3-door 4-seater hatchback coupé.

Karmann-built, Giugiaro-styled, built on new Golf floorpan and running gear, but actually pre-dating it by several months. At Karmann, effectively a successor to the Karmann-Ghia, but much better in all respects, with agile front-wheel-drive handling, svelte good looks and various derivatives (all with same sheet metal). The best Sciroccos had the Golf GTI engine of 110bhp (LHD at first, RHD from mid-1979 as GLi, with an automatic option), which was good for 110-115mph. Replaced in 1981 by much less stylish if more roomy Scirocco 2. Some say the Scirocco GTI was as exciting as the hatchback from which it took its engine.
