2012 Volkswagen Beetle: Little Changes, Big Difference
December 03, 2012
The looks of the earlier Beetle left me cold. Now, I love the way the 2012 Beetle looks and I can't say exactly why. I'm amazed at how the effect is so different by redrawing a few lines.
I thought that taking this picture would help me understand what the designers did that changed it so much. But at least in this picture, the differences don't seem dramatic.
So I took a second picture from the front and the differences are more apparent.
The elongated hood and the lowered roofline are pretty clear in this picture.
