"mid-cycle' in this case, means almost 6 years! Since the current generation came out in 2008.
Just like the 'aging" Tiguan, the Scirocco still looks really good. I saw a few of them in Europe over the years and they look great in person.
Especially inside, where the only visible changes seem to be the steering wheel and the air vents.
One thing has not change though; we are still NOT getting it...
