2012 Volkswagen Beetle Turbo: Limited Rear Visibility
January 4, 2013
It is not easy backing out of a parking spot in the new Volkswagen Beetle. Not only is the C pillar very thick, but the rear head rest is enormous. The latter might be nice for your rare passenger, but not so good when trying to avoid backing into something or someone. A different design would be wise. Also not helping is our Beetle's lack of a rear-view camera. For $28,000 it should have one.
