VOLKSWAGEN SCIROCCO Car Review
VW's version of the X-Factor!
The Scirocco is for the more extrovert Volkswagen buyers who want a touch of extra style and sportiness.
The radical original model was a cult success for VW back in the 1980s and the latest Scirocco is just as dramatic with its sculpted coupe styling giving it Volkswagen’s version of the X-Factor.
The swooping roof line means that the Scirocco doesn’t deliver the usual practicality of a VW, with space in the back tight for adults, especially headroom. But this is a VW for buyers who want a car that delivers the driving fun to go with the looks.
There is a good choice of engines but go for the 1.4 litre FSI petrol, its quick enough for most drivers and its useful on economy at around 50 mpg. The interior is a step up from even the high quality of the VW Golf. Although it shares most of the parts, it does so with a sportier finish that only adds to the growing appeal of the Scirocco.
