Scirocco may come to USA after all

Back in March, Volkswagen announced that Scirocco will not be offered on the US market . The company feared it would take sales from the Golf GTI. The strong euro also was a factor. But today Automotive news reports that Scirocco may be exported to the US after all.

But prodding from enthusiasts and the Scirocco’s popularity in Europe has VW executives rethinking that decision, said Steve Keyes, a company spokesman. The dollar’s gain also doesn’t hurt.

"People are looking at: ’Would it make sense? What are the volumes?’ and all that," Keyes said at a press event here last week. "There’s no real decision yet," he added. Keyes also said the car may be positioned "a little bit differently."
