CEO of VW Group of America wants the Scirocco in the United States

Article by Christian Andrei, on April 9, 2012

It seems that the Volkswagen Scirocco still has some chances to make it to the United States and the latest man (and one of the most important) is Jonathan Browning, CEO of VW Group of America. Browning said in an interview at the New York Auto Show that he is trying to bring the Scirocco to the United States as the stylish coupe is a piece of the lineup that he would dearly love to see there (U.S.).

Still, if the Scirocco will make it to the U.S. this will happen in when the facelifted version will arrive. This will be the same move made by Bmw with the X1, which arrived in the United States after it received a facelift. For those who don’t know, the Scirocco was last sold in the U.S. back in 1988. In Europe, the new Vw Scirocco made its debut in 2008 and despite the financial crisis, the car was a success.

Besides the Vw Scirocco, Browning and top marketer Tim Mahoney also dropped hints about VW lineup plans and both pointed to the Alltrack Concept on display at the VW stand. If it arrives in the United States, this vehicle will take on cars such as the Subaru Outback.
