Volkswagen Beetle

2018
Volkswagen Beetle 2018 2-door hatchback Trim Shown: 2018 S 2-door hatchback FWD Automatic
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 that we tested had good performance and fuel economy. it has been replaced by a new 2.0-liter turbo engine for 2018. Wind noise is excessive, rear visibility is limited, and the long clutch-pedal travel and wide center console compromise the driving position. Recent updates include available blind-spot detection.

Volkswagen Beetle 2017 Trim Shown: 2017 Dune
The Beetle is roomier than the previous-generation car and drives decently, but VW skipped on a few details. While the ride is compliant, it's a bit unsettled. Handling is responsive but not sporty, and can get sloppy in demanding conditions. The five-cylinder engine delivered enough thrust but sounded gruff and unrefined. We got a less-than-stellar 26 mpg overall with the five-speed manual. A new 1.8-liter turbo four-cylinder has replaced the 2.5-liter engine. Wind noise is excessive, rear visibility is limited, and the long clutch-pedal travel and wide center console compromise the driving position. A convertible is also available.

Volkswagen Beetle 2013 Trim Shown: 2013 Coupe
The New Beetle is a modern hatchback based on the Golf and styled like the VW Bug of yore. Like its ancestor, a convertible model is also available. We found the ride composed and handling fairly nimble, but the clownlike high roofline and forward windshield make it hard to block the sun. The rear is cramped, though the seats fold for increased cargo space. Various engines have been available, including an anemic base four-cylinder that was replaced by a gruff and thirsty five; plus a couple of turbocharged four-cylinders and an efficient four-cylinder turbodiesel. The Beetle was redesigned for 2012, with a more normal driving position, but less nimble suspension.
