The latest Volkwagen Scirocco is based on the current Volkswagen GTi but its lower wider and lighter. It is a good looking car which benefits access to great engines and is solidly built.
The range of powerful yet efficient engines is most impressive. The 2.0 litre TSI four cylinder engine seems to be the most popular with a choice of six speed manual or six speed DSG gearboxes. Another option is the 1.4-litre TSI 160PS petrol version or a 2.0-litre TDI common rail diesel model with either 140 or 170PS and a combined economy of around 52 mpg. The Volkswagen Scirocco offers a choice of two trim levels standard and GT.
All Volkswagen Scirocco models feature advanced adaptive chassis control offering three driver-selected settings comfort, normal and sport. The system’s influence extends to the steering system: should ‘sport’ be selected, the steering firms up to provide more feel while ‘comfort’ mode makes the steering lighter and easier to operate at low speeds or around town. The interior of the Volkwagen Scirroco is light and airy and there is the option of an electrically-operated panoramic sunroof which creates even more spaciousness. The Volkswagen Scirrocco has a range of safety features as standard these include six airbags, Electronic Stabilisation Programme (ESP) and ABS with Hydraulic Brake Assist.
