From £18,860 - £800 less than current lowest-priced model

A new entry-level Volkswagen Scirocco will go on sale next year priced from £18,860 - £800 less than the current lowest-price model.

The new car will be powered by a 121bhp 1.4-litre petrol engine, in contrast to the current entry-level model, which has a 158bhp engine.

The new model’s 0-62mph time of 9.7 seconds is almost two seconds slower than the more powerful car’s, but its CO2 emissions of 146g/km make it the cleanest petrol-engined model in the Scirocco range.

The 121bhp car also returns 44.1mpg – better than the 158bhp car’s 42.8mpg with the same six-speed manual gearbox.

Standard equipment includes a six-CD autochanger, air-conditioning and 17-inch alloy wheels. Safety features include stability control and six airbags.

Adaptive Chassis Control, which tailors the car's suspension to suit different road conditions, is a £765 option.

Volkswagen has also announced a new optional styling pack for GT models. The £950 Lugano Black package includes 19-inch alloys finished in gloss black as well as extra Piano Black inserts in the cabin.

Well lets hope VW acutally give UK dealers some of the bloomin things to sell - Sciroccos are like hens teeth at the moment and have been since September, with dealers only allocated 1 or 2 cars per month, people have been happily paying full new list prices for 6 month old demos just to get hold of them.

As for the bhp, a £500 chip should sort that easily enough.
