現在開催中のthe Geneva motor showでVolkswagenがマイナーチェンジされたNew Sciroccoを発表しました。
VW Scirocco and Scirocco R (2014) more power for tweaked coupe
VW’s Scirocco is rearming ahead of the new Audi TT’s reveal at the 2014 Geneva motor show. VW wants to blow Audi’s 2+2 coupe into the weeds with a double-whammy of more power and fuel economy.
So, along with tweaked looks and new interior toys, that’s exactly what all six Scirocco variants have been given.
Who will notice I’ve bought the new Scirocco?
Only the most ardent of VW anoraks. You bag LED rear lights on the facelifted car, plus new-look headlights. Regular Sciroccos get a Golf GTI-aping jawline, featuring the plastic Ferrari Testarossa-tribute side strakes in each corner. The other visual change is a reprofiled rear bumper and new alloy wheel designs. Scirocco Rs wear a bespoke bodykit with an angrier snout and rear wheelarch vents set into the hind quarters.
Inside, the ’Roc has sprouted a cluster of dash-top gauges, including a stopwatch, oil temperature, and turbo boost pressure. VW claims this is a tribute to the 1974 Scirocco, which is celebrating its 40th birthday this year. However, the eagle-eyed among you will note it’s simply a carryover gauge pod from the Beetle Turbo. The main change inside the cabin is actually the new steering wheel, borrowed from the Golf.
