The hatchback shape of the rear belies the common designation of the Scirocco as a coupe – though the term has seemingly evolved into a catch-all for any car with a sharply sloped roof. A hardtop coupe/convertible built using hardware from the Eos is widely rumored to be the car’s other variant.
Powertrain options are still up in the air as well. The much-maligned 2.5-liter inline-five probably won’t see duty in the Scirocco, with the base engine in Europe likely to be the 1.4-liter Twincharger. A performance version powered by the automaker’s ubiquitous 2.0-liter turbo four is probably in the plans, as well as numerous diesel powerplants.
