VW's Scirocco diesel: A sheep in Wolfsburg’s clothing

Good Lord no.

Doesn't handle, doesn't go, it's just a slow, splodgy exercise in how not to make a fast coupe.

Unless you like to understeer everywhere while getting no better than 24mpg?

An RX7 would be a far more elegant choice, although you do have to take a deep breath at the petrol pumps, but at least it looks good (bloody fantastic actually - shows what the japanese can do when they aren't aping europe as they used to back in the 90s) and handles terribly well to offset that terrifying fuel economy.

Also mighty tunable.

Friends don't let friends buy Mitsubishi GTOs. Bit like Corsas and Vectras.
