2007 Volkswagen New Beetle 2.5 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl 6A)

Review

I drove the car from Arizona to Mississippi and back. I got 24 to 30 MPG on the trip driving at an average speed of 75MPH on the interstate. I get 23 - 24 MPG driving around Phoenix on a daily basis. I love the torque. It is hard not to spin the tires from a full stop. I get some strange looks from the Mustang owners when that happens. I am 6'3" and have lots of head room but I had to remove the center arm rest to make room for my elbows. Now there is a big hole in the console but I'm comfortable. The road noise is the one thing I wish was better. Thankfully Phoenix put rubberized asphalt on all the freeways. It is very fun to drive.

Favorite Features

Engine performance and gas mileage. I think the MPG improves the faster you drive.

Suggested Improvements

Do more to cut road noise. Provide a model without the center arm rest.
