The VW Scirocco is an upmarket and well-equipped coupé from Volkswagen. If you’re looking for a reliable three-door car with a good choice of engines to suit your driving preferences, the VW Scirocco should be on your shortlist. With sculpted headlights, luxurious interior, excellent connectivity and driver assist features, this dynamic car won’t just turn heads, it’ll stop traffic!
The VW Scirocco features a smart rear roof spoiler and LED tail lights. Bulging wheel arches ride above 17-inch Long Beach alloy wheels and at the front, automatic dusk-sensing and range-adjustable sculpted headlights lead the way.
The GT trim adds 18-inch Interlagos alloys, tinted rear windows and front fog lamps while the GTS grades add black door mirrors, chrome scuff plates and GTS decals. Treat yourself to the R trim and you’ll also get a lowered suspension, distinctively fashioned bumpers and side skirts, 19-inch Cadiz alloy wheels and bespoke R badging.
The VW Scirocco gets its distinctive look from narrowing rear windows and slim front grille that combine to make a car that looks as if it means business.
Accessed by useful keyless entry, the classy four-seat cabin features a three-dial instrument panel above the centre console. The styling is complemented by brushed aluminium-style inserts and surrounds that draw the eye across the VW Scirocco’s dashboard.
Standard features include a multifunction power-assisted steering wheel, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, electric front windows and air conditioning. An illuminated, cooling and lockable glovebox is one of a variety of smart storage compartments with creditable boot capacity ranging from 312 litres (seats up) to 1,006 litres (seats folded).
GT grades feature two-zone climate control, while GTS trims bring smart Vienna leather upholstery embellished with red stitching and GTS branding. Range-topping R grades come with a three-spoke leather steering wheel and paddle shifters.
The VW Scirocco is capable of greater performance than ever before. The 2.0-litre petrol engine produces 178bhp and 280Nm of torque. It also delivers acceleration from 0-60mph in 7.6 seconds and a top speed of 141mph. If you favour efficiency over performance, the 2.0-litre 148bhp diesel alternative returns as much as 67.3mpg with CO2 emissions as low as 109g/km.
The engines all incorporate fuel saving devices such as a brake energy recuperation system, which recovers some of the braking energy and Start/Stop function which cuts the engine while the car is idling.
XDS and Electronic Stability Control (ESC) contribute to the VW Scirocco’s excellent handling. Spinning is prevented by just the right amount of pressure being applied to the inner front wheel while cornering, providing maximum traction and reduced understeering.
You’re never far from the latest technology in the VW Scirocco. An eight-speaker sound system includes DAB radio, a CD player and a 5.8-inch colour touchscreen interface. Bluetooth® and USB connectivity is also included to keep you connected, wherever you travel. Spoil yourself with the R-line, featuring a 6.5-inch colour touchscreen with preloaded European navigation data, points-of-interest, traffic sign recognition and more.
Keeping driver and passengers comfortable and secure is also the name of the game with the VW Scirocco. Anti-lock Braking System and passive safety features, such as safety-optimised head restraints, ISOFIX anchor points and airbags provide a safe environment.
For added ease of driving, front and rear parking sensors are available with the GT level, while R-Line trim provide additional comfort with bespoke heated, leather sports seats.
