Self Study Program 445 – The Sharan 2011

VAG SSP 445. The new Sharan combines maximum variability with the simplest handling while providing outstanding comfort and attractive design. It sets standards with its low fuel consumption, top quality and the highest degree of safety.

As a family car, the new Sharan continues to set standards in its third generation.

In addition to the new body structure, the Sharan features an electrically operated tailgate, a large panoramic sunroof as well as sliding doors that allow easy access to the rear seats for the whole family.

Thanks to the greater track width, extended wheelbase and greater vehicle length and width, the interior has become more spacious. This increases comfort and practicality and also extends the range of available equipment.

Curtain airbags for occupants in both the front and the rear, a driver and a front passenger airbag, a knee airbag on the driver’s side and belt tensioners for all seats meet the highest standards of vehicle safety.

For the first time, side airbags in combination with belt tensioners are now optionally available for the second row of seats.

The latest generation of highly efficient, eco-friendly and lightweight TSI and TDI-CR engines provide substantial reductions in fuel consumption. The engines employ BlueMotion Technology, which includes a start/stop system, brake energy recuperation and, for the diesel engines, the Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) exhaust gas aftertreatment system.

The second-generation ParkAssist has been thoroughly enhanced and now facilitates semi-automatic parking.
