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?

    First Drive
    25 July 2017
    Limited-edition road-legal Caterham track car is a superbly enthralling drive, with enough creature comforts to be used on the road as well. Even more addictive than most of its rangemates
  • McLaren 570S Spider
    First Drive
    25 July 2017
    McLaren has created its most attainable drop-top by removing the roof from the 570S coupé, but none of the car's talent has come away with it

    23 July 2017
    The Range Rover Velar is the most road-biased car Land Rover has made. So does it still feel like a proper part of the family?
