Previous reports suggested that the 2014 VW Scirocco or 2015 model would be offered with completely redesigned exterior and that this vehicle will be a start of a new generation. Latest reports suggest that new gen will be delivered in 2017 and until than the 2014 model will be offered as a redesigned model.
Currently available generation of Scirocco was delivered in 2007 and was based on Golf mark V. Reason for this late refreshment and not the delivery of new model is simple, since the sale results of roadsters and coupes in Europe are weak we will not be getting new generation until 2017. Only slight changes will be offered to make it competitive on the market but nothing revolutionary is expected.
2014 VW Scirocco Release Date
Main difference that the facelifted 2014 VW Scirocco will bring is about engines. We are getting Euro 6 ready units with slightly more power and better torque delivery but that is not all. Exterior design will be slightly different while we will be getting few more assistance systems and changes to the interior. Tail lights are redesigned, this and other small changes will be noticeable only to those that know this model very well.
Base model with 1.4 TSI will offer 125 hp instead of 122 while the more powerful version of this unit of 160 hp will be replaced with 1.8 liter unit of 180 hp. Well known 2.0 TSI engine will now delivered 230 hp instead of 210 that previous version offers while the torque will receive even more massive increase, instead of 280 NM or 206 lb-ft it will deliver 370 NM or 273 lb-ft. Performances will be upgraded and delivery of more power and torque will be certainly noticed on the road and track.
Top of the range 2014 VW Scirocco R model will come with engine that should pump more than 300 hp, currently available R version offers 265 hp. Diesel representatives will also benefit from this power increase and the 140 hp model will be bumped to 150 hp while the 177 hp version of 2.0 liter turbocharged diesel unit will offer 184 hp. Diesel units are quite popular in Europe and again it is expected that it will dominate the sale results when it comes to the market.
Specs Of 2014 Scirocco
When it comes to interior we do expect many changes to be offered here, it will make it much more pleasant place to be with better materials and improved ergonomics. Most likely we will be getting all the latest technology that Volkswagen has to offer and we were able to see in other models. New touchscreen interface is expected while the safety technology will include Automatic Post Collision Braking System that will automatically apply brakes in case of accident which will allow reduction of residual kinetic energy.
Most likely the all new 2014 VW Scirocco will be presented at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show that starts in March. Price will remain on the same level like before only few hundred $ higher just like with all new models. More details and information’s about this vehicle will be offered after the official launch and we will deliver those here so stay tuned.
