“It must be completely different. Completely,” de Silva told “We don’t want to repeat the body style of the Scirocco, we want to change that.”

The current Scirocco, which is sold abroad and not on US soil, is currently based off of the previous generation Golf and while that is visible, there are very noticeable differences between the two visually. Volkswagen seeks to make the Scirocco more unique.

Time frame? de Silva said that we could expect an all-new Scirocco by the middle of this decade. But at the moment, it’s a work in progress.
