2014 Volkswagen Scirocco facelift revealed with updated look and engines

Volkswagen has revealed the 2014 Scirocco facelift ahead of its debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March, with first cars arriving in dealerships in August.

The Scirocco has been on the market for six years and the updated model should keep it fresh at most 3-4 years, before next-generation model arrives.

The changes to the exterior are not very big and some folks might even miss the changes. We can see new updated front bumper with new bi-xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights, as well as a new grille. At the rear is an updated bumper, restyled LED taillights and a boot lid.

There are also five new exterior colours called Pyramid Gold, Urano Grey, Flash Red, Pure White and Ultra Violet, along with new alloy wheel designs. Interior updates include new materials, redesigned flat-bottomed leather-wrapped steering wheel, new air vents and gauges.

All engines come with stop/start and battery regeneration mode, with the exception of the range topping 276bhp 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine in the Scirocco R. The updated engine packs extra 15bhp. The Scirocco R also features bespoke bumpers, new alloy wheel design and sports seats.

Other engine choices include a 123bhp 1.4-litre petrol (+3bhp), a new 177bhp 2.0-litre and a 217bhp 2.0-litre TSI engine, replacing the 207bhp engine.

Diesel range includes a 148bhp or 181bhp 2.0-litre TDI.

All engines are linked to six-speed manual as standard, with seven-speed DSG gearbox optional with some engines.

The updated engines return between 68.9 and 34.9 mpg – an improvement up to 19 per cent compared to the outgoing model.
