Volkswagen Scirocco is What Cars? Used Coupe of the Year

29th September 2014

At a prestigious event held at the Hurlingham Club, What Car? Magazine announced its Used Car of the Year awards. Among the winners was the Volkswagen Scirocco which took the top podium place and was crowned ‘Best Coupé’.

Originally launched in 2008, this sporty yet practical coupé, has enjoyed previous awards success, including What Car?’s own ‘Best Coupé under £25,000’ in 2010. More recently this deserving winner came fifth overall in the 2014 What Car?/JD Power customer satisfaction survey.

The Scirocco - 'The What Car' 2014 winner

And the secret of the Scirocco’s success? Well commenting on the win, What Car? Editor Jim Holder revealed: ‘The Scirocco offers great value for money in a very competitive package. It’s good to look at, it’s good to drive and it really turns heads. And now the prices have come down it’s more appealing than ever.’

At the lavish ceremony, attended by representatives from all the major car manufacturers, the winning Scirocco was named as the 2009 1.4-litre TSI 160 PS model. A choice of engines are available, from a 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol through to a gutsy 2.0-litre turbodiesel and a fun-loving 265 PS Scirocco R, all with a choice of manual or DSG gearboxes.

After this recommendation, interest in this sensational car will no doubt be as turbo charged as one of its outstanding engines. If you are looking for a well-priced Scirocco then please visit Lookers, a Volkswagen approved used dealership, for the best deals and widest range of models available.
