Revisions include new head and LED tail lights, with new bumpers featuring aerodynamic ‘blades’ in the outer section, similar to the Golf GTI, with integrated indicator lights, daytime running lights and fog lights. On models with (optional) bi-xenon headlights, the daytime running lights are LEDs within the main headlights.
There are new alloy wheel designs across the range include new 19-inch ‘Cadiz’ alloys for the Scirocco R model.
The dashboard has been revised with new dials and a retro inspired auxiliary instrument cluster above the centre console, consisting of chronometer, charge pressure and oil temperature gauges, like the first generation 1970’s Scirocco.
