It doesn’t take long to realize that the new 2009 Volkswagen Scirocco is a better drive than the highly praised Golf GTI. The two might share much of their underpinnings, but the adoption of wider tracks ensures the former is more sure-footed around the Nürburgring.
And we know this because we’re driving the 2009 Volkswagen Scirocco on the Nürburgring, part of a final-check ride of VW’s newest performance vehicle before it goes on sale in Europe this summer.
We’re trying not to crash. Good thing the Scirocco is on our side, as it’s great on this long track’s more technical sections, like that running through Wippermann and down into the Brunchen. It remains nicely composed even when you charge into the corner and abruptly lift the throttle before stabbing the brakes and charging off up to Eschbach and the Pflanzgarten.
