Volkswagen Scirocco consumer car reviews

Chris Moore, Somerset

Volkswagen Scirocco 2.0 GTi DSG Petrol 2010

5 star review

An amazing car. I cannot fault it. Turns heads. DSG gearbox is slick and has you in 6th gear before you know it. Fuel MPG is ok on long runs but can be poor around town - I guess you don’t buy these for economy though...

Volkswagen Scirocco 2.0GT tdi 170 dsg 2010

5 star review

This car consistently delivers over 40 mpg and I have so far covered nearly 70,000 miles in less than 2 years. It’s a superbly comfortable car with adjustable chassis control and eats the miles at whatever speed you wish to drive. I’ve seen an indicated 140mph! It handles very well, exceptionally in the wet and not too shabby in the snow either! The rear seats are very comfortable once you climb in! I defy anyone to go back to a manual after using a DSG, it is so fast and smooth to change, far quicker than a manual change. I’ve been driving over 40 years and it’s only in the last couple of years that I’ve dropped below 60 thousand miles a year; this car has been brilliant, it goes back in couple of months and I can’t think of anything to replace it with - so I might as well have another one!

Volkswagen Scirocco 1.4 TSI 160 2010

5 star review

Drive one, you won’t believe it’s a 1.4! With the DSG, it’s very smooth and quiet - also quick enough to question, why you would need the 2.0 versions. MPG is diesel like without the torque lumpiness. Far nicer than my last A4. don’t pay a premium price for an Audi, it’s badge engineering!

Volkswagen Scirocco 2.0L TSI 2009

5 star review

Awesome! I had this car from new, the DSG gearbox is a dream! Never thought I would have an auto box (old man gearbox) but oh my god! Move over Vettel, here I come. The car turns heads wherever I go. White is best but the blue looks good too. Wouldn’t hesitate in recommending this car. I would love to try the R model as well. Go on, buy one you know you want too!<br /><br />

Volkswagen Scirocco 2.0GTI 2008

4 star review

This has to be the sexiest thing manufacturers have put on rubber for years. I bit of a restricted view to reverse park, but then if you can’t use your mirrors you should not be on the road. The range of colours could be increased with some real funky ones. Not sure what it will do to the resale price of Golf GTI’s, but I would expect the resale price of the Sirocco to hold it’s own. Enough negativity, off for another drive. Merry Christmas everyone! Leigh.

Volkswagen Scirocco 2008

5 star review

I didn’t think I was going to be very impressed with this car, but when you see it in the metal it’s far better than the press pictures suggest. Within a mile of driving it it’s clear VW have captured and developed the spirit of the original . It is much better in lots of ways than the current Golf GTI to drive ( I regularly drive a mk5 Edition 30 ) and it’s the first VW for a long time that really makes me enthusiastic about a car again. The suspension system is particularly impressive, rough local roads are an enjoyment rather than an endurance and the whole car just has a wonderfully well balanced feel to it. Can’t wait for Viper green GT to be delivered!

Volkswagen Scirocco 2.0 TSI 2008

5 star review

The new Volkswagen Scirocco stays true to the original (which I owned many moons ago) but has made the necessary improvements needed for motoring today. It manages to accommodate four adults with ease and is a sports car that can be used for everyday use. It looks great and is stylish yet practical and conforms to the typical high standards that you would expect from Volkswagen. There are, of course, similarities to the Golf GTI (which it is based on) but it is far bigger and, in my opinion, far better to drive. The Scirocco's price is also a pleasant surprise, being lower than you would expect. An elegant, commanding, practical and energetic car.

GT 2.0 TSI - The cool sexy VW Scirocco is back and it looks great. The car has moved on since the original Scirocco was launched in 1974 but the 2008 version looks a class act and has the wow appeal that the older generations had. The Scirocco is a coupe with a hatch, which the maker hopes will increase its prac [...]
