Looks a bit like a polo from the front... And a little lower.

I want it lower and a new range of colours new style head unit as the standard one looks crap compared to the one I have in my GT. Hope they pull their finger out as I need to order as new one November

I reckon that is probably a test mule for the next gen. Seems a bit strange VW would cover the front end just for a facelift and why leave it so late in the Sciroccos life. My bet is that under that bodyshell is the new MQB platform and engine which is why it looks lower as well.

I doubt its a mule for the next gen as it seems to fit too well most mules look obvious...I could be wrong though

Could be vw are going for a USA release. They've been crying out for the scirocco for years.

If it's just a face lift, then it stinks of a lack of imagination on VW's part.

The scirocco is a good looking car but it's lost a bit of what it once had as there are many that look very similar to it... Surely a revamp should be trying to reinstate the scirocco as a best in class?

Its not worth VW's time and money to release the Mk 3 in the states, especially with the last gen chassis and engines. Its not as though its going to have MQB and the newer TSI engines with the old body shell.

Its Autoexpress they specialise in photoshopping cars to sell magazines. I can't see VW are going to spend money doing a facelift just to bring out a brand new model next year.

That's the one, Flux.

There's been photos doing the rounds of a red Scirocco with a covered up front end, testing in the states. Just type in 'VW Scirocco Facelift Spy'.

That Auto Express link (I tried to share and somehow failed) is definitely photo shop work though. It's a blatant rip off of the new Golf R front bumper and head lights.

Every year since the Sciroccos release it's been "Nothing is going to happen blah blah. The new model is on its way next year"

To be honest I don't think anything will change other than a few LEDs cost £1700+ and newer engines.

Whatever they do they better do it soon. My cars coming upto 125,000 miles and although its as good as its always been I fancy a change.
