...you *should* drive the new VW Scirocco.

We've had two models at our offices this week. The 170hp diesel and the 200hp tsi petrol.

I get to drive a lot of cars, a lot of fast cars with my job. For the class of car the Scirocco is, it is absaloutely amasing.

The 2.0 tsi is the better engine, and coupled to the dsg gearbox it is sublime.

Seriously, you won't find a better driving car for circa £20k.

Is this one of those models that's only sold in europe; or do Americans (like me) also have an opportunity to purchase this car? It really does look like a fine automobile.

I'm not sure to be honest.

You should ask your boss or a co-worker for me.

Nobody here really knows! (despite being motoring journalists!).

We think it's planned for a 2010 release in the us. There are certainly shots of it around the US.

Hi, sorry for barging in, but as a VW fan I think I can provide some light on the subject.

The Sirocco is now only for the European market, VW of Mexico said. There were no plans to import them or produce them in America (or at least in Latin America) for the time being.

And Yeah, VWs rule. I love my '69 Beetle that runs like a charm.
