About the Scirocco

The Volkswagen Scirocco was a long-standing 3-door compact hatchback model with strong sports coupe DNA. It acted as the more athletic-looking foil to the VW Golf which was initially released at the same time back in 1974. It was also a replacement for the Karmann Ghia coupe which had been around for some time by that point.

The Scirocco has been manufactured over a long period over 3 production generations. The first was from 1974 to 1981, the second from 1981 to 1992. There was then a 16-year hiatus before the 3rd generation arrived in 2008, which subsequently ran until 2017 creating a number of interesting concepts and special editions on the way, as well as a facelift in 2014.

While the first 2 generations of Scirocco were comparatively boxy, the third was markedly more curved and aerodynamic in its design; a more obvious sports coupe candidate for a modern audience, though the original 2 are also very much a product of their time. It was powered by a 1.4L gasoline engine as standard, with options for a 2.0L 4-cylinder unit, and a 2.0L diesel unit.

The 2.0L gasoline engine was made initially for the sporty Scirocco R which was based on the GT24 concept from 2008. It could reach 261-hp and 258 lb-ft of torque and featured larger air intakes, chrome tailpipes, a black diffuser and integrated spoiler. Its concept ancestor the GT24 was used for the Nurburgring 24-hour race.

Buyers of the facelifted version received bi-xenon headlights, LED daytime running lights, a new front grille design, new bumper and new boot lid design. Unlike the VW Golf or VW Polo, the Scirocco was never offered as more than a 2-door coupe. That was an integral part of its design DNA. There have been rumors of a revival project for the Scirocco or at least a spiritual coupe successor, but to date these rumors have been denied by VW.
