With a new, more aggressive design, more spacious interior, plus a pair of tried and true powerplants, the 2012 Volkswagen offers a fresh new alternative for buyers shopping around for a cool compact. Against the likes of the MINI Cooper and Fiat 500, the Beetle holds its own, with a base price just under the MINI, and more practical usability than that of the diminutive FIAT's.
The popular Volkswagen Beetle is completely redesigned for 2012. Most noticeable is the exterior restyle, which incorporates a lower, flatter roofline and more steeply raked windshield. The look is more reminiscent of the very first Beetle of 1938. The car is four inches wider and six inches longer than its predecessor. Also different is the name: the 'New' has been dropped from this Beetle's moniker. Inside is a wealth of metal-look plastic and chrome, and the dashboard is much narrower than before, which means an increase in interior cabin space. The charming bud vase is no longer present.
Volkswagen went way back to the drawing board with its reimagining of the 2012 Beetle. The new Beetle--which is not to be called a 'New Beetle'--draws its inspiration from the original car of 1938, but with a lower, flatter roofline. This gives the car a more aggressive stance. Overall dimensions have grown, which translates to more interior room for passengers. Those passengers get a combination of retro simplicity in the gauge layout, elegance in the quality of cabin materials and high-tech in the available gizmos and gadgets.
