The 2014 Volkswagen Scirocco has been prepared for its 40th anniversary and is ready for its debut at the Geneva motor show.

The changes to the three-dor hatcback are many, including exterior and interior tweaks alongside a range of new engines with the smallest European option being a 92kW 1.40litre turbo.

The range topper however, will be the Scirocco R – powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder capable of developing 206kW of power. We should metion that this version may or may not be available in Europe seeing as how these specifications were mentioned for the Australian market, we’ll have to wait and see.

What we still don’t know yet is whether or not the facelifted Scirocco R will go the route of the Volkswagen Golf G and suffer power downgrades in particular weather conditions – such as those in Australia since we just mentioned them.

The facelifted Scirocco R uses a 8.0L/100km engine, which is slightly down from the current 2.0-litre turbo; the exact torque figure isn’t known but specialists expect it o be somewhere in the neighborhood of 380Nm.

The styling changes of the new Scirroco include revised headlights – bi-xenon coming as standard for the R, a revised front bumper with integrated ‘blades’, new rear tail-lights with LEDs as well as a new design for the boot lid with pop-out VW badge handle. The R models will get a new back bumper with integrated vents as well as a larger rear spoiler. The Scirocco R has new wheels as well, coming in 18- and 19-inch sizes, with five new colors being added to the list for a total of 13 hues.

On the inside, the Scirocco gets dash-top gauges as a send to the first-generation Scirocco, as well as adding a new instrument cluster and new bucket seats.
