The dynamic new Volkswagen Scirocco doesn't compromise. From the sleek body lines, to the distinctly sporty ride, this luxury sports coupe is a true driver's car with a surprisingly affordable price tag. The Adaptive Chassis Control allows you to switch effortlessly between comfort, normal and sports modes for a drive that suits you, whilst the first class safety features keep you and your passengers out of danger.
The new Scirocco has acquired a loyal following since its launch in 2008. This car successfully combines sports car styling with practical features and a high quality build.
The model has a unique look with a strong, compact shape, a curved rear, and stylish details. The door pulls have a triangular shape, the headlights have an aggressive slant, and the LED daytime running lights add to the head-turning effect.
There are three different models to choose from: the Scirocco GT, the R-Line, and the standard edition. The GT edition comes with leather upholstery, Adaptive Chassis Control, and more powerful engine options. The R-Line is a special edition, which sits low on the road and has 19 inch alloy wheels. It has unique bumpers, radiator grill and side sills, and badging on the wings to complete the dynamic styling.
A souped-up sporty version of the Golf , this model shares the same understated elegance, high standards, and practical approach.
Some of the stylish touches include sports seats in the front, brushed aluminium surrounds on the instrument panel, front footwell illumination, and a multifunction leather steering wheel. A Bluetooth connection for a hands-free phone, multifunction computer, touch screen navigation, and radio system come as standard too.
As the sports car of the Volkswagen family, it does not have as much room for rear passengers or luggage as its less shapely relatives. Nevertheless, there are 312 litres of boot space with the rear seats up, and 1006 litres when they are folded.
The standard Volkswagen Scirocco has a choice of two petrol engines, or it can be fitted with the highly efficient BlueMotion 2 litre diesel engine, which uses a range of ingenious methods to conserve fuel and keep emissions down.
The BlueMotion option is available on all three Scirocco models. Both the GT and the R-Line have more powerful 2 litre diesel engines on offer, with the mightiest turbocharged version, kicking out 265PS, only available in the R-Line.
Precision steering, excellent grip, and plenty of power under the bonnet ensure that the Scirocco gives an impressive performance. The Adaptive Chassis Control of the Scirocco GT brings an extra sporty dimension to the car's performance.
The most powerful engine does 0-62 mph in an impressive 6 seconds with a top speed of 155 mph. The best fuel consumption is achieved by the BlueMotion engine at a combined average of 57.6 mpg.
