    My car

    I've owned 18 cars over the years and this one is in a class of its own. It has 210bhp which is not a massive amount of power, however I've driven stuff which has 240-260 and they just don't compare. The difference with the Scirocco is that every horsepower is transmitted to the tarmac, whereas something like the VXR Astra is a nightmare to keep on the road. Its a very safe car to drive and very simple to operate. The car is at its best on bends, hills and long straights (try north west Scotland). Motorway journeys are ok, but the car likes to be driven around more interesting routes. In the real world you'll struggle to find anything as engaging for the same money. I was really surprised just how fast it can shift from 0-100 (sorry 70) It returns 35mpg overall and 41 on motorway trips. I've had it 2 years and I'd have another one, no question, since nothing better has appeared since.

    My car

    I have owned this car, in indium grey, for a month and love it. it is one of those cars that every time you walk away you have to look back at it.

    It is great to drive, i was concerned that 140 bhp was not going to be enough but its just right, its got plenty of torque and sticks to the road like glue. The cabin is a lovely place to be and very comfortable.

    The only fault i have had is that there was a squeak from the boot area (which i have heard is quite common) but this was sorted under warranty.

    My car

    This car is pure class. If you're reading this review on the edge of temptation of ordering/buying one...then jump now. I traded-up from a Mini Cooper, which was nice, but this is in a different league. We have some nice cars in my family yet my white Roc always gets the attention. Pics don't do this motor justice for some reason, you have to see it in the flesh. Do not skmip, go for leather, winter pack and folding mirrors. Fast, fun, sleek, stylish, comfortable, refined and economic enough to get 40mpg on a good conservative run (you will never get 50+ mpg as indicated in another review!) although over the last 2k miles of mixed drivingI get 33mpg, which is fine for a car with such blistering pace. I went to buy a TT and am so glad I went for this car instead. You can fit four people, it's much cooler (albeit not quite the premium mark of the overpriced Audi that has the SAME engine) and it's arguably quicker. Well done VW, a great car that is a total joy to own and drive. And no I don't work for VW. Although I am happy to accept a job to test drive the next generation Scirocco... ;) !

    My car

    After having come out of a 4 year old BMW 320d I'm delighted (and a bit suprised) to report that I pretty much prefer my the Scirocco in almost every way.

    I have the Bluemotion version and can't really find fault. It's well built, looks great inside and out (especially with the ridiculously expensive optional leather), goes harder than I thought it would, handles nicely and rides well on the attractive standard 17" wheels.

    Only niggles would be the cost of the optional leather (£1740!!!), lack of 5 seats and small rear window. The 13% company car tax is a massive bonus and one that would lead me to recommend thie Scirocco to any company car driver (who doesn't have 3 kids).

    For some reason the BMW left me cold whilst the Scirocco leaves me looking back to admire it.
