Just don’t judge us when if start crying on our keyboards because we can’t get a chance to enjoy the Scirocco R-Line.
Volkswagen’s pretty smart about how its approached the Scirocco. It knows that the sports hatch is a popular sell in Europe so by leaving out a few aesthetic and aerodynamic components, it can create an R-Line package that Scirocco customers will be rushing to buy.

It includes flared sills, fog lights, R-Line front and rear bumpers,ventilation grilles in the rear, a rear spoiler, black grille with an R-Line logo and a new set of 18-inch "Salvador" alloy wheels.

Inside, more upgrades are in store from the R-Line package, including fancy cloth upholstery with Alcantara bolsters, black headliner, "Carbon Touch" inlays, a leather sports steering wheel with the R-Line logo, Piano Black radio bezel. steering wheel accents and door pull handles, stainless-steel pedals, and aluminum sill plates that also feature the R-Line logo.
Optional add-on equipment includes a Leather Package Vienna that comes with R-Line logos, Crystal Grey stitching, heated seats, electric lumbar adjustment and a smattering of chrome accents, and a multifunction steering wheel.
