For The Scirocco has sharp lines and drives sweetly, with grippy handling, precise steering and fine engines. Rear space is OK and the prices are attractive.
Against The few drawbacks are limited to the cramped headroom in the rear seats and the dinky boot.
Sleeker and sportier than the Golf on which it's based, yet it's still surprisingly affordable. An absolute steal.
The Scirocco is a great purchase no matter what engine you opt for.
If youâ€™re looking for performance, the 2.0 TSI has brilliant flexibility, ample grunt and very reasonable running costs.
Although the 1.4 TSI versions lack the outright pace of the bigger 2.0-litre model, they still offer the sharp handling and responsive dynamics that make the Scirocco a driverâ€™s car.
The 2.0 TDI diesel engine is not what most would traditionally associate with a sports coupe, but it makes perfect sense if you want an affordable and comfortable cruiser that doesnâ€™t sacrifice desirability and B-road ability.
The 2.0-litre models have the option of a six-speed semi-automatic DSG box in place of the standard six-speed manual, but itâ€™ll set you back a four-figure sum and doesnâ€™t add that much to the experience.
Resale values should be excellent and, although discounts are possible, don't expect them to be particularly huge.
