The 2019 VW Sharan is going to be “one to watch” minivan next season. After a big scandal in the US, this vehicle will bring a lot of updates to regain the reputation of the carmaker. Well, it is not going to be easy with big competition in Europe, where Sharan is very popular. However, engineers and designers will try to fix most things buyers didn’t like on the previous edition.
Highlights of the next 2019 VW Sharan will be its spacious trunk, equipment, and reliability. After a revisit, downsides, such as handling, should be improved. In the matter of fact, the drivetrain of the MPV was its major problem. Reliable and durable unit lacked support from other parts. If the 2019 Sharan adds sportier impression for drive and features such as noise cancelation, it will be one of the best minivans we will find on the market.
2019 VW Sharan Specs
As most European vehicles, the minivan will offer both petrol and diesel engines. The base models are using a 1.4-liter four-cylinder gasoline unit as the source of power. This mill can produce 150 hp and 185 lb-ft of torque. Direct-injection system is standard for both gasoline engines. This is an excellent solution for urban areas and everyday commuting.
But, when you come out on the highway, you will seek more power and acceleration. That is exactly what a 2.0-liter diesel engine is offering. It has the same amount of horsepower as the base model, but its torque rises to 280 lb-ft. That twisting power makes a difference when you step on the throttle.
The last option is a 2.0-liter petrol displacement. The major downside it the price of 2019 VW Sharan with this unit. Furthermore, maintenance cost will raise the stakes, so a big gasoline unit is not so economical. But, it is powerful. If you need your Sharan for towing, then 220 ponies would definitely be helpful. In combination with a DSG transmission, owners of the model with this engine will feel special driving the minivan. It gets the 2019 Volkswagen Sharan closer to their new rivals for crossover SUV segment.
