The inside story

Sun-worshippers should rejoice, as the Scirocco also gets a large glass roof

"You've seen it once, you've seen it all". In true German fashion, the Scirocco's interior can come across as a familiar sight to most - yes, you've seen it in the Golf or Eos. Pretty disappointing I must say, as it contradicts the stylish exterior it's endowed with.

We all know how the Germans are practitioners of "function over form", but it would be nice to see something more avant-garde, so to speak. A sombre place to be in as it is, a two-toned interior - like the one we saw in the Passat CC - would've been much appreciated. Or at least, how about matching green-coloured stitches to compliment the leather bound seats and door panels?

Fortunately to make up for it, build quality remains top notch with remarkable fit and finishing, and also high quality plastic as order of the day. The seats provide good support for driver and all three passengers as well. But being a 2 + 2, you can only seat two at the back - however, it does so rather comfortably with the well sculpted seats that are supportive at the same time.

Sun-worshippers should rejoice, as the Scirocco also gets a large glass roof. Sorry, it doesn't open like a sunroof, but only tilts to allow ventilation.

Ingress and egress is surprisingly a cinch thanks to the one-touch button to move the seat's backrest, and you don't have to be a gymnast just to get in or out of the car. The boot is also deep and spacious, so you know this is one car that can be driven for long haul jaunts up North. There's also plenty of cubby holes placed within the cabin for added convenience.

So although it's unexciting, you have to give Volkswagen's designers credit for making the cabin a spacious and practical place to be in.

Sold my car withing a few days. Fast process. However, be ready for dealers to slash price saying need to change tyre, need to repaint, etc during viewing.
