This car review is specific to this model, not the actual vehicle for sale.
The Volkswagen New Beetle is smart, stylish, and refined. It combines German engineering and performance with exceptional fit and finish, and it represents a good value. The Volkswagen New Beetle is a front-wheel drive car based off of the MK4 generation Golf/Jetta platform. Four passengers can be seated in this unmistakably classic vehicle, now available in two trim levels: S and SE. It is powered by a 150 hp 2.5-liter inline-five cylinder that is mated to a five-speed manual or six-speed automatic with manual gear selection. Safety features include front and side-impact airbags, antilock brakes, tire pressure monitoring system, and daytime running lights. For 2008, the Volkswagen New Beetle gets minor equipment changes, primarily deleting some standard luxury features to make the vehicle more competitive for its price range.
