Concept R to inspire new coupe
When it goes into production VW could call it the Scirocco, which was originally a Golf-based coupe in the 1980s.
It will take its styling cues from VW's 2003 Frankfurt Motor Show stunner, the Concept R.
In production guise this 2+2 seater will also share its design with that of the new Eos coupe cabriolet and Passat.
The new coupe will share its underpinnings with that of the Jetta and it VW will offer it with three engine choices.
The entry-level model will get the company's new 1.4-litre Twincharger FSI unit and it will also be available with the GTI's 147kW 2-litre turbocharged engine.
Under the bonnet of the range-topping model will the new 3.2-litre V6 engine of the Golf R32.
