Named 'Iroc', he was introduced 2 years ago (2006) in Paris. At that time one could anticipate there would be a real VW-sports coupe again. Of course the basis is the 'Golf ', otherwise costs would have exploded. On the other hand, the designer team not created 'Golf' version Nr. X, but a lot of independent design. It can't be bad if VW polarizes a little even if it means that sure enough not everybody likes the respective vehicle.
Without the company logo, the 'Scirocco' would not really be identified as a VW model. Due to his length, the vehicle looks rather level. Seen from behind it reminds of a Volvo C 30 , however without the glass tailgate. The Scirocco`s rear door is a little bigger and more stable (picture 4). Should somebody get excited now about the high boot sill, the answer would be that this vehicle was not designed primarily as a shopping car and that a high boot sill provides for more stability with less car body weight.
The C pillar is exceptionally wide, but has drawn so strongly that it almost looks filigree. However, the nicest part of the car is the front end. Level, in spite of the front-wheel drive, with the fenders integrated in the bonnet, in between the nearly not recogniseable or interfering headlights which seem slightly toned. Particularly due to the low seat position view is anything apart from ideal, but the car is delightfully sporty. All in all it is a special one which has even retained a little usefulness. Maintained the name 'Iroc' would have been a blowoff! 08/08
