Volkswagen Scirocco GTS Revealed

Scirocco GTS 1

Keeping the Scirocco name alive is this new GTS model, a throwback to the 1982 VW Scirocco GTS. This new GTS model has a slight power upgrade, some exterior add-ons and a slight revamp to the interior styling.

More Power for Scirocco GTS

The Scirocco GTS has an additional 7 kW over the standard 2.0-Litre turbo, taking it up to 162 kW, the same as the latest Golf GTI. Zero to 100kph is claimed at 6.5 seconds with top speed at 244kph. If you choose the manual gearbox over the DSG, the top speed increases to 246kph.

Special Exterior

The Scirocco GTS will be equipped as standard with new 18-inch alloy wheels, with 19-inch alloy being available as an option. The red brake callipers of the GTS can be seen through the spokes of both of these wheel options. In addition, the Scirocco GTS comes with the R-Line package "Exterieur" as standard, which includes distinctive R-style bumpers, custom side sill extensions, a roof spoiler and a diffuser. The wing mirror caps are painted in stylish black and, just like its predecessor, the '82 Scirocco GTS, the new model can be ordered with a sporty GTS decal for the body as an option. This option features two decorative red stripes that run centrally from the bonnet over the roof and the boot (if the car is painted in "Flash Red" the stripes are black). The new Scirocco is also enhanced by 3D GTS logos in the radiator grille and on the tailgate.

Black and Red interior

The theme inside the Scirocco GTS is black and red and just about everything gets this treatment. A few of the touches include decorative inlays in "Piano Black Lacquer " in the centre console and the dashboard, GTS badges on the sill panels, a steering wheel with red seams and the lower spoke finished in "Black Piano Lacquer" (with the GTS logo). The pedals are stainless steel and the seat covers feature centre panels made of a new material (with the GTS logo at the top of the backrest) and red decorative stitching. The GTS package also includes a golf ball gear knob and contrasting red seams for the safety belts, handbrake lever, gear lever gaiter, central armrest and floor mats.
