Scirocco R Line Added To Refreshed Lineup

The Volkswagen Scirocco range has been given a quick spring clean for 2012 that’s resulted in a new model, more equipment and even a lower price for the entry-level model.

Every model in the Scirocco range now gets the RNS 315 touchscreen satellite navigation thrown in for free. To make the new system more usable while on the move Volkswagen have also added a multi-function steering wheel as standard.

The entry-level Scirocco benefits from a drop in price, anything from £420 to £600 depending on the engine choice, while the wheels are changed to a set of 17-inch ‘Long Beach’ alloys.

New to the range is the Scirocco R Line. This trim level sits above the GT and boosts that model’s appeal with a unique bodykit and 19-inch ‘Lugano’ alloy wheels.  Up front are Nappa leather R Line sports seats, an R Line wheel and chrome pedal covers.

Finally, the Scirocco R remains proudly at the top of the range thanks to its 265 PS 2.0-litre TSI engine. As well as benefitting from the satellite navigation upgrade, it is also treated to Nappa leather upholstery as standard.

Following the price reduction the base Scirocco with 1.4-litre 122PS TSI now sneaks in below the £20k barrier at £19,650. The GT trim starts at £25,470 for the 210PS version of the 2.0-litre TSI and the R Line costs £26,995 with the same engine. The 265PS R is available for £30,575. All are available to order now.
