Overall verdict

The Top Gear car review:Volkswagen Scirocco



Running costs and reliability

Volkswagen Scirocco rear quarter

The 184bhp 2.0-litre diesel returns 54.2mpg and emits 115g/km of CO2 – while still recording a 0–62mph time of 7.5 seconds – while the 2.0 TDI 140 diesel emits a fleet-friendly 109g/km and averages 67.3mpg. With a base price of £20k for the entry-level 125bhp 1.4-litre TSI and rock-solid residuals, the Scirocco actually soothes the painful-throbbing-vein part of coupe ownership (although sat nav is no longer standard on all).

We love the latest R-Line trim, particularly in facelift guise: R looks, without the price tag or lack of diesel. It’s not even all that expensive, although prices have gone up with the facelift. Those fuel economy savings could just offset it.
