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. The New Beetle and New Beetle convertible continue to be an automotive icon. 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. 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, anti-lock brakes, tire pressure monitoring system, and daytime running lights. For 2009, the Volkswagen New Beetle benefits from a Carefree Maintenance Program, standard equipment upgrades, and simplified trims. Also, the convertible is only available with a six-speed automatic transmission.
