The Volkswagen Scirocco 1.4 TSI 160 has won the prize for the best coupe available for under £25,000 at the What Car? 2013 awards.

It picked up the gong for qualities that include it being "fast and fun, with a superb chassis and lusty power delivery," according to the magazine's review.

The list price was £21,450, although those seeking an approved Volkswagen may wish to find a used one to purchase it at a cheaper price.

It comes with a top speed of 135 mph and goes from 0-60 mph in eight seconds, while offering fuel economy of 53.3 mpg.

What Car? also praised the internal comfort and smooth handling of the vehicle, along with its good safety features and overall design quality.

It is not the first time the Scirocco range has picked up an award, with the 1.4 TSI 122 PS model securing the best sports car award in the inaugural Parkers' New Car Awards in 2011.
