Volkswagen has decided to return to the small two-door 2+2 coupe sector, which it abandoned in the 1970s when the Scirocco went out of production.

A prototype will appear at the Paris Show at the end of this month and the definitive model is due in 2008.

Power will come from further developments of the 1.4-litre twin-charge engine, with talk of 170 and 210 bhp versions.
