This is our second Beetle and the improvements are extrodinary. Our previous, 2000 hard top in Cyber Green, was nice but the new 5 cyl engine and 6 speed auto are far superior. Our fuel economy is actually better now, 27 mpg vs. 24 mpg for the 2000. Our only complaint so far is the trunk lid that is tough to close.
New interior design with better cupholders and red mood lighting.
We would like to have more color choices, my wife really wanted a green convertible but settled for the Harvest Moon Beige.
