Volkswagen have announced that their new face lifted Scirocco will be available from prices starting at £20,455 after its probable launch in October.
Volkswagen chose the 2014 Geneva Motor show to unveil its new take on the Scirocco, a VW model originally built between 1974 and 1992. It was in Geneva in 2008 that the third model was unveiled to critical and commercial acclaim, being awarded Top Gear Magazine’s car of the year for 2008. Aside from a production model based off the GT24, since then the appearance and features of the Scirocco have remained pretty much the same. Boasting improved performance, and a stylish facelift, it looks the Scirocco could be turning heads again.
The Volkswagen Scirocco is a perennial favourite amongst drivers who demand the solid reliability and functionality of the Volkswagen Golf, but wrapped in something…well…a little easier on the eye. The VW Scirocco certainly ticks both these boxes.
Critically lauded by both critics and consumers, the Scirocco is now at a cross-roads in its lifespan. Do Volkswagen mess with a winning design to keep the range fresh, or do they keep things as they are and risk becoming stale down the line?
This sportier alternative to the Volkswagen Golf, provides you with all the features you may already be used to in a car, as well as some you may not be. Utilizing a 1.4 litre TSI 4 Cylinder engine, with the option of both a super charger or turbo charger, as well as a 2.0 litre FSI turbo charged 4 Cylinder engine, these cars can come with impressive horsepower and economy considering their design and purpose. These models come in both automatic as well as manual transmissions, with a special order option of a 6 speed gearbox. They can be special ordered with optional body kits, and firmer suspension systems if you go for the Scirocco R model which became available in 2012. Accessories include a panoramic sunroof, CD stereo with MP3 player, alloy rims in either 17 inch or 18 inch sizes, HID Headlights, front-side airbag system, climate control system, a keyless entry system, ABS braking, and many other power accessory features.
