    Volkswagen US CEO Wants The Scirocco

    One of the vehicles that many auto enthusiasts in the U.S. have been clamoring for the past few years is the Volkswagen Scirocco, a small coupe based on the Golf platform. But, when the next Scirocco comes around, we could be getting it.

    VW Group of America's CEO, Jonathan Browning told Automotive News that he is lobbying to bring the Scirocco here.

    "That's a piece of the lineup that I would dearly love to see here."

    Browning explained that when current Scirocco was launched in 2008, the financial crisis was in full swing and Volkswagen saw there would be too much risk with launching it in the U.S. at the time.

    Browning also revealed that there is a chance the diesel powered Volkswagen Alltrack might make its way to North America as well.

    Sharp looking little 2 door. I remember the old Scirocco that was here in the US was very popular. I am sure there are some that would love to get this car here and then sup it up.

    The Diesel Alltrack would be a smart move to have here also since VW has a pretty good name for diesel cars.

    Seems awfully late in the current Scirocco product cycle to get halfway serious about this.

    We're likely to get the next Scirocco, which is due out sometime next year.
