2012 VW Scirocco gets cheaper, adds R Line trim

Volkswagen has had a play with the Scirocco range for 2012, adding equipment, cutting prices and adding an R Line trim.

The Volkswagen Scirocco is a good little coupe. We wish the Scirocco R had the 4WD the Golf R gets, but other than that it’s stylish, quite individual and,despite its FWD setup, fun.

But the Scirocco is a few years in to its life now, the competition is getting a little stiffer and VW think it’s time to have a little play to boost interest. Not a facelift, but a bit of fiddling at the edges to make the Scirocco a bit more appealing.

There’s been a small price drop in the entry-level Scirocco, and every model now gets touchscreen SatNav, even the entry-level Scirocco which drops in price between £420 and £600 depending on whether you have the 1.4 TSI or 2.0 TDI. Also thrown in to the price is a multifunctional steering wheel and 17″ ‘Long Beach’ alloys. You can also have  Adaptive Chassis Control (ACC) as an option.

The Scirocco GT now gets Nappa leather with heated front seats, Climate, fogs, privacy and 18″ ‘Interlagos’ alloys and the new R Line spec adds to the GT spec with a bodykit that offers butch sills and new bumpers, 19″ ‘Lugano’ alloys, Nappa R Line Sports seats and R Lien steering wheel.

The top of the tree Scirocco R doesn’t change much, but it does get the touchscreen SatNav and Nappa leather is now standard.

Nothing major for the Scirocco, just a bit of extra value and a new model to sit between the GT and R spec with the new Scirocco R Line.

The 2012 VW Scirocco – including the new Scirocco R Line – is now on sale.
