After this morning's photo reveal, the 2015 Volkswagen Sharan facelift has been official introduced.

There's not much to talk about in terms of styling revisions as the facelifted Sharan looks just about the same as its predecessor, with the exception of the new LED taillights, Jakarta alloy wheels and a couple fresh paints (Crimson Red Metallic, Hudson Bay Blue Metallic).

On the inside there are new infotainment systems providing support for Apple Car Play, Google Android Auto. Customers will be able to choose from a 5-inch Composition Color, 6.5-inch Composition Media and the more expensive 6.5-inch Discovery Media with navigation. MirrorLink support has been added and Volkswagen says they installed faster processors which have made the systems quicker in touchscreen operation, route calculation as well as when booting up.

More importantly, the revised Sharan has gained an all Euro 6-compliant engine lineup. On the gasoline side, there's a 1.4 TSI with 150 HP (110 kW) and a 2.0 TSI with 220 HP (162 kW) while diesel lineup includes a 1.6 TDI with 115 HP (85 kW) and a couple of 2.0 TDIs with 150 HP (110 kW) and 184 HP (135 kW). A six-speed manual gearbox is standard but an optional six-speed DSG is available for all of them, with the exception of the 1.6 TDI unit.

Volkswagen has also upgraded the safety and assistance system offerings which now includes standard Automatic Post-Collision Braking System. At an additional cost, the 2015 Sharan can be equipped with Front Assist with integrated City Emergency Braking, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Assist, Blind Spot Monitor and third generation Park Assist.

The 2015 VW Sharan will premiere next month at the Geneva Motor Show before going on sale in April, with deliveries programmed to commence in the summer.
