2003 Volkswagen New Beetle Sport Edition.jpg

Volkswagen New Beetle. 1998–2011 (prod. over 1,000,000 to 2008). 3-door saloon, 2-door convertible. F/F, 1595, 1984 cm³ petrol, 1896 cm³ diesel (I4 OHC), 1390, 1781 cm³ (I4 DOHC), 2324 cm³ (V5 DOHC), 2480 cm³ (I5 DOHC), 3189 cm³ (V6 DOHC). Out of a range of very rational cars, Volkswagen introduces one that is very emotive. Taking cues from Käfer but on a Golf IV platform, New Beetle popularizes modern–retro design, penned at its Californian studio. Front-engined, water-cooled, with opening hatchback. Not practical, due to less luggage space at back, but a cheerful end-of-the-century vehicle.

Manufacturing location: Puebla, Puebla, México

Marque: Volkswagen | Predecessors: Volkswagen Sedán (1985–2003), Volkswagen Fusca (1993–6) | Successor: Volkswagen Beetle
