Volkswagen will show off the new Scirocco and a Golf TDI Hybrid concept at the 2008 Geneva Motor Show next week. The Scirocco will come with four engines, in TDI and TSI forms, ranging from a 1.4 TSI (120bhp) to a 2.0T (197bhp). Adaptive chassis control will also be available, and prices are expected to be slightly more than the equivalent three-door Golf.

CAR Online will bring you the first pictures of the Scirocco on Monday night, but until then you’ll have to make do with details of VW’s eco-friendly announcements. The company went green with envy at the 2007 Frankfurt show when Mercedes rolled out 19 fuel efficient cars. Now it’s VW’s turn to prove it’s a friend of Mother Nature.

The Golf TDI Hybrid concept is claimed to achieve a staggering 83.1mpg. It can run on electric power only, while a seven-speed DSG gearbox is tuned for better fuel consumption and emissions. Don’t expect to see the system in this generation of Golf, though: the Mk5 Golf will become Mk6 at the Paris Motor Show later in 2008.
