The 2014 Volkswagen Scirocco facelift has returned in a second batch of spy photos taken in the United States.The redesigned Scirocco is aiming to be a full-fledged sports coupe, which means it could lose some of its stylish design. It will however, remain a four seater with a large tailgate and plenty of cargo space in the trunk.
It appears only the front section is receiving an update, despite the Scirocco being largely unchanged since its launch in 2008. Expect some sharper lines and a wedge grille similar to that added to the 2013 CC. The shape of the headlights will also be tweaked and will likely feature some new LED elements.
Other Vdubs which AutoBild say are coming by 2020 include the Phaeton for 2015, the T6 van and passenger van for 2015 as well, plus a roster of crossovers and SUVs, ranging from the Taigun to a 7-seater vehicle. They also say the next generation Polo is coming in 2015 and will have LED headlights.
Those reading that famous moniker as an indication of extra horses should look elsewhere; the GTS offers no extra power hike, and thus uses the familiar 2.0-litre turbocharged TSI petrol engine producing 207bhp. Which means a 0-62mph time of 6.9 seconds and top speed of 149mph. Would have been better with the 260bhp 'R' version, but at least you get a dimpled golf-ball gear lever knob.
