Bray People - - Motoring Extra -

IT’S HOT, and it’s here.

Volk­swa­gen’s much-ac­claimed new Scirocco storms into the Ir­ish mar­ket 34 years af­ter the first ver­sion was un­veiled.

Sporty and in­no­va­tive, the new two-door Scirocco is a com­pletely

re-en­gi­neered all-round sports car.

In­spired by the idea of cre­at­ing an af­ford­able sports car for everyday use, it mar­ries top tech­nol­ogy and low run­ning costs to dy­namic per­for­mance with high com­fort lev­els.

Thanks to an elon­gated roof line, the new Scirocco is cred­ited with hav­ing a sur­pris­ingly spa­cious in­te­rior within an un­com­pro­mis­ing sporty de­sign, with am­ple room in­side for four adults.

It is driven by a se­lec­tion of five high-torque, low-con­sump­tion TDI com­mon rail diesel and TSI en­gines. Among its in­no­va­tive fea- tures are adap­tive chas­sis con­trol and the avail­abil­ity of 7-speed DSG trans­mis­sion within the model mix.

When fully avail­able, the Scirocco model of­fer­ing will con­sist of three

petrol and two com­mon rail diesel ver­sions. Petrol mod­els be­gin with a

2.0-litre TSI 200bhp unit priced from €34,710 ex works.

Though fi­nal prices have yet to be agreed, they are ex­pected to range from €28,000 for the 1.4-litre 122bhp ver­sion.

The su­per new VW Scirocco has landed 34 years af­ter the first ver­sion.
