The car

The new Scirocco is closer in name and spirit, rather than design with the original Scirocco. And despite being marketed as a coupe, it looks unmistakably like a three-door hatchback - albeit a low-slung one at that.

Up front, it sports a look that is vastly different from any of the existing Volkswagen models. The nose is low, with a wide but narrow intake grille set in glossy black flanked by a pair of aggressively-styled headlights complete with chrome headlamp surround. The VW logo has also been relocated to the bonnet for a refreshingly clean look - and I am glad to report that this treatment will set the standard for the new models to come.

The Scirocco is 40mm longer and 51mm wider than the Golf GTI, on which it is heavily based on. Flared arches and pronounced rear haunches, coupled with the short overhangs and a lowered ride height (by a full 97mm at roof level than the GTI), it equips the Scirocco with a lean, purposeful stance. The short rear hatch and tall, wide bumper contrives to create a pert posterior ala J. Lo…either you love it or hate it.

Unlike the exterior, the interior is the typical VW fare. The dashboard is lifted straight from an Eos, while the flat-bottomed steering wheel comes from the same parts bin as the Golf GTI. It does get its unique touches though, such as the aluminium finish on the fascia and the triangular door handles. Fit and finish are impeccable, though some might find the ambience a tad sombre.

All four occupants get individually sculpted seats. And despite what the low roofline, tapering side windows and small rear screen might suggest, the headroom and legroom at the rear is rather decent, though occupants larger in build might find things a little too cosy for their liking.

Boot space is predictably small - some 58 litres down from that of the Golf GTI. Thankfully, with the rear seats folded, large items can still be accommodated.
