Volkswagen Scirocco 2.0 TSI 180 BlueMotion Tech GT 3dr
9+23 8k Miles p/a
Initial Payment: £1,441.35

£160pm inc. VAT
Am I alone in thinking the Scirocco is really ugly? Seems badly proportioned to me, certainly not a looked.

I can't see the point of it. It looks worse than the Golf and is also less practical.... just get a Golf?
Really? For me the scirocco looks 10 times better than the golf.

Apart from the wheels and exhaust the golf pretty much looks like every other vag hatchback on the road.

It's very well overdue a facelift/new model though whereas the Golf is pretty fresh

That looks a good deal to me. I read good reports about them, bags of fun!
That's tempting, and they do a five door model which is useful for me - shame they don't do a five door ST.
Just got one of those for my sister but on a 3+23 as she didn't have the money for a 9 deposit. £400 something down, £130 something per month. Impressive stats that 1.0 ecoboost.

.

+1 that's why I've never had a Golf as they look so bland.!

Thanks for info on the Fiesta ST deal, I've passed it onto my son who is considering a lease deal to replace his Suzuki Swift

Not sure if it belongs in here but Arnold Clark Glasgow have a good PCP deal on pre registered Passats. 4 year deal, no deposit. 2 years free servicing. 177 quid a month for the 1.6s rising to 239 for the 2.0 se business estate DSG.

A couple of my friends have just signed up for them. It's for 5k a year but an additional 5k can be purchased for 19 quid a month.

I agree about the anonymity of the Golf, that's exactly what I like about it, and why I have an R Estate on order. I don't want something too bling and shouty.

But to me the Scirocco looks like it is squatting, taking a st :-)

It's good that we all like different cars, the road would be a dull place if it was only full of grey/white/black BMW/Merc/Audi..... hang on.... it almost is.

I like lots of the quirky French stuff, but have never bought any as the engines, feel & execution never seem quite good enough.

Thanks, looking in to taking up this. Small detail maybe, but there is a £150 processing fee, so it makes it £154.46. Just mentioning in case it makes it close/far away from the price of an alternative car.

EDIT: On a 3+23 10k that makes it £448.05 + £150 fee + 149.35 a month = £168.05 amortised. Not sure if that is good or not but I would rather the smaller monthly.

Edited due to mileage correction

I have one. If you have lots of hill starts I urge anyone to test drive it first. Even in dynamic mode there is an enormous hole in the delivery on the engine. It's like trying to pull out into traffic in a 1980s turbo (starting in second).

Does do 50-55mpg on a motorway run (even with roof bars on) though. And is impressively quiet and comfortable.
I recall being shot down when mentioning that the cheap A4 deals were on generally underpowered cars, like the 1.4 TFSi. A bargain can really blind people to reason. Considering so many people blind buy lease cars it's nuts.

Can it really be that bad or is this just a 'petrol head' view of a decent normal engine? I had a Golf 1.4tfsi as a rental for a couple of weeks a while ago and the engine and performance were absolutely fine.

Is driving round a flatspot in the A4s delivery any different to driving round the power oversteer on a wet roundabout in an AMG?
(Apart from the fun factor)

It's a case of adjusting your driving style, at first it caught me out a few times but now I compensate for it so not so much of a problem although I wouldn't buy this car with this engine fitted because of it.

At 190bhp I would not say the Alltrack is under powered - there is a delay to everything it does though - pulling out of a junction or roundabout into busy traffic takes a leap of faith, so you do end up driving around it.

I had a 1.2tsi when my R was in for a service and was actually surprised at how well it went for such a small engine.
