Next Scirocco May Go Performance with 300HP RS Model

But VW needs help making up its mind.

According to Car Magazine, this generation of the hatchback-coupe may come with a high-performance, lightweight RS version, possibly even sporting a 4Motion all-wheel drive platform.

Such a car would presumably come with more than 300 horsepower underhood, matching the car’s output to what will presumably be an even more stunning exterior on the next generation. On the other hand, VW is also considering the complete opposite: they might make it cheaper, more practical and more of a low-roofed, 3-door Golf – which would certainly boost sales but leave enthusiasts disappointed.
