The big question for the excellent styling and impressive performance of the Scirocco is why more people don't choose to drive one. If they did, they would find a car that is eager to impress for performance and its handling brings confidence.
The sixth generation Scirocco is exciting to drive, it handles beautifully since it's based on the Golf's chassis and comes in five specifications. The top of the range is the special edition R. The mid-range GT is probably the pick of the crop with the 2.0 litre TSI petrol engine. However, the best economy comes with the GT coupled to a 2.0 litre TDI BlueMotionwhich will return 63mpg on the combined cycle. This compares well with the Scirocco's 2.0 litre diesel which returns 53mpg while the entry-level 1.4 litre TSI petrol engine will manage 54mpg.
Needless to say, with the Scirocco feels solid and well built; it's a very safe car and has electronic stability control, as well as traction control to keep the Scirocco on the road. There's also electronic brake force distribution and six airbags. In addition, some of the Scirocco range comes with adaptive chassis control which is tailored to meet any road condition though anyone looking for a fun and testing drive to see what the Scirocco can really do should opt to use 'Sport' which will stiffen the suspension and help sharpen the steering. The manual gearbox is excellent though the DSG automatic version can be a tad sluggish. This isn't a cheap car but there is lots of equipment on-board to help make it more attractive; depending on the model chosen there will be dual zone climate control, alloy wheels, electric windows, Bluetooth connectivity and dusk sensor. There's plenty of space on board, though tall adults may find the rear seats a squeeze while the driver and passenger get bucket seats to help keep them in place should the Scirocco ever be put through its paces.
