2002 Volkswagen New Beetle Turbo S 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


I was originally looking at a Jetta
GLI, but when I saw that my dealership
had the Turbo S, I had to test drive
it. All I can say is, SOLD! The quality
of this car is top notch. VW went out
of their way to make this NB solid. The
interior styling is superb and the
exterior is agressive. The rear could
have used an RSI style wing, though.
Still, this car screams "class".
Driving it's a blast. The
acceleration is astounding. Turn off
the ESP, though, and take offs are a
scream. No lack of power here. This car
makes passing easy. The Turbo S is
the best car I've ever

Best Features

Heated leather seats, 8 speaker stereo system, Brushed aluminum accents and pedals. Sun/moon roof. Power everything.

Worst Features

Rear RSI style wing would improve overall style. A CD player should be standard. Needs a much bigger tachometer, and an oil preasure and boost gauge should be included.
