When you think of the Scirocco, ‘family car’ may not be the first thought that comes to mind. But for Dinesh, a regular with the Singapore Armed Forces, the ‘Roc is more than just a sporty coupe. His Volkswagen is one that’s allows him to spend precious time with the people who matter most.
Hi Dinesh, that’s a nice looking car! How long have you had it?
I’ve had the Scirocco for about 3 years now. I purchased it in 2015 and haven’t looked back since!
Cool, how do you find it?
It’s been great! It’s super responsive and the drive is amazing. Some of my friends like to upgrade their cars, but when they took my car out for a spin, they mentioned that they could really feel the difference. It’s twincharged, and the power to weight ratio is great. You can also really feel the drive.
“It’s the perfect size for my family.
It’s a family coupe for sure!”
Why did you decide on the Scirocco?
Well, I was driving a Japanese make before this and I realised that fuel consumption was really heavy. So I was keen on finding an affordable continental car, and once I took the 1.4 TSI Scirocco out for a test drive, I knew I found the right car. All that was left was making sure my wife was okay with it too! (laughs)
Yes, definitely! And so does my little one. He likes pretending that it’s his car! (laughs) Isn’t that right, Preihan? (Preihan agrees excitedly in the background)
Aww, do you drive your family around a lot?
Yes, we spend a lot of time travelling in the ‘Roc, whether it’s heading out together for dinner or the movies, or even just ferrying my son to school and back.
Sounds like it’s the right fit for your family!
Yup, and it’s surprisingly spacious too! It’s the perfect size for my family. All I can say is, it’s a family coupe for sure!
