A standout 3-door coupé featuring a design that really catches the eye, the Volkswagen Scirocco is a highly sought-after option since the model was discontinued in 2017. The first Scirocco was brought to market in 1978.

With its sharp appearance and wide choice of engines, the Scirocco offers a fun driving experience that is complemented by the German manufacturer’s renowned build quality. Constructed on the same platform as a Mk5 Golf, the Volkswagen Scirocco’s responsiveness, power and stability translate into an engaging drive.

The selection of petrol and diesel engines offer plenty of power alongside surprisingly efficient fuel economy. The Volkswagen Scirocco’s enduring appeal and quality make it a solid choice for those seeking a fun and attractive vehicle. The model represents a fine alternative to competitors like the Audi TT and BMW 1 Series Coupe. Plus, with a range of trim levels available across the lineup, there is an option suitable for all motorists.

VW Scirocco updates and facelifts

The model was reintroduced in 2008. This third-generation model represents a popular choice among those seeking a more distinctive alternative to hatchbacks such as the Scirocco’s ever-popular sibling, the Volkswagen Golf.

The Scirocco underwent a facelift in 2014 and was updated to feature a more aggressive bumper styling, a revised tailgate and updated LED lights. Newer alloy wheels and a refreshed interior completed the makeover, keeping the car contemporary in its appeal.

Practicality and style of the car

Despite its sporty appearance, the Scirocco does not compromise on practicality. The boot space is a useful 312 litres, expanding to 1,200 litres with the rear seats folded flat, an impressive capacity for a coupé. The interior is elegant in appearance, with high-quality materials and a well-assembled feel that is synonymous with Volkswagen vehicles. There is also an ample array of cubby holes to help keep the cabin clear of clutter.

In terms of passenger comfort, the Scirocco offers an impressive level of headroom in the back despite its sloping roofline. The two rear seats provide a surprisingly generous amount of legroom and are perfect for children and young adults. There are even ISOFIX anchor points for child seats, meaning younger passengers can be safe and secure on every journey.

Compared to two of its rivals in the sector – the Audi TT and the Peugeot RCZ – the Scirocco offers a far greater degree of space and comfort throughout. You can also opt for a model featuring a sunroof for a more airy and spacious feeling cabin.

You can load up to 75kg onto the Scirocco’s roof, making it more than capable of supporting bike racks and roof boxes if you need added storage.

Running costs

Annual insurance premiums for the Scirocco are reasonable, with the Scirocco sitting between groups 18 and 34 (out of 50). In terms of road tax, you can expect to pay between £20 and £320 annually.

How a used VW Scirocco drives

The Scirocco gives a performance that's both sporty and enjoyable. With its low centre of gravity, the model also has a level of sportiness that is complemented by exceptional stability. With some models featuring Adaptive Chassis Control, you can even fine-tune the suspension settings.

Whether you are looking for petrol or diesel power, the Volkswagen Scirocco has both options available. Petrol options include the 1.4-litre TSI engine which produces 123bhp and achieves 0-62mph in 9.3 seconds, while a 2.0-litre 178bhp edition produces 280Nm of torque. If you are seeking more power in your vehicle, there is also a 2.0-litre TSI engine – one that featured in the 2009 Golf GTI – that provides 217bhp and a 0-62mph time of 5.6 seconds, all with a fuel economy of 44.1mpg.

If your preference is for a diesel powertrain, the Scirocco offers a 2.0-litre TDI that comes with either 148bhp or 181bhp power outputs, each offering an economy of more than 60mpg. The 148bhp version reaches 0-62mph in 8.6 seconds, while the larger option achieves the same in just 8.1 seconds.

Features you can expect in a VW Scirocco

While the Scirocco's exterior design leans more towards a compact hatchback than a traditional sports car, it certainly does not lack style or character. The wide grille is a signature feature, the sloping roofline adds to the aerodynamic performance, and the bulging rear wheel arches infuse the car with a unique and sporty appearance.

The 2014 facelift saw the core design of the car unchanged, preserving its iconic look while introducing subtle enhancements. These updates, centring around the lights and bumpers, were tailored to align with more modern aesthetics. The LED tail lamps, now standard across the range, are more contemporary in their look. The revised front bumper took its styling cues from the MK7 Golf GTI.


The Scirocco's cabin is the perfect complement to the exterior’s stylish appeal. The build quality is quintessentially Volkswagen, while the dashboard is classic in its design. Leather sports seats (on the R-Line model) are plush and comfortable, and two-zone climate control comes as standard, except on base models. Brushed aluminium inserts add a touch of class to higher-spec versions too, while the introduction of a multifunction steering wheel and an updated infotainment touchscreen enable you to always stay fully informed and in control.


Standard equipment for the Scirocco is impressive for a vehicle of its age, with features like Bluetooth connectivity, alloy wheels, DAB radio, CD changer, and a cooled glove box. Touchscreen sat nav (starting at 5.0 inches and increasing to 6.5 inches depending on trim) is available as standard on all trims except the entry-level. The R-Line edition is equipped with 19-inch alloy wheels and optional extras such as electric folding door mirrors and keyless entry. For those who seek the best in-car entertainment, the 400W Dynaudio Excite sound pack is also an impressive addition.


Safety features such as six airbags, ABS with brake assist, tyre pressure monitors, electronic stability control, ISOFIX anchor points and traction control all contribute to the Scirocco's 5-star Euro NCAP rating, with an adult occupant rating of 87% and child occupant score of 73%.
