2015 Volkswagen Scirocco; Beautiful and Affordable
The original Scirocco had been a great success for VolksWagen and back in 2008 the fans were real excited on the news that VW would be making a remake of the car. It delivered what was expected and now we should all be ready for 2015 Volkswagen Scirocco, which seems like good to drive, great on looks and surprisingly cheap. Let’s dive in a little deeper and explore what the vehicle has to offer.
We’ll talk about interior first – unlike the rest of the car and its features, the interior has been slightly on the lower side, receiving some good amount of criticism. Many drivers and reviewers are of the opinion that VW has failed to create an equally impressive interior as compared with the rest of the car. Sitting inside the car gives you the same old VW feeling, which does not mean that it’s not good but people were expecting something far more superior. Visibility is not good due to thick pillars and narrower rare window. Moving on to the leg space, at times drivers might feel cramping for room. However, there is ample space for people sitting at the back – that is not because of the design but due to the fact that there are only 2 rare seats. The trunk at the back is spacious, which means that this vehicle can be a good companion on longer routes if you have no more than 4 passengers.
2015 Volkswagen Scirocco comes in both petrol and diesel engine, each offering a mix of affordability and class. Petrol engines are available in two denominations – a 1.4 & 2.0-litres. The 1.4-liter petrol engine is all about great fuel consumption and won’t be winning you a grand prix. It produces 123 hp and goes from 0 to 60 mph in 10 seconds, which is pretty decent when you compare it with the amazing 52 mpg (combined) mileage. The 2.0 petrol and diesel engine produces 178 hp and 148 hp respectively.
2015 Volkswagen Scirocco has a five star Euro NCAP safety rating. The vehicle is stuffed with multiple air bags, active head restraints and stability control as standard. Additionally you can get dynamic chassis control coupled with differential electronic lock, which prevents the vehicle from crashing.
The vehicle is available at an affordable price of $31,430 which is cheaper than most of the competitors and also its sibling, The Golf. The running cost as well as the spare parts and servicing is also very affordable. The fact that Scirocco is pretty desirable will guarantee a higher residual value after 3 or 5 years. So, if you’re one of those who change models after every 3 years – 2015 Volkswagen Scirocco is still a car to be considered.
If you can bear with the visibility issue and interior that is not impressive to say the least then 2015 Volkswagen Scirocco is THE car for you this year.
