2011 Volkswagen Sharan: First Photos of Next Generation 7-Seater MPV

We weren't suppose to see the all-new VW Sharan before the opening of the Geneva Motor Show tomorrow, but the first official pictures of the German firm's seven-seater MPV were leaked onto the internet today.

On the outside, the new Sharan adopts Volkswagen's new design language with crisper lines and a wide, horizontal front grille.

The interior has been thoroughly updated and looks far more upscale and modern that the outgoing model, but that shouldn't come as a surprise as the first-generation of the Sharan (redesigned in 2000) was introduced way back in 1995...

Volkswagen has expanded the Sharan by a whopping 220 mm in length (now 4,850 mm) and 92 mm in width (now 1,902 mm) while the wheelbase has also grown by 75mm to 2,920mm improving interior space, both for passengers and luggage.

The boot is said to offer a minimum capacity of to 711 liters and a maximum of 2,297 liters with the last two rows of seats folded.

The engine range has been completely overhauled and now includes the firm's latest turbocharged gasoline and petrol units including the 1.4-liter and 2.0-liter TSI petrols with 140HP and 200HP as well as the 2.0-liter TDI with 140 and 170 HP.

This type of car is not my cup of tea, but this will save jobs at Autoeuropa as the Eos and the Scirocco are not enough to keep the plant going.

That looks so much better than, say, a Routan. I like the greenhouse... reminds me of the Up!

Decently sized, too... probably more room inside than most three-row crossovers. Much better fuel economy, too.

This new Sharan should replace the Routan ASAP here in the states.
