will be badged Bluemotion and are fitted with stop-start and battery regeneration systems as standard.
A choice of four trim levels is available: S, SE, SEL and Executive. All feature seven seats as standard except for the Executive, which has six individual leather seats.
The new Sharan features its easy fold seating concept, which allows the seats of the second and third rows to be folded into the floor.
All models get ABS, ESP, curtain airbags, digital radio and iPod interface. VW’s second-generation park assist can also be specified, which steers itself into a space.
