Next-gen VW Scirocco being prepped image

The German based automaker Volkswagen is planning to introduce the next generation of the Scirocco in a couple of year and it’s promising to the revolutionary.

When it was revived back in 2008, the Scirocco name itself managed to attract a lot of buyers, from young people looking for a new ride which looks different than anything on the market to celebrities who remembered the classic one. But while the Scirocco is still enjoying some good sales figures, the company is planning to develop a new generation.

“It must be completely different. Completely. We don’t want to repeat the body style of the Scirocco, we want to change that. At the moment, it’s only a studio [project]. It’s not defined at the moment. We are still working…but we are looking 360 degrees”, as the VW Group head of design, Walter de Silva, said.

The new generation of the Volkswagen Scirocco will be a front-wheel drive model but all-wheel drive might be offered as an option. The future Scirocco will ride on the MQB platform, the same one underpinning the new Golf 7, the new Audi A3 or the new Seat Leon, amongst others. The completely redesigned Scirocco will hit the market in 2015. Additional details on it remain unknown for the moment.
