2012 Volkswagen Beetle: No Need To Hide My Face

June 22, 2012

"It's not a girl's car. It's not a girl's car ..." Mike Magrath wrote in our long-term intro to describe his thoughts as he drove it for the first time. And based on commentary I've read, it seems this topic is on a lot of readers' minds. Given that VW made a point to man-up its new Beetle, it's a fair discussion point.

I've only been driving our Beetle for a couple days, but here's my two cents: So far I'm enjoying it. I don't feel like I'm driving a "girl's car." Rather, it just seems more like a Golf/Jetta/GTI with cooler styling. And I'm pretty happy with that.
