The redesigned 2012 Volkswagen Beetle feels like the expected return of an old friend. It has the traditional look that will appeal to the faithful beetle, but sporting a visual modernity, new Beetle buyers in the fold (or at least those that recovery of interest during the long reign of the New Beetle lost) should win.
It is a very good and the passenger instead of a Mini Cooper, which was not scratching his head in cold blood and or suffer ergonomics frustrating. The optional navigation system is easy to use, despite its small screen, limited use. Fender Premium sound system, on the other hand, is worth the extra cost and offers impressive sound quality.

With this engine is also less sophisticated rear suspension that results in less dynamic handling the Turbo model. As a result, five-cylinder is to get if you just want a beetle at a lower price and no matter how much driving.
