Volkswagen / Scirocco / R coupe
VOLKSWAGEN Australia has finally got its hands on the Golf-based Scirocco coupe
– something it has attempted do since the end of 2009.
, Now available
here only in flagship R guise, the slinky two-door four-seater shares its
188kW/330Nm turbocharged 2.0-litre engine with the R version of the Golf, but
unlike the now five-door-only hatch it makes do with a lighter front-drive
, As with the previous two iterations of the Scirocco
(the first generation debuted in Europe in 1974 and the second was discontinued
in 1992), the car is pitched as a sporty and more aesthetically pleasing
alternative to the Golf.
So the big question is, almost three and a half
years after it first appeared overseas, has it been worth the wait?
Model release dates: January 2012 - January 2015
