It's Official: The US is Not Going to Get the Upcoming VW Scirocco!

It’s official the US is not going to get the upcoming Volkswagen Scirocco.

VW of America boss Stefan Jacoby recently told Car and Driver that there is no room for the Scirocco here because of the GTI and R32. Jacoby also stated that the Phaeton could also return to the US with a diesel powertrain.

It’s interesting that the VW is worried that the Scirocco would cannibalize sales of the GTI and R32, but what about Europe? All three cars are going to be sold in Europe. Is it because Europe has a stronger love of hatchbacks than we do in the US?

Either way its sad. It’s another great car that the US will not get.
