Volkswagen has announced a new entry-level specification and two additional engines for the Scirocco coup, which are now available for ordering from Volkswagen retailers. Prices for the entry-level model, fitted with a 1.4-litre TSI 160 PS engine, start at 18,790 RRP on the road, opening the possibility of Scirocco ownership to a wider audience.

At launch in September, the Scirocco was only available in range-topping GT trim. The new engines are now available in base trim which still benefits from a comprehensive list of standard equipment including a six-CD autochanger, rain and dusk sensor, multifunction computer, air-conditioning and exclusive 17-inch "Donington" alloy wheels. Safety features also, of course, remain a priority, with ABS, ESP (Electronic Stabilisation Programme) and six airbags all standard.

The 1.4-litre TSI 160 PS engine accelerates the Scirocco from 0 to 62 mph in just 8.0 seconds while returning 42.8 mpg (combined) and emitting 154 g/km of CO2. In addition, the new entry-level and GT models are now available with Volkswagen's popular 2.0-litre TDI 140 PS common rail diesel engine linked to either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic DSG gearbox. Both manual and DSG versions reach 62 mph in 9.3 seconds while achieving a combined figure of 55.4 mpg (51.4 for DSG) and 134 g/km of CO2 (145 for DSG).

The Scirocco is the most technically advanced production coup that Volkswagen has produced and all models also benefit from Adaptive Chassis Control (ACC) which operates via a set of four electrically adjustable dampers to alter the car's suspension, steering and throttle response set-up, and allows the driver to choose the most appropriate setting for the journey.
