Volkswagen Sedán. 1985–2003 (prod. 21,529,464 all Käfer/Type 1). 2-door sedan. R/R, 1584 cm³ (F4 OHV). Final incarnation of Käfer, called Sedán officially in México but usually nicknamed vocho. Last of the original Type 1, killed by changing emissions laws in México and a requirement for taxis to have four doors (prior to that, the Sedán was a popular cabbie choice).
