VOLKSWAGEN BEETLE Used Car Review

Pros

Cons

  • Original Beetle is a widely beloved classic
  • Modern mechanicals of newer Beetles
  • Composed, comfortable ride of 2013's The Beetle
  • The Beetle's willing engine and refined gearbox
  • Conditions of original Beetles will vary wildly - as will prices
  • Design of modern Beetles a case of form over function
  • Tight rear seats of modern Beetles
  • Less practical, less sophisticated than a Golf
