2010 Volkswagen Sharan.

Equipped for the first time with sliding doors in the back, the 2010 Sharan has been enhanced in every area. Every screw, every exterior and interior part and all of the technology, including the TDI and TSI engines (103kW / 140PS to 147kW / 200PS) and transmission systems (DSG optional) – is new. Sharan is offering world-record performance in fuel efficiency: at 5.3 litres per 100km (51,4 mpg), the 140PS Sharan 2.0 TDI achieves lower fuel consumption than any other MPV in this class.

The hallmark of the new Sharan is a complete design concept that includes the extremely flexible EasyFold seating system (up to seven easily adjustable seats), high-end quality, uncompromising safety (seven airbags, Light Assist automatic main beam control, bi-xenon headlights with LED daytime running and position light) and numerous clever details. Also new to this generation of Sharan are adaptive chassis control (DCC) and a level regulating system. This comfortable multi-purpose vehicle in the upper B segment of the market has been tailored to families with two or more children and high-mileage business users with a need for extra space.

The new Sharan’s drive and handling matches the levels of comfort and dynamic response provided by the excellent Passat. Cutting edge entertainment systems, a huge, electrically operated panoramic sliding roof and a powerful 3-zone climate control system guarantee great travelling conditions at any time of the year. Available in Trendline, Comfortline and Highline versions, even the base model of the Sharan is supplied with features such as semi-automatic air-conditioning (‘Climatic’) and radio/CD system (‘RCD 210’). As the only vehicle of its class to offer this, the third generation of this MPV will again be available with four-wheel drive (Sharan 2.0 TDI 4Motion with 140PS).

In the first markets where it is available orders for the new Volkswagen can be placed from as early as the end of March.

It's pretty Obvious what the Volkswagen logo is (a V over a W in a blue background, sorounded by a circle). It's origin is rather mundane though. The logo was the result of an office competition to see come up with a logo. The winner of the competition (who won 50 Marks for his troubles) was an engineer named Franz Reimspiess (the same man who perfected the engine for the Beetle in the 1930's).

Carlos's comments

I like Volkswagens in general, but the Sharan does nothing for me. Granted, I am not the target, but I just think this does not offer anything new (at least visually). I do like the interior better, but it just looks tired overall. (I also know I have this vehicle filed under SUVs, but I am not starting a minivan section on Cartype)
