The hottest hatch of them all?
Inside the Scirocco R looks pretty much the exact same as the regular Scirocco. You have the same thick leather bucket seats to hold you firm while you’re twisting around corners, or even settling in nicely when the brunt of the acceleration throws you back, although they do have the “R” insignia on the headrest.
The majority of the interior consists of plastic cabinets and felt rubber material surrounding the entire dashboard and console area.
The three spoked steering wheel has a small “R” logo near the bottom, and there’s a brushed aluminum panel stretching across the main dash with the “R” logo on the end.
Realistically the only major change inside comes from the central speedometer with the purple needles that rev all the way to the end when you start up the Scirocco R. And that’s pretty much all there is to it. If you weren’t happy with the interior of the original Scirocco (or even the Golf), then there’s nothing new in here to change your mind. Except for the sound coming from the very audible rear exhausts.
There’s not much sound isolation, but then again the Scirocco R isn’t exactly a Grand Tourer. In fact, sitting inside the Scirocco R makes you feel like you’re driving a very souped-up tuner hatch. You’ll either love that feeling or completely hate it.
