VW Updating Sporty Scirocco Coupe

But you still can’t have one, at least not in the U.S.

by on Feb.17, 2014

The latest incarnation of the VW Scirocco will debut at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show.

The Volkswagen Scirocco has long been one of the most visually appealing models in the expansive VW line-up, and also among its sportiest.  So, it’s good news to hear that there’s a new model coming to the Geneva Motor Show next month.

Here’s the bad news: if you live in the U.S., you’ll have to admire the 2015 Volkswagen Scirocco from afar.  Unless the German maker finally has a change of heart, it appears the facelifted coupe still won’t make the trans-Atlantic jump.  But we keep hoping.

We'll Keep You Behind the Wheel!

Actually, the 2015 version is more than just a facelift, with plenty of new technology and a lot happening under the hood that makes the update both more powerful and as much as 19% more fuel-efficient.


Milestones: 100,000 Gen 3 VW Scirocco Coupes

Thirty six years ago a lovely Giugiaro-sculpted coupe appeared.

A notable Giugiaro design started the sales run.

At the VW Automóveis Ltda. plant in Portugal today the hundred-thousandth third-generation Scirocco rolled off the production line.

Since its launch in 1974, this compact sports coupe has been the most successful Volkswagen two-door, with more than 800,000 sold to date.

Another notable Giugiaro coupe is the breathtaking beautiful Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint, of course, but it is the exact opposite of the original angular Scirocco.

The 100K model is a Scirocco R 2.0 TSI, in “Rising Blue Metallic,” with a black interior, radio navigation system, and a tilting sunroof.

Volkswagen also produces the Volkswagen Eos, the new Sharan and, since 2008, the third generation of a reborn Scirocco at the plant.
