Ten Second Review

R-badged Volkswagens usually have four-wheel-drive but the Scirocco R doesn't. What it does have is 276 braked horses emanating from its 2.0-litre turbocharged engine, revised suspension and a noticeably more aggressive outlook than the standard cars. The extras come at a price but it gives VW's stylish coupe the capability to live with some top line performance cars.

Background

A car manufacturer on top of its game will always give its customers somewhere to go next. Volkswagen has shown itself to be a master of structuring and developing its model range to gently tease motorists up the hierarchy into increasingly desirable products that also happen to be more beneficial for its own coffers. For example, if the Volkswagen Golf is a little too discreet, there's always the GTI and if the GTI isn't pretty enough, the Scirocco coupe is on hand. If the Scirocco's low-slung lines appeal but its teeth seem insufficiently sharp, this R version is the answer. Admittedly, there isn't really anywhere to go from the R but would you want to? Volkswagen has offered R-badged versions of its models for a while, most notably with its Golf hatch. Once upon a time, top performance models from the Wolfsburg maker used to have V6 power but today, the brand's R cars offer a more subtle approach. The links to the Audi S3 remain but the modern donor car supplies its turbocharged four-cylinder engine, an upgrade of the one that has provided sterling service in the Golf GTI and Scirocco. In addition, while the Golf R gets a 4x4 drivetrain, the Scirocco R retains a front wheel drive layout in the interests of controlling costs and making sure everything would fit.

Driving Experience

The Volkswagen 2.0 TSI petrol engine is one of the great installations that you can order to fill the nose of your new car. It's available in numerous models across the various VW Group brands and all are better for its presence. In the Scirocco R, the four-cylinder unit has now been tuned to develop some 276bhp, offering you 15bhp than was available in the pre-facelifted Scirocco R model. As a point of reference, the pokiest Golf GTI gives you about 40bhp less. The reason why this Scirocco develops more grunt is down to its revised cylinder head, an upgraded intercooler and more turbo boost. The result is a very fast little coupe. The Scirocco R can step off the line and be at 62mph in 5.5s, the top speed of 155mph arriving not too long after that. That's about half a second slower than the 4WD Golf R. The real quality of the 2.0 TSI engine comes in the way it delivers its power. There's a little more turbo lag than in less highly strung versions of this engine but it's barely noticeable as the acceleration pours on in a smooth flow and response to throttle inputs remains brisk. Employing the 4x4 mechanicals we've come to expect from R-badged Volkswagens on the Scirocco R would have meant redesigning the car's rear suspension to make room. So, in the interests of keeping costs out of the stratosphere for a compact VW-badged coupe, the R is front-wheel-drive like every other Scirocco. There is the XDS electronic traction control system, though, to help the front tyres cope with all that grunt and you can have an optional DSG paddle shift gearbox which lowers the 0-62mph sprint time by a few tenths. Compared to standard Sciroccos, the R also has revised settings for its springs, dampers and anti roll bars. Not to mention a reduced ride height. It's much more than a more power and bigger spoiler job. The ride quality is particularly impressive, with the car flowing over the road surface. The Sport setting on the adaptive dampers might be too firm for some tastes and we found that the standard mode is fine for most driving conditions. The Scirocco has plentiful grip and little problem deploying its power with the XDS and traction control systems intervening gently when required.

Design and Build

The Scirocco looks great in its standard guises, poised, shapely, neat and suitably far removed from the three-door Golf it shares its platform with. It's even more menacing in Scirocco R guise. Visual changes with this improved model are slight. The head and tail lights are changed (the rears now using LEDs) and the bumpers have been re-profiled. As before, those bumpers sport a trio of large air-vents with gloss black slats and LED running lights built in. There are sill extensions too and more gloss black on the wing mirrors and the brake callipers that peep from the spokes of the 18" alloy wheels. At the rear, twin exhaust pipes emerge from a gloss black diffuser and a roof spoiler tops things off. The Scirocco cabin cocoons its occupants in Volkswagen design cues and build quality. The cocoon will be on the tight side for adults in the rear seats but the two front berths provide comfort, space and a well judged driving position for the person behind the three-spoke sports steering wheel. The dials illuminate in white with blue needles on this R model and there's piano black trim with silver detailing. It's still classy but with the right sprinkling of sport.

Market and Model

You could pay up to £34,000 for this car, if like most owners you choose the DSG auto version. For that kind of money, the Scirocco R has to be looking to transcend the hot hatchback and affordable coupe markets. That means it will have to lure buyers away from some pretty serious machinery. On the coupe front, the Nissan 370z looks tempting for similar money, as does a mid-range Audi TT. Golf roots and four-seat practicality will also see this fired-up Scirocco evaluated against top line performance hatchbacks like the Megane Renaultsport 275 and the Subaru Impreza WRX STI. It's a tough field to beat but the R's mix of class, pace and practicality gives it a fighting chance.

Cost of Ownership

The old Volkswagen recipe of giving its R cars four-wheel-drive and V6 power to maximise performance brought a commensurate rise in what it cost to run them. The Scirocco R should prove a usefully more cost effective ownership proposition with four cylinders and two driven wheels. In manual form, it will return over 35mpg on the combined cycle with the DSG gearbox improving economy by 0.4mpg. CO2 emissions are measured at 185g/km.
