Parkers overall rating: 4.5 out of 5 4.5

Based on an extremely rigid structure the Scirocco comes with six airbags, Isofix mountings in the rear seats, electronic stability control (or ESP) as standard and hazard lights that flash under emergency braking. So it's no surprise that it was awarded the maximum five star Euro NCAP crash test rating in 2009. An alarm and immobiliser fitted as standard should keep it secure.

Although it's a coupe, Volkswagen Scirocco practicality isn't too bad. The boot is a useful 292 litres - only 58 litres less than the Golf on which it's based. But while the load area is a good size it's not easy to access. It's deep and the very high boot lip results in a luggage space that's almost like a box that can only be accessed from above. There's also no release button on the tailgate so frustratingly the only way to open the boot is via the key fob or a button on the drivers door.

There's good storage up front though with a decent sized glovebox, twin cupholder, central cubby and large door pockets.
