According to CarAdvice, VW Design Chief Walter de Silva told them that it was his desire to revolutionize the 4th generation Scirocco which is do out within 2-3 years:
“It must be completely different. Completely,” de Silva said.
“We don’t want to repeat the body style of the Scirocco, we want to change that.”
The lead stylist admitted the new Volkswagen Scirocco was still in the design phase, and said that – while confirmed for production – few specifics of the car had been signed off at this stage.
“At the moment it’s only a studio [project],” he said. “It’s not defined at the moment.
“We are still working … but we are looking 360 degrees.”
Will this be enough of a total design change to allow the Scirocco to finally be sold in the U.S. without fear of cannibalizing sales from the Golf or GTI? I sure hope so.
