2012 Volkswagen Beetle Long Term Road Test

2012 Volkswagen Beetle: People Like The Way It Looks

July 01, 2012


I've been driving the Beetle for about a week now and so far everybody who has commented on it has had favorable things to say. My daughter's 24-year old babysitter said "It's cute! But not bubbly cute like the old one." A guy friend of mine said he thought it looked "sleeker and more classic." An older guy outside the gym I go to said he liked the wheels and black paint. My wife thinks it looks pretty cool, too.

So heritage-based styling that still looks fresh and unique. I think this demonstrates one of the new Beetle's most appealing aspects.
