Firstly the dashboard has been revised with new-look dials and an auxiliary instrument cluster above the centre console, consisting of chronometer, charge pressure and oil temperature gauges which harps back to the 1974 models.

On models fitted with the optional bi-xenon headlights, the daytime running lights are LEDs within the main headlights. At the rear, all Scirocco now have LED tail lights, while the bumper has been reshaped with;the VW logo badge now acting as the tailgate release handle.
