VW Scirocco illustration

Last Updated:

I think this one looks pretty close. Maybe a bit too low to the ground for a production car.

VW had announced earlier this year they would not import the next Scirocco to the US.
Being afraid of it competing with the GTI. But I have also heard since about US dealers complaining about this bonehead decision.

So we might get it after all.

I really like the 2 door wagon look. Chevy was supposed to have a Solstice based Nomad by now. A similar idea.
I guess they gave up on that one….

  1. looks great, let’s hope VW manages to deliver this as is and not change it into something we don’t wan’t…

  2. For some reason I see too much “Golf” in this design…the earlier model was a bit MORE cosmetically different from the Golf…

  3. I don’t like this as much as the first two generations of the Scirocco that had a large sloped glass rear window. This looks more like a 2-door wagon GTI than a sporty hatchback. I like the idea of a new Scirocco. But this, not so much.

  4. I guess they will elevate the chassis for American buyers as they did in the Golf GTI series.
    There might be other changes to make it less Golf like, but I dont have a crystal ball. If I did I would have a room full of nice women and Vince would be knocking
    on my door.

  5. I don’t get this car, looks way too much like a GTI, and nothing like a proper Scirocco or the impressive IROC concept. No wonder VWoA doesn’t want to sell this in the states. I also agree with the 92-95 Civic hatch comment, it’s like a reincarnation!

  6. This car doesn’t have half the looks of either of the other 2 Sciroccos. You’d think after having all this time to work on it, it’d be more appealing.

  7. very disapointed, i was expecting to see a coupe like hatch like the original, this is just a long sleek hatchback, kind of a lowered version of the gti, dont see the point of it…They have a popular hot hatch why make another one instead for once they can make a real sports coupe!
