Volkswagen have revealed the facelifted Scirocco and Scirocco R ahead of their Geneva Motor Show debuts.
Opening for orders in May, for September delivery, the new vehicles will boast engines offering up to 280PS and improved fuel efficiency of up to 68.9mpg.
Five new tubocharged direct-injection petrol and diesel engines are offered: 1.4litre 125PS, 2.0litre 180PS and 2.0litre TSI 220PS petrols, and a 2.0litre diesel with either 150PS or 184PS.
Depending on power output both petrol and diesel engines come with a choice of six-speed manual and six or seven-speed DSG gearbox.
Externally, the Scirocco has been refined and modernised with new headlights and tail lights, as well as revised bumper styling.
The range-topping Scirocco R also boasts bespoke bumpers and 18inch ‘Cadiz’ alloy wheels, and is paired with a new 2.0litre 280PS unit.
