2014 Volkswagen Scirocco Facelift - New Engines and Styling Updates
Volkswagen has officially unveiled the 2014 Scirocco Facelift. The hot hatchback will make its public debut at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, in March. The new model is not completely reworked and it has a lot of features from the previous one.
The exterior boasts a slightly modified front bumper, new bi-xenon headlights with LED DRLs and different grille. At the rear, we can see LED taillights as well as modified rear bumper and boot lid. The same changes can be found the on the R-model.
There are five new exterior paint finishes: Pyramid Gold, Urano Grey, Flash Red, Pure White and Ultra Violet. There are also new alloy wheel designs and some upgrades for the interior like an additional set of gauges for the oil temperature, chronometer and turbocharger pressure.
Other highlights include a new flat-bottomed leather-wrapped steering wheel, new air vents and gauges, a "Dynaudio Excite" audio system and a ParkAssist system.
The engine range will include revised power units like the 1.4 TSI with 125HP (92 kW) and three variants for the 2.0 TSI – 180HP (125 kW), 220HP (162 kW) and 280HP (207 kW). The diesel engines are also improved – the 2.0 TDI now delivers 150HP (116 kW) and 184HP (135 kW).
All engines now come as standard with stop/start and battery regeneration mode, with the exception of the 280 HP motor inside the Scirocco R. Engines are coupled to a 6-speed manual gearbox or an optional dual-clutch DSG (not available for the 1.4 TSI) sending power to the front wheels.
The 2014 Volkswagen Scirocco is expected to hit the market in August.
