Performance is brisk on all Sciroccos, as even the 1.4 can do 0-62mph in 9.3 seconds, while at the other end of the scale the DSG-equipped R blasts to 62mph from rest in just 5.5 seconds and has to be electronically limited to a top speed of 155mph.

Volkswagen Scirocco R The fastest model of all is the Volkswagen Scirocco R, which gets a 276bhp 2.0-litre engine that can take the car from 0-62mph in just 5.5 seconds.
Also, the 1.4 TSI has a turbo and a supercharger. The 2.0 only has a turbo.
Is it fast? Yes. Very. The Scirocco R’s blown 2.0-litre engine generates a whopping 261bhp and 258lb ft of torque.
Quality. The Scirocco has typical Volkswagen solidity; there’s well-built, quality materials aplenty, lots of nice little details and high quality switches. The additional dials on top of the dashboard are a nice touch, and make the car feel more special than its Golf sibling.
turbocharged stratified injection Drivers may be aware that their TSI engine is a gas Volkswagen engine, but they may not know how this engine offers advantages over other gas engines. TSI stands for turbocharged stratified injection and was inspired by the Volkswagen TDI Clean Diesel and FSI direct fuel injection engines.
The Volkswagen Scirocco R Line is a brilliant all-rounder in terms of looks, efficiency and performance. … The Scirocco R Line is based on Scirocco GT spec, but it’s roughly a grand more expensive with a ‘like for like’ engine choice, so you’ll need to be quite committed to the car’s extra visual impact.
The Scirocco R is refreshingly old school in its approach to putting its power down. There’s no four-wheel drive system and no mechanical locking differential.
There’s also the racing simulation game Gran Turismo, known as GT. Finally, to help matters, some cars are badged GTS (GT Sport), GTR (GT Racing) or some other extra letter and there’s even GTD, to cover off on performance-oriented diesel cars, particularly those from the VW Group.

Fitted with both a supercharger and turbo, the 1.4-litre powerplant is a technical wonder. … That’s enough to propel the Scirocco from 0-62mph in eight seconds flat only eight-tenths-of-a-second slower than the 2.0-litre TSI.
The Scirocco is available with a choice of four petrol and two diesel engines. … The strong turbocharged 1.4-litre TSI in the test car is an impressive engine offering a fine balance of power and economy. It offers up its 125ps of power from 5,000 6,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 200 Nm from 1,400 rpm to 4,000 rpm.
What is it? The entry-level Scirocco. Despite its diminuitive capacity, the 1.4-litre engine comes with Volkswagen’s ‘Twincharger’ system, meaning it boasts both a supercharged and a turbocharger, meaning it’s power figures aren’t far off those delivered by the 2.0-litre version.
They’re very different to drive. This is good news. The fear had been that we’d get the new mk6 Golf GTI on the same roads as the Scirocco 2.0 TSI and discover that we couldn’t tell them apart. …

At speed, the Golf R and Scirocco R have that dependable, sturdy VW feel. They handle well, even when you push hard. Clearly the Golf R is faster, though, more powerful and more capable of putting that power down in a variety of conditions. It therefore wins another point.
The important thing is the Scirocco is even more fun to drive than the Golf GTI. For starters it sounds a bit throatier; a bit more Winehouse than Melua. The steering is more accurate, the body rolls less and there’s more grip. The boot is up to hatchback standard but the opening is quite a bit tighter.
Fuel economy It may be a sports coupe but the Scirocco doesn’t have to be expensive to run. All the engines in the line-up return decent economy but the diesel is the best with an average of 52mpg.
Maintaining a Scirocco will cost more than running an equivalent VW Golf, but this isn’t to say it’s expensive. … Expect servicing costs to be on a par with the Golf, though, and there are a number of plans available for newer cars.
A sporty model that looks great and carries the Volkswagen badge of prestige, the VW Scirocco is a great choice in the diesel variant as it holds value well.
Which is better, TSI or TDI? The TDI engine is a diesel engine that’s made by the Volkswagen Group. TDI stands for ‘Turbocharged Direct Injection. … While most modern TSI engines are capable of excellent fuel economy of 45mpg or more, they generally fall short of TDI engines, some of which manage over 65mpg.
The VW 2.0 TSI / TFSI EA888 is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline turbocharged engine based on the 1.8 TSI/TFSI of EA888 series. The production of the 2.0 TSI engine started in March 2008. … Just like the 1.8 TSI engine, this two-liter version went through a series of changes during the production time.
TDI (Turbocharged Direct Injection) is a marketing term used by Volkswagen Group for its turbocharged diesel engines that have an intercooler in addition to the turbo compressor.
Expecting the Golf to outsell the Scirocco as its mass-production car, VW pushed the Scirocco ahead of the Golf’s release to ensure any manufacturing complications were sorted. … In the late ’80s, VW decided that the Scirocco would be no more, and discontinued it in favor of its successor, the Corrado.

Volkswagen has officially pulled the plug on its Scirocco coupe 43 years after production originally started. As part of a move to streamline its model line-up in the wake of the Dieselgate scandal, Volkswagen has stopped producing the Golf-based model.
