Rumor: Volkswagen Scirocco in India as Shirako?

December 3, 2009, By Radimir Bobev


We heard a rumor that the Scirocco might be brought to India as Volkswagen Shirako/Shiroko, but that’s still uncofirmed news, so better take it with a pinch of salt. Volkswagen are known for their attention to detail and commitment to quality when it comes to designing vehicles. The Shirako once again proves this by delivering excellent qualities for a car of its class. It should become a hit among sports car lovers – it can reach 120 kmph from 80 in just 6 seconds, with a top speed of 250 kmph.

The car is also remarkably nature-friendly, emitting carbon at 194 g/km, which is quite low compared to recent models by other companies. Many of VW’s other models, like the Jetta and Passat have enjoyed remarkable success both in their home country as well as overseas.

The main thing that sets the Shirako apart from other cars is that it offers three engines –  two petrol-based ones and a diesel engine. The interior strikes with elegance, with finely crafted seats and nicely backlit controls, giving the car a relaxing and pleasing feeling. Along with the special systems controlling your ride’s comfort, this car will easily be a hit – the only downside is that it costs quite a lot, so if you’re looking for something more economic, you may want to look elsewhere.
