Parkers overall rating: 4.5 out of 5 4.5

For a coupe the Scirocco R is quite practical. The high boot lip can make lifting larger or heavier items awkward, but the boot itself offers 312 litres of luggage space, which increases to 1,006 litres when you fold the rear seats down.

The two adult-sized seats in the rear make this coupe a practical car when out with friends or family.
