It's round. It's adorable. It's a Beetle. Nothing else on the road looks like it. Looking for style? Buy a BMW. Looking for killer gas mileage? Buy a Prius. Looking for cavernous space? Buy any monster SUV. The Beetle gets good gas mileage, has better than average horsepower for a small car, and seats two comfortably - it actually seats four but IT IS a small car. A couple of notes about the convertible: all convertibles have a blindspot on both sides of the car when the top is up but this car also has blindspots when the top is down so always check twice before changing lanes; the trunk space is akin to the underseat space on an airplane. These were not deal breakers for me. The Beetle is a timeless classic that is safe, reliable, and so darned cute!
I absolutely loveee my car! this is my first car and I always dreamed of having a beetle of my own. The car has a great fit for a 5'6, southern belle like myself, if you have concerns with the comfort of the car, no worries! My boyfriend is 6'3 and weigh over 200 pounds, he's quite comfortable in the passenger seat but loves driving her just as much as me. LOL The aux is by far the best feature to me, Im a complete music lover! The interior design is beautiful, I get a lot of cool air with a/c. only minor issue I have is a high pitch squeak when I roll down the driver side window. Usually takes only $20 to fill my tank up which is a bonus. but in all I absolutely love my car, I would hope to grow old with her and drive her forever.
I always loved the Bettle retro design and the quality of VW interior. I drove golf and passat station wagon for the last 15 years. So I went for the Beetle this time. I am greatly disappointed! If you are short and with small feet (61/2, not that small!) you will have hard time adjusting to the break and gas pedals. Shifting to break takes longer, as the break is further to the left and is very high comparing to the gas pedal. Since I am 5'3" i struggle to have comfortable position in a deep seat, and reach to pedals in the same time. I have to drive with the pillow behind my back!! And I don't see well out of the car! Review mirrors are designed to be pretty but they are too big and they blocked my view on several occasions.
