The VW Scirocco turns six this yea, and it is expected to soldier on for another three to four years before its replacement takes over. So VW gave it a face lift, along with a powertrain mod.
The 2014 Scirocco doesn't look like its changed much, and VW gave it a new front with new bi-xenon headlamps with LED accents, a re-profiled bumper and tweaked grille, while the rear is updated with its newly designed LED tail lamps, boot lid and bumper.
There are also five fresh colors, including the "Pure White", "Flash Red", "Urano Grey", "Ultra Violet" and "Pyramid Gold", along with a new selection of alloy wheel designs, round out the updates for the outside.
Under the hood, all available four-cylinder turbocharged gasoline and diesel mills are either new or upgraded to provide improved power and fuel economy figures over the previous engines.
The petrol lineup includes four units, starting with the 1.4-liter TSI that produces 125PS / 123bhp (+3hp), and continuing with three 2.0-liter TSIs delivering 180PS / 178bhp (+20hp), 220PS / 217bhp (+10hp) and the range-topping 280PS / 276hp (+15hp) for the Scirocco R.

However there are now legal ways, in which costs can be recovered from the uninsured drivers involved in traffic accidents. Recovering costs is something that careful and insured drivers should do after uninsured drivers have caused or contributed to accidents.
