Volkswagen’s New Scirocco Breaks Free
By Igor Holas
Today, first two official photos broke onto the Internet revealing the full beauty of this new small coupe/hatchback, which will seat four occupants. According to World Car Fans, the little beast will be powered by 2.0 liter TFSI (200 horsepower) and 1.4 liter TSI (122 horsepower)turbocharged gasoline engines connected to the wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Some other likely options include adaptive shock absorbers and a panoramic sunroof. Standard features will include 17 inch alloy wheels, ESP, and sport suspension.
The new car comes some 34 years after the original Scirocco made its debut. The only sad part of this news is the possibility that the Scirocco will not be sold in North America. It would have made a great competitor to the Mini Cooper, Volvo C30, or other premium small hatches. Autosavant will have more details, including the official press release, when Volkswagen officially reveals the car in the coming days at the show.
