Autocar: Scirocco R v Focus RS

Scirocco R v Focs RS

This video from Autocar, featuring the Volkswagen Scirocco R and the Ford Focus RS is a bit of a tease really. You see, neither car is currently available in Australia. Worse, it doesn’t look like that situation is going to change anytime soon.

However, that minor inconvenience doesn’t make either car less desirable. Indeed, in the Scirocco I probably have something of an unhealthy infatuation. I was recently in the market for a new car and, were the Scirocco available to me, I dare say it would have been right at the top of my list.

Written reviews for the Scirocco R have been around for a few weeks now, but somehow, I managed to miss this video review.

Check out the clip after the jump and see what you think. Which would you buy—the Volkswagen or the Ford?
