What Car? says

4 out of 5 stars

For Good to drive and good to look at

Against Suffers from restricted rear headroom

Verdict A fast and stylish coupe that's also practical

Go for… 1.4 TSI 2dr

Avoid… none

Volkswagen Scirocco Coupe
  • 1. All Sciroccos come with alloys, air-con, stability control, side and curtain airbags, a CD multichanger and automatic lights and wipers
  • 2. The hardcore R version is the ultimate Scirocco, with a tuned 261bhp 2.0-litre petrol engine. It's fast, but still refined and superb to drive.
  • 3. All cars are available with either a six-speed manual gearbox or VW's slick semi-automatic DSG system with paddleshift.
  • 4. There has also been an issue with the boot mechanism on early cars, because the gas-filled support struts can fail. However, dealers should replace these under warranty.
  • 5. A great-looking coupe and great to drive, but it falls short of a hatchback if you need space and convenience.
