The Beetle coupe and convertible have a roomy-enough interior and decent driving experience. Though the ride is acceptable, it's a bit unsettled. Handling is responsive but not sporty, and gets sloppy in demanding conditions. The 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder has better performance and fuel economy than the 2.5-liter five-cylinder it replaced. Wind noise is excessive, rear visibility is limited, and the long clutch-pedal travel and wide center console compromise the driving position. Updates for 2016 include an available rearview camera and blind-spot detection. Reliability has been much below average.
