Improved beetle better than ever.

Great highway gas mileage, the trim on the inside is very unique and nice looking. A little more leg room in the backseat would be nice but overall inside is roomy and comfortable. Performance is highly satisfactory. Get up and go outdoes other vehicles on the road. The manufacturer made the front end longer so now the battery is not tightly tucked in and is much easier to get to than in previous years' beetles.

10 stars for the beetle classic.

I love my car. I recently bought a VW beetle (classic edition) and I couldn’t be more happy with my decision. It drives really well and looks awesome. For such a compact car, there is actually a lot of room inside and it is very comfortable. I love the classic edition, it has great interior features as well as beautiful rims. The turbo feature is awesome as well, it helps while merging on the highway.

The Beetle is a compact and fuel efficient car good for anyone living in an urban area.

I love my Beetle because it is compact and there is always a parking spot available for me. My Beetle is also very good on gas - I can typically drive between 500 and 750 miles before needing to refill my tank. The only thing I don't like about it is that it is a coupe so if you're a taller person it is difficult to get into the backseat but this is not a major concern of mine.
