It’s been rumored for some time now that Volkswagen is considering the Scirocco for the stateside. At the end of last year, we even heard reports that the Scirocco may come to the U.S. as a limited-edition high-performance hatchback so it doesn’t hurt the sales of the Golf or the GTI.
Unfortunately, according to Tom Wegehaupt, Volkswagen of America’s PR coordinator, plans to bring the Scirocco to the U.S. have been cancelled. Wegehaupt told AutoBlog that the company couldn’t make a business case for a U.S. Scirocco and feared that it may take away from the new 206-hp Volkswagen GTI.
Now, you can either settle for the GTI or you can call Volkswagen and express your anger.
