VW Scirocco

vw-Scirocco The Scirocco is the latest in a long line of poor VW names for vehicles.  Aside from the fact that no one can spell it, there’s the whole issue with no one being able to pronounce it without help.  And, of course, what do you think of when you hear “Scirocco”?  Well nothing, of course, except for the fact that it’s a stupid name.

Specs are fuzzy still, but it looks like hte base model will be sporting a 115 HP 4 banger, and the “big daddy” will have a 250 HP VR6.  To me the specs don’t matter much, because even with all the cladding, this looks like one ugly vehicle.  Couple that with the silly name and VW’s well-deserved reputation for unreliability, and this one doesn’t look like a winner.
