VW Scirocco Gets a Freshen Up

The carwow Best Coupe 2012 is set to get even better, with Volkswagen giving it a subtle refresh for April.
The fantastic styling remains the same, unless you specify the new R Line models which receive a dramatic bodykit not unlike the hardcore 265 horsepower Scirocco R. The good news is that you can enjoy those looks with some more sedate - and economical - engine choices, including the 2.0-litre TSI, as well as the Bluemotion Technology 140-horsepower diesel and 170-horsepower TDI units. All come with the option of either manual or dual-clutch transmissions.
Lower down the range the Scirocco is more affordable than ever. The base 1.4 TSI now costs less than twenty grand, with an on-the-road price of 19,650. Prices of entry-level Sciroccos have dropped by between 420 and 600, depending on the engine.
You get more for your money though, with RNS 315 touchscreen navigation on every model, as well as a multifunction steering wheel and 17-inch Long Beach alloy wheels. Adaptive Chassis Control (ACC) is now optional.
Cars in GT trim get Nappa leather as standard, with heated front seats. ACC comes as standard, as does two-zone electronic climate control, front fog lights, tinted glass and 18-inch Interlagos alloy wheels.
Along with the VW Beetle and the Golf, youre spoilt for choice if you want a stylish three-door Volkswagen right now. The updated Scirocco range is on sale now.
