SOURCE: AutoweekVolkswagen Exec says Scirocco may come to the US afterall
Reports that Volkswagen might not bring the Scirocco sport hatch back to the United States (“Can That Plan,” AW, April 30) may be premature. VW of America vice president Adrian Hallmark had been quoted as saying the Scirocco isn’t needed in the States because it might cannibalize GTI hatchback sales.
Not so fast, says the home office. Scirocco remains on the U.S. dance card for late 2008; a final decision will come from company boss Martin Winterkorn in Germany, according to VW spokesman Hans-Gerd Bode. VW plans a huge product offensive at the 2008 Geneva show, so look for Winterkorn’s U.S. Scirocco call to come by then.
