2014 Volkswagen Scirocco Facelift Revealed

2014 Volkswagen Scirocco 41

Set to be revealed at the Geneva Motor Show next month, the new Volkswagen Scirocco benefits from updated styling and a wide array of engines with more power but up to 19% more economical.

Updated styling with high-tech exterior lighting

Exterior changes which carry over to the Scirocco R include newly designed front and rear sections with redesigned H7 or bi-xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights, LED rear taillights, along with a reworked bumper and boot lid.

Five of the 13 available colours are new to the line-up. The exterior paints are called Pyramid Gold, Urano Grey, Flash Red, Pure White and Ultra Violet. There are also new alloy wheel designs ranging from 17-inch to 19-inch (on the Scirocco R.)

The interior of the Scirocco has also been developed further in several areas including a redesigned flat-bottomed leather-wrapped steering wheel, optimised instrument panel trim, new air vents and gauges copied from the Golf GTI as well as sporty d├ęcor, materials and colours. The three auxiliary instruments integrated above the centre console are included as a standard: charge pressure, chronometer and engine oil temperature.

Additionally, the Scirocco cabin can now host a "Dynaudio Excite" audio system, a ParkAssist system and has a covered storage compartment next to the handbrake lever.
