The Volkswagen Scirocco has been named ‘Best coupé’ in What Car? magazine’s Used Car of the Year awards, at an event held at London’s Hurlingham Club last night.
The sporty yet practical coupé, which went on sale in 2008, is no stranger to awards, including What Car?’s own ‘Best Coupé under £25,000’ in 2010, and more recently coming fifth overall in the 2014 What Car?/JD Power customer satisfaction survey.
Commenting on the Scirocco’s win, What Car? Editor Jim Holder said: ‘The Scirocco offers great value for money in a very competitive package. It’s good to look at, it’s good to drive and it really turns heads. And now the prices have come down it’s more appealing than ever.’
The winning Scirocco was the 2009 model-year 1.4-litre TSI 160 PS model. A choice of engines is available, from a 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol via a frugal yet feisty 2.0-litre turbodiesel to the riotous 265 PS Scirocco R, all with a choice of manual or DSG gearboxes. A wide range of used Scirocco models can be found via Volkswagen’s own approved used scheme, Das Welt Auto. See www.volkswagen.co.uk/used for details.
The latest, freshly revised Volkswagen Scirocco is also now available in Volkswagen Retailers, at prices starting from £20,455. For details of this, and the rest of Volkswagen’s range of cars, or to locate your nearest Volkswagen Retailer, visit www.volkswagen.co.uk.
