Volkswagen Scirocco R boot space, practicality and safety

2010 - 2018 (change model)
Practicality rating: 3.5 out of 53.5

Written by Simon McBride Published: 6 June 2019 Updated: 16 February 2021

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.

The Scirocco achieved a five star car rating in Euro NCAP tests.
