For The VW Scirocco 2.0 TDI 140 Bluemotion Tech is a great option if you want economy and reasonable performance in a desirable car, while the standard spec will be easy to live with. Residuals should be excellent, too.
Against Good though the diesel engine is, it lacks the outright performance of the most desirable and powerful 2.0 TSI. Even the 1.4 TSI provides more oomph and better refinement for less.
The VW Scirocco 2.0 TDI 140 Bluemotion Tech is a great driver's car. The diesel engine doesn't really detract from the appeal, but it will appeal mainly to Mr Prudent. The 2.0 TSI GT remains our favourite, and the best option if you want a genuine performance coupe.
The Volkswagen Scirocco is a great purchase no matter what engine you opt for.
If you’re looking for performance, the 2.0 TSI has brilliant flexibility, ample grunt and reasonable running costs.
Although the 1.4 TSI versions lack the outright pace of the bigger 2.0-litre model, they still offer enough to let you enjoy the sharp handling and responsive dynamics that make the Scirocco a great driver’s car.
The 2.0 diesel engines (with either 138 or 168bhp) aren’t what most would traditionally associate with a sports coupe, but it makes perfect sense if you want an affordable and comfortable cruiser.
The 2.0-litre models have the option of a six-speed semi-automatic DSG box in place of the standard six-speed manual, but it’ll set you back a four-figure sum and doesn’t add that much to the experience.
Resale values should be excellent and, although discounts are possible, don't expect them to be particularly huge.

The VW Scirocco 1.4 TSI 160 is almost the cheapest Scirocco, but it's a great option – well specced and still offering the engaging dynamics that makes the car so good to drive. All it lacks is the outright pace and residuals of the bigger models.
