2014 Geneva Auto Show: Facelift And Technical Improvements For The Volkswagen Scirocco
|   Monday, February 24, 2014
Volkswagen has unveiled the new Scirocco in 2014 version. It comes with a small facelift and improved engines. The new Volkswagen Scirocco will debut at the Geneva Motor Show.

The Volkswagen Scirocco Coupe, available on the market for about six years, received a revised layout. Thus, this model is hoping to attract attention to itself for several more years.

Outside, we can notice a slightly modified bumper, new twin-xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights, and a revised grid.
The rear lights have LEDs too, and small changes to the bumper and tailgate. The customers can choose for the new Volkswagen Scirocco new sets of alloy wheels.

The newly designed 17-inch (Shanghai) and 18-inch (Lisbon plus Salvador) alloy wheels are sure to turn some heads. The Scirocco is equipped with standard 17-inch Long Beach alloy wheel rims and 205mm tires. The coupe can optionally be ordered with the famous Talladega design, 18- or 19- inch alloy wheel, previously reserved only for the Scirocco R.

The interior materials have improved too. The seats have been redesigned with new materials. These new materials are Matthew (a tartan design with titanium black stool surfaces), and Greg Alcantara, which is available in shades of Ceramique, Deep Mocha, Titanium Black plus Vienna leather.

The Scirocco facelift comes with a new flat base steering wheel, leather wrapped, new aerators and details taken from the Golf GTI. In addition, the cabin also benefits from the Dynaudio Excite sound system, Park Assist system and a covered storage compartment placed next to the handbrake lever. It also boats an additional set of oil temperature indicators, timer and turbo pressure.

All engines come standard with auto stop-start and brake energy regeneration systems, except for the version with the 280 hp engine on the Scirocco R. The engines are coupled to 6-speed manual transmission or optional DSG transmission, with traction exclusively on the front axle.

The base engine, 1.4 TSI, received another 3 hp and now offers 125 hp, while the 2.0 TSI versions have been upgraded to 180 hp (+20 hp), 220 hp (+10 hp) and 280 hp (+15 hp) compared to the previous model. For diesel fans, Volkswagen has changed and now the 2.0 TDI produces 150 hp (+10 hp) or 184 hp (+7 hp). 

The new range of engine has more power, and is up to 19 percent more economical. All these engines are compatible with EURO 6 standards. With the 2.0 TSI engine, the new Scirocco consumes only 6.0 l / 100 km. The entry level 1.4 TSI Scirocco consumes only 5.4 l / 100 km. The most economical diesel engine, the new Scirocco 2.0 TDI consumes only 4.1 l / 100 km.

The Scirocco will be launched on the market this summer. It will be produced by the Germans at its Portuguese plants near Lisbon. The sports car will be launched in Europe first in August. Markets like China, Argentina, Australia, Turkey, Russia or South Korea will be next.
The premiere will be at the Geneva Motor Show (March 6 to 16, 2014).
