Volkswagen has confirmed the Scirocco GTS will receive a UK launch, priced from £28k
20 December 2012

The new Volkswagen Scirocco GTS will offer a range of styling upgrades over the R-Line model on which it is based.

Volkswagen’s new addition to the Scirocco range features a pair of stripes running from bonnet to boot, contrasting coloured door mirror cappings, a panoramic sunroof and 18in Thunder alloys specific to the GTS.

It is available in Candy White, Salsa Red, Deep Pearl Black and Indium Grey, each with contrasting trim.

Standard R-Line equipment includes navigation, adaptive chassis control, two-zone climate control and Bluetooth connectivity.

The Scirocco GTS is available with a 175bhp 2.0-litre TDI or a 207bhp 2.0-litre TSI petrol engine, with six-speed manual and DSG gearboxes available with both. Prices range from £27,945 to £29,395 and order books open from January 2. 

Our Verdict

Volkswagen Scirocco

Golf-based coupe comes at a surprisingly tempting price, but can it revive a classic name?

And there was me hoping from the title they'd done a stripped out light weight version of the R.......

This though is not my cup of tea.  It's a bit..... Halfords.

 

 

It's all about the twisties........

Likewise, I was thinking stripiped out in the mould of the Renaultsport cups or a rival to the M135i or next RS3. Turns out to be neither.

I know VW fans will kill me for saying this but I'll say it anyway. From the front it looks like a Golf with aggression issues and a stripe on the bonnet. From the side it looks like a mangled Golf. From the rear it looks like a three-door Golf GTI or GTD. New Golf GT's interior/steering/switchgear is far better looking than Scirocco GTS. Seats however are spot on. Bespoke alloys are striking and the best looking part of this car. Hope they fit these on the upcoming Golf GTI.

Just to get this straight, the R-Line merely offers a package of styling upgrades over the standard models, and the GTS offers a range of styling upgrades over the R-Line.... I wonder if they'll introduce a new model which offers a package of styling upgrades over the GTS?

    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
  • Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer
    First Drive
    13 October 2017
    Off-road estate is now bigger, more spacious and available with torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, but is it enough to make its German rivals anxious?
