Come on, didn't the grand old company give us a 50L Evo, which btw is a pain to drive in the city.
But do you know how many Evo HM has managed to sell so far? I doubt they have sold more than 25 Evos.

It does not make sense for VW to bring Scirocco in for 25+ lacs price region. Keep in mind, they also have to provide A.S.S to the prospective owners and it will be painful for a company to provide a.s.s to small number of cars.

Personally, I think VW Scirocco is THE BEST LOOKING HATCH in the world. I just love that wide, low and menacing stance of this beast.

Isn't there a remote chance of getting Scirocco with may be a 1.2TSI Heart by VW India? Im sure VW would burn more than just roads under this hatch!!

It looks awesome, no doubt, but once you’re in the front seat, it’s so identical to the Golf. Even the engines are same. And being a fancy Golf is not a bad thing – Golf is an exceptionally good car

The Sirocco, if at all it gets launched, will be priced on par or higher than the Jetta. How many hatchbacks/small cars are ever sold in India at that price except the fancy beetle and fiat 500 - practically none. I don't expect VW to launch their large hatchbacks ever in India.

This beauty was found zooming past me for some time and couldn’t take pictures then. Finally spotted it being parked near my apartment.

You can find many VW Sciroccos in China right. I saw many during my visit there. Here's one that I clicked.

Scirocco GTS was showcased in the Leipzig Auto Show last year, and went on sale in the UK earlier this year. Its basically a special edition variant based on the Scirocco R.

By the way, the next gen Scirocco is expected somewhere in 2015. Apparently it will be completely different from the current one, with a reworked design/body-style.

The first I.D. – a Golf-sized family hatch – is due in 2020, and it’ll be another couple of years after that before for the sportier Scirocco-style variant .

The Volkswagen Scirocco will be reinvented as a sporty two-door EV coupe for its next generation, and it will be based on the company’s new all-electric MEB platform, Auto Express can reveal.

Scirocco EV will share many of its components with VW’s forthcoming I.D. family of pure-electric cars. That will allow the new model to keep the current car’s compact dimensions and offer vastly improved interior space.
