2012 Volkswagen Beetle: The Dash Manned Up

May 10, 2012

There's lots of talk about the 2012 Volkswagen Beetle being all butched up with its sportier exterior. But the real indication that it's not meant to be a chick car anymore? No flower vase for your Gerbera daisy. Instead you get this built-in tray on the dash for storing your manly smartphone, Costanza wallet and other manly paraphernalia. In all honesty though, I'm really digging the dash layout of this Beetle compared to, say, the 2006 New Beetle we tested.
