Volkswagen Scirocco GTS confirmed
The new high-end trim adds a selection of visual adornments, with the most eye-catching a pair of stripes on the Scirocco’s bonnet. It also offers red or white door mirrors.
The Scirocco GTS can be ordered in white with black stripes and red mirrors, red with black stripes and white mirrors, black with white stripes and red mirrors, or grey with black stripes and red mirrors.
You get all the equipment of the VW Scirocco R-Line, but the GTS adds black leather upholstery with red stitching, a GTS logo on the headrest, steering wheel and sill plates. There's also a golf ball-style gearknob and floor mats with red piping.
The GTS comes with sat-nav, adaptive chassis control, dual-zone climate control and Bluetooth.
The Scirocco GTS is a permanent addition to the range, and is available with a choice of two engines: the 175bhp 2.0-litre TDI diesel or the 207bhp 2.0-litre TSI petrol. Both engines come with the choice of six-speed manual or DSG semi-automatic gearboxes.
The petrol costs £27,945 for the manual, and £29,345 for the DSG, while the diesel costs £27,980 and £29,935 for the manual and DSG respectively.
