Those with grey hair may remember the instrument cluster above the centre console that graced early Sciroccos. They’re back as part of an updated dash

Inside, the dashboard has been updated, with an instrument cluster above the centre console that houses a chronometer and charge pressure and oil temperature gauges, a feature designed to echo the similar instrumentation found on the first Scirocco models back in 1974.

Externally, the revised Scirocco gets new headlights and tail lights – they’re new LEDs – as well as modified bumpers.

The Volkswagen badge on the tailgate now also doubles as a release handle. There are new alloy wheel designs, including optional “Talladega” alloys that were previously only available on the sporty “R” model.

Otherwise, the Scirocco R retains its distinct look, and now comes with now comes as standard with 18-inch ‘Cadiz’ alloy wheels similar to those on the Golf R.

There are six new EU6-compliant tubocharged direct-injection petrol and diesel engines.

On the petrol side, there’s a 1.4-litre petrol with 125PS (previously 122), a new 2.0-litre 180PS unit that the previous 160PS version of the 1.4, and a 2.0-litre TSI with 220PS (previously 210).

The revised Scirocco R uses a 2.0-litre unit producing 280PS (previously 265).

Two two-litre diesels will be offered, with 150PS or 184PS and combined fuel consumption of up to 68.9mpg.

Gearbox choices are six-speed manuals and six- or seven-speed self-shifting DSG transmissions.
