Green-Car-Guide rating:

The Volkswagen Scirocco in 140 PS TDI form is one of the for efficiency in the sports car category; the 170 PS is almost as economical, but has more and we rate it as one of the best cars driven all year.

Firstly, admit that your is likely to be for a petrol-powered sports and this rule would equally to the Scirocco. However, if you to combine the virtues of a sports car the potential economy of an efficient then the TDI is an excellent choice.

Scirocco came with a DSG (Direct Shift Gearbox), is a brilliant bit of technology. Because have a narrower power than petrol engines, negotiation of obstacles such as on fast A-roads may actually a couple of gearchanges in the TDI, and is something that is done quicker with a DSG box than a

We’re certainly not fans of the of automatic transmissions, however the DSG with its steering wheel-mounted shifters, is excellent. Gear are rapid, and you certainly feel in control than with an although there was the odd occasion the DSG gearbox was caught out when down. Yet if you want to laze in fully auto mode, for in a traffic jam, then you can do that.

One point to note is although the DSG box is excellent, it reduces economy – without the DSG transmission the 170 PS can manage 53.3 mpg and 139 g/km compared to 50.4 mpg and 147 g/km for the DSG And of course we’ve already that the 170 PS engine is less than the 140 PS – the lesser-powered unit can 55.4 mpg and 134 g/km CO2.

Volkswagen has in fact just that all entry-level Scirocco and GT models with the 2.0-litre 140 PS TDI will now feature BlueMotion modifications.

The models, available a six-speed manual or optional DSG gearbox, offer savings increased fuel economy, from 55.4 mpg to 62.8 mpg on the cycle (51.4 mpg to 57.6 mpg the DSG option), and lower emissions, from 134 g/km to 118 g/km to 129 with DSG).

Even the TDI 170 PS engine fitted to the Scirocco GT, as will now improve, resulting in economy figures improving to mpg from 53.3 mpg (50.4 mpg to mpg with DSG) and CO2 emissions from 139 to 134 g/km (147 to 144 for

Despite all the pros and cons green credentials, the Scirocco is to be a sports car, so we’d the 170 PS with DSG, as it has enough to come close to providing a sports car experience, but it can still 50 mpg on a long run, and that is a impressive combination in our view. The engine even sounds – something that is important for a car has sporty pretentions.

It’s not the engine and gearbox combination works well, the chassis does a great job of achieving a balance between comfort and handling, and the car feels planted and at all times. You can in fact choose Sport, Normal or Comfort settings, as all Sciroccos come Adaptive Chassis Control as standard, which allows damper, steering and throttle settings to be selected.

The result is an driving experience that is refined. With this of car we would go for rear-wheel drive front-wheel drive in virtually all however you really don’t that front-wheel drive the Scirocco driving experience.

The interior is an extremely pleasant to be; it’s well designed, it extremely classy, and the build feels bomb-proof. The seats are and the chunky, flat-bottomed leather wheel feels superb.

equipment on the Scirocco is good, and in the test car came with trim and touch-screen satellite-navigation, is an excellent system, allowing an swap between map or 3D view, and scales. The car also has an easy to play an iPhone through the

The Scirocco even manages to an impressive balance between levels of interior space and exterior coupe looks. To the point, we even managed to fit in two and one toddler plus all the required for a camping weekend. Split rear seats certainly in accommodating extra luggage. And many cars, fitting an child seat was straightforward, as with any two or three-door coupe, the rear seats isn’t easy.

Which brings us to the Scirocco’s The car does appear somewhat with big wide rear and some people seem to it, while others aren’t as We don’t think it looks great in some colours, but we to say that it looks absolutely in the bright ‘Viper’ metallic of the test car, and the alloy certainly help to finish the car

The Scirocco can offer a lot of car for the money, this test car was priced at plus £1715 for satnav, upholstery at £1685, metallic at £430, rear parking at £355 and mats at £75 – which to a grand total of £29,015. not so cheap.


The Scirocco has It’s a refined and practical coupe that is also to drive. It has good performance yet on a run you can extract a decent amount of and the DSG gearbox is excellent. It has a respectable of space for a coupe, and in metallic it looks great. We were to give the Scirocco a Green-Car-Guide of 10 out of 10, but as all our road tests must a focus on green credentials, have to give it a 9 out of 10.
