|This new car needs to be VWs sports car if it is called Scirocco. The look is wrong. Way wrong. Not Scirocco at all.
Over the years VWs have become heavy and over sized. The Golf 5 is near twice the weight of the Golf 1. The Scirocco had a charm of its own. It was light on its feet and fun to drive. This IROC has no DNA of the old Scirocco at all. This IROC does not appeal to the same type of driver as the Scirocco. So why call it a Scirocco at all. A new name would be way more appropriate. Then we may cut it some slack. This IROC is just one more big heavy VW blob. What is the point of it other than it is more like what the next Golf GTI could be like. If it is going to look like a Golf call it a Golf.
You don't need to drive it to know that the IROC is no RX8, S2000, or even a TC. The IROC is a boy racer BOX CIVIC with way more weight added to it. Why?
