Finally, the Scirroco is in Australia. The only model to be offered for sale locally will be the 188kW Scirocco R. Try as we might we couldn’t get a meaningful reply from VW staffers on pricing. We figure high 40s list pricing is where you should be thinking. We can’t wait to drive the
new old Scirocco, but after seeing the car at AIMS we have to ask: why Viper Green? It’s a horrible colour.
Also new to the Volkswagen stand were the Touareg, Jetta, Multivan Edition 25 and Caddy 4motion. The new Jetta (due later this year) looks quite a bit nicer than we first thought. It’s never going to set the world alight with its styling, but that’s not its brief anyway. The new Touareg, too, is a pleasing evolution over its predecessor.
We like the look of the Mafiavan Edition 25. The Caddy 4motion is an interesting bit of kit, although it needs some seeing to for its ride height.
The Polo GTI is still a well sorted looking car, if only supply issues weren’t such a drag. The Golf R still looks the business as well. Shame we had to lose the 3dr in order to get the Scirocco R, but sometimes you have to give a little to get a little.
