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 coupe that is eager to impress for performance and its handling brings confidence.
The sixth generation Volkswagen Scirocco is exciting to drive and will impress with its handling. Based on the VW Golf's chassis, the Scirocco comes in five specifications with the top of the range being the special edition R.
The mid-range VW Scirocco 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 BlueMotion engine which will return 63mpg on the combined cycle. This compares well with the entry-level 1.4 litre TSI petrol engine which will return 53mpg.
Needless to say, 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 distribution and six airbags.
In addition, the Scirocco 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.
There is a lot of equipment on-board the Volkswagen Scirocco; 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 with the driver and passenger getting bucket seats to help keep them in place should the Scirocco ever be put through its paces.
Essentially, the Scirocco has an eye-catching design, impressive performance and is surprisingly practical. With its solid build, this is a coupe to enjoy.
