Next-Gen Volkswagen Scirocco To Debut In 2017; Facelifted Version Coming Next Year

While fans are expecting the next-generation Volkswagen Scirocco to debut in 2015, German automotive site, Auto Bild has reported that the new model will only be ready by 2017. The scoop is that Volkswagen is only planning to launch a facelifted version of the third-generation Scirocco in 2014.

The current 2013 Volkswagen Scirocco, which shares the same platform as the Volkswagen Golf Mk5, will receive a facelift and is expected to be kept for four more years. The new upgrade will include a more refreshed look, an overhauled cabin, more assistance systems, and an optimised Euro 6 engine.

Next-Gen Scirocco Updates For 2017

Meanwhile, the fourth-generation Volkswagen Scirocco will retain its four-seat layout, a large tailgate and a variable luggage compartment, albeit, Volkswagen hinted that the upcoming Scirocco will carry a “full-fledged sports coupe” design, rather than the shooting brake style that the current model employs.

The next generation of Sciroccos will be sharing its platform with the latest Golf Mk7: the popular MQB platform, which also underpins cars like the latest Seat Leon, Skoda Octavia and the Audi A3. While Volkswagen has yet to reveal the engine line-up for the 2017 Scirocco, Auto Bild has apparently also uncovered that it could be powered by a 125hp 1.4-litre TSI engine, a 180hp 1.8-litre TSI unit, or a 2.0-litre TSI powerplant that chruns out 230hp and 370Nm of torque. On top of that, the range-topping Scirocco R is likely to join the range with its power output of 300hp – just like its 4MOTION Golf R sibling.

AboutBill Khairi
On one hand, I love driving cars at top speeds with the windows down and the music up. On the other, I'd take a drive out of town just to soak up the smell of brand new leather upholstery. Either way, it's a passion for the finer things in motoring that keep me going; and who says you can't do 'fine' at 200km/h?
