VW Scirocco R Reviews
In time for the 40th birthday of the version, the VW Scirocco continues to be upgraded with a raft of technical revisions and small styling. We have driven it here in its most powerful, popular hatch-troubling kind - the Scirocco R - that will be priced from GBP32,295.
This Scirocco R keeps the EA113 unit that functioned in the pre-facelift version - and the Mk5 Golf GTI - albeit with electricity up by 15 bhp.
This definitely is not a comprehensive reworking. There was really little incorrect, it must be said, with the aesthetic of the six-year old Scirocco, but a particular threat is lent by the new angular headlights to an assured and classic contour.
Quite little of any real effect has transformed, then, which would be to say the Scirocco R stays an attractive regular four-seat sports coupe, but it is not an auto that will pull you out of bed early.
