Volkswagen recently introduced the facelifted Scirocco but new details are starting to emerge about the next-generation model.

According to CAR Magazine, Volkswagen is considering two different proposals for the car. One would see the model become a Golf coupe while the other would position the car a sportier model that is further distanced from the Golf.

Insiders are also indicating the distinctive styling could be toned down because some believe it is "too polarizing."

The styling tweaks might not win everyone over but the engines could as they are rumored to include a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder with outputs of 227 bhp (169 kW), 300 bhp (223 kW) and 330 bhp (246 kW). We can also expect an assortment of less interesting mills including a 1.4-liter with 123 bhp (91 kW), a 1.8-liter with 178 bhp (132 kW) and a 2.0-liter diesel with outputs of 148 bhp (110 kW) and 182 bhp (135 kW).

Volkswagen has remained relatively tight-lipped about the next-generation model but speculation suggests it could arrive as early as 2017.
