Volkswagen Scirocco GTS

Some cars really suit a pair of full length over-body stripes: the Dodge Viper GTS, Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger, for example. The jury’s still out on whether the Volkswagen Scirocco belongs in that category, though.

So stylistically the new Scirocco GTS is probably going to divide opinion, as its look is defined by the aforementioned stripes. Indeed, the only four colour schemes on offer are black paintwork with white stripes and red door mirror caps, grey with black stripes and red mirror caps, red with black stripes and white mirrors or white with black stripes and red mirrors.

Based on the existing R-Line variant, the specification of the GTS also includes red stitching for the black leather seats, a panoramic sunroof, a unique steering wheel, door sill plates with ‘GTS’ etched on them, piano black trim pieces and some special floor mats. However, it seems a bit odd that the R-Line’s regular 19” alloy wheels have been downgraded to 18” items.

Available with either a TDI diesel or a TSI petrol engine and a choice of six-speed manual or DSG automatic dual-clutch transmissions, the GTS models carry a price premium of up to £1,460 over their respective R-Line equivalents:
  • GTS 2.0 litre TSI manual - £27,945
  • GTS 2.0 litre TSI DSG - £29,345
  • GTS 2.0 litre TDI manual - £27,980
  • GTS 2.0 litre TDI DSG - £29,395
