New VW Scirocco: Not Before 2017
Auto Bild also states that the model will remain a Golf derivative and that it will keep its four-seater layout and generous rear hatch. This basically means that a major rethink is not going to be made.
Other Vdubs which AutoBild say are coming by 2020 include the Phaeton for 2015, the T6 van and passenger van for 2015 as well, plus a roster of crossovers and SUVs, ranging from the Taigun to a 7-seater vehicle. They also say the next generation Polo is coming in 2015 and will have LED headlights.
Our say: The Scirocco was supposed to have a complete transformation for the next generation, which was supposed to arrive sooner. We think the market case for the car has changed because they are going to launch it in the US next year.
