Greatest charm is the way it handles! It is tight and responsive. You don't have to be Vettel to control the car as you want it. It rides smoothly but a bit on the hard side for comfort but is acceptable.
The comfort level in the interior is very high too. Cruising with supple leather and all the solid feeling plastics is really enjoyable.
200 Hp is plenty for singapore roads. Enough to have fun but not enough for the police or racers on the road to look at you to challenge for a race.
I recently got the keys to my friendís Scirocco for a day. To say that Iíve been going GAGA over that car for awhile is an understatement.
The first thing that I want to say is that the Roc is not a photogenic car. It simply isnít. The lines, the curves, the creases in the metal simply donít show up well on photos. And that leads to the main gripe that most people (especially my friends) find the design of the car to be of personal preference, to put it mildly.
A friend of mine called it the ďspace shuttle.Ē
Another called it an ďover grown frog.Ē
Yet another said: ďIt looks like a squashed Golf.Ē
I say, see it in person, walk around the car, before you pass judgement. I find the strong and defined rear hunches of the wheel arch muscular and sexy. The steeply raked windshield and mean grille makes the car a handsome and angry looking car. I find that a lot of cars on the road these days lack character, more specifically, the lack of daring to have a character.
Most cars are simply shaped to look unobtrusive, generic and easy on the eye. One car looks pretty much like the other car Ė like they were made from the same cookie cutter. I donít mean that cars should be styled to attract attention all the time, like some ďAh bengĒ ďzeng-ed outĒ race car. What I want is a car that is tastefully done yet it tingles your senses every time you lay eyes on it.
Performance and build quality wise, itís a VAG car and it shares the same engine from the old MkV Golf Ė whatís there not to like?
The humans that own cars arenít generic, why should their cars be generic? I raise my hand in solidarity against generic looking cars.
