The VW Scirocco is an impressive three door coupe that has a lot to recommend it. It's not only a practical choice but the car offers lots of capabilities in a well-built package.
Under the bonnet, the Volkswagen Scirocco has a range of punchy petrels and cheap to run diesel engines. The fuel economies range from 35 mpg to 67 mpg with the engines delivering 0 to 62 mph times from between 5.7 seconds to 9.3 seconds. There's a range of choices for the petrol engine from a frugal 1.4 litre or a 2.0 litre unit while the diesel offering is just the one 2.0 litre engine. The engines are mated to a six-speed manual box though drivers who opt for the automatic DSG gearbox will find the Sirocco is put through its paces by the quick shifting transmission to deliver impressive acceleration and performance.
A lot of the capabilities for the VW Scirocco are down to the Golf platform which delivers an excellent ride quality and lots of group and stability. While the interior is well-designed and made from premium materials, it doesn't have the eye-catching style of some of its rivals but it is a comfortable place to spend time.
The handling on country roads is excellent and it's a comfortable cruiser over long distances with lots of power when needed on motorways. For those who want the best possible performance, then the VW Scirocco GTS is worth a closer look; introduced in 2016 this special edition delivers some exterior tweaks, including racing stripes, and the 2.0 litre engine produces 217 bhp and will reach 62 mph in 6.5 seconds.
There's plenty of safety equipment on board including electronic stability control, airbags and active head restraints. Top spec models come with electronic differential and dynamic chassis control to help deliver a more rewarding sporty drive. Standard equipment includes an infotainment system, air conditioning, alloy wheels, a multifunction steering wheel and DAB radio. Among the options is an impressive satnav system.
The flagship VW Scirocco R-Line offers an all-round impressive offering from the German carmaker with lots of luxury including a different body kit, larger alloy wheels and comfortable leather seats.
Essentially, the VW Scirocco is a sleek coupe that offers more than its rivals in the same segment with an excellent blend of space, style and abilities.
