Back in 2020, I took a look at a European-market Corrado G60. While it was pretty similar to the North American-specification drivetrain, there were subtle differences that set it apart from the US versions:
Today we’re looking at a Corrado that also hails from Europe, but this one is quite different. Pop the hood and you’ll find not a supercharged G60 or a 2.8-liter VR6, but in fact the 9A 2.0-liter 16V we saw in the GTI, GLI, and Passat. Let’s take a look!

1993 VW Corrado 16V Euro Import
Vehicle Original VIN : WVWZZZ50ZPK002638
This awesome looking 1993 Corrado 16V was just imported from Europe where it went through a complete overhaul, paint and body look amazing in its original Brambleberry color, the cloth interior is in excellent condition and the 2.1 16V engine has been gone through from top to bottom and makes this little car zip along. This model was never sold in the USA, so now is your chance to own not only a rare, excellent condition Corrado but one that is truly unique as it was previously never even available.

So while the dealer claims it’s a 2.1, without hearing about some crazy modifications I’d assume it’s just a stock 2.0 9A. The cloth interior that wasn’t available in the US is neat to see, and it doesn’t have a sunroof or electric seatbelts, either. The seller claims the color is “Brambleberry” (Bramble Metallic), but that wasn’t available until 1994 – so I think it’s either Bordeaux Pearl Effect (C3Y) or Dark Burgandy Pearl Effect (C3U), but it’s really hard to tell from the photos. I’m not a fan of either the badgeless grille or wheels, personally, but both are pretty easy fixes. It’s also got an aftermarket sound system, which might be a little harder to unwind. I do wonder what the driving experience of this car is like; the G60 was faulted for being too slow, but has more torque and horsepower than the 16V did, and the Corrado tips the scales a bit farther than the GTI did. Still, I bet it’s a hoot, and should get you lots of attention at VW shows. Pricing? Well, so far bids are in the mid-teens, which is about on point for a clean Corrado these days, despite the not-particularly-good photos. Interestingly, pop over to the dealer’s site and they’ve got much better photos and an $18,000 asking price. That’s steep, but probably with a slightly better presentation, this car could hit that in the right marketplace – though the VR6 is probably more compelling at that price point.
